Thinking about trying acupuncture?

It's important that you feel confident about trying acupuncture for the first time. To help you make a smart decision, I'd like to send you a book written by one of the pioneers of acupuncture as FREE gift. It's called Is Acupuncture for You?
($14.95 value) 


Why people seek acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used to help patients regain movement after strokes, and to treat anxiety, depression, headaches, low back pain, tennis elbows, and substance abuse to name a few. A study in Neuroscience Letters suggests it may even be useful for treating Parkinson’s Disease.

However, in my practice, I specialize in three often overlapping conditions.

Lyme Disease

I know Lyme. I got it about 15 years ago. In my practice I use herbal strategies, essential oils, cupping, sauna, detoxification, genomic nutrition, as well as acupuncture to help my patients.

Anxiety & Depression

Acupuncture is an effective non-drug therapy for anxiety and depression. Often we are able to identify an underlying physical cause for the extreme emotional states.

Chronic Pain

Acupuncture has been used in China for more than 2000 years for relief from pain of all kinds. More than a billion people can't be all wrong, right?

Ready to get started?

Get started on your journey back to health by claiming your copy of Is Acupuncture for You? by acupuncture pioneer and teacher, J.R. Worsley. There is absolutely no cost to you. 


This is what I recommend you do.

Starting acupuncture is a big decision. The concept of using needle to remove energy blocks is hard to grasp. That's why I recommend new patients learn as much as they can about acupuncture.

Step 1: Order Your Free Book

If you haven't already, order your free copy of Is Acupuncture for You? It's a great first introduction to acupuncture.

Step 2: Prepare Your Questions

Write down all of your questions about acupuncture and then choose the three most important ones you want answered.

Step 3: Schedule Phone Consultation

During this free 15 minute phone consultation I'll answer your most important questions and if we have time, we can work on the rest of your list.


My name is Mackay Rippey. I've been practicing acupuncture for 30 years and I've seen it change people's lives. It's amazing if you think about it - tiny needles can encourage the body to heal.

This first thing everybody want's to know is, "Does it hurt?" The answer is yes. It feels like a pinch. But that's putting the cart before the horse. 

Take a moment and order the book I'm offering you. There really is no catch. I just find that informed patients are better patients. The internet is great, but you can go down all kinds of rabbit holes. I want to help you avoid wasting time.

Amazon Book Review

This is a very nice and simply written introduction about what to expect from traditional 5 element acupuncture and what to expect from a good practitioner...

...I highly recommend this book as an introduction, it has wet my appetite to know more about the subject. This form of acupuncture is definitely way more holistic and effective than any other I have tried, and it was extremely interesting to understand more about the philosophy behind it.
