Local Acupuncture… with Out of this World Results!
Medical Director and Licensed Acupuncturist provides local acupuncture with advanced, innovative therapies designed for out of this word results. One of our advanced therapies, ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM was first developed by NASA 30 years ago. ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM communicates with the mitochondria of the cells to produce more ATP cellular energy and boost cellular functioning. This creates faster, more permanent healing in a shorter amount of time. We use this technology for many conditions, from neuropathy to arthritis, to autoimmune conditions, to infertility, just to name a few.
Our local acupuncture clinic offers far more than just acupuncture, combining an ancient medicine with modern technology.
- ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM
- O3 Regenerative TherapyTM
- Dry Needling
- Electro-stim Acupuncture
- Pharmaceutical Grade Nutraceuticals
- B12 Injections, LipoMino Injections
O3 Regenerative TherapyTM is another advanced therapy. This uses ozone or ‘activated oxygen’ which utilizes an oxygen tank that runs to a generator, transforming O2 (oxygen) molecules to O3 (ozone) molecules instead. The benefit to doing this is that any cell or tissue that comes in contact with O3 (ozone) becomes fully oxygenated. In our clinical setting, we provide options to fully oxygenate the frontal lobe of the brain- helpful for anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, cognitive health, and brain fog. We also offer kits for fertility patients to take home to fully oxygenate the uterine lining to boost fertility success rates. This helps improve implantation rates and improve success rate of pregnancy going to term. Lastly, we offer other options to help with arthritis or autoimmune conditions using ozone.

Becoming Resilient to Stress
I once had to write an essay on the book, “Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers” by Robert Sapolsky and I can summarize it to this day… The sympathetic nervous system elicits the “fight or flight” response. A third response is to freeze in place.
Modern humans often freeze in place, stall. Usually, we do not fight others or run (flight) like zebras run away from lions, but we just sit or stand in place, doing the same exact thing physically we were doing prior to the stress trigger. The cortisol elevates with the stressor, the adrenaline surges… and we sit (or stand) in place instead of using that fuel to launch into a sprint away from a predator (lion, tiger or bear, oh my!)
Zebras have no choice. They run or they die, or they run and die. Either way, they really must run. In turn, their bodies burn off the adrenaline surge and other stress hormones. This is why they do not get ulcers.
However, humans do get ulcers, because their ancient wiring “fight or flight” response designed to keep them alive during times of war with neighboring tribes, or being hunted by predators, simply goes off at very inopportune times… like when we’re stuck in traffic, or getting flack from our boss, or a friend phones with bad news … goes off, constantly, daily, sometimes multiple times per hour. This creates a cascade effect with the nervous system, the neuro-endocrine hormones and creates inflammation, extra body fat, cardiovascular disease, digestive disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, headaches, autoimmune disease, insomnia, and more. Everyone responds to stress differently.
Most people respond very well to acupuncture because it brings the nervous system and endocrine system into balance. Over time, with regular acupuncture treatment, patients become less triggered by stress as the “fight or flight” response becomes much more self-regulated.
What’s Our Medical Director Been Up To?
Have you heard? Our Medical Director, Laura Parks, M.Ac., L.Ac. went back to school and will be graduating at the end of April 2023 with her Doctorate in Acupuncture. 13 years after graduating with her Masters degree in Acupuncture, we’ll be calling “Dr. Laura” to the clinic with all her new wisdom on how to help patients.
Here’s what she had to say about her doctorate experience so far: “It’s been so great studying advanced, complex conditions like Lyme’s disease, advanced fertility and gynecological issues, pediatrics, and autoimmune conditions, weighing in with some of the most brilliant minds in the country. Last semester I got to celebrate getting straight A’s in all my classes while juggling family life and running a very busy clinic, all while completing medical internships, studying modern acupuncture research, and learning from live case studies. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to take my training to the next level and serve thousands of patients in the future with this centuries old medicine.”
We can’t wait to see what the future holds upon completing her doctorate this April!
If you’re interested in working with our Medical Director, Laura Parks, this spring, give us a call at 410-847-4766.
Making Your Golden Years More Golden with Less Pain
Many of our patients have been told by their doctors they are “just getting old” and they will “just have to live with the pain” or take medications that have a lot of side effects, and usually stop working as well after a while. Hopeless and fighting pain on a daily basis, losing sleep because they are awoken by pain nightly, our patients finally find Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine as their pain relief solution.
Using cutting edge technology as one of only 3 clinics in the DMV region to offer Ozone therapy and ATP Resonance BioTherapy, specialized electroacupuncture programs specific to a patient’s challenging condition like Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia, or Infertility, our clinical success is unparalleled with over an 85% success rate with these conditions. Results begin in a matter of just a few short weeks.
Ozone is also known as “Activated Oxygen” or O3. Instead of using well-known oxygen aka O2, ozone fully oxygenates any cell or tissue it comes in contact with. Ozone also kills viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus it comes in contact with. Clinically, we use ozone to fully oxygenate cells in conditions that are caused by perceived natural physical decline associated with aging, like Arthritis or Neuropathy. We also see many benefits to using ozone with autoimmune conditions, like Fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr Virus, and Long Haul Covid.
Now there is hope. at Cloud 9 Acupuncture. Begin with a Consultation to learn more. Call 410-847-4766.
