Welcome!

Stevens Point Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine serves central Wisconsin, including Stevens Point, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, Amherst, and Waupaca.  We are a full-service, licensed Chinese medicine facility, offering acupuncture, tuina bodywork, cupping, moxibustion, herbal formulas, medical qigong classes and treatments, and Five-Element-based sound, color, and light therapies.  While we are trained and experienced in treating most conditions, and welcome all clients, Ilana has additional training and specialization in fertility support and women’s health, and Cheryl in support for those concerned about the challenge of a cancer diagnosis – preventative, assisting with the side effects of standard cancer treatments, and the rebuilding of strength and vitality in cancer survivors.

We believe that health is a manifestation of balance, both within the body itself and between the body and the external environment. When the body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, energy flows smoothly throughout to nourish all organs and tissues. By adjusting and stimulating the flow of energy, we stimulate the body’s natural healing ability to maintain health and protect against disease.
