Acupuncture has had a presence in the Southern Tier for 25 years, which is truly a remarkable run for a place as rural as this. For 20 years, Graham Marks operated the clinic out of his office on 29 West University, for people with long memories, this was once Dr Eisenhart's medical office, located right in the Village. In 2013, Sarah Nelson and Kevin Ferst moved from Seattle to take over and expand the clinic. Though we have moved around a bit, this clinic will be here so long as there are patients interested in coming to see how bonafide Traditional Chinese Medicine can transform their lives for the better. Now, we are newly located back in the Village of Alfred in Hair Care. We have a private room in the back of this space. All services are available, including acupuncture, tuina Chinese medical massage, customized Chinese herbal formulas, cupping, and food therapy.
Sarah and Kevin are Board Certified with the National Commission on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, the NCCAOM. Acupuncture is licensed by the State of New York. In coming to us, you are coming to professionals with the credentials and knowledge to approach your health concerns with care, commitment, and the experience to help you. If you are new to our clinic, you will find that 1) the needles don't hurt and 2) we take our time to understand your particular case so we can be of most help.
