Acupuncture Associates of Eastern MA offers healing choices  in  two locations, North Smithfield, RI and New Bedford, MA. We practice natural  methods to relieve pain and fatigue, and to help treat a vast number of chronic illnesses and medical conditions – all without the harmful effects of drugs.

Acupuncture is the key component of our holistic treatment alternatives. Some conditions respond best by incorporating  one or more additional specialties including homeopathic medicine, Reiki, Chinese herbal medicine,  and acupuncture detox.

These therapies, often collectively referred to as ‘ Eastern Medicine,’ are based on a method of healthcare developed in China thousands of years ago.  They have been used successfully through the ages, by people of all ages, for relief from existing conditions as well as for preventing illness and embracing a healthy lifestyle.
