Essential Circles of Life

Essential Circles of Life is a Healing Arts Clinic focused on serving the Greater Hickory area through Acupuncture, Massage, and Chinese Herbal Therapy.  We strive for “Corrective Care” rather than a “Relief” based approach with our patients to help them achieve both short-term and long-term goals with their personal health.  Our objective is to empower our patients to take greater control of their health and lifestyle on their journey throughout life.  We offer a unique advantage to our patients in that our practitioners communicate and work in tandem with each other in order to streamline your track to better health without the aggravation of multiple practitioners in different offices.  We look forward to working with you.

COVID-19 Response

Due to the increasing number of local cases in addition to the fact that we cannot guarantee your safety due to air circulation and ventilation, lack of masks or proper protective equipment, Essential Circles of Life will be closed for routine acupuncture treatments beginning Wednesday, April 1st 2020.

For those patient’s in need of EMERGENCY acupuncture treatments for pain, we will consolidate treatment into 1 day weekly.  Appointments will be staggered, and patients will be required to remain in their vehicles in the parking lot until they are asked to come inside.  Please understand that you will be responsible for taking the risk of any potential infection of COVID-19 in the office given the circumstances outlined above. It is also your responsibility and social obligation to avoid attending acupuncture treatment if you are showing any signs of illness or have potentially been around those who may be infected.

Patients in need of supplements or herbs can make arrangements for pickup which will happen 1 day weekly and will be determined in the future as the schedule is adjusted.
