“The power, elegance, and simplicity of this medicine continue to inform and amaze me.” –
Faith Russler, L.Ac.
When Faith first experienced acupuncture in 1987, she realized she had found something extremely special. Chinese medicine encompasses the whole of us – our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual natures. This ancient healing system offers so many gifts for us in our modern world.
Faith’s ability to attend to and address each of these facets of Chinese medicine is at the core of her treatments. Through careful inquiry – just getting to know someone – and using the tools of this modality, it is possible to access the body’s own wisdom to enable healing.
Faith works with people who come in with a wide range of concerns, including gastrointestinal and digestive issues, pain, sleep issues, allergies, immune system support, depression, anxiety, and stress relief. To help clients find a more balanced and centered life, Faith’s practice encompasses overall healing as well as focused attention on specific areas of health. In addition to using acupuncture needles, she often utilizes acupressure, meditation and breathing practices, Eastern massage techniques, and several other forms of bodywork.
Faith grew up in Southern California. She has also lived in Northern California and the Mid-Atlantic area and has lived in Atlanta for over 30 years. In her personal life, Faith practices chant, meditation, and yoga. Other interests include singing, dancing, hiking, community, being socially responsible, a commitment to the environment, and living in sync with nature and the seasons.

Faith is more than an acupuncturist; she is a truly gifted healer. I sought her out with physical issues following surgery when nothing else was helping me heal. She put me at ease immediately – not an easy task given my huge and lifelong aversion to needles. She is a gentle soul – kind and highly intuitive. She is capable of tough love but only if invited. As a result of her treatment and wisdom, I have learned to take better care of my body, quiet my mind, listen to myself, and trust what I hear. Her knowledge of Chinese Medicine and competence applying it has offered me an alternate way to heal. I only wish I had visited her before surgery. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking to feel better in body and spirit. – CB, Brookhaven
I have had the good fortune to be treated by Faith Russler over the years, and each time we meet for treatment, it is rewarding. She takes the time to check in with me, understanding that my outer life impacts my physical health and energies. I find my treatments with Faith are a time to still the mind, reflect, and heal. The days I spend time with Faith become, with her expertise and caring manner, days that are more focused, relaxed, and balanced. – DC, Santa Fe
Faith Russler’s acupuncture treatments have helped me lower my blood pressure and have given me relief from a chronically stiff and painful shoulder. Faith is also an excellent lifestyle counselor and motivator. – JP, Peachtree City
Very simply – acupuncture has changed my life. After suffering from allergies and asthma my entire life, acupuncture has provided relief from my year-round sniffling and sneezing to the point that I no longer use my prescriptions. When I feel a flare-up coming on, I get an acupuncture treatment with Faith and feel better immediately. It’s also helped me with joint pain and various other ailments. I’ve come to rely on acupuncture as my first line of defense when my body feels dis-eased. I can’t recommend her enough! – CH, Decatur
