Acupuncturists have many different methods, but here at Round Rock Health and Wellness, we focus on needling, cupping and herbal supplementation. We are proud to offer our patients a variety of treatments, especially to patients who have a needle phobia but still wish to experience acupuncture therapy. These services provide a natural avenue for the body to heal and restore imbalances. Our Licensed Acupuncturist consults with every patient on their health and service preferences prior to treatment. Our goal is to provide patients with exceptional care and to empower them on their journey to healthy living.
About the Treatments
The following treatments are offered during private sessions at Round Rock Health and Wellness:
The use of fine needles that are placed on trigger points and areas of tension to release stiffness, stimulate nerves, and relieve pain. This treatment is also known to increase circulation.
This method utilizes glass or silicone cups that create a suction when applied to the skin. The suction generates a massage-like sensation, releasing muscle tension. The cups are usually left in place for 3 – 5 minutes.
Your Acupuncturist may recommend some herbal supplements in addition to your acupuncture therapy. Taking herbal supplements is thought to help restore imbalances in the body.
- Aromatherapy $10
The use of essential oil concentrates to enhance the body's ability to rectify its issues.
- Cupping and Gua Sha $10
Both cupping and gua sha can be utilized to relieve stagnation of qi. This is done by suction or scraping of the tissues. Both of these therapies leave marks on the body that typically clear up in 3-7 days depending on the severity of the stagnation.
- East West Massage $18 per 15 minutes
Modalities that may be included are Tuina and Swedish and Shiatsu and medical Qi Gong.
- Private Qi Gong Instruction $20 per 15 minutes
Dance-like sequences of movement. These lovely freeing movements may be done seated or standing. Qi Gong can open the energy pathways to restore balance of body, mind, and spirit.

Descriptions from —Amanda Beisel, acupuncturist and founder of SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic in Vancouver, British Columbia
"Cosmetic acupuncture begins with body needles to balance and relax the body, and then fine dermal needles are inserted into the face.... I follow a specific [acupuncture] protocol ...and then do extra needling in specific fine lines and wrinkles. The facial needles improve blood and energy circulation, nourish your skin and increase natural collagen production to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin."
ON COSMETIC VS. TRADITIONAL ACUPUNCTURE:
"Cosmetic acupuncture is specifically focused on improving the skin health and giving skin an overall glow, but it does incorporate traditional acupuncture that works to de-stress and calm the body. The appearance of the skin is connected to the state of your health, so it is important to balance the mind, body and spirit."
ON ITS ANTI-AGING EFFECTS:
"The main benefits one will notice [from cosmetic acupuncture] is a brighter and healthier looking complexion. It softens the appearance and slows the formation of fine lines. I encourage woman in their late twenties and early thirties to incorporate this into their skin care routine to prevent the signs of aging. There is nothing that completely eliminates the signs of aging—it just slows them down. I actually encourage people to embrace aging and do it gracefully because aging and living each day is a beautiful thing."
It generally takes five sessions to see results. Clients often notice an overall brightness to the skin after the first treatment, however. I encourage clients to complete a series of five to ten sessions, coming in weekly or bi-weekly, and then coming in every four to six weeks for maintenance."
ON THE BEST AGE TO START:
"It is always good to start early before the signs of aging have really taken hold. You want to be stimulating collagen while it is naturally starting to decline, therefore fighting the aging process. Starting in your late twenties and early thirties is ideal, however it is never too late to start because it boosts the look and health of your skin and that is beneficial to everyone."
ON ANYONE WHO SHOULD AVOID THE PROCEDURE:
"If you have a serious health condition cosmetic acupuncture is not a good option. Also, if you are taking blood thinning medications."
Also used are: Acupuncture , Acupuncture with Electro-stimulation, Ear or Auricular Acupuncture,TDP Mineral Heat Lamp (a therapeutic substitute for Moxibustion), Prescription of Chinese Herbs and Chinese Herb Consultations, Chinese Nutrition (In TCM, Nutrition is considered the first line of defense in health matters.)
Acupuncture Treatments Reviews
"My experience was really wonderful. I had a really bad spell of vertigo that sent me to the ER. The doctors there ended up telling me they didn't know what to do, and essentially gave me no advice besides, here is some Valium hope you get better. After days of no improvement, I went to RRH&W. I came in for acupuncture and met Molly. She was amazing. She was sweet and acted as if she truly cared, something I never get from traditional medicine. She discussed diet changes with me, and after three treatments my symptoms improved dramatically. I cannot tell you how happy I am with her, and the center overall. It was nice to be treated with care, and like I am a human being not just some test subject. It was my first time trying acupuncture, and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I think the combination of the treatment, some Chinese herbs, and improved diet recommendations from Molly have set me back on the road to healing. I have not tried the other departments at the clinic but I am sure they are top notch. I HIGHLY recommend Molly and I am sure you will find her pleasant and willing to listen to your complaints and really come up with a personalized plan to tackle your ailment. Thanks again!!"- T.H. / Google / Jan 26, 2016
"Even though it's a bit of a drive for me I am so happy I started seeing Brennan for acupuncture. I suffer from migraines, clusters, tension, allergy and sinus headaches. I had one for 2 weeks that wouldn't go away. After just 1 treatment I noticed it seemed to be lessening in severity. After 2 more sessions I am finally starting to feel human again. I'm really excited Brennan offers community acupuncture because I can afford it and will be able to keep coming. Thank you!!?"- J.S. / Facebook / Oct 29, 2016
What to Expect
Patients can expect to experience different sensations depending on the service they choose. Typically, needling is the the primary service provided to patients and cupping, microcurrent stimulation and herbal therapy are used in addition to this service. Patients can choose one of these additional services or can opt out of utilizing them all together. Cupping or other modality may replace needling as their primary treatment.
During needling, patients can expect to feel tiny pinching upon insertion but most don’t feel any discomfort. Cupping can leave patients with circular red marks or bruises but they generally disappear after a few days. After cupping, patients can expect the area treated to feel a little sore but only for a day or 2.
