Great Wave Acupuncture & Wellness

Great Wave Acupuncture & Wellness — located in beautiful Westford, Massachusetts

A compassionate, fully integrated holistic practice.

New and growing… Great Wave Acupuncture & Wellness aims to become a fully integrative, holistic practice offering acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, therapeutic massage, and more. We will also be offering classes by certified teachers in stress management and meditation. We listen and we’re here for you.

Great Wave’s goal is to offer our patients the most effective and safe treatments available in a comfortable, professional setting. Our integrative treatment approach means that each provider on our team works together, for you, to achieve the best possible outcomes. Great Wave will bring traditional East Asian medicine and western medical healthcare models together to maximize treatment outcomes for our patients.

As an integrative practice, we also offer nutrition counseling services. Balanced nutrition provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition counseling can help you create a custom health eating plan and can also serve as a method of preventative care against many chronic health issues.

How do we treat?

Acupuncture involves inserting very thin, painless needles into the body at different locations and depths to treat symptoms and facilitate the body’s own healing processes. Acupuncturists also often employ adjunctive treatments such as acupressure, cupping, electro-acupuncture, gua sha, and more. Because we’re an integrative practice, your providers at Great Wave will work collaboratively with you and for you.

New patients will be asked to fill out a detailed intake form on their entire health. Holistic medicine takes into account the entirety of your health. This information will guide the initial intake conversation with your provider. Working with your guidance and input, we will determine the best course of treatment for you, formulate a treatment plan, and explain that plan.
