You Must Be Tired of Living With Chronic Pain.

If you are suffering from Chronic Pain you understand this sentiment all too well.

I have had Chronic Pain since 2015. I started going to Maegan Hodge, L.Ac. to help manage my condition since it was debilitating. I rarely wanted to leave my bed.”

Chronic Pain can affect different parts of the entire body, but some common areas are the BACK, KNEES, SHOULDERS, FEET, and HIPS.

“Most of the time I could barely stand to be touched, the pain was so nagging. I didn’t want to go to work or spend time with my family.”

Doctors often suggest meds that can have uncomfortable side effects or physical therapy that only works when you do it every day at home.

“My life was no longer my own.”

Eventually, this patient did her own research and discovered that a specific type of acupuncture can improve the quality of life and reduce symptoms in patients with Chronic Pain.

Determined to find a clinic with an excellent reputation, she discovered Centered: Richmond and Maegan Hodge.

Maegan has been successfully treating difficult to manage, chronic pain cases for over a decade.

She uses the time-tested science of acupuncture and integrates it with modern medical advancements that encourage healing and recovery from chronic pain.

Research also shows that the effects of acupuncture tend to be LONG LASTING. One large study (a meta-analysis in The Journal of Pain from December 2017) found “clear evidence that the effects of acupuncture persist over time with only a small decrease, approximately 15%, in treatment effect at one year.”

Did you catch that? Patients with chronic pain tend to keep 85% of their relief one year later.

“I will say that my experience here was absolutely life-changing! It’s truly a testament to Maegan’s expertise when my husband can visibly see the improvements!” ”

Results, of course, are not guaranteed, but we do track your progress closely. We do not keep patients for their full program if they are not showing the progress we would expect. The quotes above have been taken from our patients or their reviews.

Failing to take action on your health problems can have unexpected costs

You might feel like you are dealing with your health problems A-OK, but have you stopped to think about how they are impacting your life?

  • Maybe those doctors and pharmaceutical bills are taking a permanent chunk out of your budget.
  • Perhaps you stand or walk less or are less active because you are in pain all the time, or you are depressed.
  • It’s possible you interact with coworkers and loved ones less because you don’t have as much energy as you used to.
  • It could be that you travel less than you used to manage, but you *loved* traveling!
  • Conceivably, you eat out more because preparing food is too much of a burden given your situation.
  • Whatever the impact is, these effects ADD UP.

If this is ringing some bells for you, book your free acupuncture consultation at our Richmond, VA clinic.

We Have The Best Local Reviews for Acupuncture in Richmond, Va.

Our patients are the lifeblood of our clinic, and the reason we are happy to show up to work every day. Namely, we take utter joy in watching their process. A patient will often undergo a complete transformation during their time with us. Someone can go from being miserable, unhappy, sometimes even crying during their consultation to brighter and happier and smiling and laughing over a matter of weeks or months.

Of course, not everyone gets those kinds of results, but we do everything we can to make sure that you do. Primarily, we also monitor you closely to make sure that if you are coming for the duration of your program that you are getting results. We accomplish this by having you fill out weekly progress charts and periodic outcome assessments to check progress. If a patient is not responding to care, we are always happy to get you a good referral.

In summary, if acupuncture is something that you have been considering, we hope that you will give it a chance. It can be a big leap of faith for many people who have not experienced it yet, but these are our favorite kinds of patients. We take pride in helping you feel comfortable with the process!

I came to Centered with allergy issues which Maegan diligently addressed. Since treatment started I have had significantly reduced sneezing, and post nasal drip. Sinus headaches are not longer a thing. The second phase of treatment was to help combat my stress. After a few weeks the extreme fatigue that began around 1pm daily lifted and I am sleeping so much better in the evening. I would whole heartedly recommend Maegan to anyone looking for holistic Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

Life changing. I came here after I herniated a disk in my back and was suffering from horrible nerve pain. Maegan helped me and totally removed my nerve pain week after week. Cannot express how wonderful this place is!

I love Centered. I couldn't move my neck and had lower back issues. I was referred by a friend and was a little skeptic at first being that I never been to acupuncture before. It really worked wonders for me and especially working with Meagan. She is so awesome and really knows what to do. I highly recommend this place.

I have had a wonderful experience at this facility so far, so much so that I am sad that I only have 2 months left on my initial treatment plan! The facilities are very clean and soothing. There is always calming music in the background, the lighting is dimmer in the rooms, and during treatment my feet are heated by a warmer, overall it's very enjoyable. Every time I have a session I walk out feeling relaxed and my symptoms have been improving since implementing treatment. I like Meaghan, she's kind and seems eager and motivated to help me with my problems/issues. I appreciate the detailed intake appointment and her honesty, if she feels she can't help you she will be up front about it and not have you keep coming to appts if there is no improvement. The front desk staff are very sweet. She always recognizes me which is nice. Makes it feel more personal and like I'm cared for. The location is also perfect because it's less than a 5 min walk from my apartment. Very convenient.

I have had fibromyalgia and digestive issues since 2015. I started going to Centered over the summer to help manage my conditions since they were debilitating. I rarely wanted to leave my bed and my GERD symptoms were hard to manage, even with acid reducers.It was very relieving to see weekly progress between the acupuncture and the herbs. It's truly a testament to Meagan's expertise when my husband can visibly see the improvements! I plan on doing some maintenance as needed in 2021 because Meagan is really supportive and encourages wellness.The Centered team go above and beyond to prioritize sanitation and safety, which is a much needed comfort during the pandemic. I cannot recommend them enough.

Starting acupuncture treatment at Centered: Richmond Acupuncture & Wellness is one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. I was nervous to try acupuncture, but I was so desperate to find relief from my chronic back pain I was willing to try anything - and I’m so very glad I did. When I walked into their location for the first time, I knew instantly that I was in the right place. The entire space is warm, inviting, and incredibly comforting. Maegan is all of these things as well. She listens, empathizes, and truly creates a space where you feel safe and cared for. My acupuncture treatment with Maegan has helped ease my pain so much. My appointments are honestly one of the only times in my life when I am able to fully relax. Thank you, Maegan for all the wonderful things you have done for my life. I am forever grateful. I highly recommend anyone and everyone who is struggling with chronic pain issues to give Centered: Richmond Acupuncture & Wellness a try. It might change your life for the better just like it has changed mine.

I have been limping since 2009 due to a paratrooper injury. Megan was somehow able to fix the issue when my primary care provider, physical therapist, and chiropractor couldn't. I will be forever grateful.

Maegan is great! I had a nagging shoulder injury that bothered me for years. I was looking for alternatives to surgery and prescription medications. I did an 8 week program with Maegan and the pain is gone. Dead serious!Maegan works with you to identify if she can help you on your first visit. She will tell you if she can help you or not. I truly appreciated that as a first time experience with acupuncture. I recommend checking her practice out for yourself to see if it is for you!Thanks, Maegan!

If you’ve never tried acupuncture before like me, do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation. You won’t regret it.I was hopeful, but still a little skeptical going into this whole experience, but Maegan has me feeling 90% better after only 5 treatments! I’ve been suffering through shoulder pain off and on, and a friend suggested trying acupuncture at Centered. It is the best gift I’ve ever given myself. I started my treatment during the pandemic, and I feel safe at every appointment because of the COVID protocols they have in place. The treatment rooms are also super cute and cozy. I wanted to stop suffering, and Maegan has helped with that immensely, but there are other unexpected benefits,too-the time away from my phone every week is amazing, I’m sleeping better, and making better lifestyle choices because I feel so much better.

I'm so glad I found Megan and Centered Acupuncture. I had a total knee replacement in 2018 and after a year, still wasn't recovered. The knee remained swollen, stiff, and painful. After just the first session with Megan I had much more freedom of movement in the knee. Now after two months, the knee is just a little tight. I can live with that. Thank you Megan for giving me more relief than the physical therapy did. If any other issues flare up (like my back), I will definitely call Megan first.

I came to Meagan very fit on the outside, but felt like I was falling apart on the inside. I have believed in holistic medicine my entire adult life, and Meagan has been kind, patient and is amazing at listening and treating not only the issues you are aware of, but even those you are not. I truly feel we are not on this Earth to feel sub par, but I have been striving for years to feel my optimal self. After only a few treatments, I am well on my way to feeling the best version of myself. Not only has she re-centered my inner self through acupuncture and herbs, she has improved the mobility and function of my hamstrings that have had nagging issues for well over two years. I am grateful for how in tune with the body Meagan is, and how she can translate everything I say into how she can help heal me. I highly recommend Meagan for both acute and chronic health issues.

Where do I even start with Meagan Hodge and Centered Acupuncture! From my very first visit, I encountered the most thorough, thoughtful, and holistic health history I’ve ever experienced. Maegan listened to everything I had to say and drew connections between symptoms in a way no doctor I’ve been to ever has. She encouraged me to listen to signs my body was saying, and not dismiss them like we are often made to do in Western medicine. Every appointment Maegan has been engaged, is never rushed, and I genuinely felt and know that she cared and was invested in my progress.

I originally went in for a variety of issues, including gastric health, insomnia, chronic headaches, and anxiety. It’s important to understand going in that finding what works for you is a commitment and may involve trying a few herbs that don’t work until she finds the right combination. She will also work with you to figure out a process that works. Taking herbs mixed with water didn’t work for me, so I ended up putting the herbs in vegetarian capsules that I got on Amazon. It does take up a lot of time, but it worked much better for me!

My insurance didn’t cover the treatment, but Maegan worked with me to develop a plan that could fit within my budget. While it was an investment and resulted in my husband and I pulling back expenses elsewhere, to me it was a small price to pay to solve the root of how horrible I felt every day. Maegan has several different payment options to work within your means, and is very clear about the fact that the goal is to get you in a place as quickly as possible where you don’t need to go consistently.

Overall, I cannot recommend Maegan and Centered enough. We would all be so much better off if every health care professional had the openness, intelligence, empathy, and passion that Maegan does for her patients and I’m beyond grateful that I made the investment in myself and my health to work with her.

Maegan was wonderful, always taking the time to listen to the symptoms I was having and asking good questions. I felt very cared for. The treatments were so relaxing and she fine-tuned them as we went along to make sure my issue was being addressed in the best way. I felt 100% better in less time than we had anticipated. I can't recommend her enough!

Meg's approach to acupuncture was new to me. I had extreme tightness in my upper back and neck and so she treated my upper back and neck, in the past I've told acupuncturist about a problem area and they treat the distal end of the issue, literally sometimes working on my feet.

Maegan sits down with you at the beginning of each session to learn and track progress, her bedside manner is kind and professional. You can see the wheels turning as the conversation progresses.

After about 5 sessions my tightness had greatly reduced and I was sleeping well. Both issues I've had ongoing for years. I'm grateful to Maegan and will continue to visit her and refer clients to her.

My visit to Centered was amazing. I felt like I was floating and so relaxed for at least two days afterward. One of the most peaceful experiences I've had. Meagan took time with me to review what was going on in my body and helped relieve some of my chronic knee pain. I'm amazed. Give acupuncture a try. Totally worth it.
