Meet Our Acupuncturists, L.Ac.

Dr. Nicholas La Puma Jr, OMD #1048Dr. Nicholas La Puma Jr, OMD #1048

Nicholas attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA focusing on sports medicine and spinal cord injury. His interest in traditional Chinese medicine was sparked after being diagnosed with Lyme disease and receiving acupuncture and herbal therapies for management of pain. Nicholas enjoys the practice of Chinese medicine because it is a gentle, natural approach to healthcare that has the ability to deliver information to specific body tissues that are hard to reach with other modalities. Nicholas has joined the Modern Acupuncture team in Reno because he is excited about bringing affordable, accessible, approachable acupuncture to the community, and increasing awareness of Chinese medicine overall. In his leisure time, Nicholas likes to climb and explore the canyons throughout Nevada, Utah and Arizona. He draws (or attempts to draw) the birds he sees while out exploring. Nicholas is a voracious reader who rereads books he loves and he also enjoys punk rock, running and has a decent meditation practice.

Dr. Pamela Murphy #2035Dr. Pamela Murphy #2035

Pam received her Masters of Acupuncture from the University of Bridgeport and a Master of Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University in Los Angeles, CA.  She is licensed in both Nevada and California and has traveled the world educating and treating passengers and crew alike on cruise ships.  Pam enjoys practicing Chinese medicine because there is no better feeling than relieving someone's pain and helping to calm the nervous system enabling the body to heal and repair itself in so many ways.  She specialized in complex chronic pain syndromes, women's health and fertility and facial rejuvenation. In her free time Dr Pam enjoys hiking, dance, practicing yoga and plans to do much more bungee jumping! 


Happy and excited to be back on land, close to family and practicing at Modern Acupuncture!

I tried acupuncture for the first time a few months ago, eager to find a more natural way to manage/cure/treat my sever anxiety. I wanted to try an outlet that would allow me to avoid taking meds. Since starting I’ve seen a pretty significant change, and improvements in the frequency and severity of my anxiety. I enjoy going to my treatments thanks to the relaxing/calming atmosphere of the facility, and the very friendly, professional and accommodating environment the staff also provides. Dr. La Puma also seems very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional himself, and I’m so thankful to have found such a positive alternative medicine. Thank you Modern Acupuncture!!!

Rich B. (Sparks, NV) - 12/21/2019


I’m not one to leave reviews for companies, but I really need to share how acupuncture has improved my life. You see, I had a stroke in April of this year (2019). The stroke affected my brain function, my speech, and it completely paralyzed the left side of my body.... I had also suffered from frequent, and terrible migraine headaches. About a month into my recovery, a coworker of mine once again told me that I should try Acupuncture. “Go see Dr. Nick” she said. Even though I was still in a wheel chair at the time, I gave it shot. Being a sceptic, I thought, oh well I’m only out $70 bucks. Well, fast forward 6 months later, and I can honestly say that starting the acupuncture treatments was, and has been one of the best forms of therapy for me. Words can’t express the impact that acupuncture has had on my life. I’m convinced that the rate at which I’m recovering is in large part due to acupuncture. I’ve also not had a migraine or headache since I’ve started my acupuncture treatments. I’m so thankful for, and look forward to my weekly visits with Dr. Nick and his assistant Joanne. Thanks guys!!
