Our Services

These services are used alone or in a combination that is tailored to your specific health care needs



Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, sterile, single use, needles in various places in your body to alleviate pain, increase range of motion, and improve the body's muscular, circulatory, nervous, lymphatic, digestive, reproductive, and respiratory systems. The acupuncture points are selected through empirical wisdom from Asian medicine's broad history, modern knowledge of Western sciences, and practical application from your practitioner.

Herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is the primary treatment method within traditional Asian medicine. We create individually tailored formulas that supports each patient's unique constitution while addressing their current chief complaints. Additionally, we offer supplements for patient's to support their daily health. All our herbal medicine and supplements are taken from the highest quality sources.


Cupping and Asian Bodywork

Rejuve Acupuncture offers cupping and Tuina, a form of traditional Chinese bodywork. Cupping is used on the back, arms, or legs to release the fascia. It does this by creating space between the skin and muscles, between the muscles, and to break any scar tissue or adhesions. Tui-Na utilizes the acupuncture points and meridians in its massage.

Clinical Nutrition

In addition to Acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements, and bodywork, we educate patient's on what specific foods are best for their constitution. We are able to determine a patient's constitution during a new patient acupuncture intake by identifying a comprehensive pattern of patient's signs and symptoms in a differential diagnosis.

I started seeing Alex for treatments regarding issues I was having with constant pain in my lower back, pain in my left arm,as well as digestive issues and high blood sugar.  After several treatments with Alex, my lower back pain is nonexistent and I am able to get back to all of my activities. My blood sugar is now at a good level and my arm pain is slowly decreasing. I will continue with Alex for wellness sessions even  once all of my issues are 100% better.  I have seen several acupuncturists  over the years but Alex is definitely my favorite, he is a good listener and passionate about his profession and helping you achieve the best level of health and well being.  He is very devoted and has excellent knowledge.

I was thankfully introduced to Alex about a year ago. He truly has the magic touch, I have been plagued with neck, upper back, lower back, and hip pain due exacerbated by my time in the army and car accidents times two!  From day one of being treated by Alex my chronic pain and migraines for over 14 years plus was immensely reduced.  I went from 3-4 migraines a week to one in over three weeks.  Not only does he have the best bedside manner, he definitely maps out your ailments and will treat them all! Alex will not disappoint if you are suffering from any injuries! Alex is who you want to see!  Thank you!

Alex Kim, L.Ac. is the new owner of Rejuve Acupuncture.  I've being seeing Alex in the Seattle area since December and was very sad to see his practice move out of town.  Des Moines, you're in for a treat!  Alex is hands down the best acupuncturist I've ever seen.  I've never felt the benefits of acupuncture until now and was on the fence of ever trying it again. He came highly recommended so I gave it another whirl.   For my first appointment Alex was focused on listening to me and my history of pain.  He took my situation very seriously and made it a mission to see results right away even after the first session.  Alex custom tailored his therapy for my specific needs.  He is polite, respectful and upbeat.  I can't recommend Alex enough.  So, yes, I'll be driving the 30 miles for my next acupuncture appointments!

I visited Alex for acupuncture with a focus on freezing my eggs.I was able to retrieve 46 eggs (of that 33 matured and were frozen). I've been informed by many people that this is a very high amount of eggs retrieved and a bountiful amount matured. I believe my egg retrieval and fertility success was a result of acupuncture from Alex. Additionally, I visited Alex for acupuncture to treat my ongoing anxiety which I found more beneficial than other holistic or pharmaceutical treatments. Thank you Alex for being an exceptional acupuncturist.
