Frequently Asked Questions


Community acupuncture is a movement that aims to make acupuncture affordable and accessible. Patients receive acupuncture in a shared space with other patients and the rate is based on an affordable sliding scale. Distal needling techniques are often used. Those with back pain or complex conditions are highly encouraged to schedule a private session.

what is included in a private session?

Our private sessions are very focused and include several forms of body work for a complete experience. We offer two types of privates sessions: 1)Private Basic includes full body acupuncture, electrical stimulation, and cupping; 2) Private Package includes all basic session services with the addition of  a 30 minutes massage (Swedish, Shiatsu & Deep Tissue). Privates are highly recommended if you have back pain or a complex condition that requires in-depth discussion.

how does herbal medicine work, and is it safe?

The use of plant medicine has been in existence for thousands of years. Many prefer to address their health concerns with herbal medicine to avoid the side effects of pharmaceuticals. Different herbal traditions utilize their own unique methods. With traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), herbs are usually combined into a formula for a synergistic effect. Powder extracts have grown in popularity for their convenience, however the use of raw herbs is the most potent form. All herbs dispensed at Remedy Wellness are sulfite-free, species-verified, and tested for heavy metals and dangerous pesticides.  

may i fill out new patient forms prior to my initial appointment?

We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to your initial appointment to fill out the required forms. While not required, filling out the forms prior to your appointment helps your session go smoothly. Please contact us, and we will gladly email them to you upon request.

What is your missed appointment & cancellation policy?

We are a sliding-scale community clinic and no-shows take away slots from those who need them. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment. Failure to do so will result in an $30 fee and forfeiture of any promotional vouchers. We do our best to make time for you and expect the same.

Wiley was very personable and helpful in deciding what type of experience I wanted. It was an empty the morning I went (which was nice) and I felt wonderful the next day! I plan to go back for a private session, but won't mind going for the community acupuncture again.

I had such a great experience at Remedy Wellness Studio, and so did my boyfriend who came with me for acupuncture treatment as well. The last time I had acupuncture was at a different studio, with a different acupuncturist, and I experienced an unexpected anxiety attack and had been really scared to go back to acupuncture, even though it had been very healing and helpful for me in the past. Wylie's studio is so peaceful, welcoming, and comforting, I immediately felt safe. I appreciate his thorough intake process where he asked questions of me about why I was there and about my previous experiences. I have another appointment scheduled and am truly looking forward to it. Thank you, Wylie!

Really awesome space and herbalist/acupuncturist here! First time here, and Wylie seems truly dedicated to healing and community. Herbs and acupuncture treatment have helped me fend off this cold, and electoral despair, as well.

Wylie is a such a skilled and compassionate practitioner. He listens well and provides focused treatments to relieve your pain. His acupuncture needling is very unique as he threads it through multiple layers to get to the root of your pain for instant relief. If you get a private session he follows with a light massage and cupping for a well-rounded, therapeutic experience. A definite must if you really want to get your qi flowing from head to toe. I highly recommend Wylie to anyone seeking a true professional and master of acupuncture. He is a healer like no other!
