Getting Started, Scheduling, and Policies

Whether you’ve tried acupuncture before or it’s your very first time with Traditional Chinese Medicine, you’re in for an equally rewarding experience.

To make your visit as productive as possible, please review the information below about pricing, cancellation and rescheduling policies, and insurance. If you are a new patient, read the information under “The First Visit” and download and complete the patient intake and consent forms at the right. Please bring these signed forms with you to your first appointment.

If you have questions about acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in general, we recommend reading the Questions & Answers section of our About Us page. If your question isn’t answered there, email us at and we’ll try our best to help.

512 Wellness provides acupuncture and herbal medicine in our clinic in downtown Austin.New patients should download and complete our intake and consent forms (available at the right) prior to arrival. If you are unable to fill them out ahead of time, please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early so that you can complete them in the clinic. Your first treatment usually lasts 90 minutes. Subsequent visits are usually about an hour.

We recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing to your session. While acupuncture doesn’t require any physical activity on your part, it always helps to be comfortable. Please have a small snack about thirty minutes before arriving. Also, we ask that you refrain from exercise for 2 hours before and after your visit.

Before your session, we’ll assess the areas in which you’d like improvement and determine the ways Traditional Chinese Medicine is right for you.

We’ll also familiarize you with the therapies of acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, moxabustion, cupping, and other remedies effective for your condition. Most importantly, we’ll answer any questions you may have about acupuncture and its role in a happier, healthier you.

During your session, you’ll find your acupuncture treatment very soothing. Many patients are surprised that the ultra-fine, disposable needles produce little sensation when placed. If any pain is felt, it is roughly the same as a mosquito bite (but without the itch afterward). The needles will be left in for approximately 30 minutes while you relax to soft music in a calming environment.

After your session, you may experience a feeling of deep relaxation. Welcome to a new approach in preventative health! Before you go, your acupuncturist will discuss future treatment goals with you based on your condition.

Insurance and Health Savings Plans

Some insurance providers do cover acupuncture and preventive wellness services, but check your policy regarding your individual coverage. 512 Wellness is happy to provide you with the proper forms to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. We gladly accept your Health Savings Plan (HSP) card and will provide insurance coded receipts for your records.

You may also call (512) 762-6521 to schedule an appointment. It’s likely we will be with a patient, so please leave a message and we will return your call as quickly as we can.

Cancellations, No Call/No Shows, and Late Arrivals

Please give us at least 24 hours notice if cancelling or rescheduling an appointment to avoid a $25 rebooking charge. If you miss your appointment without notification (no call/no show), we reserve the right to charge you the fee for the full session.

If you are running a little late, please let us know. You may keep the appointment, but please understand that we may not be able to extend your session if other patients are scheduled after you. As a consequence, you may not receive the benefit of a complete session. In either case, the full fee will apply.
