Simple, gentle care for your physical & mental health.

Welcome to Gentle Tides Acupuncture. We are a full service healthcare practice providing medical care through the lens of Japanese acupuncture and traditional East Asian medicine. At Gentle Tides, our medicine is based on the premise that all bodies and minds are capable of being healthy and healing — 

We provide trauma-informed care to support your mental and physical health, treat illness and injury, encourage overall well-being, and help you live your life to the fullest.

Why Acupuncture?

As a comprehensive medical system, acupuncture is used to support the body and mind in healing from nearly any condition. Using a holistic, whole-person approach, your symptoms will not be treated in isolation. Instead, we deliver highly individualized care that addresses the root cause of your ailments and helps your body and mind learn how to heal and function at their very best.

By recognizing that mental and physical health are not distinct, acupuncture healthcare offers a uniquely powerful approach to health and healing, with the ability to deliver highly effective support for both physical & mental health conditions, encourage profound healing and produce long-lasting results.
