Products & Services



Acupuncture has successfully treated a variety of conditions, illnesses and injuries for thousands of years.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture is based on the idea that energy circulates throughout the body along interconnected pathways known as meridians.
When the circulation of this energy becomes blocked or unbalanced, the result is pain, illness and discomfort.
By stimulating the meridians through specific points on the skin, ancient healers discovered they could redirect the flow of energy in the body. They could restore balance the root of good health.

Health and Lifestyle Coaching

Health and Lifestyle Coaching

I teach my patients how to live healthier, happier, more balanced lives.

In conjunction with acupuncture treatments, I encourage my patients to practice healthy habits targeted to their unique physical and psychological ailments and challenges.

This can include:

Dietary consultations
Relaxation and mindfulness techniques
Fitness exercises
Stretching techniques

Complementary Therapies

Complementary Therapies

Bodywork techniques: Improve energy circulation and rebalance musculoskeletal systems (can include targeted tui na, gua sha and/or Zero Balancing) .
Health and lifestyle coaching
Essential oils: These therapeutic oils accelerate healing and rebalance the body.
Other specialty treatments:
Auricular (ear) acupuncture
Magnetic therapy
Herbal liniment treatments
Press Tacks (micro needles)
Kinesiology or Kinesio (KT) taping

Acupuncture is the hub of my practice, but my complementary therapies and distinctive knowledge base of both Eastern and Western medicine are what really set me apart.

Customer Testimonials

I've been going to Gracey Holistic Health for c. 2 months now, and have experienced tremendous improvement in the issues for which I've been going. Robert often uses a non-insertive technique, and when he uses insertive needles, they are the finer, Japanese type, and not very many. I am continually amazed and pleased at how effective this minimalist technique has been. Furthermore, Robert is very knowledgeable, not only about acupuncture, but also diet and exercise, and he's a very gentle soul. I highly recommend him.

I saw Robert because I'd been experiencing recurrent bouts of pain as a result of Lyme disease. I was experiencing a lot of pain, particularly in my hip. Robert treated me with acupuncture and homeopathic remedies. After a couple of months, I was free of pain and felt like my old self again. It's been nearly one year now and I haven't needed any additional sessions. Robert is a sensitive healer, and I'd recommend him to anyone.

I've had the privilege of knowing Robert both on a personal and a professional level for several years now. He's a kind, amiable person, easy to get along with and he definitely is a highly trained acupuncturist. I've worked with Robert for various issues from elbow pain to back discomfort. Lately I've been seeing him for knee pain. The results of his treatments are always great and I'm comfortable putting myself in his very capable hands.

This is the best acupuncturist
Who has ever treated me... I am in less pain before i leave his office!

He's trAined in tyPes of treatments, including both needles and needleless.

The deal: come and you'll come back.
He treats you like a frIend in need, not a customer work a number.
