What My


15 years into service and we’ve worked with some awesome clients who love us and our services. Check what they have to say about us.

Great experience with Dr. Nicky - I was able to get pregnant while working with her!


I have been having an amazing experience with Dr. Nicky and her team, highly recommend them!!


I’ve been seeing Dr. Nicky for a little over 5 years now. To say her compassion and knowledge equate to pure magic is an understatement. Highly recommend her!


I have great news!! I’m PREGNANT! It is still hard for me to believe, and I cannot thank you enough! I strongly believe you had a very significant role in this good news 🙂 and am incredibly thankful I came to see you Dr. Nicky! You are super great and I am so so happy I came to you!! THANK YOU again!


I saw Dr. Nicky for acupuncture fertility treatments when I was trying to get pregnant. I had seen other acupuncturists before and she far surpassed them with her knowledge and plan/strategy for reaching my goal. I truly believe her acupuncture played an integral role with me becoming pregnant and the resulting successful pregnancy. I would recommend Dr. Nicky to anyone! The rooms were always clean and comfortable and Tina the receptionist was such a friendly face each time I went in. So pleased with their services!


I have nerve pain and now go for maintenance once a month. Modern Point Acupuncture therapists are professional, knowledgeable and considerate with my condition that I look forward to visiting Dr. Nicky. I can live my life with a smile! Thank you all!


I love this place. The staff is wonderful, they are very cautious about COVID-19 restrictions while still offering an extraordinary quality of care. I have been visiting for a month to help deal with a chronic back problem that I have had since giving birth to my youngest. Within weeks, I have seen enough improvement that I am already able to better keep up with the kids and neighbors at the bus stop and around the house. I cannot recommend Dr. Nicky highly enough - she's practical, friendly, and efficient. CHECK. THEM. OUT.


I’m so excited I get to do just that to tell you that I am pregnant!!!!  I just had my 8 week ultrasound today and baby looks good and healthy! Thank you so much for everything that you did for me Dr. Nicky! I appreciate it more than you know!


Very relaxed environment focused on the patient’s needs. Just overall well run and good experience.


Dr. Nicky has helped me stay off major medications for my inflammatory disease! She is amazing!


My easy pregnancy was supported by acupuncture. Dr. Nicky provided great care, and treatments were very relaxing. Highly recommend!


Dr. Nicky and team are truly wonderful. She is passionate about her work and will develop a plan with you that will best suit your needs. I worked with her before, during, and after our fertility treatments. I truly believe that acupuncture increased our chances of success as I am currently pregnant!! She was a cheerleader for me along the way and walked me through everything step by step. Acupuncture not only assisted us in getting pregnant but also helped with the stress of fertility treatments and the stress that 2020 brought to everyone. Dr. Nicky and team provide high-quality care and I am very thankful that our paths crossed. I continue to see her for pregnancy maintenance and other things that have come along the way in life. She is one of a kind and is highly recommended!


For 3 months, my life was consumed by acute neck pain caused by an impinged cervical nerve and constant muscle spasms. I lost weeks of sleep and work. I lost being me as I isolated myself in my home due to neck and radiating arm pain. I was desperate for relief as I tried multiple interventions to no avail. 

The day I met Dr. Nicky, I was miserable, exhausted, and at an all-time low. She performed my first ever acupuncture treatment which immediately provided me comfort and the ability to function again. This therapy allowed me to obtain my first full night of sleep in 2.5 months without the use of pain medications. Acupuncture increased the range of motion in my neck. I was able to drive, go to work, wash my hair, and participate in the recreational activities that I could not do while I suffered. Acupuncture will forever be my first line of defense for future acute pain. It was a painless intervention that promoted an optimal result. I am grateful for Dr. Nicky’s compassion, knowledge, and skill. She is truly the reason I am living my best me again. I can not thank Dr. Nicky enough. 


My experience with Modern Point Acupuncture has been outstanding. I was treated by Dr. Nicky. She has a warm and fun personality as well as a vast amount of knowledge. Her passion for what she does is refreshing since I have been to many other acupuncturists where it is lacking. She truly wants to get to the root of the problem and get you pain relief. I came to her with a severe antibiotic-resistant sinus infection accompanied by chronic migraines. After one session the pain went down drastically in my face and the migraines were improved. After about two months of one or two appointments/week the migraines and sinus issues were gone and I was off all medications. I would highly recommend anyone to her (Dr. Nicky), she is amazing at her craft. Finding Modern Point Acupuncture has been such a blessing!


When I found out I was pregnant for a second time, I knew I wanted to attempt a VBAC. At 35 weeks, I found out that my baby girl was breech. Hoping to avoid another c-section due to breech, I committed to trying anything to get this girl to move! When my doctor suggested acupuncture and using moxa, I’ll admit I was more than skeptical. From her personal experience, it had worked the first time – could I be so lucky too?! When I came across Dr. Nicky and her practice, I was excited to try it, though braced myself that it just might not work. I had one appointment and couldn’t believe the response I got – SO MUCH MOVEMENT! I didn’t even attempt moxa or Spinning Babies at home, because I was so sure she had flipped. Upon an ultrasound a few days later, I saw that it did work! I came back for (what would end up being) my last appointment to maintain her position. It was such a relaxing experience and completely changed my mind on these kinds of alternative practices. I did end up getting my VBAC success story and am convinced that it’s because of the care I received with Dr. Nicky.


I love this place! I saw Dr. Nicky and she truly feels for her patients. She is wonderful at what she does and makes it a great comfortable and peaceful place. She has helped me so much! I highly recommend her! 


Love Dr. Nicky. She is awesome!


Dr. Nicky helped me flip my breach baby at 36 weeks pregnant. She was incredibly kind and clearly loves what she does. I am so grateful and would highly recommend!

-Janessa B.

I have been a client of Modern Point Acupuncture for many years. Both acupuncture and massage have been a lifesaver for me. There have been times when I have only needed services every 6 to 8 weeks. At other times I have needed to go more often. I have always found relief from pain. I highly recommend Modern Point Acupuncture!

-Michelle S.

Dr. Nicky helped me with my chronic pain by providing acupuncture, cupping, and asking the right questions to customize my treatments. My results were excellent. I really liked her ability to pinpoint my needs and make suggestions. I found the experience enlightening and healing. I would highly recommend Dr. Nicky for pain control, surgical healing, and migraines. I love Modern Point Acupuncture and found it a great boost to conventional treatment.

-Lynn S.

Did acupuncture with Dr. Nicky at 36 weeks pregnant in an attempt to get my 3rd baby who was breech to flip. Not only was Dr. Nicky able to sneak me in and work with my schedule but she got the baby to go head down and I avoided a c-section! Super easy to work with, highly recommend!

-Kelly R.

Dr. Nicky is wonderful. I have chronic pain due to arthritis and I would be miserable without her expertise. She gives me lots of tips and advice for improving how I manage my pain at home. Her sense of humor makes my day!

-Donna H.

Dr. Nicky, I cannot thank you enough for your continuous knowledge and help in all areas of my health. You are such a huge blessing.


Modern Point Acupuncture is an all-around thumbs-up experience for me. I look forward to appointments with Dr. Nicky.


I've had excellent experiences with Dr. Nicky. She has gone above and beyond to help me become and stay healthy. She is both sweet and generous! I am a repeat customer.


Absolutely love Modern Point Acupuncture! Dr. Nicky is amazing and has been a key asset in my fertility & pregnancy journey, can't say enough good things!!

-Michelle C.

I just wanted to thank Dr. Nicky for helping me...my water broke at home 3 hours later and my baby was born early this morning.
