Chinese medicine has been supporting women for three thousand years. Rooted in this ancient medicine, our practice specializes in acupuncture and herbal therapy. Principles of holistic western medicine are folded into our approach to deliver a custom treatment plan for you - a plan that treats the root and not just symptoms.

“To ‘arrive’ is to reach your destination, and also to begin again. We all get off track in how we take care of ourselves in our busy lives. I founded Arrive as a place for patients to catch their breath, get centered and reconnect with themselves. What I love about my practice is listening to my patients and creating a custom treatment plan that reflects their personal health intentions. After 15 years in practice, I continue to be in awe of how relevant Chinese medicine is in women’s healthcare today. Not only is it effective, but the wisdom underlying the medicine is wisdom we can keep coming back to at each stage of life.”

Pregnant After Unsuccessful IVF
“I started seeing Anne almost twelve years ago when I experienced some infertility issues. She was amazing from the start. She is a wonderful listener, very knowledgeable, thoughtful, sensitive, thorough and very kind. She never appears rushed and I always completely relax when I walk into her practice. Anne saw me through a couple rounds of IVF, two miscarriages, and the birth of a perfect, beautiful healthy baby boy. I truly believe that acupuncture and the treatment that Anne offered had a lot to do with that pregnancy. I was 43 when I delivered our son. I am forever grateful. Anne is an exceptional practitioner and I highly recommend her.” —M.H.
