About Inner Renewal
Inner Renewal uses acupuncture and herbal therapies to restore healthy function to the body and mind from the inside out.
Acupuncture provides the tools to restore balance to areas where disease and illness are originating. It allows us to stay in harmony with our highest, most positive direction – removing the heavy, negative energies that come with frustration, disappointment and anxiety. The results are deep and long-lasting health, vitality and peacefulness.
Our specialties are women’s health, fertility, treatment and prevention of colds and flus, digestive disorders, emotional imbalances and health optimization. We create customized treatment plans for each person to help them meet their health goals and ultimately to stay well.

What to Expect
Does acupuncture hurt?
A common misconception is that acupuncture will hurt. This may be because there is an idea that acupuncture uses the types of needles used for shots or vaccines. This is not the case, as acupuncture uses sterile, medical grade acupuncture pins. These are very fine – more or less the size of a human hair. Sometimes a minor sensation is felt during insertion of the pin. If it is uncomfortable be sure to let your acupuncturist know. The dominating sensation that results from acupuncture is a palpable feeling of calm and well-being. It is a pathway to your inner peace.
Do I need to believe in acupuncture for it to work?
There is no need to believe in acupuncture to enjoy and appreciate the results. We welcome your skepticism and curiosity, and are happy to discuss and share what we know.
Do you work in collaboration with other health providers?
We are very fortunate here in the Seattle area because we enjoy a culture of respectful collaboration amongst healthcare providers of many disciplines. Holistic health is achieved by exploring the multifaceted nature of life. At Inner Renewal, we are honored to work within a collection of professionals who share the values of delivering excellent, specific and appropriate treatment to our patients. When needed, we are happy to refer you to providers whom we trust and respect.
Do you accept health insurance?
We are in the same boat as you and also want to rely on our health insurance to ‘cover us’ when our health care needs exceed manageable costs for our family. In this changing health insurance climate we are doing our best to accommodate.
We require your partnership when billing to your insurance plan. We will submit your claim to your insurance company if you are a member of Regence and Blue Cross Blue Shield. You will share the responsibility of pursuing reimbursement.
Superbills will be given so that out of network benefits can be accessed. Please let us know whether you prefer email or paper copies.
How long does a typical appointment last?
The typical first appointment is an hour and a half long. It includes a detailed intake interview that informs us what your health care needs are, and the best way that we can help you. The interview itself will last between 30 and 45 minutes, followed by a treatment time of 40-50 minutes. Subsequent treatments typically last between 1 to 1.5 hours depending on complexity of need. We never rush when it comes to your health care and well-being – and we recommend that give yourself additional time following your appointment to enjoy the results of your treatment.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
We will email you some intake forms that we would appreciate you completing and bringing to your first appointment. Please also bring up-to-date insurance information (if applicable). Co-payments and payments will be collected at time of service.
Please do bring a willingness to ask questions that you may have about your treatment and our process.
