Worked like a miracle on my headaches and migraine's. I have had 2 or 3 breakthrough migraines in 6 months since I started treatment. Before this- I’d have at least 1 headache a week and at least 2 or 3 migraines a month. Gina and her staff are so friendly, professional and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

I had been in pain for two and a half months. I had been to doctors and a dentist with no relief. Gina took care of the pain in 10 visits! Gina, Marisa and Sam are the most caring! I highly recommend Acupuncture of Columbia!

I decided to seek out acupuncture to treat a concussion after having pretty bad migraines and vestibular issues. Within a month of acupuncture and traditional pt, I’ve been cleared by my concussion doc and have no symptoms. However, what has really made me fall in love with Acupuncture of Columbia has been its affect on my mental health. I’ve had anxiety for years and have seen the most dramatic reduction in my anxiety after receiving acupuncture than any other treatment. The team is incredibly welcoming and Gina’s energy is so positive and bright; I came away from my initial consultation feeling excited and as though I had made a friend.

I started going a few months ago to approach my health from a gentler less invasive side than Western medicine was willing to give me. AND BOY HAS IT BEEN GREAT! Gina cares about you as a person (as do her lovely staff) and I have felt heard and understood as a patient. Highly suggest making a consultation appointment. As a person with a disability I know my issues aren't going away but Gina is very good at working with each person on an individual basis, I never felt like she was trying to tick off symptoms and put me in a box. (Be sure to take the herbs too!)

Gina and her team are so great. Gina has a passion to heal and help her patients. I feel heard & encouraged by Gina. The other staff, Marisa, Sam & Katerina are also so sweet and I look forward to seeing them each treatment.

I was hesitant to seek out acupuncture, but on the recommendations of family & friends, I decided to seek out Gina for some issues with plantar fasciitis. In the initial assessment, Gina was very thorough as she sought to understand which specific parts of my body were hurting. She did an excellent job of explaining what the treatment would involve. She also makes sure to check in before each treatment, asks if anything has changed in the treated area. Additionally, the welcoming staff and calming environment make each visit a joy. If you’re considering making an appointment, do it! You’ll be glad you did.

Gina and her team are amazing. From the first visit they just make you feel so welcome. Love going. And Gina has helped with my knee pain and honestly I feel better overall. My stress is so much less now. Highly recommended!

Gina, Sam and Marisa were wonderful. I had swelling from a recent knee surgery keeping me from activities even after all the physical therapy but Gina decreased that swelling in no time allowing me to get back on my bicycle! They are fantastic and I can't recommend them more enthusiastically. Please give acupuncture a try if you are hesitant. Gina and her team are the best!!!

Cannot recommend Gina and her team highly enough! My husband and I have been struggling with infertility, so I decided to try acupuncture for the first time to help with DOR and all of the extra anxiety that comes along with it. It sounds cheesy, but I really do feel like Gina's been there with me every step of my fertility journey. She created a detailed care plan to help boost fertility wellness and provide IVF support (including Chinese herbs) and even sent me home with the names/numbers of recommended REs in STL after my husband and I had repeatedly unpleasant experiences with our then-current clinic. Thanks to Gina, we found the perfect doctor in St. Louis and finally feel like we’re in all the right hands and on the right track. In the midst of everything (we're days away from our first egg retrieval), I’m so incredibly grateful for Gina’s care and compassion. She’s truly gifted at what she does, and she listens to and addresses new concerns at every session. Sam and Marisa are so wonderful and warm, too, and greet me by name with genuine smiles every morning, which is such a simple way to make patients feel valued but is SO rare. Highly, highly, highly recommend seeing Gina and her team at Acupuncture of Columbia. I look forward to every session and leave feeling relaxed, at peace, and like I just caught up with old friends.

This is by far the best experience I have ever had in my life. I found healing in my mind, body, and soul. It brought me peacefulness, and calmness. A lot of care has been put into the experience that you feel, see & hear I was cleansed from a lot of stress that I was carrying. Sam is comforting and pleasant. Marissa is efficient and polite. Gina is one of a kind genuine, intelligent, and kind❣️ (EVERYONE should experience this at least once in their life.)

Gina is an AMAZING HEALER!!! I met her 2 years ago after a traumatic event that left me with PTSD. After not sleeping for months due to nightmares, severe anxiety, panic attacks, flashbacks and a nervous system that was stuck in fight or flight, I found relief that I desperately needed. I remember thinking I didn't even know if I could make the 45 minute drive to my first appointment because the images/flashbacks in my mind were so bad and they were constant. Gina listened with a kind open heart and assured me she could help. I felt like I was sharing with a real friend. In the first session, I could tell something was happening within me but I wasn't clear what it was. I was more relaxed for sure. Driving home I was shocked because it was a pleasant drive! The debilitating flashbacks were all but gone and that night I slept without nightmares for the first time! I cried many, many times before seeing Gina again because she had quite literally saved my life. I needed those things to STOP before I could do anything to help myself. I believe I did 10 sessions and herbs for a very reasonable price, especially when the treatment gets to the root of the problem rather than just treating some symptoms. Gina more than exceeded my expectations as a person and a healer. I will be forever grateful to her. I recently contacted Gina again for the ulna nerve problem I was having after having surgery 7 months ago on my elbow. The pain and weakness has continued to worsen. I have now had 3 sessions with Gina and it has improved tremendously. My last session reduced the pain even more than I thought possible. I'm very confident I am in the right place for the healing my body needs. I look forward to every visit. The office staff is always so kind, warm and greet me by name which I really appreciate. That alone says to me, "You are important to us."

Besides just being an all-around rockstar of a human being, Gina's acupuncture treatments have greatly enhanced the quality of my life! I work in the field of evidence-based medicine and have learned about the amazing results with many conditions particularly pain, reproductive, and allergies. It is a shame that there is not funding for large scale studies so that the benefits of acupuncture can be shared and promoted more widely with greater credibility. Gina has treated and helped me with numerous conditions including back and neck pain, allergies, vocal polyps, uterine fibroids, anxiety, and tinnitus. In fact, after suffering for months with pulsatile tinnitus, a side effect of a severe upper respiratory infection, my ears popped immediately half-way through the first treatment and my symptoms resolved completely within a few weeks. For those that are new to acupuncture, it is important to understand that acupuncture treatments are dose dependent like most interventions. Therefore, you will likely need to make a commitment to weekly (or even twice weekly, depending on the condition) for 5 to 12 weeks to see long term results. Most of the evidence in the world medical literature support this concept along with my own personal experience. I strongly recommend Acupuncture of Columbia for its health outcome effectiveness, kind staff, and relaxing environment. You will not be disappointed.

I have had a wonderful time getting treatment with Gina and her team at acupuncture of Columbia. Everyone is so kind and helpful, and the space is always so relaxing and clean. Gina is so amazing and has been so attentive to my case for acupuncture but also goes the extra mile to remember little details. I highly recommend this practice for anyone seeking acupuncture.

This place is lovely! Honestly some of the best care I have gotten anywhere. Gina truly listens to you and provides wonderful acupuncture treatment. I always leave feeling so relaxed and am excited to continue to see improvements in many aspects of my physical and mental health.

I've been a patient of Gina's for a long time and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She is attentive and really listens to what you say when you have your appointments. She is also a wizard with herbal tea blends. I've seen her for everything from aches and pains, to perimenopausal and post menopausal symptoms. She has helped me through so much. I'd highly recommend her to anyone trying to heal through a non western medicine approach.

I started seeing Gina in February while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Acupuncture has made my neuropathy and chemo induced nausea much more tolerable. It’s also helped with stress and insomnia from the steroids I’m taking with treatment.

Gina Butler and the staff at Acupuncture of Columbia are simply wonderful.

i highly, highly recommend acupuncture of columbia. i have suffered chronic neck pain for three years without long term relief from any therapy i had attempted (physical therapy, chiropractic work, varieties of exercise, medication, muscle relaxers, radiofrequency nerve ablation, and more) and honestly (though mistakenly) saw acupuncture of columbia as a last ditch effort. since beginning my treatment in september of 2022, i have seen an unbelievable improvement in my quality of life. (as a college student, it’s pretty difficult when simply going to class requires the majority of my pain-free hours.) i am now able to remain pain free for a full month between treatments, a milestone i truly never believed i would reach. gina and the rest of the staff are incredibly kind and truly make my mornings better on days when i come in. my treatment plan has been clearly communicated to me from the start. i feel very well-informed of my own health and progress, and feel cared for on the more difficult days. if you live in columbia and have been considering acupuncture, i enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend acupuncture of columbia.

March 17, 2023

Gina and her team are wonderful. I've been going here for almost a year and recommend it to everyone. Gina's helped me with tennis elbow, pre-menopausal symptoms, and general health maintenance. She listens and really cares about your treatment. I feel like acupuncture compliments my Western medicine care and has helped alleviate my IBS and digestive issues, as well as brought my stress levels down. I plan to continue going here for a long time.

Eric Kurzejeski

I have dealt with significant chronic neuropathic pain for 30 years. I have been repeatedly to the Mayo clinic and all the Md's Columbia has to offer as well as tried most alternative remedies. I have held off on acupuncture looking for a top notch practitioner. Gina, and her staff, have gone above and beyond, exceeding my expectations. And yes I have seen some reasonable, welcomed, relief from the treatment. But the overall approach and honesty in communicating what may and may not be possible is what sets Gina apart. No false promises here. I would recommend anyone that has a "hard to treat" case explore what Gina and her practice has to offer.

I’m so happy that Gina is in Columbia, Mo. I have quit taking Aleve or anything else because of acupuncture with Gina. Also, I can now walk barefoot.

Acupuncture has certainly helped my husband and I improve in quite a few health issues! We always look forward to each treatment! When you walk into Acupuncture of Columbia, you are immersed in the feeling of health! You'll receive the kindest, most considerate care ever from Gina, Master acupuncturist, and the entire staff, who are so sweet and attentive! I was always so scared of needles ( from drawing for blood test, shots, etc.) this scene is totally different. The needles barely penetrate. Their soothing music and peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by genuine, caring professionals is simply a delightful experience! We are so very thankful! We feel healthier, more relaxed and rejuvenated! We highly recommend Gina to everyone! Go with Acupuncture of Columbia, it will be one of the best decisions you've ever made! Mike and Tammy

Gina has been treating my migraines for several years and they have improved greatly. The frequency of my migraines has diminished and continues to do so. I now go monthly for a maintenance session. Gina and her staff are wonderful. Trying acupuncture and being treated by Gina was the best decision I made.

I’m an orthopedic surgeon who does a variety of activities including yoga and CrossFit. I’m plagued regularly with injuries that seem to recur just as I’m reaching new goals. I am so fortunate to have found Gina. She is a gifted practitioner and has made my chronic injuries behave and even disappear so I can be my best. There are lots of tools on the health toolbox. Pills and surgeries are appropriate treatments for many conditions. For others—not so much.. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a powerful tool and has much to offer for virtually every problem. I don’t hesitate to push anyone to see Gina and experience how TCM can benefit them.

I have cervical dystonia and receive a lot of treatments for pain management but Gina's acupuncture is by far my favorite and the only one I look forward to. Each session she tailors treatment on my current pain locations and it gets me through the weeks! Everyone there knows your name and really seems to care!

Emily Brown

Gina is the best thing that has ever happened to me! I had struggled with chronic pain for years before I found her and she really listened to me and helped me be able to manage my pain. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Gina is awesome! She is so kind and really cares about her patients. Acupuncture helped me through the first half of my pregnancy when I felt miserable with early pregnancy symptoms. It relieved a lot of nausea and anxiety and I am incredibly grateful. Her staff are very nice, helpful and welcoming. The whole experience is relaxing and was truly one of the best parts of my weeks! I will be back for more! Highly recommend.

I luckily found Acupuncture of Columbia in June 2021 and have been receiving monthly treatments since. The energy in the clinic/office is one of positivity, care, compassion and wellness. I am always greeted warmly and quickly placed in a treatment room. At my first appointment Gina patiently listened to me about my concerns and goals. She then thoroughly explained her treatment plan and prescribed a personalized herb formula to accelerate my healing. Gina is energetic, thoughtful and professional. It's a joy to visit with her. I'm receiving maintenance treatments now. Each appointment is like visiting friends who only want to see you succeed and want you to reach your goals. I feel so welcome and refreshed after each session. Gina continues to provide top notch care and it's clear she cares for her patients. I highly recommend Gina and her team at Acupuncture of Columbia.

Acupuncture of Columbia is the most restful and aesthetically pleasing healing environment I have ever encountered. The office staff exude a calming and welcoming presence, and Gina embodies professional excellence, balanced with enthusiasm and peaceful confidence. Every session is like a spa treatment, and I feel spoiled and so privileged to be on the receiving end of such wonderful care. Thank you for the intentional and excellent service that you provide, it means so much.

I was not treated here but did drive a significant distance for a new patient consult which was advertised as a deal for $40. When I called I asked for pricing information and the receptionist told me she couldn't really give me an estimate because it varies so much. I should've known the cost was going to make me balk but I thought eh what can it hurt. The pricing does have a discount if you pay for the total up front but the cost on a per visit basis is $200 a session which is on a printout they filled out so it did feel purposefully vague to be told the cost varied. I just wanted to see if this could help me. If you do decide to discontinue the plan and paid upfront at discount the sessions will be refunded at the per visit rate. For me the discounted rate at 20 visits was 2500. Per visit would be 4000. I will say that the staff all seemed very nice but being upfront with pricing would be beneficial especially when someone states they are driving an hour to your office.
