The clinic is located at 6782 Germantown Ave. just south of Carpenter Lane on the west side of the street. Please park in the street if your appointment is before 4:30pm. After 4:30pm and all day on Saturday and Sunday, you may also park in the lot behind the fire station located at the corner of Carpenter Lane and Germantown Ave. The entrance to the large (don't use the small) parking lot is on your right shortly after you turn onto Carpenter Lane. After 3pm weekdays, the Santander Bank parking lot at the end of the block is available for your use.
Acupuncture appointments are scheduled every 30 minutes, and we generally run on time if our patients are on time. Acupuncture takes place on the first floor. Each appointment lasts approximately an hour. Plant-Based Nutrition Consults are 1.25 hours, Reflexology/Reiki 90 minutes, Myofascial Release (MFR) appointments are 1 hour and Massages are 1 hour. PLEASE NOTE: Myofascial Release, Reflexology, Massage and Plant-Based Nutrition consults are up one flight of fairly steep stairs that have handrails.
On your FIRST acupuncture appointment, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time to complete brief paperwork, or in advance of your visit, fill out the forms on our website under the "New to CAMA" tab on the homepage and bring the forms in with you. The cost for acupuncture $55, however if you purchase a Care Plan it could decrease the cost to as low as $42. Consultations to find out which Care Plan is right for you are free.
If you are coming to CAMA for FERTILITY or CANCER SUPPORT acupuncture, our pricing structure is different due to the highly specialized nature of this work. The fee for an out-of-plan visit is $65. Our Care Plans offer better value reducing the price to as low as $47.
For acupuncture, wearing loose comfortable clothing that enables us to easily reveal forearms and lower legs is best.
There is a one time $20 first visit charge for administrative overhead. We accept cash, checks and credit cards, however the minimum charge for a credit card is $35. Finally, in order to keep our prices low, we collect a 100% refundable $20 "missed visit deposit" on your first visit. If at any time you wish to terminate your care at CAMA, we will happily refund the $20 if it was not previously applied to a missed visit (less than 24 hours notice) or you may choose to donate it to our Compassionate Care Fund, to help others receive care they cannot afford. In sum, we collect a $40 fee on your first visit, $20 of which is refundable upon request if not used previously to pay for a missed visit.
Finally, if you need to contact your practitioner the day of your appointment because you must cancel or will be more than 10 minutes late, PLEASE CALL OR TEXT THEM DIRECTLY, and not the main number for the clinic. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we may not be able to honor your acupuncture appointment time and you will owe the $20 missed visit fee. Below are practitioner phone numbers. PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF YOUR PRACTITIONER'S NUMBER:
We look forward to serving you and supporting your good health!!
