Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine needles at specific points on a patient's body to help facilitate the process of healing or provide symptomatic relief. Additional techniques include Microcurrent Point Stimulation applied to acupuncture points, and Electroacupuncture.
Acupuncture is known to treat a wide variety of illnesses and ailments such as but not limited to:
Chronic and acute pain (injury, degenerative diseases etc)
Acupuncture can be used to help improve the appearance of scars as well as improve mobility and lack of sensation around the scar. Acupuncture makes scars softer and more flexible by breaking up fibrous tissue and promoting energy flow. If you are in the process of healing from recent surgery, scar therapy using acupuncture can be utilized as a prophylactic against major scar tissue formation.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese treatment method used to drain excess fluids and toxins, stimulate the nervous system, boost the immune system, clear respiratory congestion, bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and loosen adhesions, connective tissue and stubborn "knots".

I have Bells Palsy and could not function without acupuncture from Ashley Dunn. He gives the BEST needles and always hits the right area. My face was so bad I had to wear a patch over my eye and my mouth had a very serious droop. Ashley got my mouth back in line and has my eye where I could freely wear my contact lenses. I had horrible pain behind my ear and he relieved that pain after the second treatment. I have been receiving the treatment sense August 09.Ashley is the best I have been to, I started out in Vero Beach but I’m so glad I found him. My life would still be tense and unhappy but he has reestablished my sanity. The treatment cam me and help the numb feeling in my face and keep my eye from dripping and the dull pain. The acupuncture also helps my shoulder when I’m in pain. I recommend acupuncture to anyone with any nerve problem or pain that cannot be helped with conventional methods, especially Ashley Dunn!
Ashley Dunn possesses a gift--rare among healers--of true intuitive knowledge of energy, emotions, nature's functional capacity for health and the uniqueness of how the life force unfolds. His intuitions create a brilliant dance between Chinese and Japanese acupuncture with an effectiveness rarely achieved. He is one of the best acupuncture physicians in this country.
As entrepreneurs and owners of a successful cell phone dealership, my husband and I deal with lots of stress and anxiety on a daily basis. After searching for a way to maintain our busy life style while also maintaining our health and well being we found the answers at the office of Ashley Dunn.

The monthly acupuncture treatments and individualized herb regimes have brought more spirit and health that could ever be imagined. Our work is better, our blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and digestion have greatly improved and there has been an amazing amount of increased energy. We would both highly recommend that anyone reading this testimonial would greatly benefit from a visit with Ashley Dunn. It will truly change your life!

Keeping Me Healthy
I have been under the care of Ashley Dunn for several years. My first visit was for sinus problems. I have suffered with sinus infections for some time but after being treated by Ashley I no longer suffer from sinus related problems. I have regular appointments with Ashley in order to treat various complaints, i.e., muscle tissue tightness, headaches, etc. I see Ashley for my general wellness and have not had to seek medical attention from a physician in the past nine years.
Thank you Ashley for helping keep me healthy!
Ashley is awesome!! He's very caring and compassionate about making sure you are taken care of. I never believed in acupuncture until my MD recommended me to see Ashley. On my first visit I instantly felt a difference and that was 6 years ago. So I make sure to always keep regular appointments. Thank you Ashley for always being there and helping me.
