Acupuncture in the hand
Foot Acupuncture


Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of medicine in the world. Originating in China some 4,000 years ago, only in the last three decades has acupuncture been widely practiced in the United States.

Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems. In 1997, a consensus statement released by the National Institutes of Health found that acupuncture is useful in the treatment of many clinical conditions and went on to state: “There is sufficient evidence of acupuncture’s value to expand its use into conventional medicine.”

2017 research report of meta-analysis studies found that “acupuncture was more effective than usual care and sham acupuncture for chronic pain, that it was one of the more clinically effective physical therapies for osteoarthritis and that it showed benefits in the treatment of depression.”

The Acupuncture Evidence Project has compiled research showing evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture for 117 different conditions.

East Troy Acupuncture was founded in 2008 to provide empowered, holistic healthcare to southeast Wisconsin.

Community Acupuncture

The community clinic offers affordable, individualized care in a group setting. This is the ideal setting for treating pain and for stress reduction, though most any health concern could potentially be treated in the community clinic. The community clinic is available to patients after an initial evaluation and treatment to create a personalized wellness plan. Although treatments are given in a group setting, great care is given to keep your health information private. Discussion at the start of each treatment is done in private to ensure absolute confidentiality.

Laser Acupuncture

Cold Laser

Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), offers significant benefits for healing by promoting tissue repair and reducing inflammation and pain. It works by emitting low levels of light directly into the body's tissues without heating or damaging them, which stimulates cellular regeneration and increases blood circulation to the treated area. This non-invasive treatment accelerates the healing process for various conditions, including muscle strains, tendonitis, joint pain, and post-surgical recovery.

Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that increases circulation by the applying small plastic cups over stagnant areas of the body. Each cup has a small valve, and a pump is used to precisely control the amount of suction to the patient’s comfort level. Cupping is used widely by professional athletes and Olympians to increase muscle range of motion and durability.
