We are still so amazed at the effectiveness of this alternative medicine. Our goal is to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to our community to positively change lives like it did for my wife and I.

Modern Acupuncture™, the first franchise to make the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture available to people in an accessible and affordable delivery, is now open at the River Oaks Shopping Center at 2021 W Gray St, Houston, TX 77019.
The 1,340 sq. ft. clinic features nine zero gravity recliners where acupuncture is delivered by licensed acupuncturists. This marks the first location in the city of Houston and second location to open in greater Houston, following the Sugar Land clinic which opened earlier this month. In total, there will be at least 45 locations that will open across Texas, with 20 clinics in the Houston area.
Modern Acupuncture combines a healing form that has been validated by thousands of years of practice with a modern, clean and spa-like environment to provide guests with a peaceful sanctuary that they can make part of their regular routine. Modern Acupuncture offers an enhanced experience that utilizes needle therapy on nodes to increase blood flow, but unlike traditional acupuncture, does not require the removal of any clothing to access full-body health.
“Acupuncture has had a huge positive impact on our families life,” said Lance O’Pry, Modern Acupuncture franchisee and owner of the River Oaks location. “As my wife and I were trying to start a family, we had infertility challenges. With In Vitro being our last option, her doctors recommended acupuncture. Once she began her acupuncture sessions, we became pregnant with our second child, and now we have two healthy, beautiful children. We are still so amazed at the effectiveness of this alternative medicine. Our goal is to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to our community to positively change lives like it did for my wife and I.”
O’Pry has an extensive 13 year background in the health and wellness franchise industry. He has helped grow several national franchise concepts including Massage Envy as one of the regional developers for Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth. Additionally, O’Pry and his wife are active members of their community, supporting various local organizations. Lance has served on the Board of Children’s Fund as well as several committees for CanCare, an organization supporting cancer patients and caregivers.
Upon entering Modern Acupuncture, guests are greeted by simplistic yet contemporary decor with calming colors and natural wood elements, sending them into an instant state of tranquility. After a customized consultation with a Modern Acupuncture Zen Advisor, guests are taken back to the Zen Den, a relaxing retreat outfitted with soundproof insulation, lounge-style recliners, calming sounds and cool earthtones, ensuring a multi-sensory experience while essential or cosmetic acupuncture services are delivered. Guests leave with a customized treatment plan and a complimentary handcrafted organic tea blend.
A visit to Modern Acupuncture feels like a relaxing retreat, where guests can unwind and possibly even fall asleep, zoning out to peaceful music all while experiencing the healing and/or cosmetic benefits of acupuncture. Sessions are typically 30 minutes or less, and walk-ins are welcome.
Acupuncture is administered by acupuncturists who have been certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®) after completing a three-year master’s degree from an accredited school. They are further trained in the specific method used at Modern Acupuncture by Robert Doane, EAMP, L.AC., DIPL., C.H., co-founder at Modern Acupuncture and world-renowned acupuncturist and educator.
Modern Acupuncture offers affordable memberships encouraging guests to add acupuncture to their regular health and wellness routines. The “Pathway Plan” for traditional acupuncture is $69 per month and includes two acupuncture sessions, preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $20. The “Pathway Plan” for cosmetic acupuncture is $89 per month and includes two cosmetic acupuncture sessions (which also includes traditional acupuncture), preferred scheduling and additional visits are only $30.
