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.

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.
Acupuncture Research: Neuropathy Solutions are Here!
One exciting piece of compiled research breaks down many times of neuropathy and how acupuncture was used to improve the various types of acupuncture called, “Acupuncture for the Treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.”
Results of 13 clinical trials showed, “most long-term follow-ups favored acupuncture at 4 weeks,56,60 5 weeks,61 7 months, and 13 months,55 ” and “all four RCTs56,60,61,62 used validated CTS-specific scales (Table 2) and reported significant improvement with manual acupuncture56,60,62 and electroacupuncture61 compared with baseline in the Global Symptom Score,56,60 Boston Carpal Tunnel Score,61 Carpal Tunnel Self-assessment Questionnaire,62 and Visual Analogue Scale61 (Table 3). Three of the four RCTs included showed significantly greater effectiveness of acupuncture compared with night splinting,61 sham acupuncture,60 oral vitamin B1 and B6,60 and oral prednisolone.56 ”
Acupuncture-induced changes in nerve conduction parameters
“NCS were performed in included trials on DPN and CTS (Table 4). With respect to motor nerve function, acupuncture produced significant effects on median nerve compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitude, median nerve distal motor latency (DML), and motor nerve conduction velocity (NCV) of the median, ulnar, and peroneal nerves. Compared with medication control, acupuncture caused significantly greater improvement in DML and in median, ulnar, and motor NCV.”
Sensory NCS revealed that acupuncture caused an increase in sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) amplitude in the median nerve, lowered median nerve distal sensory latency (DSL), and increased median and peroneal nerve NCV.”

The Acupuncture profession has been extremely busy the last 10 years with clinical trials, experiments on how effective specific acupuncture protocols are for different conditions. Up until about 10 years ago, many clinical trials on acupuncture were skewed because the “control” in the experiments was “sham acupuncture.”
Sham acupuncture and regular acupuncture had to be “double blinded” in the original clinical trials, and therefore were done with something placed on the skin and a plastic “guide tube” used to tap the acupuncture needle into the skin. Participants in the clinical trials were not sure if they were receiving the sham acupuncture or the regular acupuncture, because the tapping sensation was the same for both. Another way sham acupuncture was performed was to needle places on the body that were not the exact anatomical acupuncture point locations, however the needle placements were often still located on the acupuncture pathway or close enough to an acupuncture point to still stimulate an acupuncture point and create clinical improvements in the participants.
The more impressive clinical trial results are those that compare acupuncture to another health modality, such as pain medication or physical therapy. Acupuncture often is shown in these clinical trials to be significantly more effective in improving patient outcomes and getting better clinical results in treating most conditions.
You can see more acupuncture research (and ALL types of medical research!) for yourself, by exploring research on the government regulated public medical database, www.PubMed.gov
If you look at research, I do suggest reading how the experiment was conducted, what the ‘control’ of the experiment was, and how big the sample size was, and for how long.
At Cloud 9 Acupuncture, we specialize in treating many types of neuropathy, including peripheral neuropathy, bell’s palsy, and diabetic neuropathy, as well as chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy.

Boasting over a 90% success rate in treating conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, Lupus, Lyme’s disease, Arthritis, and other chronic, complicated conditions, it’s no wonder patients are starting to recommend their family and friends to this “alternative option.” For some patients, we are their only option left.
With the addition of advanced therapies such as ATP Resonance BioTherapy TM and Ozone Regenerative Therapy TM our patients are feeling better than ever.

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.
