How We Treat
Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system to send chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical messengers direct the body's natural healing abilities, hormones, and pain pathways.
Acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance as a safe medicine whose health effects are increasingly being understood through clinical studies. It is accepted and promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American College of Physicians (ACP).
Chinese Herbology has been practiced for 3,000 years, predating western pharmacology. Its efficacy and safety has been time-tested, and is a cornerstone of Chinese Medicine.
RVA Acupuncture is a board-certified herbal clinic. Formulas are prescribed for the needs of individual patients. Our herb suppliers follow standards of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO).
Frequency-specific microcurrent is painless and non-invasive and suitable for most anyone. Significant advances and research have demonstrated and proven the effectiveness of microcurrent to promote optimal wellness, decrease inflammation, reverse aging, and heal trauma in ways previously considered impossible. Microcurrent has been clinically proven to increase ATP (Adenosine triphosphate --our cell's fuel) by up to 500%. That means collagen and elastin production to repair tissues, muscles and skin.
Our cutting-edge technology is FDA-approved.
RVA Acupuncture has fertility programs to help your family grow. Whether you are suffering from unexplained infertility, PCOS, fibroids, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriages, sperm mobility/motility issues, or irregular cycles.
The program helps to:
Restore, balance & regulate menstrual cycles to aid conception.
Improve cervical mucus, ovarian function, and blood flow to the ovaries and uterus
Reduce miscarriages and bolster the immune system
Reduce uterine contractions after embryo transfer and side effects of medications
Improve the thickness of the uterine wall lining and quality of oocytes within 3 months
Improve male-factor fertility
This is one of our most popular and successful programs because we help bring your dreams to life.
Dry needling aka trigger-point therapy has gained traction in effectively treating myo-fascial and chronic pain through the release of inhibited muscles and dysfunctional muscle fibers. Ms. Lee has had advanced training in both Dry Needling and Physical Acupuncture with best practices endemic to both.
How We Work
A consult is required to discuss your health concerns, briefly go over your health history, and determine if we can help and accept you as a new client.
Our practitioner will give her best recommendation for types of therapies that are right for you, and estimated duration and frequency of visits.
Comprehensive Care Plan
There are 3 stages to a successful Care Plan:
Investigative: In this stage we measure your response to treatment and build momentum.
Corrective: Reduction in problematic symptoms and restoration of your body's ability to function again.
Maintenance: Crucial for lasting benefits as you return to work or the activities you love most.
What People Are Saying
Receiving acupuncture treatment from Dr. Vicky Lee has been life changing for me! I had my first treatment... because I threw my back out…With my back feeling better, I told Vicky that I had been wanting to wean off anxiety medicine that I had been taking for 15 years. I had tried the previous year but was unable to. We began treatment and I am happy to report that I am no longer taking that medicine. In fact, I had also been taking blood pressure medicine... and I am now off that too. At my last check-up my primary care told me that my blood pressure was perfect and I could stop taking that medication. I am so happy with my decision to visit Dr. Lee. I am a healthier person now and her treatments have truly been
life changing! – Brad
I owe this Woman more than I could muster in years! She has the magic touch, she got me back on my feet after one of the worst nerve pinches in my life. I had to walk my daughter down the aisle in 10 days when I saw her for the first time. I was desperate, after two sessions she freed my back up so well I could barely feel any pain. Vicky is the best!” – Tom
Vicky is amazing!! She has done wonders for my Rheumatoid Arthritis where I no longer am using prescription drugs from my Rheumatologist. (which my Rheumatologist is fully aware of and in agreement with.) It is so nice to actually get my life back. :)
My experience with Vicky ... has truly been life-changing. I have suffered from horrendous menstrual migraines ... for 30 years. Over the last 3½ years, I started becoming violently ill with my migraines. For 72 hours every few weeks, I couldn't get out of bed or function. The combination of Vicky's treatments and herbs she prescribes have helped me tremendously. I haven't been sick in two months!
I highly recommend her! — Mary
Meet Your Acupuncturist
Vicky Lee, LAc
Vicky Lee, L.Ac. is a nationally-licensed Acupuncturist and Herbologist with a Masters from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She relocated from San Diego in 2018. When she got to know and love Richmond, she commemorated it by adopting the name RVA Acupuncture three years later.
Ms. Lee arrived at her specialty when, after years of practice, she recognized there was a population that was not being supported by western medicine – especially retirement-aged folks and those in chronic pain; those who are told they "have to live with it".
She has helped many of them to enjoy life again and feel like themselves again.
