Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine used to stimulate specific points on the body to aid in pain relief. Known for its healing benefits in back and neck pain, tension and migraine headaches, osteoarthritis, knee problems, and more, acupuncture is known to provide long-term healing benefits for a variety of ailments.


Owner and founder of Treating the Root, Mary Chiaponne, knows better than most in the Watertown area the benefits of acupuncture. Having studied massage therapy, Chemistry, and Biology (with a pre-med focus) in her undergrad studies, Mary went on to get her master’s degree in acupuncture from Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. 


Mary will take the time to speak with you about your pain points and desired healing journey to determine the best treatment plan. By blending a variety of natural medicine treatments such as liniments, cupping therapy, gua sha, moxa, and massage with acupuncture, Treating the Root is able to provide robust, well-rounded wellness services designed to help you feel better, relieve pain, ease stress, and live a healthier and happier lifestyle. We also offer massage therapy and cupping therapy as independent services.
