Welcome to the clinical practice of Anne Cranston, EAMP, LAc, MAcOM.

I am pleased to offer quality natural medicine to Northeast Washington. In my practice, I take each individual's health into account, treating the physical, mental and emotional. My goal is to optimize the well being of my patients via natural means so that they may lead fuller and more joyful lives. Colville Acupuncture effectively utilizes the modalities of East Asian Medicine (also called Traditional Chinese Medicine). In addition to acupuncture, I am skilled in Chinese Herbal medicine, Chinese medical massage (Tuina), and advice regarding changes in lifestyle, diet, sleep, and exercise.

Colville Acupuncture treats the whole family: children, teenagers, adults, and seniors, and strives to be inclusive of our diverse community. We offer a compassionate, non-discriminatory healing space open to all.

You can learn more about the modalities I use in the Treatment Methods section. You can download forms and read about what to expect during visits in the Patient Information section. 

Come visit the beautiful space I share with amazing massage therapist April Moon, and see for yourself how acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can work for you. I welcome all of your questions and offer free 20 minute consultations to give you the opportunity to meet me and learn more. Email me or call 509-675-0062 for more information. You can also book an appointment online
