Karen E Nunley, Licensed Acupuncturist MSOM, Dipl Ac
At the Healing Acupuncture Center, we treat issues from chronic pain to anxiety to PMS. We see patients walk in like they’re dragging a dead weight, and walk out feeling much lighter. But it’s not just the acupuncture…though that’s an amazing source of healing all by itself. It’s the fact that licensed acupuncturist Karen Nunley believes that acupuncture is part of the treatment of the whole person, one that starts by really listening to what’s going on in her clients’ lives, with empathy instead of judgment. And beyond the treatment she usually scribbles down a “prescription”: a book to read, foods to avoid or thoughts to practice that will deepen the healing power of acupuncture. Your energy fuels your life. Acupuncture can free your energy.

ServicesAcupuncture is the holistic healing art of moving chi, life energy. Ancient Asian healers learned that chi flows along specific paths or meridians—to the heart, the liver, the brain—and that when those meridians are blocked, problems arise. Recently, neuroscientists have realized that those ancient meridians correspond perfectly with nerve bundles and trigger points connected with vital organs….exactly where ancient acupuncturists said they were.
They made sure that their qualifications were obvious. I was confident that I was under the care of a professional. The chemistry between the staff reassured my confidence in this acupuncturist. Everyone was so professional and talked with respect for the acupuncturist and the art of acupuncture itself. The entire appointment was so relaxing, which shocked me! I wasn't pressured into buying anything, we didn't even talk about money! Other acupuncturists should learn from them! They really go above and beyond to make me feel special. I've never been anywhere that seems to care more about their clients than here. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I've ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better.
