My name is John Moore, and I am a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist based in Spokane, Washington.   
I operate a clinical practice in the Shadle Park area of Spokane where all ages are welcome, with a focus on internal medicine and pain reduction.  

I strive to create an experience where you feel comfortable and relaxed.  If you are new to acupuncture and have some reservations about needles, I will walk you through the process so that you feel at ease.  Most people find this form of medicine to be relaxing and restorative.
