Hello Everyone!

Everyday I work with patients treating their pain. When I meet people they always ask what I do and what acupuncture and dry needling is helpful for. The what I do question is easy, I use acupuncture, dry needling and soft tissue manipulation (massage therapy) to treat painful conditions like low back and neck pain. I feel that the WHY of what I do is really a more important question I treat people for one very simple reason, I truly enjoy helping people get out of pain and improve their functional movement. Here at ABR Acupuncture my goal is to get my patients back to their activities and life as quickly as possible. I use acupuncture, dry needling and soft tissue manipulation because I feel that these treatment methods along with some corrective exercises are the most effective tools for treating movement dysfunction and pain.


I came into Rob’s office with severe tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow to the point where I couldn’t use my arm for normal day to day anything. Within a few weeks I was able to regain full function and range of motion and gradually became completely pain-free. I was very skeptical about acupuncture but Rob works wonders, highly recommended!!

Rob Balkind is Top-Tier when it comes to dry needling. I was skeptical and scared of the process seeing i had never done dry needling before but once i walked in the office, the atmosphere of the office and the communication from Rob put me at ease and i was even able to pick my own music to hear during my appointment! I would highly recommend first timers here!

I have always come away from each session more informed and so pleased with my outcome. There is no one I would rather see than Rob, and I highly recommend ABR Acupuncture!!!!
