We take an integrative approach to helping you lead a healthy life full of well-being.

Dr. Bennett has worked side by side with MD internist for many years and will work with your doctors.

Our emphasis on maintaining a healthy body in order to avoid illness is one of the main reasons our acupuncture clinic has gained popularity. For some, Bennett Acupuncture and Functional Medicine will take them back to a once known place that is cozy and familiar, offering a rediscovery of health. For others, the journey may offer a new center and a refreshed vigor, a state of wellness never before experienced.
