Everyone there is so welcoming. The atmosphere is quiet with relaxing music playing throughout. The table is soft and can be heated to your preference and there's a heat lamp keeping your bare feet warm. Still not comfortable? They'll offer you a blanket. Gina is genuine and remembers conversations she has with you and will ask about those things/people at your next visit. Gina is encouraging, always asking how you're doing so she can better decide how to treat you. When I first started treatments here, I felt like I'd gotten back to around 70% from a fall I'd had nine months prior. Now I feel like I'm back to 90 something percent (and all I did was lie on a soft, warm table and almost dose off!). I plan to continue for even more improvement. Give this place a try. You'll quickly feel like you're among friends!

I had a wonderful experience with Acupuncture of Columbia. I was in Columbia because a family member was having a medical procedure and started having severe pain in my hip/back/sciatica. They were able to get me in super fast and helped me so much. I super appreciated that they would see me knowing that I wouldn’t be a long term client due to actually living far away! Thank you, Gina! You are amazing! Everyone was so friendly and made me feel so welcome and comfortable!

I am forever grateful to Gina for helping me with an internal pain that no one could diagnose, back/neck pain and getting my hair to grow back. Laying on her table is the most relaxed I have ever been in my life, it's almost hard to explain unless you try. For me, when I walk out of her office I have pain relief, and the feeling you get after meditation and a power nap!

Acupuncture of Columbia, Inc. is the place to be for healing the past and the present for a healthy future here and now. I started going to Gina Butler for help with numerous symptoms, triggered by an in-depth call for healing, by my body, hosting a skeletal system violated in my childhood. It's been a long healing journey, and it has moved miraculously, thanks to Gina being a key healer, on my team, with her acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I appreciate her greatly, along with her welcoming and caring staff! ❤️

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.

Gina is wonderful to work with! She's so encouraging and optimistic and will gladly answer any questions you have about acupuncture. Upon first meeting her, you can tell that she knows her stuff and will give you the best care she can give. She treats patients like old friends and provides an energizing yet calming environment to feel welcome in. I've been seeing her for acupuncture related to fertility and stress, and have already noticed a difference in my body's stress levels! The world could definitely use more people like Gina!

Acupuncture of Columbia and Gina's wisdom have supported me in having a healthy menstrual cycle, creating stress relief, and, most recently, in healing a fractured foot. Also, the staff here are always so kind and professional. Most importantly, Gina's precise understanding of the body's systems and how energy moves in our body means that every session I leave feeling so rested and so vibrantly healthy. I highly recommend receiving acupuncture at Acupuncture of Columbia for whole health of body, mind and energy!

Jessica Brock

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!

Gina saved my breath, if not my life when I began seeing her for uncontrolled asthma more than 5 years ago. After one treatment, I was able to breathe more freely than I believed possible. Soon, with physician approval, I stopped daily high dose steroids and 2 inhalers I'd taken for years. I've seen her once per month ever since to maintain these gains.

Natasha Parker

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.

I have been seeing Gina for about two year now and when I first started with her I was have anywhere from 2 to 3 migraines a month. Once I started my treatment Gina got me into such a great place that I was maybe having one migraine a month if even that. With her treatments I was in such a great spot. Then once I found out I was pregnant I started getting bad migraines again and with being limited on what I was able to take nothing was working for me. Gina came to the rescue. I started seeing her once a week and she gave me some tacks to use in between visits if I started to have a bad headache/migraine. She properly showed me where I could place the tacks and they have been a life saver. Tylenol wasn’t working for me but ever since I started using the tacks I haven’t had to use Tylenol. Thank you Gina for everything you have done!

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

I developed an extremely annoying case of eczema when I moved to Missouri three years ago. I saw two different dermatologists. Both were unable to get the situation under control, no matter what they tried or prescribed - including various cortisone and immune suppressant creams, and all kinds of antihistamines. The rash was on my neck, shoulders, and face - and made me completely uncomfortable. I resolved that I would just need to endure it, which is basically what others with eczema AND the doctors said - "Sorry, there is no cure for eczema - the best you can hope for is more good days than bad." Gina took a different approach 🙂 She prescribed an herbal formula, which changed everything. Within a week my symptoms were gone. Now, it flares up now and again but 1 day of herbs basically takes care of it. I see Gina for any and every problem I have and she is simply awesome. I especially wanted to write about her magical eczema powers, though, so that everyone else who is suffering knows they have an option!

Gina and her team gave me a new chance at life I never thought possible. I struggled with UTIs for years and tried everything...going to specialists, taking antibiotics, taking various supplements, and changing my diet and lifestyle. NOTHING. WORKED. The constant stream of UTIs left me feeling anxious and seriously impacted my quality of life and the relationships in my life. I had to miss out on so much because my UTIs kept me confined to the bathroom. At my first visit with Gina, I came in crying because my spirit was so broken, and now after nine months of treatment, I come in crying happy tears because I haven't felt this good in YEARS!!! My UTIs are gone, my menstrual cycle has never been better, and I feel amazing! I so highly recommend Gina and her team. Try it out, you won't regret it! If I could give them six stars I would!

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.)

I have been going to Acupuncture of Columbia for several months and have seen a difference in my body. Today I went in with a terrible migraine and Gina was so kind and caring. She worked her magic with her placement of the needles and I walked out feeling like a new woman! The migraine was gone and I couldn’t be more grateful!

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.

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 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.

Gina has helped my body get back in balance with itself. I am always rejuvenated after my therapy with Gina and so much less stressed out. I also appreciate her ability to mix special herbs for specific ailments. All of her services are absolutely worth it. I will also soon try the massage therapist too.

I recently completed 10 acupuncture sessions with Gina to treat plantar fasciitis. If you have ever had plantar fasciitis you know it can be very painful! I have a 98% relief in pain. This was my first experience with acupuncture and pleased I tried it. I would definitely have acupuncture again in the future. The staff members are all very nice adding to my positive experience. The office/patient areas are very relaxing and comfortable which also enhanced whole experience. Thank you Gina,

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."

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.

Since I was very young I have battled migraines. It finally got so bad that I was averaging 3 debilitating migraines a week. I would sit under my desk at work with the lights out and try not to cry or throw up. I decided to start seeing Gina after doctors, MRIs, neurologists, allergists, chiropractors and all the meds never worked. My only regret is that I didn’t go to her sooner!!! Finally in my 30’s after 20+ years of battling migraines, acupuncture has gotten me down to less than 5 A YEAR! Gina has been life changing for me! And it’s also great that she happens to be the sweetest person in the world too!

I moved to Columbia in 2015 and shortly after the move got very sick. Being new to Columbia I didn't know who to turn to which was scary and stressful. I feel extremely luck to have found Gina - her acupuncture and Chinese herbs healed my body and now I recommend her to all my friends.

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.

Kelly Howe

I would highly recommend seeing Gina! When I started seeing her for acupuncture in December of 2019, I was experiencing constant fatigue and hadn’t had a menstrual cycle in almost 9 months. After just 2 appointments(2 weeks) my energy started to return, my mind was clearer and I was back on a regular cycle. I continue to feel better(and have a regular cycle) and the longer I see her and I no longer feel fatigued during the day! Her bedside manner is warm and caring and she always puts me in the best mood:)

Since I have been getting acupuncture I have not had to have any eye injections for my Macular Degeneration. The Retinal Specialist doesn’t believe that acupuncture makes any difference. I believe and no injections…I’m a happy camper! Gina is extremely professional and compassionate.

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.
