Modern Acupuncture™ Opens First Location In Scottsdale

Modern Acupuncture™ now delivering the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture to the community in a retreat-like setting

February 09, 2017 // // SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Modern Acupuncture™, the first health and wellness concept to make the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture available to people in an accessible and affordable delivery, is now open at the McDowell Mountain Village shopping center in North Scottsdale.

Modern Acupuncture combines a healing form that has been validated by thousands of years of practice with a modern, clean and spa-like environment to provide guests with a peaceful sanctuary that they can make part of their regular routine. The first location is located at 15035 North Thompson Peak Pkwy, Suite E105, in Scottsdale.

“I’ve always been an advocate for acupuncture after seeing the healing benefits it has provided my patients, as well as the impact it has had in my own life,” said Stephen Gubernick, D.C., co-founder and franchisee of the first Modern Acupuncture location. “Now, I am excited to bring acupuncture to the community and help others make it part of their everyday life.

Upon entering Modern Acupuncture, guests are greeted by simplistic yet contemporary decor with calming colors and natural wood elements, sending them into an instant state of tranquility. After a customized consultation with a Modern Acupuncture Zenologist, guests are taken back to the Zen Den, a relaxing retreat outfitted with soundproof insulation, lounge-style recliners, calming sounds and cool earthtones, ensuring a multi-sensory experience while essential or cosmetic acupuncture services are delivered. Sessions typically last around 30 minutes and all guests leave with a customized treatment plan and a complimentary handcrafted organic tea blend.

Modern Acupuncture delivers an enhanced acupuncture experience that does not require the removal of any clothing or needling at the site of the pain, yet accesses full-body health. Acupuncture needles, which are thinner than a strand of hair and virtually painless, are administered by acupuncturists who have been certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®)? after completing a three-year masters degree from an accredited school. They are further trained in the specific method used at Modern Acupuncture by Robert Doane, EAMP, L.AC., DIPL., C.H., co-founder at Modern Acupuncture and world-renowned acupuncturist and educator.

Modern Acupuncture offers affordable memberships encouraging guests to add acupuncture to their regular health and wellness routines. The “Pathway Plan” is $69 per month and includes two essential acupuncture sessions, the ability to make appointments and additional visits are only $20. The “Mission Plan” is $19 per month and includes $30 sessions and the ability to make appointments. Single walk-in sessions are $59. Memberships and packages for cosmetic acupuncture are also available.

In celebration of its opening, Modern Acupuncture is offering guests a special introductory price of $29 for a single session through February 28.

Modern Acupuncture is located at 15035 North Thompson Peak Pkwy, Suite E105, in Scottsdale. Open 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily. Phone: 480-767-1245. For more information, please visit
