Wednesday-Saturday by Appointment


At Beacon Acupuncture in Grafton, Massachusetts, we offer a holistic approach to healing that extends beyond acupuncture to include a variety of bodywork therapies.

Some of the therapies below may be recommended as a part of treatment plans to those seeking acupuncture treatment. During some acupuncture treatments specific modalities may be incorporated into the treatment of the day to facilitate the session, while other times it may be recommended patients book an additional, separate session.

BioSynchronistics® draws on traditional physical therapy techniques, and is enhanced with a holistic approach based on both the force of gravity and the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. BioSynchronistics® combines manual techniques that balance, sequentially, all of a body’s systems.

Lymph Drainage Therapy® (LDT): Developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO. LDT addresses body fluid systems: lymph, interstitial fluid and synovial fluid. LDT technique allows practitioners to palpate the specific rhythm, direction, depth, and quality of the lymph flow.

CranioSacral Therapy® (CST): Pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Zero Balancing® (ZB): Developed by Fritz Smith, MD, Osteopath and 5 Element Acupuncturist, in the early 1970s. Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body, specifically how the energy flows through the structures of the body. Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment.

Visceral Manipulation® (VM): Developed by French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral. An integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of a patient requires assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system.

MyoFascial Release Massage Therapy (MFR): Techniques for application of releasing fascia inhibiting posture and health of movement using direct methods and movement neurological re-education.
