About Us

Our Story

Founded in 2019 by long time area acupuncturist Sarah Prater, Maryville Acupuncture was created to give more East Tennesseans holistic, integrated medicine options.

 

Prater has more than a decade of experience in acupuncture, devoting her career to supporting couples struggling with infertility at her Knoxville practice, The Tennessee Center for Reproductive Acupuncture.

 

At Maryville Acupuncture, Prater and her staff will strive to work integratively to support the achievement of your health goals, and ensure you have access to the best possible care while we work closely with your team of doctors.

 

We’re honored to bring acupuncture to our neighbors here in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, and look forward to being a part of your health care team!
