springbest_0010Welcome to Mystic River Acupuncture

Founded in 1989 by Kathleen T. Poole, Mystic River Acupuncture is conveniently located in City of Groton near I-95, Route 1, and Thames Street. Our clinic offers Chinese Herbs, Acupuncture, Therapeutic Massage, and N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique).

Mystic River Acupuncture is the first Chinese Medical clinic to serve Southeastern Connecticut.

For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has been used to alleviate symptoms for a wide range of disorders. This ancient medicine will help you manage physical symptoms, keep your mental equilibrium, and maintain a healthy immune system.

Chinese Medicine is a safe and effective way to treat physical, mental, and emotional aspects of your being. It is good prevention and helps you heal faster when you are ill or injured.

At Mystic River Acupuncture we only use sterile one-use disposable needles. Acupuncture needles are hair thin. Although you may feel some sensation of Qi upon insertion, acupuncture generally is not painful. You can also benefit from non-needling methods such as cupping, moxibustion, magnet therapy, guasha or shonishin.

Mystic River Acupuncture provides care in private sessions by appointment as well as  in our Community Acupuncture Clinic. We have a full service Asian Apothecary on the premises. We offer several types of therapeutic massage.

We are always happy to discuss your health with you. You can stop by any time to visit our office and meet the staff. We welcome you to our clinic and look forward to working with you.

It’s crazy out there! Please drive safely.
