20th Anniversary

In 2000, Gary founded Acu-Market with humble beginnings and a big mission – to empower practitioners with the tools they needed to treat patients.  He did so with a simple shelf in a guestroom of his house. From this modest beginning the family business embarked on a journey of growth from that small guestroom to becoming one of the largest suppliers of acupuncture, herbal, homeopathic and supplements in the United States. To help lead the expansion and diversification of Acu-Market, Gary was joined by his son, Jason in 2007. They identified that practitioners needed so much more than just a “product supplier.” Acu-Market was to become a different kind of company, a one-source “solutions supplier” for practitioners. But there are no shortcuts on the journey to success. With their hard work, determination and sacrifice, one by one they earned the trust of customers by consistently delivering the highest standards of quality, value, integrity and customer service.

As we celebrate the milestone of 20 years in business, Acu-Market wouldn’t be where it is today without you, our loyal customers. We work tirelessly to advance the success of our customers by putting YOU at the center of everything we do. Our customer-first focus has driven our rapid growth the last two decades. More importantly it has given us the opportunity to develop strong, lasting relationships with our customers. These relationships are at the foundation of our success and what drives us each and every day to not only be your trusted supplier but your partner in growth.

Our philosophy is simple: We believe in practitioners. We support you. As more people empowering themselves with alternatives to conventional medicine, acupuncturists have a pivotal role in the rapid transformation of healthcare in this country. Acu-Market understands that practitioners need a supplier, a true partner, to anticipate and address their emerging needs with innovative products and dynamic solutions each step of the way. As your one source supplier, we are committed to an ever-improving, quick and convenient process to obtain your supplies so you have more time to spend on your passion to heal. 

Integrity is at the center of all we do. Acu-Market has always been about doing the right thing for our customers and the acupuncture community. Acu-Market will continue to advocate for the highest standards of integrity for the practice of acupuncture.

Acu-Market has come a long way in the last two decades, but this is no time to rest and reflect on where we have been. As we enter our third decade, we do so with great excitement for the bright future that lies ahead for the acupuncture community. Our commitment to putting you at the center of everything we do is stronger than ever. Our family-owned heritage will always fuel our passion and dedication to provide our customers with solutions and service that exceed your expectations.

We thank you for the opportunity to be your trusted supplier for the last two decades. We look forward to exceeding your expectations by delivering you unmatched quality, value and customer care for years to come.

Holiday Health

‘Tis the Season for Digestive Distress: Natural Alternatives to Break the Holiday Tradition

The holidays are once again upon us. For many people overindulgence and the holiday season go hand in hand. During this time of year, it is difficult to escape the rich, sugary and fatty food that seems to be found wherever you go. For those who overindulge, the holidays can bring heartburn, indigestion and discomfort. Even those who practice moderation can experience such digestion issues over the holidays. While prescription and over-the-counter options are available, there is a long tradition of maintaining digestive well-being through natural and herbal alternatives.

Gastrointestinal Relief by Hevert

Formulated from carefully selected natural active substances, Gastrointestinal Relief by Hevert provides temporary relief from the pressure, cramping and discomfort caused by digestive distress. The quick dissolving tablets help support digestive equilibrium that is negatively affected by stress and nervousness often associated with the holidays.

Organic Digest+

A unique organic food enzyme formula, Organic Digest+ contains 29 powdered fruits and vegetables combined with a select blend of 13 powerful enzymes including 120,000 units of Papain. This organic, Non-GMO Project Verified formula promotes nutrient absorption and helps with digestion after meals.

Easy Digestion – Bao He Wan Plus


Based on the traditional Chinese formula, Bao He Wan, Easy Digestion by Mahima aids the body in supporting healthy digestion and helps alleviate bloating, gas and gastric hyper-acidity.

Digestade

Digestade is a combination of traditional Ayurvedic herbs commonly used to support digestion. Concentrated by technology that combines CO2 extracts with hydrophilic extracts, this new holistic extract can help in maintaining a healthy digestive system not just over the holidays but year-round.

Digestive issues don’t have to be an annual tradition. Incorporating some of these natural and herbal alternatives could bring more holiday cheer and less digestive distress. Visit Acu-Market to shop a comprehensive array of herbal and natural products that can help support digestive system well-being.

POCA Tech Scholarships

Community Acupuncture Scholarship Empowers the Next Generation of Acupuncturists

Community Acupuncture aims to make the physical, mental and emotional well-being associated with acupuncture within the reach of everybody. Acu-Market believes that to strengthen community acupuncture overall, we must strengthen the people who are enhancing the quality of life of others through acupuncture. In partnership with the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), Acu-Market established an annual scholarship at POCA Tech to empower and support the next generation of community acupuncturist also known as punks.

In 2019, Acu-Market was pleased to award scholarships to Zandrea Britt and Jaime Long!

“Thank you again for your investment in student like myself and our education. By awarding me this scholarship, you are allowing me to focus on the most important aspect of school, learning,” said Zandrea Britt. A second-year student at POCA Tech, Zandrea hopes to pay it forward someday. “I hope that one day I will also be able to help a student achieve their goals, like you have helped me.”

“There are so few scholarship opportunities available to students of acupuncture, and as it were, even fewer available to students pursuing a career in community acupuncture.  The fact that Acu-Market is excited about and dedicated to community acupuncture is rare and wonderful!!!” said third-year POCA Tech student Jamie Long.

In addition to the scholarship program, Acu-Market offers special pricing & exclusive benefits to community clinics. For more information, please contact Noor Khan at 561-842-2154 or by email noor.k@acu-market.com

Rethinking Acupuncture Packaging

Striving for Zero-Waste

Recent reporting of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has brought discussion of ‘ethical’ and ‘eco-friendly’ packaging to the forefront. This debris field in the North Pacific is larger than the state of Texas and contains over 80,000 tons of plastic. Of the 35,000 tons of plastic generated each year in the United States, only 3,000 tons is recycled. The vast majority ends up in landfills or as litter on land and sea.

According to a recent study by Global Data, 75% of consumers worldwide now believe that living an environmentally ethical or sustainable lifestyle is important to creating a feeling of well-being. Acupuncture aims to bring about balance and harmony to the body. Even with this growing connection with living an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle and personal well-being, limited action has been undertaken by manufacturers to address the concerns acupuncturists have expressed about plastic and paper waste generated from the packaging of needles.

Increased awareness of the issue does have some manufacturers looking at ways to incorporate more eco-friendly practices regarding the design of their packaging. With the introduction of the Zip-Pak, Korean acupuncture needle manufacturer SMC utilized design elements to reduce the impact their packaging is having on the environment.

With ten needles and one guide tube, the packet design of SMC ZIP-Pak 1000 provides the convenience of having ten needles on hand without the extra waste of blister packaging and unused guide tubes. Produced using recyclable #2 PET and #4 LDPE, the minimal packaging significantly reduces the energy needed to manufacture the pouches with the added value of recyclable plastic that can be put right back into supply chain after use. The streamline packet design allows for 1000 needles to be securely packed in a smaller box. Less bulk weight from unnecessary packaging can reduce CO2 emissions associated with product transport.

The packaging of the SMC ZIP-Pak 1000 represents a step forward in the long journey to create a more circular economy for plastic in which less plastic becomes waste. Acu-Market leads by its values and will continue to seek out improvements that can lead to increased environmental sustainability. A portion of all SMC ZIP-Pak 1000 sold will be donated to Ocean Conservancy. This inspiring nonprofit organization operates multiple hands-on programs dedicated to ocean trash cleanup, protection of marine life and sustainable fishing practices both domestically and internationally.

Cold And Flu

Beyond the Modern Medicine Cabinet: Natural Cold & Flu Remedies

It’s cold & flu season again. At the first sign of illness, chills or just a feeling of being ‘unwell’, some people open their medicine cabinet and turn to a newfangled antiviral prescription medicine. While another new Big Pharma ‘solution’ is just around the corner, there are alternative natural and herbal alternatives to prescription and OTC medicines. A prominent place should be set aside in the modern medicine cabinet for these traditional and natural alternatives, empowering people with more options when it comes to the prevention and treatment of illness.

Cold Away™

Manufactured by Health Concerns® as Cold Away, this special formulation of Gan Mao Ling and Ying Quiao along with other herbs specific to anti-viral qualities has demonstrated to be an effective, fast way to treat cold and flu at the onset of symptoms. Cold Away is not used for the prevention of cold and flu but has a very high rate of patient satisfaction and reported efficacy when taken at the early stages of illness.

Hevert® Cold & Flu Relief

A combination of eight carefully selected natural ingredients, Hevert Flu Relief has been formulated to support the body’s self-healing power. Taken at the first symptoms of the cold or flu, this non-drowsy formula can prevent the illness from worsening or spreading to bronchi or sinuses.

Evergreen® Immune +

Immune+ is a unique herbal formulation consisting of ingredients with tested therapeutic benefits, which help to strengthen your immune system and help prevent infection. Manufactured by Evergreen, Immune+ Granules & Capsules have been shown to be an effective immunity booster and antioxidant.

Yin Qiao

Available in pill and tincture form, Yin Qiao is a great first line of defense against the common cold. Yin Qiao is best taken at the initial signs of a cold or flu, especially when a sore throat is present. If taken in the early stages, it has shown evidence of preventing the illness from appearing and lessening the duration and severity of the cold.
