Modern Acupuncture™ Opens First South Carolina Clinic

Nation’s fastest growing health and wellness franchise opens first South Carolina location, offering the natural health and cosmetic benefits to Mount Pleasant residents

CHARLESTON, S.C., (JUNE 27, 2018) -  Modern Acupuncture™, the world’s first franchise to make the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture available to people in an accessible and affordable delivery, is now open in Mount Pleasant. This clinic is the first clinic to open in South Carolina and the 22nd to open across the nation. There are at least 10 clinics slated to open in South Carolina.

Modern Acupuncture is located at 608-G Long Point Road at the Belle Hall Shopping Center. Neighboring retailers include Stein Mart, Verde Salad, Another Broken Egg Cafe, Great Clips, Polka Dot Papers, Wonder Works, and more. The 1,200-square-foot clinic will have eight zero-gravity acupuncture chairs located in the Zen Den, a relaxing retreat where traditional and cosmetic acupuncture is performed. Additionally, there will be at five to six employees hired at this clinic.

“In my initial research on this 3,000-year-old medicine, I was amazed by the number of ailments acupuncture can successfully treat, such as hypertension, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, migraines and a host of other conditions,” said L.S. Carper, Modern Acupuncture regional developer for South Carolina, North Carolina, and Colorado. “People tend to not try acupuncture because of the lack of accessibility and high prices. However, Modern Acupuncture clinics are always located in major shopping centers where people tackle their daily tasks like grocery shopping, going out to eat, etc. We have created a convenient approach by making the prices affordable and sessions short, yet effective. We welcome and invite the entire community to experience the benefits of traditional and cosmetic acupuncture.”

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 Zen Advisor, 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. Guests leave with a customized treatment plan and a complimentary handcrafted organic tea blend.

Modern Acupuncture offers an enhanced acupuncture experience that utilizes needle therapy on nodes to increase blood flow, but unlike traditional acupuncture, does not require the removal of any clothing to access full-body health. A visit to Modern Acupuncture feels like a relaxing retreat, where guests can unwind and possibly even fall asleep, zoning out to peaceful music all while experiencing the healing and/or cosmetic benefits of acupuncture. Sessions are typically 30 minutes or less, and walk-ins are always welcome.

Acupuncture is administered by licensed 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” for traditional acupuncture is $69 per month and includes two acupuncture sessions, preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $20. The “Pathway Plan” for cosmetic acupuncture is $89 per month and includes two cosmetic acupuncture sessions (which also includes traditional acupuncture), preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $30. Single walk-in sessions are $59 for traditional and $79 for cosmetic.

In celebration of its opening, Modern Acupuncture Belle Hall is offering guests a complimentary first visit within the first 30 days of opening.
