Our Holistic Approach to Healthcare

We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to medicine here. This clinic is about treating you as a whole person, one who differs physically, mentally, and spiritually from any other that comes through our doors. We take the time to learn about your current well-being, medical history, and goals so we can create a treatment plan that makes sense for you. That custom plan could involve one of our services or a combination of the services below.

HSA or FSA for Acupuncture

Generally, acupuncture is considered a “qualified expense” for HSA and FSA accounts. If you have an FSA or HSA, you can use it for your acupuncture sessions with us.


The flow of qi is improved or reestablished by the placement of acupuncture needles along the body’s meridians. When the energy flow is balanced, the patient will feel relief and experience healing in the targeted areas. Learn more about our Acupuncture treatments.

Acupuncture and Moxibustion

Moxibustion acupuncture treatments use the burning of mugwort to promote the flow of qi. The burning mugwort is held over acupuncture points or placed on those points (stick-on moxa). Patients will feel a warming sensation radiate through their body. Learn more about our Acupuncture and Moxibustion treatments.

Acupuncture and E-Stim Therapy

Electroacupuncture treatments can amplify the healing benefits experienced during acupuncture with the addition of an electrical current that is passed through the needles. Some patients prefer this added stimulation. Learn more about our Electroacupuncture treatments.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Our clinic’s pharmacy and herb store is stocked with over 250 herbs, herbal formulas, and supplements to give our patients a natural, no-dependence alternative for improving their health and treating their illnesses.  Learn more about our Herbal Medicine Consults.

Acupuncture and Cupping

We pair these therapies together because cupping maximizes the effects of an acupuncture treatment. Cupping treatments create a positive pressure on the skin, generating deep muscle relaxation which promotes healing. Discover the many health benefits of Cupping.

What We Treat

Chinese medicine is used to improve the flow of qi, of life energy throughout the whole body. Restoring balance and removing blockages is beneficial for general wellbeing, but also for treating the root causes of a number of conditions. This ancient practice is used to treat physical issues such as reproductive health and pain, mental issues such as stress and anxiety, and other issues ranging from insomnia to menopause symptoms.








An Environment of Healing and Peace

" I've been seeing both Dr M and Nilesh for several weeks for an extremely painful hip and knee. They are both caring, gentle, and highly effective practitioners. They listen carefully, respond thoughtfully, and follow up with questions. I cannot say enough positive things about them! Oh! And I love the setting—quiet, peaceful, and rejuvenating. I like to go early in the morning to start my day. Namaste."

What To Expect

You can expect to find a partner in your health journey.

At Transformational Acupuncture, we strive to provide a welcoming environment to each and every patient. We understand traditional healthcare can make some wary of seeking help, even if it’s for the betterment of their health. That’s why we take a holistic approach when treating each person. You will be listened to, treated with respect, and be seen as a true partner in your own health journey.

At the beginning of your treatment you’ll be asked some basic questions so we can establish a good baseline. From there we’ll discuss your specific needs and issues. After hearing from you, we’ll create a holistic plan that is designed to help you live the balanced, healthy life you deserve.
