GLOVERSVILLE - A new acupuncture practice offering different modalities in Chinese medicine recently opened in the city.
Located at 22 Cayadutta St., The Still Point Acupuncture is owned and operated by Licensed Acupuncturist Jennifer Voorhees.
Her practice includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, electrical stimulation, cupping, heat therapy (moxibustion), and Tuina (Asian bodywork).

Appointments are available during the day, evenings, and Saturdays. For more information call 775-8904.
Voorhees says Chinese herbs available at her office work in conjunction with acupuncture to achieve maximum results. Still Point has a full herbal pharmacy, and each formula is tailored specifically for each person, Voorhees said.
"TSPA believes patients get the most benefit from incorporating Chinese medicine with western medicine while focusing on the whole body. As such, we enjoy collaborating with physicians, chiropractors, and other health care practitioners to help people reach their optimum health. While acupuncture treats a vast array of issues, the most common focus in the clinic is pain [chronic or acute] and women's health," Voorhees said in a statement.
Voorhees was trained in Austin, Texas, at one of the top acupuncture schools in the country and in Chengdu, Sichuan, China, she said. She is originally from northern Virginia and recently relocated from Austin, where she had a thriving acupuncture practice, to Gloversville.
When not in the clinic, she says she enjoys exploring the Adirondacks, listening to live music and riding her horse, Riley.
