About Us


Ben Townsend, L.Ac., Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM), M.S. studied acupuncture at the prestigious Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, North Carolina and also studied nutrition at North Carolina State University. He is an accredited master of acupuncture and oriental medicine, licensed acupuncturist and diplomate of acupuncture (NCCAOM). Ben went into the field of acupuncture because he believes in healthcare that allows him to treat people with the least invasive, safest measures before resorting to more aggressive treatments. He is passionate about finding the safest, most efficient methods to help his patients achieve optimal health.

Ben’s Mission is to promote longevity and well-being by providing the least invasive treatments possible using leading practices of holistic medicine.

For fun, Ben enjoys gardening and experimenting with growing medicinal and ornamental plants. A perfect day for Ben would be spent working in the garden or painting with his family.
