Experience acupuncture for relief of chronic or acute symptoms,
greater health and well-being
Acupuncture is for the veteran seeking help with a smoother adjustment back to civilian life or for chronic, on-going conditions. And, it is available in the Ann Arbor community. Acupuncture is said "to preserve your good health… restore you to better health and promote good on-going health." The testimonials at the bottom of this page give you a sample of the ways acupuncture can help you. Also see www.VA.gov.
How can acupuncture treat the returning or seasoned veteran?
Acupuncture can help
- Strengthen and calm the agitated nervous system
- Support psychotherapy for trauma, PTSD, and grief
- Reduce anxiety and depression
- Reduce low back, neck, and other muscular discomfort
With the approval of your doctor, acupuncture often improves a veteran’s condition so they need fewer or milder painkillers and other medications.
How can I begin to receive the benefits of Acupuncture?
First and foremost the veteran needs to request acupuncture through his or her primary VA doctor.
The VA physician may recommend acupuncture treatment be performed by a certified acupuncturist in the Ann Arbor area.
As of June 2010, Rosanne Emanuele has been working with veterans referred by the Ann Arbor Veteran's Hospital. Rosanne is insurance authorized to treat veterans, their family members and survivors through the VA Veterans Choice and PC3 programs.
Ask your VA doctor for a referral

The Emanuele Acupuncture Center is easily accessible with free and convenient parking and just 3.5 miles from the Ann Arbor VA Hospital. The acupuncture center is also located on the AATA bus line # 4 for added convenience.
Testimonials about Rosanne Emanuele and Acupuncture
At the third treatment for facial numbness
" The numbness is not as noticeable anymore.
I know its connected to the bone in my neck. I used to feel like my eyes didn't line up when I'd look at stuff, but I feel like my glasses are lined up now and not slanted on my face like before. Usually I have really bad fatigue & even tho I still feel tired, I'm less exhausted. I know this acupuncture is helping. When I leave ( the clinic) I seriously feel , I dunno, refreshed somehow!
I'm glad I get to come here."
My joints ?? when I first get out of bed ( clicks his fingers) I can hit the floor running. Literally ! And, I slept 6 continuous hours! That's unheard of ( before his acupuncture treatment.)
I trust what you are doing here. I can feel the difference when I come, and when I leave . What happens is (that ) I come with stiffness in my shoulders, neck, back and knees and with headaches. All I do is tell you what bothers me and while I don't know why or what you are doing , you can isolate what 's bothering me. I feel better ! I have more energy too. I can do things that I used to avoid.
My V.A. MD s recommended P.T. but the process was too painful. They (the physical therapy group) sent me back to the doctors. I said nothing seems to help more than acupuncture. I'll stick with that.
"Yesterday was my best day in 6 weeks! So I took the whole day off and just enjoyed it.”
Treatment # 3 for chronic low back pain.
“I feel good today, I mean really good!”
M. S. gave up the use of a cane in three
treatments. His arms and legs, toes and fingers are in good conscious control, no headaches,
nor stiff neck and he has a good positive attitude. He is a former stroke patient who is improving and looking forward in life.
I've been feeling so much better its amazing! It just keeps loosening up and the low back pain is nearly gone. Even from early in the AM and throughout the day I can feel the difference and it keeps improving as the day goes by. There's a bit of pain left but its not stopping me from what I want to do. I'm so glad to be here for the second time this week. I feel like I could resume regular activity but wanted to wait for this second treatment and, such a huge difference when you finally get a good night's sleep !
Vet with a happy low back
“My wife is happy too, [since] the anxiety is way down!”
P.S. is now calm and well composed, his back pain under control. His treatment is supporting the effects of a gun shot
wound in Viet Nam. He no longer has chronic headaches.
J. D. came for acupuncture treatment with a years-long, 24 hour-a-day groin pain from a parachute accident.
Combined acupuncture and prolotherapy enables him to sleep nightly and back in
his bed. His body is restoring with rejuvenating rest and the inner thigh, groin and low back
are nearly pain free. He’s living a virtually normal life.
