Why Come to River Valley Acupuncture?


Nancy has over 31 years of experience as an acupuncturist, treating a wide range of acute and chronic health problems.


A large majority of patients here experience significant to complete relief from their original health concern. In addition, because Chinese medicine treats the body as a whole system, many secondary symptoms improve at the same time.

Comprehensive treatment

Nancy incorporates both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and five-phase Japanese treatment styles, as well as such adjunct therapies as pediatric tuina (Chinese pediatric medical massage), acupressure, Chinese herbal medicine, and others (please see Services page for a complete list).

Free consultation

An initial, complimentary, 15-minute phone or in-office consultation is available upon request, to help prospective patients decide if this office and Chinese medical treatment in general is right for them.

Patient education

Nancy provides clear explanations of Chinese medical principles as well as suggestions for self-care that can enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.

Friendly and welcoming environment

Patients are always treated with warmth and respect. We value making your treatment experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible!

Collaborative approach

Nancy enjoys working with your other health care practitioners in order to provide an integrated approach to care.

Convenient location

The office is conveniently located in downtown Amherst, near several bus stops and a public parking lot. See our contact page for a map and directions.
