Acupuncture In Milford, MA

Alison A. Nelson, Owner and Licensed Acupuncturist

Welcome to Point of Healing Acupuncture in Milford, Massachusetts.
Your health is precious. A lot of us take our health for granted until one day it happened. It could be an accident, something we just woke up with, aging, or finally realized I want to feel healthy again.

For me, it was an accident 19 years ago that changed my life. I was jogging and was hit by a pickup truck. For over six months I tried numerous therapies but nothing seemed to help. My rehabilitation doctor wanted to start doing spinal epidural injections to numb my neck and back pain but I said no because of the potential risks and did not want to numb my pain, I wanted to eliminate it altogether. The only other suggestion my doctor had was to try acupuncture. Yes, just like you, I was skeptical but after a few visits I started to feel relief.

I am not living with chronic severe pain because of acupuncture. Acupuncture changed my life. I was fascinated to learn how it worked so I could help others in pain like me. I want to hear your story and help you feel the amazing benefits of this safe, effective, drug-free therapy.

Point of Healing Acupuncture has been open since 2007 offering detailed holistic treatments in one of our quiet private rooms perfect for relaxation and healing.

Germ Theory: 101

Why do some people always catch a cold, and others don’t?
Viruses, germs, and bacteria are everywhere. They are in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink, but not all of them are bad or harmful.
