ISLAND ACUPUNCTURE & ASSOCIATES
RATE CHANGE NOTIFICATION
June 1, 2019
Dear Valued Island Acupuncture clients,
It has been pleasure to be your Acupuncturist during my 14 years in operation here on Nantucket. I am extremely appreciative of your continued patronage and sometimes find it hard to believe I have been an Acupuncturist for now 19 years!
For the last 5 years, I have continued to charge the same rates for my services in spite of rising expenses. As much as I would like to maintain my rates for another year, I find that I must increase them to provide continued quality services to my valued clients. I personally find it difficult to do this increase but obviously need to maintain operational expenses as a business as well.
Over the years, my level of training, experience and higher education courses in Acupuncture techniques, herbal medicine, safety and ethics has continued. For those whom are unable to leave work during business hours, I have tried to be flexible by offering evening hours on Tuesdays. I have also purchased new Acupuncture equipment and products to aid in providing you the highest level of services, as I believe all these things aide in bringing you the highest quality and level of professionalism that should be expected of your Acupuncturist.
To my valued clients,effective July 1st, my rates for new clients will be $ 170 for Initial Evaluations and $ 115 for Follow-up visits. For my current/past clients, I extend you an extra grace period at the current rates. Rates for existing clients will change effective August 1, 2019.I value you as my client and want to continue serving you. If you have any questions or concerns about this increase, please don’t hesitate to ask.
