I've had Tara treat me several times for various reasons - sick with the flu, extreme muscle pain/ soreness, tweaked neck, sciatica pain, etc. She has used both acupuncture and cupping. My body responds extremely well to cupping and in times where I have had severe back or neck pain cupping along with an electric stem via acupuncture had me feeling like an improved person after coming off the table. Tara is very knowledgeable and passionate and will even educate you along the way as her goal is for you to achieve optimal health by gaining a proper balance in life. She has two great locations and will even do house calls. I highly recommend her!

Allison Stein is incredibly talented. I originally hired her for doula services, but ended up receiving acupuncture from her as well. Although I had a great pregnancy, I had passed my “guess date”, which concerned my doctor, who in turn, recommended that I induce labor. Induction was not in my birth plan, so I called Allison, who suggested that I try acupuncture. I did and the same day she worked on me, I went into labor! Not only was Allison a great acupuncturist, but I had no idea how valuable her doula services would be until I actually went into labor. She came over to my house in the middle of the night, traveled to the hospital and stayed with me until I delivered my baby. My labor was long and difficult – an intense few days that threw me curves I wasn’t expecting. Through it all, Allison never wavered. She completely understood and respected my birth plan and if it weren’t for her support, I probably would have made other choices – ones that didn’t fit into my original plan. Her experience in a hospital setting and her ability to communicate well with the staff was a not only a bonus, but truly invaluable. She was a great mediator between the doctors and myself, alleviating any additional stress and allowing me to concentrate on giving birth. I highly recommend Allison Stein. She is an amazing doula, acupuncturist and one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

DR. John Barrett has improved my quality of life greatly! I have been suffering with chronic migraines for years and I have seen a number of specialists. I have been seeing Dr. Barrett for about three months now and the migraines not only have decreased significantly in severity but have decreased in frequency. I am so thankful for the opportunity to live my life without the fear of a spontaneous migraine. The office is always clean and Dr. Barrett's office staff is so kind and helpful. I have a great experience every time I come in for an appointment. I recommend Dr. Barrett highly to anyone who would like to try an alternative to pain medications and other methods.

She lectures in a doctoral program on the use of Chinese medicine in fertility, as well as teaches classes and leads support groups. Cancer is not commonly treated by acupuncturists.

He has sought out the best teachers in integrative oncology and is able to share that knowledge with you.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

Is it safe to use acupuncture?

The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

How often do you need to get acupuncture?

How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
