Acupuncture is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems. Over the past 5,000 years, practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this non-invasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy. An acupuncturist places fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body’s Qi (pronounced “chee”) and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power.
In ancient times, Chinese people found sharpened metal would relieve pain. After years of experience, it was found that certain points can be connected and related to certain diseases. That is how acupuncture point and meridian were discovered. The meridian or energy channel where Qi flows can be detected by a trained acupuncturist.
By inserting hair-thin acupuncture needles to specific spots, the energy flow of the body can be balanced dynamically, thus giving the person the most flexibility to maintain health. Certain hormones like endorphins will be released to give the body a sense of well-being, similar to the feeling during exercise. Serotonin levels can be adjusted as well to relieve pain through the brain stem.
Allergies in Black Mountain, NC, and Western NC can be brutal. Luckily allergy relief is something that we specialize in. Over a course of treatments, Michael uses a specialized technique called N.A.E.T. which can often get rid of the symptoms of Allergies and sensitivities using Acupuncture.
Acupuncture is also amazing for many emotional disorders, and can often reduce symptoms to “sub-clinical”- a fancy way of saying you don’t feel symptoms even if the condition is still there. Our clinic in Black Mountain, NC uses Acupuncture for sexual health issues including pregnancy, ED, and infertility.

“Before coming here I was incredibly skeptical of acupuncture as a practice. I’d never had any desire to try it and honestly, the entire concept made me nervous. That was until my car was rear-ended while stationary by a woman doing at least 60MPH. I had some good work done by a great chiropractor and some amazing massage therapists, but it wasn’t until I started going to see Michael and get acupuncture treatments that I started to really get relief and some measurable healing. Michael is knowledgeable and professional, and I appreciate his technique and ability. I’ve never been more thankful than I have been since I started to feel a noticeable decrease in pain. This recovery has been brutal on my body and Michael has been an incredible resource that is the most instrumental and irreplaceable part of the process. He has earned my loyalty for as long as we are within driving distance of one another.. and even if we aren’t I’d probably still make the effort!” - Wayne Miller
