The experience of getting an acupuncture treatment can vary widely, depending on where you go. Not all acupuncturists are created equal—and nor are their work spaces.

Acupuncture is offered everywhere from luxury spas and physical-therapy offices to minimalist community clinics and 1970s Airstreams. Some acupuncturists outfit their spaces with Buddha statues and artwork of Chinese characters while others hang anatomy posters and foster a Western-medical vibe. Regardless of your preferences, there’s an acupuncture space out there for you.
