Why Choose Kingoff Acupuncture?



I've been in continuous practice since August of 2000 and I've worked with thousands of patients. I've attended hundreds of hours of continuing education, am a continuing education provider & Acupuncture instructor. I not only studied with luminaries such as Dr. Richard Tan, Alex Tiberi, Dr. John Chen, Dr. Jake Fratkin, and Honora Lee Wolfe, I've hosted their lectures and had them as house guests. When dealing with complex cases, I don't wonder what they would do, if I don't know, I call and ask them.




I'm results-oriented, I want to meet or exceed your expectations. I do not require patients to make advance commitments to a series of treatments. Many Acupuncturists are process-oriented. Their practice is based upon reenacting treatments from centuries ago. The focus is on being faithful to a tradition. Healthcare is a service, not a ritual. My goal is to get you back to your life unless and until you have other needs.




Acupuncture consists of many techniques and can be performed in many environments. I practice with a gentle touch, most patients barely feel the needles going in or out. I  provide care in a setting that offers privacy and tranquility. I believe that results are better when the Acupuncturist is seeing patients singly and privately than in a group setting. Your treatments are always just between you and me.




I was born and raised here in Wilmington, NC. I've lived and worked here my entire life outside of school. For several years, I was part of my family's jewelry business, Kingoff's Jewelers, which has served the area for over 100 years, since 1919.

I've not only held the public trust in this area for 18 years,but I was also a state official for six years while on the NC Acupuncture Licensing board. I spent four years as Chair of the Rules Committee and a year as Board Chair.
