What to expect at

Affinity Acupuncture


We discuss your condition and symptoms and evaluate your presentation.  Then present you with a treatment course. 

Treatment Course

The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you’ve had it and other factors.

Quick & Painless

Acupuncture is quick and painless; you’re in and out of the office within 20-60 minutes.


Most patients experience reduced symptoms, even in conditions that have been present for years.

– Cynthia

William Alexander

After raising her family, Cynthia decided it was time to re-enter the workforce with a job focused on helping clients live their best lives.

She strives to give each patient the best care and highest possible customer service. 

Business Manager

– Cassie


Cassie is William’s partner in life and business. They met in Chicago while he completed his Master’s of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and he quickly proved to her the efficacy of acupuncture. With her background in business and his as a practitioner, they opened Affinity Acupuncture shortly after marrying and moving to Nashville. Cassie had to reduce her hours in the office when their twins were born, but some of our first clients still remember Cassie and the twins helping out back in the early days. She still comes to the office on occasion (sometimes still with the twins), but primarily works from home.


– Teresa


A Tennessee native, Teresa has been a part of the Affinity Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine team since our inception in 2012.  Her exceptional skills in tech, administration, and countless other areas demonstrate that she is a true Jill-of-all-trades and integral part of the team.  When she is not surpassing all expectations behind the scenes, you might find her hiding out on a beach in Mexico or other tropic wonder.
