Is Acupuncture Right For You?

Thrive Acupuncture and Wellness is committed to helping you achieve your most balanced life using various treatment modalities individualized to your personal needs. We want to make holistic alternative healthcare accessible to everyone in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

We provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with personalized and professional care developed with each of our clients. Practitioners Alan Suhr and Nic Krueger are both state and nationally certified Acupuncturists.

We use only small gauge, disposable needles to re-establish the balance of energy in the body. The needles are inserted at points in the body that correspond to energy pathways. This stimulation helps to restore the normal balance and flow of ‘Qi’ or ‘Chi’ – your life force.

Nic Krueger is also nationally certified in Chinese Herbology and Alan Suhr is a certified Master of Qi Gong. Thrive Acupuncture and Wellness often pairs Chinese herbal medicine with Acupuncture to address the full range of our patients’ symptoms. Other modalities we practice include cupping, gua sha, and moxa.
