Licensed Acupuncturists

Welcome To An Integrative Health Care Experience...

Integrative Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine in downtown Montpelier.  Nationally board certified and licensed acupuncturists, Joshua Singer and Kerry Boyle Jenni are pleased to partner with the providers of Central Vermont Medical Center to offer an individualized approach to complementary health care.

Using the principles and over 2,500 year history of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) we treat a spectrum of health issues, including chronic and acute pain, allergies, anxiety, addictions, fatigue, sleep, respiratory and digestive disorders, as well as women's health and fertility issues.

We use ancient and modern techniques of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, tui na massage, auricular therapy and craniosacral therapy, to create a treatment plan that's customized for your optimal health.

" The data in support of acupuncture is as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower than that of many drugs and other accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions."

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Conference on Acupuncture, 1997

How Does It Work?

Acupuncture has been studied for years in the west to try to scientifically figure out how are people healing with these little needles.  Here are the conclusions:

1.  Acupuncture increases the circulation of blood- reducing pain and swelling
2.  It causes the release of certain neurotransmitters- benefitting mental health
3.  Acupuncture stimulates the natural release of opioids- reducing pain
4.  A reaction with the central nervous system occurs- benefitting overall health.

We pride ourselves on making acupuncture easy to understand at Integrative Acupuncture.  We always answer all of your questions to the best of our abilities to allow you to feel secure and informed. To read more about our providers certifications and experience, read our About Us page.
