Modern Acupuncture in Scottsdale

Modern Acupuncture opened their first location in Scottsdale in February of this year, making acupuncture accessible, affordable and convenient.

If you’re not familiar with what exactly acupuncture is and what it does, you may be surprised to learn the vast benefits of these natural treatments. Acupuncture uses needles placed on specific points of the body to address different concerns or ailments. Many people think this would be a painful, but the needles are thinner than a strand of hair, making it virtually painless.

Some of the issues traditional acupuncture can address include:

  • Pain
  • Injuries
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Digestion
  • Insomnia
  • Allergies
  • Migraines

There is also cosmetic acupuncture for natural beauty. Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include:

  • Reduction of Fine Lines
  • Softening of Deeper Wrinkles
  • Lifting and Toning Muscles
  • Evening of Skin Tone & Texture
  • Reduction of Under-Eye Bags
  • Complexion Improvement
  • Better Skin Hydration
  • Increase Circulation & Vitality


At Modern Acupuncture, the needles are administered by 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. These people really know their stuff!

Every appointment is customized to your particular needs that day and the session will take around 30 minutes. The sessions take place in what is called the “Zen Den” which offers a truly relaxing experience with calming sounds, cool earthtones and reclining chairs. This 30 minutes will likely be the best power nap you will ever experience. 


The founder of Fabulous Arizona, Cynthia Sassi, experienced 6 weeks of both traditional and cosmetic acupuncture at Modern Acupuncture. As a very busy business owner, her treatments focused mostly on stress. She saw an immediate decrease in stress as well as better sleep and energy on the days she received treatment. The cosmetic treatments reduced acne and improved her skin overall. After just several treatments her skin looked more vibrant and there was a noticeable decrease in fine lines and wrinkles.
