Acupuncture Associates Services


Acupuncture works from the premise that our vital energy, called Qi (pronounced “chee”), circulates through meridians in the body. By harmonizing and balancing the flow of this energy the acupuncturist can create dramatic and positive changes in the health of the patient.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs have been used for centuries. The first traditionally recognized herbalist, Shénnóng, is said to have lived around 2800 BC. There are roughly 13,000 medicinals used in China and over 100,000 medicinal recipes recorded in the ancient literature.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being.

About Us

About Acupuncture Associates

Patients consistently praise Robert’s thoughtful approach and his exceptional listening skills, citing him as the best acupuncturist in Wilmington NC. “I call upon my knowledge as an acupuncturist, herbalist and healer to awaken the healing potential that lies dormant within each of us. Modern medicine is both powerful and useful, but it is failing us in the ways in which Chinese medicine is strongest. True healing is ultimately an inner journey of self-discovery and awakening. I believe Chinese medicine can provide a path through that inner journey of healing and I invite you to walk with me.”


What Our Patients Say

I was greeted with a smile as I entered the office and made to feel welcome as a new patient. Dr. Moffett’s pleasant personality and professional demeanor immediately put me at ease. He was very thorough in reviewing my patient information, listening to my responses to his questions, asking relevant questions and answering my questions. This was my first experience with acupuncture and I was a little apprehensive. This feeling was immediately replaced with a calmness and affirmation that I was right where I needed to be. My treatment was painless and pleasurable and I look forward to continued visits and achieving my health goals.
