Acu-Na Stands Out Among Acupuncture Clinics in Hendersonville

Our founder Mary Houge, ND, L.Ac., LMBT received the “Women of Year in Integrative and Complementary Medicine” in 2014.  Go Mary! Dr. Mary moved to Hendersonville, NC in 2008.  She originally have a private practice in downtown Hendersonville.  In 2012, she moved to the Fletcher area to better serve the surrounding areas such as South Asheville, Hendersonville, Fletcher, Fairview, Arden, Mills River and many more.  With our new location off exit 44 which is the Mountain Home / Fletcher exit you simply go two tenths of a mile on Asheville Highway and we are on the right just before you get to the first light which is Butler Bridge.  This new location is conveniently located and has over 2,000 sq feet designed to be your personal sanctuary away from the stress of daily living!

Dr. Mary’s vision was to enlarge her practice to incorporate other amazing practitioners to form a team approach.  She wanted to be centrally located with easy access for our clients.

How Acupuncture For Back Pain Heals the Body

Many people who have chronic low back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain have found acupuncture to be helpful for reducing discomfort and improving mobility. Acupuncture for back pain involves gently inserting very thin needles into strategic points on the back and sometimes the arms and legs. Most people feel no or minimal discomfort as the fine needles are gently placed. Your practitioner will always check in with you and adjust anything as needed to ensure your comfort. During the treatment, you relax comfortably on a treatment table while the needles are placed, and then you rest peacefully for 15-30 minutes to allow the treatment effects to take place. Oftentimes, your practitioner will incorporate additional therapeutic techniques such as cupping therapy, hot stone massage, and moxibustion heat therapy as needed to complement the acupuncture treatment for back pain or neck pain. During and after treatments, people report that their tension is reduced and that they feel very calm and relaxed. Some degree of pain reduction is often achieved with the first visit, and subsequent visits show further improvement until the desired results are achieved. Typically, optimal results are reached within 4-5 weekly visits and then maintained with a monthly “tune-up”.

How Acupuncture For Neck Pain Works

Acupuncture is well-known for its ability to reduce back and neck pain, but its effectiveness extends much further. Acupuncture therapy is used successfully for weight loss, anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, arthritis, and more. Acupuncture programs are available to quit smoking, lose weight, and improve athletic performance. Our experienced practitioners can help you achieve any of your health goals using acupuncture and complementary services.
