I am working to contract with insurance providers, but cannot bill insurance until this process is complete.  If your health insurance covers out-of-network acupuncture, I would be happy to provide you with a superbill receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for partial or full reimbursement (depending on the specifics of your health insurance plan).  If you are interested in out-of-network acupuncture reimbursement, please contact your health insurance company prior to treatment to check your eligibility.

Resource Challenged / Financial Hardship

I would like to make acupuncture available to everyone! If you are in need of treatment, but cannot afford our normal rates, please see the Community Acupuncture page.

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

Acupuncture is an IRS qualified health care expense for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).  If you plan to use your HSA to pay for your treatments, let me know at the time of treatment and I will happily give you a superbill receipt.


There is one flight of stairs leading into Colville Acupuncture. If you are unable to easily climb stairs please let me know and I will recommend an appropriate clinic.

Colville Acupuncture has a 24 hour cancellation policy

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, kindly do so at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment out of respect for other patients who could use the time slot. There will be a fee for late cancellations and missed appointments (excepting emergencies). Thank you!







I have received many acupuncture treatments from different acupuncturists over the years, and it is my honor to comment on Anne Cranston. She has a unique ability to convey confidence in her manner and approach to treatment. Anne is thorough and sincere in her assessment as she develops her plan. She has mastered the technique of needle insertion and has excellent knowledge of placement. Anne initially treated me for a severely injured leg after a fall. She has also treated me for Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). Anne is also well versed in herbal remedies. Since I’ve had such wonderful success with acupuncture and massage, herbal treatment is not part of my usual protocol. In my experience acupuncture is a miracle therapy! Anne is a wonderful lady and you will enjoy the experience of meeting her. Her approach to treatment is impeccable. She has my highest recommendation on a personable and professional level, in both her ability to assess the situation and obtain results.
