Welcome to Blake Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine
Located in Medford Square, I am committed to providing you with compassionate care through your wellness journey.

Acupuncture can help many different conditions by stimulating the body’s own innate healing systems with the added benefit of helping to maintain health and well-being for the future.

I have a special interest in treating conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD, painful periods, PMS and insomnia, but also work with many people with a wide range of other conditions such as back pain, acid reflux, hot flashes, night sweats, TMJ, trigeminal neuralgia, plantar fascitis and Bell’s Palsy.

Please explore the site and if you have any questions please contact me via email or by phone.

I look forward to meeting you!
