Welcome to Burlington Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine

After a 2 month hiatus during the Covid-19 crisis, we have re-opened following strict sanitization protocols as mandated by the CDC and State of Vermont. We take these protocols seriously in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff.  If you have any questions about our protocols/ procedures please email us or give us a call.

                                                                                                          

Burlington Acupuncture is a full service acupuncture and integrative medicine clinic. We provide treatment for;

 

Injury and pain of all types, including chronic, long term pain. You don’t need to suffer, we can help!

Women’s Health, including fertility treatments, support for a healthy pregnancy, menstrual discomfort, menopausal complaints, and support for those going through breast cancer and chemotherapy treatment. We also offer cosmetic acupuncture for the face and neck, for those who want to refresh their look but also improve overall health, and radiate from the inside out.

Difficult to treat issues: Many health issues that don’t make sense from our western medical perspective, make perfect sense from the Traditional Chinese Medical perspective. We are often able to treat problems that fall through the cracks in the western medical system.

Stress Relief:  Acupuncture is an optimum choice for those dealing with stress and anxiety. Treatments decrease cortisol in the body (our stress hormone), and increase endorphins (our feel good hormones). Treatments also decrease muscular tension. Relax into a deeply nourishing state in a professional, supportive environment.

Burlington Acupuncture maintains a Chinese Medicinal Herbal Pharmacy to support our clients health and well-being and as an alternative to synthetic drugs. We use Chinese herbal formulas treat the root cause of an imbalance, as well as the symptoms that arise from it..

Experience, nurturing, supportive care with Sharon McIlwaine, M.A., L.Ac., a nationally licensed acupuncturist with over 30 years of experience.
