Maintenance Plans are set up on a monthly autopay schedule. Any plan can be cancelled at any time. Once cancelled, your membership will stay active until the last day of your paid month to allow time for any remaining sessions to be used. There are no refunds or reimbursements for cancelled membership plans.

All sessions that come with your membership must be used within your membership window. There are no refunds, extensions, or roll-overs for any unused sessions. Sessions cannot be transferred to another person.

All Membership Plans EXCLUDING Maintenance Plans are allowed an unlimited amount of extra sessions at member-only rates.

Once your membership expires, you may choose to renew it, join a different membership, enroll in a maintenance plan, or simply schedule individual treatments as needed.

Herbal recommendations are provided by Dr. Cat, but herbs themselves are not included in the price of membership or other sessions due to price variations in herbs. Dr. Cat will refer you to a San Diego-based herbal pharmacy to pay for and pick-up your herbal prescriptions. Herbs work in conjunction with acupuncture and can strengthen or elongate the effects of acupuncture. It is highly recommended you follow any herbal guidelines given to you.
