You’re likely here right now because you’re ready to experience greater physical or emotional health. Maybe you struggle with chronic aches and pains, you’re finding it difficult to turn your mind off and deeply relax in your life, or your metabolism just isn’t what it used to be. It could also be that you could use more energy, joy, and balance in your daily life.
If you’re like many of our patients, you’re seeking an alternative or complement to conventional medicine. You want to get to the root cause of your health problems– not just put a temporary bandage on them. Perhaps Western medicine hasn’t been the answer for you.
Our acupuncture practice has helped many people just like you. We understand that health is so much more than the absence of disease. Your health is the most precious asset you have. There is nothing more important than getting proactive about your health, investing in your well-being, and choosing a lifestyle that fosters longevity and vitality.
Our mission at Common Ground Wellness and Louisville Acupuncture Clinic is to provide compassionate and effective holistic healthcare. We offer customized treatments as well as patient education and empowerment backed by years of experience in complementary and alternative medicine modalities.
Are you ready to feel better and take your health to the next level? Great! We are here to help.
Acupuncture really is for everyone. We can all benefit in some way from regular treatment. Many different diseases can be addressed and we have had great success with both internal and external illness. If for some reason, you do not see your current complaint listed below, don’t worry! Contact our office and we can discuss your symptoms with you to determine if acupuncture will be an effective option.
First of all, relax! It’s not as scary as you may think. Many people are nervous when they arrive for their first acupuncture treatment. The acupuncture needles are virtually painless and we am quite good at putting you at ease and making sure you are comfortable and feel safe. We will explain to you what we will be doing, how it feels, and will needle ourselves to show you exactly what to expect. Any and all questions are answered before we move forward.
Helping other people live their lives well is the goal of our practice. Sometimes it is an attitude and sometimes it is a physical limitation that holds us back. Fortunately, acupuncture treatment with a skilled provider can address both sides of this coin. We encourage you to seek this truth for yourself by scheduling a treatment with our office. You have a choice. You can chose to be well. Together we can work to bring your body back into balance.
“I have been treated for headaches for over four years but have not been able to overcome the every three day ordeal. Shelby VanCleve has been able to control not only my headaches but other pains in my neck, arms and legs. She has been a blessing to me because she restored the quality of life I had hoped for in my retirement.”
“Shelby has been working on my left knee for three weeks and has lessened the pain considerably. Also I have some arthritis in the left hand and the pain is all but gone just from two sessions of acupuncture. It is amazing! Thanks, Shelby”
“I found Shelby and acupuncture after being blessed with amazing insurance that covered alternative medicine! I tend tohave trouble sleeping and am also always looking for natural ways to reduce stress and boost my immune system. Acupuncture has truly helped improve my overall health and it is currently my favorite “self care” treat! After a session of acupuncture I feel like I’ve taken a long walk, done yoga and had a nap all in one package. My entire family (including two teenage daughters) see Shelby for acupuncture and we all love it. I HIGHLY recommend contacting Shelby and trying acupuncture. She is extremely personable, caring and sweet. You’ll love it!”
“Shelby has been a life saver to me on a number of occasions!! I suffer from MAJOR headaches and I can see her and she can find exactly where it’s hurting and take care of that!!!! She is so in tune to what my body is going though!!!! She is understanding and takes such good care of me! I look forward to seeing her every six weeks! Thanks Shelby! You’ve helped me with my headaches!! I am no longer being held back!”
“I just want to tell this blog how pleased I am with my recent acupuncture treatment. I believe I saw Shelby 5 times. The treatment she gave me was unlike any other acupuncture treatment. It got down to the root of the issue not just skimming the surface. She actually reads the chart before beginning treatment, not assuming she knows what it wrong but asks where the problem lies. I am very fortunate that she is a competent, reliable practitioner. Thank you very much Shelby.”
“I am currently receiving treatment at the Louisville Acupuncture Clinic. I have had Fibromyalgia for years with many different treatments including medication which has no significant effect. I have back pain, allergies poor sleep and other problems. The loss of flexibility has been very incapacitating to say the least. I have received 2 treatments so far and I am able to tell that there is a significant improvement. I have much more flexibility in my back and neck area and my allergies do not seem to be bothering me and this is usually a very bad time for allergies. I would definitely recommend treatment for anyone who has given up on getting any help. Shelby is very professional and very thorough. I am so blessed to have found her.”
“If you are looking for a healer, Shelby is the real deal. The acupuncture is great. I think what sets Shelby apart is that she listens and then asks questions. The answers I’m discovering (and continue to discover) are powerful and life changing. If you want to get well, I HIGHLY recommend Louisville Acupuncture Clinic.”
“Louisville Acupuncture Clinic has helped me to live a wellness lifestyle. The acupuncture, along with the massage and chiropractic offered, help me to function at my peak potential! The setting was calming and peaceful. I recommend their services to anyone looking to reclaim their life and live well!.”
“Shelby is a great acupuncturist and a genuinely good person. She is easy to talk to and you can tell immediately that she really cares for her patients. Not all acupuncturist are the same some are bad, while others are good, Shelby is great. Anyone that doesn’t partake in her sessions miss out on all of the extra knowledge and training that she possesses. Her sessions aren’t just acupuncture it’s much more that encompasses spiritual healing and all culminates into a unique experience.”
“Shelby’s knowledge of the body and her authentic desire to help clients become healthy is phenomenal. She successfully treated my TMJ condition and rid me of pain along with various other symptoms. I cannot say enough good about Shelby and her services. It was my first experience with acupuncture and I did not know what to expect. She immediately put me at ease. Improvement was realized during each session. I highly recommend Shelby and this type of healing modality.”
“Shelby is awesome. She is easy to talk to, always makes me feel better, more relaxed, and is genuinely interested in fixing what is wrong with your body!! I have had acupuncture many times before but she is the best!!!!”
“A needle-phobic scoffer of alternative medicine, I went to see Shelby with great trepidation and a certain (ok, a LOT) of skepticism. I was pleasantly surprised to find a very qualified, capable practitioner who is a fantastic diagnostician who is willing to search for the answers to my specific problems. Shelby is an expert with the needles, and I rarely feel them. After a session I feel relaxed and my severe RLS symptoms give me significantly less trouble for a few days.I highly recommend Shelby!”
“I found Shelby after months of struggling to improve my health. When traditional medicine has not offered real solutions, Shelby has. I am sleeping peacefully after years of insomnia. My energy levels are getting better every week and I am finally hopeful that I can get back to enjoying activities that add fun to life. Shelby offers professional compassion and natural health solutions that heal, allowing life to flow naturally as God designed.”
“AWESOME! Simply stated I had great results with treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome. I am completely off the medicine for RLS and sleeping through the night without any episodes after 6 treatments. We are now working on my chronic headaches with good results after just a few treatments. Shelby is great, easy going and listens well. I highly recommend Shelby!”
“For the past several months, I have begun weekly acupuncture sessions at Common Ground Wellness / Louisville Acupuncture. I met the owner, Shelby VanCleve through my real estate business, and I decided to visit her for shoulder pain relief. What I discovered was a form of relaxation and meditation I have never before experienced, not even through my yoga. I highly recommend this venerable form of ancient Chinese healing and wellness. Shelby VanCleve is a caring, compassionate and professional healer. I highly recommend her.”
