Welcome to Essential Acupuncture!

Conveniently located in Richmond’s near west end, I offer the Richmond community compassionate and quality care for a variety of health issues. Acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world and I am honored to practice this powerful medicine in service to your healing. Not only does acupuncture work to relieve the symptoms that bring you to me, but it also addresses the underlying causes of your discomfort. This is the wholistic nature of acupuncture and it is capable of bringing about lasting change to your overall health.  I have been practicing acupuncture in Richmond to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance hormones, inrease energy, reduce stress, depression and anxiety, correct digestive issues and improve overall health and wellbeing. Want to know what else acupuncture can treat?  Please take a look here for a more extensive list of conditions or send me an email or give me a call to discuss if acupuncture can address your specific health concern.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
