Acupuncture

Robert Call


Robert believes in integrating acupuncture with a modern scientific perspective, working in close collaboration with his patients and their other healthcare providers to produce highly successful treatment results. He received his Master of Science in Acupuncture from Bastyr University in 1997. From there, he continued to deepen his knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), earning a Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine in 1998. 

Demonstrating his commitment to quality care, Robert pursued and received national Board Certification from the NCCAOM. He has practiced in the Puget Sound area for over 10 years through his own practice, Acumen Acupuncture, and now through Rody Massage & Health.

 

Like chiropractic, acupuncture focuses on unblocking and harnessing the healing power of our body’s own energy. In traditional Chinese medicine, this energy is called qi (pronounced chee). From a Western scientific perspective, this energy has to do with the electrical signals firing through our nervous system.

Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system, promoting biochemical changes in the body and brain that trigger the body’s natural healing ability. We’re excited to offer acupuncture in Puyallup at our Rody Massage & Health clinic because it gives our patients another valuable tool to manage pain and improve wellness.
