River Point Family Acupuncture Celebrates Completion of Doctorate Program

Local licensed acupuncturist, Barb Wasson, has earned her Doctorate of Acupuncture from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Wasson, owner of River Point Family Acupuncture, plans to use her degree to expand the reach of acupuncture in the local community. In Wisconsin, acupuncturists are required to hold a masters degree to practice acupuncture. As the demand for holistic medicine grows in the US, many acupuncturists seek to grow their skills to provide more comprehensive approaches to integrated medicine. With a doctorate, practitioners can provide care to more complex medical issues. "As a Doctor of acupuncture, I look forward to helping you realize the healing potential of your body." says Dr. Wasson.

Acupuncture can be an effective way to manage health and well-being without the use of pharmaceuticals. Studies have shown that acupuncture can treat a variety of acute and chronic conditions. Acupuncturists help promote the human bodys natural healing abilities by stimulating specific points on the body. The stimulation of these specific points communicates to the body what biological processes must happen for healing to occur. Patients can maintain a high level of health and wellness without the side effects of prescription drugs.

Barb Wasson, DAc, opened River Point Family Acupuncture in 2015 in downtown Hudson. As the daughter of Lisa Wasson, an elementary school teacher in Hudson of 22 years, serving the community has always been a focus for Dr. Wasson and continues throughout her career. Through exposure to integrative medicine Dr. Wasson gained a deep appreciation for the bodys innate ability to heal. River Point Family Acupuncture provides acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, heat therapy and other Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments to patients of all ages.
