Private Acupuncture Treatments at Tribe

1821 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL

What to expect and what’s changed as we reopen

A one hour appointment in a private room includes intake and treatment. The Acupuncturist may use any modalities she feels are clinically appropriate, and that the patient agrees to, including: TCM style acupuncture, Japanese Meridian Therapy style acupuncture, moxabustion, gua sha, cupping, wet cupping, Eastern nutrition or lifestyle counseling. 

A 1.5 hour treatment starts with an intuitive conversation to light the path. Together we will connect to our higher selves. The treatment portion may include any of the above modalities or other shamanic work.

As we reopen in the time of COVID-19 please note the following changes:

  • Masks. You must wear a mask upon entering the space and during your treatment. No mask, no treatment. 
  • Be aware of timing. Tribe’s goal is that you do not cross paths with another patient while in the clinic space. Please be mindful of your appointment time; avoiding coming too early or late helps us direct traffic. Likewise, once your appointment is complete, please exit the space as promptly as possible. 
  • Covid-19 screening. 24 hours before your scheduled appointment you will receive a patient advisory, assessment, and acknowledgement form via email. Please fill it out online. It goes directly into your chart which I can then review at the start of the day, freeing up the time we have together.  Everyone will get an auricular temperature check upon arrival. If either your online check list or temperature check reveals possible COVID-19 symptoms your appointment will be cancelled and we will reevaluate a reschedule in 14 days.
  • Clinic Restructure. Following Public Health guidelines, appropriate cleaning is done before the start of clinic and between each patient. Please consider minimizing what you carry in. If you need to leave your room for any reason, please let me know so that I can clear the way for you.

Clinic Policies

Cancellation Policy

Please give at least 24 hours notice if cancelling appointments. You will never be required to pay for missed appointments. However, after missing or cancelling an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, twice in a year, you will be asked to make appointments only on the day you would like a treatment rather than in advance. If you would prefer to continue to make appointments in advance you may choose to pay, in full, for your missed or late-cancelled appointment. There will be no penalty for late cancellations due to COVID-19 symptoms.

Appointment Timing

Private Acupuncture treatments are scheduled in 1 hour or 1.5 hour blocks. Please arrive on time. If arriving late, the appointment will still be kept within the original parameter. For example, if the appointment is scheduled from 2pm-3pm even if the patient arrives at 2:15pm, the appointment will end at 3pm. 


Payment is due at the time of services rendered. If the patient would like to use insurance, a Superbill will be provided which the patient may turn into their insurance company for possible partial or full reimbursement.


Tuesdays: 2pm-9pm
