What can I expect?

Our first goal at Nashville Healing Arts Acupuncture is recovering your sense of optimism that you will you get better. When you arrive for your New Patient visit we’ll take a complete a history of your issue, answer your questions and describe in clear detail how acupuncture may help your condition. We will provide you with a therapeutic plan of action and identify the steps to evaluate your progress.

“Mark Shprintz literally helped save my life with his acupuncture. By the time I was 26 years old I had quit my job and my passion (playing music) because of the chronic pain, numbness, and muscle atrophy in my hands and arms. I had two separate orthopedic surgeons tell me that I would probably be disabled for the rest of my life. I spent four years in chronic pain and depression before I found Mark. He was able to relieve pain that a host of doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists had previously been unable to touch. I am a completely different person now and playing music again, largely because of Mark’s healing abilities. Not only is Mark an excellent acupuncturist, he is a kind and gentle soul flowing with healing energy.” -Dorothy D.
