Acupuncture Treatments in Albuquerque
Acupuncture Specialist Albuquerque
Acupuncture Associates of America
Acupuncture is an ancient Oriental Medicine technique, tracing its origins back several thousand years. Today, it is accepted by science as an effective treatment for many ailments, including pain disorders, mood disorders, autoimmune conditions, stress, insomnia and digestive imbalance.
Acupuncture Associates of America is Albuquerque’s preeminent provider of acupuncture treatments. With three locations, we are able to serve patients throughout Albuquerque and Los Lunas. We accept most insurance and provide injection therapy and supplement consultations as well, which you won’t find at other acupuncture clinics.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a Chinese Medicine treatment involving the insertion of small needles into specific points in the body. These points correspond with traditional qipathways, through which ancient Chinese practitioners believed life energy flows. These pathways coincide in the body with neural paths, which may explain how acupuncture is so effective at managing pain, mood and hormone balance.
Acupuncture treatments are effective for many conditions:
- Nausea, particularly as a side effect of chemotherapy or during pregnancy
- Pain management, particularly for chronic pain disorders like fibromyalgia
- Inflammatory and autoimmune disorders
- Anxiety, depression and other mental illness or mood disorders
Because acupuncture does not use pharmaceutical drugs, there is no risk of chemical dependency, overdose or negative side effects. This makes it especially valuable in treating long-term, chronic conditions or in situations where medication options are limited, such as pregnancy.

Electro-acupuncture, also sometimes called “electrotherapy” or just “EA,” is a treatment incorporating elements of electrical stimulation with traditional acupuncture. In electro-acupuncture, pairs of needles are placed in specific points corresponding with traditional energy meridians in the body. Mild electrical current is then run between these needle pairs.
Facial rejuvenation works through the insertion of acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points on the face. This stimulates the skin and promotes collagen production, improving skin elasticity. For many people, this also prevents the formation of blemishes, skin discoloration and other faults.
Acupuncture is one of many Chinese Medicine techniques practiced by naturopaths and doctors of alternative medicine. We provide a blended approach, identifying the strengths of Traditional Chinese Medicine and combining them with knowledge of Western science.
