AcuTake is your resource for leading a healthier, simpler, more meaningful life through acupuncture.


Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free therapy for all sorts of ailments. It reduces pain. It helps you sleep and poop better. It keeps you strong through flu and allergy seasons. It boosts your energy and decreases stress. Acupuncture also improves your health in ways you might not expect. It makes you more open-minded, patient, confident, self-aware, grateful, and compassionate. Who can’t use more of that?


The driving idea behind acupuncture is that you’re already in possession of everything you need to be well. Rather than focusing on what’s missing, and adding something to fill the gap, acupuncture takes what’s already there and rearranges it to restore balance. This is an invaluable philosophy. Imagine a world where people spent more time reflecting on what they have rather than what they want.


Acupuncture engages the body’s own healing mechanisms to address underlying problems—opposed to temporarily suppressing symptoms, the way drugs do. This requires that you look inward and get in touch with how you feel, even when you might not like what you see. It demands a courageous commitment to getting quiet and understanding yourself on multiple levels, from what ails you to what drives you.

AcuTake uses these acupuncture-inspired ideas to spark conversations about optimal living. Sometimes those sparks come in the form of acupuncture-specific material. Sometimes they manifest more broadly, in content related to diet, relationships, business, or self-improvement. Driven by our three core principles—health, simplicity, and meaning—we use acupuncture as a lens for discussing wellness in all areas of life.

AcuTake does not distribute medical advice nor consider acupuncture a panacea. If you’re having chest pain, go to the ER.
