About Our Clinic


Pine Mountain Chinese Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic was founded in 2001 and is located at the Medical Science Center at 711 West 38th Street, Suite G-3 in Austin, Texas. In our clinic, we apply various treatment modalities of Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, acupuncture with electric stimulation, cupping, acupressure, and moxibustion.

Our friendly clinic is headed by Dr. Ziyang Zhou, L.Ac., MD (China), an acupuncturist and herbalist with extensive training and nearly three decades of experience working with Traditional Chinese Medicine in China and the United States. Patients feel comfortable in his care because of his knowledge, qualifications, and a strong ability to communicate clearly and receptively. He will assess your individual situation and conditions carefully to provide a comprehensive diagnosis that encourages optimal healing and recovery for your unique health needs and requirements.

Because of Dr. Zhou’s training experience with his grandfather, we use moxibustion more often and more effectively than many other acupuncturists. The clinic has one designated room with separate ventilation to alleviate the concern of smoke and the smell of moxibustion.

Our clinic has a full pharmacy of Chinese herbal medicine. We have more than 300 commonly used herbs in both raw form and powder/granule form, which are utilized to make customized herb formulas. Our pharmacy also carries a wide variety of Chinese patent herbs, in forms of pill, tablet, tincture, capsule, plaster, salve, etc.

Insurance & Pricing

Our clinic participates in most major insurance programs and networks. However, insurance plans vary in coverage so acupuncture is not a guaranteed benefit, even when Dr. Ziyang Zhou is an in-network provider. Please call your insurance company to verify or our office can verify it for you. We are proud to now be covered by Veterans Affairs Patient Centered Community Care (VAPC3). See our "Before Your Visit" page in Patient Information for more information. Currently Medicare covers acupuncture for lower-back pain only when it is performed by medical doctors or in their offices. Licensed acupuncturists are not covered because we’re not in-network with Medicare. Without insurance coverage, we offer a discounted rate of $130 for the first treatment and $105 for each additional treatment. Or we offer a prepaid package of 5 treatments for $95 each for a total of $475 ($75 in savings).
