Affordable Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine
in Richmond, VA

Kim Nguyen is a
Premier Level Balance Method Acupuncturist
and Diplomate in Oriental Medicine

I’m on a mission to use acupuncture to help people connect to their whole selves, as well as to the people around us.

When I graduated from my Master’s program in 2007, I hoped one day I could run a clinic that provided affordable healthcare to underserved populations. That time is now! I am pleased to announce that beginning July 5, 2022 I will be moving my practice next to The Shops at Willow Lawn! I’m creating the only Connected Acupuncture Clinic in Richmond, VA and lowering my prices to serve anyone who can benefit from acupuncture. Unlike community acupuncture which has a sliding scale, it will have a flat rate fee of $50 for follow up visits. The efficacy of acupuncture lasts longer with increased frequency and it doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective. More patients can receive the proper dosage by coming in without price as a barrier, and complete a course of treatment to reach their goals without compromising quality of care. 

Having an open space to connect with others in a healing environment is powerful and strengthens Qi. When we were kids, I loved connecting the dots on a page and seeing the whole picture. Just like the points on acupuncture meridians, I see us as parts of a whole, like constellations in the night sky. The universe is within us and we are all one. This is how I received the idea to call it Connected Acupuncture at Effective Wisdom.

As a healthcare practitioner, I practice what I preach and encourage my patients to be inspired to live a full and vibrant life. I believe that we can all be healthy if given the proper tools and techniques. Age, gender and genetic predispositions do not have to be an excuse for why we don’t feel our best. If we continue to ignore the signs that our body is telling us, we risk compromising our health instead of addressing the real and underlying issues. 

If you are struggling with obstacles on your journey of wellness, I’d love to help you find a clearer path without having to rely on lifelong medication. Having a good foundation and support is essential to lasting health. Schedule your first visit today using the button below!
