For centuries, acupuncture has been a popular practice for relieving an array of ailments — like migraines, tension headaches, chronic pain, and emotional stress — by stimulating your body’s natural energy flow with super thin needles that are inserted into various areas of the body. (Don’t worry, most people report that the process doesn’t hurt!)

No matter what you’re living with — an injury, digestive issues, or a mental health condition —  Philly has no shortage of experienced providers who are ready to support your wellness. Here’s our guide to clinics in the Philly area that’ll help you find the relief you seek. (And if you’d also like to book a massage, you can find our guide to them here.)
