Modern Acupuncture opens first Washington location in Bellevue

Nation’s fastest growing acupuncture franchise offers natural health in Bellevue.

Modern Acupuncture, the first franchise to make the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture available to people in an accessible and affordable delivery, is now open in Bellevue.

Modern Acupuncture is the fastest growing health and wellness franchise in the nation, opening locations all across the country. The Bellevue clinic is the first location to open in the state of Washington. A second clinic is slated to open in Renton later this year.

Located at 60 148th Avenue SE at the Bellevue Kelsey Creek Center, Modern Acupuncture Bellevue is surrounded by many retailers such as LA Fitness, Starbucks, Greek Express, Wingstop, Wells Fargo Bank, and more. The 1,200-square-foot clinic holds nine zero-gravity acupuncture chairs inside the Zen Den, a relaxing retreat where traditional and cosmetic acupuncture is performed.

“Modern Acupuncture has brought an amazing concept to life in an affordable and approachable manner for people who lead busy lives, but want to maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Kevin Kelly, Modern Acupuncture franchisee of the Bellevue clinic in a press release. “The area of Seattle is very health and wellness-minded, which is why we felt this would be the perfect market for non-traditional health and wellness care.”

Modern Acupuncture offers an enhanced acupuncture experience that utilizes needle therapy on nodes to increase blood flow, but unlike traditional acupuncture, does not require the removal of any clothing to access full-body health. A visit to Modern Acupuncture feels like a relaxing retreat, where guests can unwind and possibly even fall asleep, zoning out to peaceful music all while experiencing the healing and/or cosmetic benefits of acupuncture. Sessions are typically 30 minutes or less, and walk-ins are always welcome.

Upon entering Modern Acupuncture, guests are greeted by simplistic yet contemporary decor with calming colors and natural wood elements, sending them into an instant state of tranquility. After a customized consultation with a Modern Acupuncture Zen Advisor, guests are taken back to the Zen Den, a relaxing retreat outfitted with soundproof insulation, lounge-style recliners, calming sounds and cool earthtones, ensuring a multi-sensory experience while essential or cosmetic acupuncture services are delivered. Guests leave with a customized treatment plan and a complimentary handcrafted organic tea blend.

Acupuncture is administered by licensed acupuncturists who have been certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) after completing a three-year masters degree from an accredited school. They are further trained in the specific method used at Modern Acupuncture by Robert Doane, EAMP, L.AC., DIPL., C.H., co-founder at Modern Acupuncture and world-renowned acupuncturist and educator.

Modern Acupuncture offers affordable memberships encouraging guests to add acupuncture to their regular health and wellness routines. The “Pathway Plan” for traditional acupuncture is $69 per month and includes two acupuncture sessions, preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $20. The “Pathway Plan” for cosmetic acupuncture is $89 per month and includes two cosmetic acupuncture sessions (which also includes traditional acupuncture), preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $30. Single walk-in sessions are $59 for traditional and $79 for cosmetic.

In celebration of its opening, Modern Acupuncture Bellevue is offering guests a complimentary first visit within the first 30 days of opening.

Modern Acupuncture Bellevue is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday- Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information or to book an appointment, please visithttps://www.modernacupuncture.com/wa001 or call (425) 502-7172.
