Acupuncture in Austin: Acupuncturist Billy Zachary

Welcome to Acupuncture Changes Lives, a clinic where you can relieve stress and get back on the road to a healthy, balanced body and mind using the time-tested techniques of East Asian medicine.

Billy Zachary, L.Ac is here to assist you on your journey to recovery and relaxation. You will see for yourself how well acupuncture really works.

Through my training as a martial artist, then a shiatsu practitioner, and as an acupuncturist, I don't look at just the surface of folks I am talking to. I work to clear my own mind, so that I can take a the whole a person in their totality. My teachers refer to it as a form of listening, a type of indirect 'looking' that forms an awareness of the person being observed. It takes virtually no time to do this and to form a quick impression. I often find myself wondering how I could potentially help a particular person, and what I'd do for treatment if they showed up at my office. This isn't effort for me anymore; it's become a natural part of my daily existence and experience. It is as if this split-second assessment of your ki (energy), or your gait, or the underlying tone of your skin makes a kind of sound. If you are dealing with something in terms of your health, why don't you consider acupuncture? It could make a real difference.

Billy Zachary., L.Ac., has a strong record of successfully treating many issues using acupuncture. If you would like to make an appointment with him or speak with him specifically about your case, please call him at (512)825-3305 or .

Immediate Online Calendar Changes

Due to some difficulties with the online calendar, I am immediately switching services. If you have already made an appointment between now and September, we will (or have already) transferred this to the new calendar. However, several appointments made were recorded on the wrong day by the old service; call or email if you need confirm that you received the correct time...I have yet to confirm whether emails sent to patients reflected the intended time and date to schedule, or reflect instead the error.

My apologies for the inconvenience of adjusting to the new calendar; you may have to make new user names and passwords. The advantages of the new system are that it should be more friendly to mobile phones, and also can be accessed directly on the clinic's Facebook page. Overall, I think it is easier to use, however, if you have any trouble with the new calendar, call me or email me, and we can schedule the old fashion ways.

Email is now old fashioned. Hm.

Do you know someone who could benefit from acupuncture?


Our business depends on and grows by referrals. If you know someone who could benefit from our services, please let them know about us. We are often asked if acupuncture can treat a specific condition; for your reference, here is a short list of the types of disorders that acupuncture can treat: gynecological disorders; allergies; emotional disorders; urogenital disorders; gastrointestinal, respiratory, neurological and musculo-skeletal disorders. We also treat preventively, reducing the effects of stress and the severity of chronic conditions.



Reduced Initial Evaluation and Treatment at the Austin Longevity Center
…The chiropractors that I work with at Austin Longevity Center are offering half off an initial chiropractic evaluation and treatment to all of my patients, until July 7th. I can't recommend Drs. Todd and Laura enough. They are conscientious, and care immensely about their patients, and in addition to the physical/structural work, they offer nutritional and supplemental counseling as well. You can read more about them at www.austinlongevity.com. Call their office at 448-0900.




Insurance stuff, who I'm in network with now
…

Your insurance may cover acupuncture! I'm now in network with:

  • Blue Cross/ Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • PHCS / Multiplan
  • United Health Care
  • First Health / Coventry / Pacifica

If your insurer is on the list, it doesn't guarantee that they will cover acupuncture, but we'll be happy to check for you. If your insurer is not one of these, they may still cover acupuncture, and again, we'll be happy to check for you. Most people who find out they have acupuncture benefits are able to get more treatments in.


Do you know about the "last minute" list?...

Once or twice a week, we send out an email letting folks know of any last minute openings we have in our schedule. These appointments are filled on a first-call, first-served basis, and are sliding scale/pay-as-you-can.
