Acupuncture therapy involves inserting hair-thin needles into acupuncture points to release blockages of chi in the body to promote optimal health
Cupping therapy is akin to reverse deep tissue massage. It releases fascial adhesions in the musculature and thereby moves chi and blood in order to reduce pain.
The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Gua sha therapy aids in reducing pain, fevers, and removing pathogenic factors from the body. It also stimulates the lymphatic system.

Why Georgia Medical Acupuncture?
Our experienced and board-certified acupuncturists both have extensive training in the contemporary medical field. Sheridan Spencer has been an RN for twenty years and continues in a part-time hospital practice. Heidi Nicholson worked over thirty years as an Emergency Department physician and only recently retired to further pursue her deep interest in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine. They are uniquely qualified to understand your condition from both views of how the body works.
What can an acupuncture treatment help with
Acupuncture has been used to influence human health and disease for over three thousand years. While it is best known for pain relief in western culture, it can help with many bodily functions unrelated to pain including:
- Sleep problems (too much or too little)
- Digestive concerns (Diarrhea, constipation, nausea)
- Mind/mood dysfunction (depression, concentration difficulties)
- Women’s health (menstrual dysfunctions, fertility, libido)
- Energy deficit/fatigue
- Sports injuries (both acute and chronic)
- Chemotherapy/cancer complications (nausea, neuropathy)
We help you get beyond symptom relief. Start living again!
How Does Acupuncture Work?
The Oriental Medicine theory behind the insertion of small needles at specific body point hinges on the idea that the energy of life flowing through the body but move freely to remain in optimal health and that if it is not flowing easily, symptoms will result. The needles help to unblock this energy flow and restore the healthy balance that is your body’s natural state. Modern investigations show that this is achieved through the release of multiple neurotransmitters in the nervous system.
Let us help you get back to your life again. Let’s work together to help put your suffering where it belongs- in the past.
Our Patients Talk About Us
I have suffered from foot pain for the last 10 years and decided to try acupuncture treatment. Sheridan Spencer treated my foot pain and I can honestly say I found relief and would recommend her treatment to others which suffer similarly.
Our Patients Love Us!
As a nurse of 31 years suffering from migraines, I was willing to try something new. Sheridan Spencer and staff at Georgia Ketamine were professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to my individual care. For the first time, I have found migraine relief and recommend Georgia Medical Acupuncture for anyone seeking a new kind of treatment. Huge thanks to Sheridan and the staff for their help.
