Life happens, and things come up, and we do understand, but if you need to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible, as your appointment time has been reserved just for you.
We understand things arise, but scheduled appointments are the clients’ responsibility. Running more than 15 minutes late, we will do our best to treat you, but there is a possibility that this may forfeit your scheduled appointment time.
In addition, we do reserve the right to charge for a no-show. We do our best to remind you of your appointment time with confirmation emails and text reminders, but it is your responsibility to know when your appointment time has been scheduled. Prompt arrival for your scheduled appointment time is much appreciated. WE CHARGE THE FULL TREATMENT AMOUNT FOR LATE CANCELLATIONS AND NO-SHOWS.

Acupuncture needles have nothing in common with hypodermic injection needles; the insertion process is typically painless, primarily when performed by a skilled acupuncturist like Lindsay at Garnet Moon Denver. Once inserted, people may experience a slight pricking sensation or other brief physical sensations such as numbness, heaviness, or distended feeling around the implantation area – all temporary effects that will pass quickly. Pre-sterilized disposable needles allow for safe treatment without any risk of contamination by disease.
Acupuncture is a powerful therapeutic tool with the potential to unlock hidden capabilities and restore balance within. By tapping into specific points on meridian pathways, acupuncture rebalances your body’s energy flow & provides relief from pain or other health issues. At Garnet Moon Denver, we have vast experience customizing treatment plans that help you naturally heal, regulate hormones, and set yourself up for success!

When it comes to holistic healing options such as acupuncture, holistic medicine, nutrition, reiki, and intuitive energy healing, we often suggest a series of treatments for optimal results. Acupuncture typically requires 10-16 sessions, while reiki & intuitive energy healing may require several more, depending on your unique needs. Additionally, all of our coaching packages require a minimum of at least three months’ commitment – however, let us help you design the perfect program tailored to meet your individual goals! Contact Lindsay today and book a complimentary call where she will be happy to answer any further questions regarding our services or treatment plans.
Generally, no acupuncture is very safe when performed by a licensed acupuncturist or medical doctor. One common side effect that can happen rarely is bruising at the needle insertion site. This is generally more commonly seen on the face, where the tissue bruises easily due to being thin, more sensitive skin.
No, acupuncture is not anything close to “dry needling.” “Dry needling” requires no licensure or specialized training and can cause significant danger due to its lack of proper needle insertion skills and depth knowledge. Acupuncture is recognized as a highly respected form of treatment by the AMA (American Medical Association) when performed by a licensed acupuncturist or medical doctor, and the AMA does not support “dry needling.” In fact, the AMA states, “dry needling” is dangerous due to lack of proper training and higher risk of serious injury. Acupuncturists undergo a required graduate-level education, thousands of hours of clinical training, and state licensure to practice.
Therefore, for those seeking pregnancy, fertility, or internal medicine treatment, we advise against attempting “dry needling”; instead – work with an appropriately trained and licensed professional who carries a lot less risk of injury to you.
Our initial visits for new acupuncture clients are booked for 75 minutes — due to our extensive intake to understand your medical history and goals and perform treatment on the same day. Each of our follow-up sessions for acupuncture is 45 minutes. Our reiki, womb healing, and intuitive energy healing sessions are 60 minutes. All of our coaching sessions are 60 minutes.
We take your safety very seriously, no matter the circumstances, including COVID. We only see one client at a time, wear a face mask, and welcome you to wear a face mask if you feel more comfortable. We also deep clean between clients to ensure that when you enter our space, it has been cleaned for germs and viruses, and we also cleanse our space from the energies of the last client session. So if you smell the amazing scent of sage when entering our office, you will know why … we love to cleanse our space, so good vibes are continuously circulating for a healing environment!
