Feel Better—Naturally—with Acupuncture

Exceptional care, and exceptional results, with Dr. Meredith Murphy

Do you feel tired all the time? Do you get a lot of colds? Do you find yourself in pain and taking medication? Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you feel anxious or depressed? Are you having trouble getting pregnant? Are you experiencing headaches frequently? Does your stomach cause you to miss out on life’s simple pleasures?


Many people know that acupuncture is good for treating back pain, but acupuncture can treat a whole myriad of health concerns. Dating back thousands of years, this ancient practice has endured due to its efficacy and lack of unpleasant side effects. Almost every health concern can effectively be treated with acupuncture.


Here are the top five conditions we treat in our practice:

Infertility/IVF support

For women (and men) who are having trouble with conception, acupuncture can be the answer. Research has shown significant increases in pregnancy rates when women were receiving acupuncture treatments. We tailor our treatments around your cycle and any treatments you may be receiving with a fertility specialist.

Anxiety and Depression

Emotional concerns respond well to acupuncture. Traditional Chinese medicine treats the body and mind, and can benefit the spirit. Treatments can be done for people who want to avoid medication, reduce medication, or in addition to medication. Reduce overthinking and worry, feel more energized and less fatigued, sleep better, and handle life’s stressors better. Many patients see change with one visit.

Migraines and Headaches

I originally received acupuncture when I was 17 and experienced migraines 3-4 times a week, and headaches daily. Within two weeks, my headaches and migraines were almost completely eradicated. This was the first step in my journey to where I am today. With acupuncture, we help people with all sorts of headaches—sinus headaches, tension headaches, menstrual migraines, migraines, cluster headaches, and more—to discover a life pain free.

Digestive Disorders (IBS, Colitis, Crohn’s, GERD, etc.)

Digestive complaints are one of the top reasons patients come to our office. Everything from irritable bowel syndrome to heartburn to autoimmune disorders do very well with acupuncture. Most patients will have significant reduction in their symptoms, as well as a better tolerance for foods and stress that were previous triggers. Bloating is reduced, bowels become more regulated, and life can resume normalcy.

Pain (acute or chronic)

All types of pain do well with acupuncture. Whether you suffer from back pain, neck pain, elbow pain, TMJ pain, knee pain, or any other type of pain, acupuncture can help reduce and eliminate pain as well as a safe alternative to medications which have unwanted side effects. Depending on the type of pain (and if it is chronic or acute) we will determine your treatment protocol, which will be discussed on your initial visit.
