Effective Acupuncture Treatment for a Wide Variety of Health Concerns

We use a comprehensive holistic approach and fully customize the treatment of your complex health conditions such as reproductive health and fertility, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain or illness, hormone imbalances, and neurological disorders, to name a few.

I came to Michael with weird belly distress of many weeks that Western medicine could not diagnose. After just a few acupuncture sessions and the appropriate herbs suggested by Michael, I am 95% better, and continuing to heal!  The soothing ambience is an important part of the healing process, in addition to the skilled, professional treatments.” ~ Susan – 63 – Academic Administrator

Our Treatment Approach

We are committed to providing comprehensive, holistic care using a 100% natural, holistic approach to your treatment. Our process begins with a free initial consultation where we review your case.

When you choose to become a patient, we then complete a detailed review of your history and formulate a customized treatment plan. We LISTEN and we look at you as a whole person.  You are more than just your symptoms, a diagnosis, or numbers on a lab test. 

The foundation of our treatments starts with the proven, time-tested power of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), by nature, excels at addressing the root cause. Acupuncture treatments are an essential part of TCM.

However, we don’t stop there.  Your comprehensive treatment plan also includes a powerful blend of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, functional nutritional therapy, and mind-body medicine to help you achieve your health goals. In our experience, optimizing a combination of therapies that address the root cause of your issue means patients typically see more rapid progress for their condition.

Your initial consultation is free. Come meet us in person and learn more.

Or, just call 603-352-3625 and we'll be happy to answer your questions.

Consultations are available for both Keene, NH and Nashua, NH locations.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR COVID: Initial consults are conducted in person or via Zoom (your choice). Just let us know your preference when booking.

"I found Cup of Life while searching for acupuncture to help with fertility. Prior to my initial free consultation, Cup of Life provided me with the most thorough health history questionnaire I had ever encountered. Upon arrival at Cup of Life, I felt immediately welcomed by Michael and Satya's caring presence. Within minutes of my first visit, I was given a personalized health plan which included nutritional recommendations, stress management techniques, supplements, and positive visualizations. Although I entered Cup of Life for fertility assistance, I was pleasantly surprised to receive holistic healing from the ground up, far beyond acupuncture! Michael and Satya definitely fulfill their mission to provide affordable care that yields desired results. After 3 months of weekly visits, I received a positive pregnancy test. I continued acupuncture throughout my first trimester, and greatly appreciated the support! My husband and I then moved away from New England, however, we continue to enjoy a healthy pregnancy and are awaiting the arrival of our first baby in December of 2021. We are forever grateful for Michael and Satya. It was a privilege to receive their care. We highly recommend Cup of Life for all manner of healing needs."

“My insurance company was not going to pay for my IVF cycle because I could not seem to get my FSH level below 15 and my day 18 estradiol above 100. After a few acupuncture treatments, I have been given the go-ahead because my FSH measured 8, my LH was 24, and my estradiol measured 336 today. Thank you so much.” ~ S.C., 41, Psychologist

"Wow! I'm blown away by how much acupuncture is helping.  My uterine lining measured 11 mm today. I have never had my lining measure above 8 mm, ever.”

~ E.N., 42, Nurse, patient preparing for an IVF cycle

"I cannot remember when I have bled so little.  After the first acupuncture treatment, my bleeding got lighter.  After my second acupuncture treatment, I bled even less.  I expect after this treatment, it may stop bleeding altogether."
Mary --Patient with a long-standing history of continuous menstrual bleeding

“If you're looking for relief from pain issues, whether emotional, physical, or mental, this is the place to go! Michael and Trish are an amazing team! When you are with either Michael for acupuncture or Trish for Reiki you feel cared for and totally refreshed and recharged. Thank you both for doing what you do. You are both blessed with such amazing talents/gifts and we are lucky to have you in this community.” ~ Amy, Small Business Owner

"It was hard to feel hopeful a year ago when I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic and degenerative autoimmune disease. My rheumatology team at Cheshire Medical is amazing, but my body has not embraced any of the immune suppressants we've tried so far. This past winter, I decided to access prolonged treatment from Michael. After two months of weekly treatments, my legs feel so normal sometimes I forget how much function I had lost. My arms are functioning better than they have since 2006. I have no more fibromyalgia and very little pain. Smaller changes also encourage me.  My balance has returned. I no longer groan when doing routine tasks. I am not depressed anticipating more decline. I have hope now that function can be maintained. I owe such a debt of gratitude to Michael, his kindness, his skills. What a treasure his knowledge and abilities are for our community."

"I’m happy to report that I’m noticing great strides with my health:  increased interest cut way back on tv, less joint pain, gradually increased energy, lost 10 lbs, finding my sense of humor again, easier releasing anxiety and guilt. It’s all great stuff and I definitely attribute the acupuncture and new supplement regimen."

"I can't believe how I'm walking no pain. I can feel my legs from my waist all the way down to my toes. I'm walking straighter more balance. I don't know what you're doing but just keep doing it and maybe we can start coming twice a week. I don't know what's happening but this is great. Well, I just wanna just let you know thank you very much I appreciate it so much and I'll see you next week God willing. Thanks."

Here's How We Help Thousands Every Year With PROVEN, Personalized Holistic Medical Care

(And YOU get to choose which therapies you would like to incorporate.)

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body's innate healing process. Once stimulated, the healing process begins repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. It is an excellent way to tune in the neuroendocrine system’s function of balancing hormone levels and pain.

Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal therapy simultaneously cures AND strengthens the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.

Nutritional Therapy

“You are what you eat” is the saying.  When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress Reduction

General life today causes a stress reaction that will cause your endocrine system to go out of balance and cause illness.  When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.

Why Is Acupuncture So Popular?

It's Incredibly Safe

Acupuncture is proven to be one of the safest therapies on Earth, used by millions of people the world over on a daily basis. Sterile, single-use, disposable needles. No bleeding or pain. And, virtually no side-effects. 

Proven Results

Acupuncture is perhaps the oldest form of therapy on planet Earth. It has stood the test of time and continues to demonstrate effectiveness today. Study after study has shown it to be effective for a wide range of health conditions. Again, because it amplifies your body's natural healing mechanisms, it can help in virtually any situation.

It's POWERFUL

Acupuncture harnesses and amplifies the most powerful healing tool ever discovered – YOU. Its power is awakening and guiding your body’s healing resources.

Zen-Like Relaxation

Acupuncture is one of the most relaxing therapies you’ll ever experience. You’ll look forward to its rejuvenating effects.

How Acupuncture Works

Calms And Balances Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis

Acupuncture is proven to be one of the safest therapies on Earth, used by millions of people the world over on a daily basis. Sterile, single-use, disposable needles. No bleeding or pain. And, virtually no side-effects

Opens And Regulates Microcirculation

When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, those tissues naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.

 

Promotes Tissue Healing

When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function

When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to undergo positive changes. This is different from drugs and surgery which represent drastic, sudden change your body may not be able to sustain. The changes induced by acupuncture are literally like new pathways your body won’t soon forget.

Common Questions

Does the acupuncture hurt?

The sterile, stainless steel, single-use needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are razor sharp and solid as opposed to hollow like a hypodermic needle your would find at your doctor’s office.

How long will it take to see results?

People often feel a shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to regulate the neuroendocrine axis of the body – which is how the brain and central nervous system talk to the endocrine system. And, most patients see significant results within 6 – 12 weeks such as return of regular menstrual and ovulatory cycles, increased libido, and reduction of stress and other potential symptoms of YOUR condition.

Where do you place the needles?

The needles are placed into strategic points on your body, called “acupoints” or “trigger points” to stimulate circulation, calm the nervous system, and have effects on various organs and tissues. Most of the points are on the forearms, lower legs, back or abdomen.

Is there any risk of infection?

We use sterile, single-use needles and we observe “Clean Needle Technique” so there is no risk of infection.

Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

Will I have to do some kind of horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diet?

NO WAY. We are here to set you up for success. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet and work on those. No impossible to follow meal plans or detoxes here.

Will I learn self care techniques like meditation and special exercises that will help empower me to heal faster?

Certainly.  While we want to guide you every step of the way, we also want to empower you for this journey and all those following.  Our program is so effective because of its ability to connect the Body, Mind, and Spirit. We feel it is a very important part of every person’s healing for any condition.
