Acupuncture for Everyone.

Encircle Acupuncture was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to the healing benefits of acupuncture.

our story

Our founder, Alexa Hulsey, started her acupuncture practice like most do – with a traditional private room clinic. However, she quickly became frustrated that her friends couldn’t afford her prices or get treated as often as they needed.

That’s why Alexa opened Encircle Acupuncture (formerly East Nashville Community Acupuncture) as a community acupuncture clinic. Treating patients in a community setting on a sliding payment scale allows us to keep acupuncture affordable and accessible to everyone.

Since opening our first location in East Nashville in January 2010, we have served thousands of patients throughout middle Tennessee. We have since grown to two locations – East Nashville and Bellevue – and have seven licensed acupuncturists on staff. We are Nashville’s oldest and largest community acupuncture clinic!

Our Mission

At Encircle Acupuncture, it’s our goal to make acupuncture affordable and accessible for as many people as possible by treating patients in a low-cost, high-volume community setting.

Our Values

Create a safe and 
inviting space for all.

We believe that everyone deserves community, connection and access to affordable, quality healthcare — that’s why everyone is welcome and safe here, regardless of gender or gender identity, race, national origin, age, income, ability or disability, marital status or familial situation, religion, size and shape, sexual orientation, or political beliefs.

Keep it simple.

Healthcare shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why we make everything simple and streamlined for our patients—from making appointments to receiving treatment.

Bring your best.

Our patients deserve our very best. That’s why we show up every day with the goal of providing patients with the highest level of care possible. We leave our personal stuff at the door so we can focus on serving our patients well.

Lead with love and gratitude.

We truly appreciate our patients. And we reflect that in how we welcome them, listen to them, treat them and remember them. We treat others with compassion and genuinely care about our patients and coworkers

our community

Encircle Acupuncture is a community of people who are healing together.

Treating patients in a community setting is how traditional acupuncture is practiced in many Asian countries. We brought this model to Nashville because we believe the shared experience of acupuncture can improve healing, while building stronger relationships in our community.

Our community is filled with people from all walks of life who share the same goal – getting healthier. We believe a room full of people healing together is nothing short of magic.
