"The secret of patient care is caring for the patient."

Dr. Francis Peabody

Our Approach

Health is a result of balance, both within the body and between the body and the external environment.

When the body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, energy flows smoothly and health is restored.

What makes our practice unique is we integrate two powerful healing modalities: Acupuncture, which restore/maintain balance and health.

We are change agents.  We change our patient's health status:  from pain to no pain, from allergies to no allergies, and in some cases, from disease to no disease.  If you want to change your health status, schedule a consultation.

  • For the last 9 months I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Richard Stillo and heartily recommend them to all my friends. When I first saw Richard I was suffering great pain from arthritis in both my knee and back, and a pinched nerve in my lower back. I was unable to perform simple tasks. Almost from the beginning of treatment my pain began to fade and my mobility improved. Thanks to Richard I have been able to meet my goals, I am 77 years old, I enjoy socializing with friends, living independently and performing necessary household chores on my own.

    PG Arthritis, Knee and Back Pain
  • Acupuncture with Dr. Richard Stillo has made such a positive difference in my life. I have suffered with back pain most of my adulthood due to inoperable scoliosis. In August, 2016, the pain was so severe that I was having trouble walking and going to work. After two different opinions from two orthopedic doctors, MRI’s, physical therapy, all kinds of pain medication and a lot of money spent, I thought there was no hope for me and since I was getting older (early 50’s), this was just something that I had to endure for the rest of my life. My sister begged me to go for acupuncture. Since nothing else worked, I decided to give it a try. After three visits with Dr. Stillo, I was back on my feet, back to work and pain free. It was like a miracle happened. Dr. Stillo has just recently treated me for shoulder pain that I was having for months. Again, after a few visits, I am now pain free. I highly recommend acupuncture with Dr. Stillo in their clean, comfortable and friendly office environme For me, it is the best way to get long-lasting results.

    PC Back Pain & Shoulder Pain
  • My name is Jim I am 54 years old, I was in excruciating pain in my legs and had a very difficult time walking and sitting due to bulging and herniated discs in my back. It did not want to go down the path of pain killers, it was suggested I try acupuncture. I was very skeptical though willing to try it anything at that time. The pain in my legs we agonizing and even after the first treatment I finally felt some relief my legs. The pain gradually faded with time and with more treatments I am now pain free. This is a great alternate to drugs. Rich is just an outstanding person, extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend Rich to everyone.!
