A message from Ariane Jackson, Licensed Acupuncture Physician, owner of Palm Harbor Oriental Medicine:
“I have done over 65,000 acupuncture treatments on patients in Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, East Lake, and surrounding areas. I have introduced several thousand people to acupuncture, and I know the questions someone has when they are considering getting acupuncture.”
In general, acupuncture is beneficial to anyone. It reduces or eliminates pain and stress, improves relaxation, sleep, energy, mood, and metabolism. For specific information on conditions and how they respond to acupuncture click here.
I have been treating patients for almost twenty years. My husband joined me ten years ago. I have been involved in healthcare since I trained as a nurse in my native Switzerland in the 1960’s. For more information click here.
Some insurance policies cover acupuncture. We will be happy to check if you have coverage. Otherwise, we have a very simple fee schedule. Depending on the problem, the price ranges from $50 to $75 per session. This price includes any additional services such as therapeutic massage, heat lamp, etc. Supplements and herbs are additional but very reasonably priced.
An acupuncture session consists of inserting thin needles, about the thickness of a human hair, in different places. The needles are not inserted very deeply and are usually painless. The needles are left in for about 20 minutes then removed. For information on frequency of Tx’s, additional modalities, etc. click here.

Acupuncture is one of the therapies that are used in the practice of Oriental Medicine. It consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points for the treatment of specific health problems.
Oriental Massage is also known as Tui-Na or acupressure. It utilizes massage techniques that are based on Oriental Medicine principles and acupuncture points. When an Acupuncture Physician performs massage they do so as part of a full diagnosis.
Oriental Medicinals are usually referred to as Chinese Herbs. Most of them are herbs but some are minerals and a few animal products are used. These oriental medicinals are prescribed in accordance with full diagnosis of the patient’s condition.
Halotherapy is therapy which makes use of salt. Numerous forms of halotherapy have been known of and used from millennia. One finds the first mentions of spa resorts in Poland in records dating from the twelfth century. They relate to bathing in mineral waters.
My friend had to persuade me to go see Ariane. I just did not see how sticking needles in me could help my PMS and cramps. Now I wish I had gone sooner. I saw a difference after the first treatment and gradually my symptoms stayed away for longer and longer. Ariane really took the time to listen to me. She is great.
