What People Are Saying

James Whittle is an amazing Acupuncturist! I have been going to acupuncturists for years but James is definitely one of the best. He is attentive, kind and a master at his craft. I highly recommend the Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic.


I have encountered various health problems and devoted years attempting to address them using different medications, supplements, and therapies, without any success. I decided to explore acupuncture as an option. After just a few sessions with acupuncturist James Whittle, I quickly discovered the healing that I’d been searching for, for many years. Both James and Tera have a sincere and compassionate nature, along with a remarkable gift for healing.


My visits for acupuncture have proven to be the best thing I have done for overall well being. I am now a firm believer in this healing practice. James and Tera are skilled, caring practitioners. Over the two years I have been getting treatments, I can count on being seen on time in a quiet, professional environment.

True healers have to have more than just a knowledge of their practice. They must also have compassion, a connection to a deeper source, a knowledge of their own healing process, a willingness to learn and expand, a keen eye on the present moment, and an awareness of the needs of the patient. James Whittle has demonstrated to me time and time again how he is not just a fantastic Acupuncturist, but he is one of those rare finds…He is a true healer.

Christine Kane

I had terrible colitis with bouts of diarrhea every day along with intense pain in my abdomen for many years until I met James Whittle. After receiving his dietary advice and after 4 acupuncture sessions, the pain disappeared and my diarrhea was gone. I also had recurrent bladder infections that also did not come back as a result of James Whittle’s meticulous, compassionate care.

Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the painless insertion of single-use, sterilized, surgical grade needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to alleviate pain and discomfort. James has training in classical Chinese acupuncture, five element acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, auriculotherapy or ear acupuncture and electro-acupuncture.

Excellent research has been done on acupuncture that will convince the most hardened skeptic that it works. In 2012, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) competed a comprehensive systematic review that concluded acupuncture is effective for chronic pain. It is also worth noting that acupuncture and Chinese medicine are being utilized by millions of Americans and over a billion people all over the world.
