Acupuncture originated in China about 5,000 years ago. Practitioners treat the person as an integrated whole in body, mind and spirit, and seek to remedy the root cause of illness, not only the symptoms.

Acupuncture is available from licensed independent providers through UHS' specialty clinic, on the lower level of the health center.


The Student Health Benefit Plan covers acupuncture at UHS. Treatment is also available on a fee-for-service basis; if your insurance plan covers acupuncture, you may submit claims to them for reimbursement.

For an appointment, call (413) 577-6511.
