Acupuncture is a specialty in traditional Chinese medicine that helps stimulate healing, reduce pain and improve function. At the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt, our licensed acupuncturist will customize a treatment plan for you. Using hair-thin, sterile needles and associated procedures — as well as recommending lifestyle changes — he can help restore and redirect the flow of energy through your body.
While typically not covered by insurance, acupuncture costs may be reimbursed through your health savings account or flexible spending account.
