A Place for Healing and Wellness
Welcome to Acupuncture RI
Dr. Ryan is a licensed Acupuncturist at Acupuncture RI, located on Eddy Street in Providence, Rhode Island. She emphasizes a holistic approach to healing - she and the patient work together to promote health by reviewing nutritional, fitness and lifestyle goals. She feels that complete health requires the integration of all parts of our being, and she helps the patient to find a way to do this in our modern and complex lives. Along with traditional Chinese medical methods, she believes in skillfully integrating and respecting western nutrition and western medical modalities to create optimal health.
Acupuncture uses small, thin needles to enhance the healing process. These needles are placed at acupuncture points throughout your body. It is often a painless process and most people fall asleep during the treatments and find it to be the most relaxing experience ever!
Every new patient goes through an initial in-depth consultation session. Dr. Ryan and the patient work together and discuss areas such as your nutritional habits, lifestyle, and treatment goals. This information will be used to develop an effective program that gets your body back into balance, free of pain and stress.
