Hello Everyone,

I used to go all the way to Orlando to see an acupuncturist primarily because of the rate ($10) and it was a great experience he knew his craft and it was his passion. I went back a few days ago to get some knee pain worked on and the price has gone up to $25. He has added on other sections of his practice to include a "spa" atmosphere and I assume the price increase is due to the extra space he had to acquire. the only reason im looking in this area is due to the drive (1.5 hours).

I was curious if there are any acupuncturists in this area anyone recommends at a competing price like that or if I'm crazy to even ask. I know acupuncture is not typically covered by health insurance.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and I look forward to hearing from you.

I have seen several signs for Accupunture around the TB area.

Have you done a search?

That is a CRAZY price! You will NEVER find someone that cheap. They are charging at least $60 per visit. You will be lucky if you find someone at $50 per visit.

I have seen and searched but none of the searches bring up prices. Good to know that the $25 is still a good price. I guess I will need to consider the hassle of driving vs cost of a Appt if 50-60 is the norm.

Id have to leave work an hour early + gas to get to Orlando and back.

$10 is per what? Visit? Like the above poster said that is dirt cheap.

My neighbor goes to one in St Pete and I remember him mentioning about $80 per visit. He was happy with it. I can ask his opinion, if you want.
