Nancy Grossman, Licensed Acupuncturist
River Valley Acupuncture
441 West Street, 1st Floor
Amherst, MA 01002
River Valley Acupuncture is located at 441 West Street (Route 116) in south Amherst, in a large brick building close to the road that is part of the Amherst Office Park. The office is 8 miles from downtown Northampton and just north of a Pioneer Valley Transportation Authority (PVTA) bus stop.
By bus: Take the #38 bus from Amherst College, Amherst center, Hampshire College, or South Hadley, and ask to be let off at the Pomeroy Lane bus stop in Amherst. My office is a two-minute walk north on the west (Northampton) side of the street. My office is on the south (Granby) side of the brick building, and the entrance is just off a small concrete porch.
From Amherst center: Head south on South Pleasant Street/Route 116 towards Hampshire College for 2.25 miles (South Pleasant Street will become West Street). After passing a small wetland area on your right, turn right past the brick building at the 4th sign for Amherst Office Park, at 441 West Street. (If you get to the Speedway gas station, you have gone just a little too far.) My office is on the south (Granby) side of the brick building, and the entrance is just off a small concrete porch.
From Northampton: Take Route 9 into Amherst Center. Turn right onto Route 116, and follow the directions above.
To contact the office
The quickest way to contact this office is by telephone at (413) 585-1511. For general questions or to schedule an intake appointment or a free, 15-minute phone or in-office consultation, kindly call the office. I handle all scheduling and the majority of communications over the phone (which I check regularly during business hours, Monday through Friday); however, you may also submit questions or comments below, and I will respond ASAP, usually within 1-2 weekdays. Please know that the contact form below and associated email are not encrypted, so, for protection of your personal health information, I advise calling me if you wish to discuss your particular health concerns in any detail. I also talk much faster than I type…..
If you reach out by email, PLEASE make sure to say something related to acupuncture or Chinese medicine, such as “questions about acupuncture,” in the subject line of your email, if you are interested in acupuncture treatment. I get a tremendous number of non-treatment-related inquiries, and I don’t want to overlook your email by mistake. It is helpful to also include a phone number, especially if your query might entail a lengthy response (see: “talk faster than type” above).
Thank you for your interest!
