Better! Acupuncture

Welcome! As of October 2021, Better! is treating again.  However, Better! has had some changes sinceSeptember. I am no longer processing insurance and am not a preferred provider for any insurance companies, for now. I hope to change this, but for now the paperwork involved is detrimental to my business. When I change my business structure, hopefully in January 2022, I hope to be able to process insurance again. 

As you would expect, our cleaning procedures are stringent.  In our acupuncture rooms we have medical grade air purifiers running all the time, we clean with EPA approved cleaners, we no longer use sheets and it has more of a clinical feel, because we are more clinical to protect us all, but the care and kindness are the same.
If you have questions, contact me at And to be clear, #blacklivesmatter, #LGBQTlivesmatter, #brownlivesandimmigrantsmatter #hatehasnohomehere

Welcome to Better! Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine. 

I'm Rhonda, I live in and have my private acupuncture practice the community of Lauraville/Hamilton. 

I graduated in 1999 from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute , which later became Tai Sophia then MUIH. I have served thousands of people over the years while I owned About Chi Acupuncture in Fells Point, taught/supervised at Tai Sophia and worked at Penn North Recovery Center in West Baltimore. 

Life in 2021 is complicated and Better! Acupuncture is a safe space for any person who wants to heal. 

We will work together to address your medical conditions, manage daily stressors and prevent future dis-eases by staying well. I can advise you in simple lifestyle changes, herbal formulas and practices that will support the changes you want to see. I completed my clinical Doctoral work at the University of Maryland's Kaufman Cancer Center-working with patients as they dance the diagnosis of cancer is a mission of Better!.   

During our partnership I promise to provide a listening as we plan and develop the plan to reach your goals.  Honoring and acknowledging each step along the way.

1 on 1 Full Body Acupuncture
Community Acupuncture

Traditional Full Body Private acupuncture is the best choice for people who want highly specialized individualized acupuncture. It is also the best choice for people with complicated medical conditions. Full Body allows the acupuncturist to access any point on the body, If you have insurance that covers acupuncture it is expected that you will be getting 1 on 1 Full Body Acupuncture treatments. Insurance covers acupuncture if you have a qualifying medical condition, normally they require pain.

Community Acupuncture at Better! can be either group auricular acupuncture (ear acupuncture)  or group traditional community acupuncture with access to the arms/hands, legs/feet and head/ears.

Sometimes quantity is more important than the specialized treatments of private acupuncture. This is especially true with chronic conditions, sleep issues, addictions and stress related conditions.

Try it on/Relaxing Acu-treatment

Sometimes you just need to chill. You could take an hour and a half and try an ultra relaxing, melt your legs to jello, chill your stress, get happy, delicious treatment. This is a treatment to lessen the effects of toxic superficial energy and create an easier pathway for you to sleep and have an easier time being easy.  You will get acupuncture, moxibustion, reflexology and other manual therapies like gua sha and cupping.

Chinese Herbal medicine is very powerful, I was trained to do this and can supply simple patent formulas for common conditions. For patients who would benefit more from a raw formula, I partner with Apricot Forrest in Remington to provide the best care with high-quality Springwind raw herbs. 

Prices vary- email for a consultation for a patent formula or call for a collaborative raw formula. Or to find out what the difference is! 443-570-3710


For group events for schools, businesses, parties, non-profits, support groups and Better! can provide a practitioner to come to you and give your group auricular acupuncture for relaxation, focus and zen! We can treat up to 30 people an hour- price varies but around $75 an hour depending on how many practitioners are needed!
