Dr. Tranter’s practice includes acupuncture, acupressure and specialized treatment for chronic muscle and joint pain. He loves to work with patients of all ages, and has been helping Texans achieve better health for 33 years.


“I started seeing Dr. Tranter for acupuncture a few years ago and my health has improved immensely. I was skeptical at first because I’ve tried holistic medicine before and the practitioners all seemed to be the type that think hugs cure everything and that not showering is a good thing. Dr Tranter explains everything as he is doing it and consistently researches new techniques to utilize in his practice. Additionally, he does not talk about auras, chakras, spirit worlds or make you choke from incense. In fact after your appointment he gives you candy.”

– Sally D.

After 22 years of a busy chiropractic practice and following a successful personal experience with acupuncture, Dr. Tranter returned to school for his initial certification in clinical acupuncture in 2005 at the Texas Chiropractic College. A few years later Dr. Tranter was awarded a Fellowship with the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture (FIAMA).

He is licensed to use acupuncture through the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners and uses standard medical diagnosis. His gentle treatments are based on current research recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO).

Dr. Tranter is a perpetual student, regularly studying and attending continuing education classes to help as many people as he can.

A message  from Dr. Tranter:

I want to be your acupuncture doctor… but only if I can help you!

During your initial visit, we will sit down and discuss your condition and you will receive a thorough evaluation to determine if you are likely to benefit from care. If so, you will receive recommendations for your fastest path to better health. My friendly staff will then explain the estimated cost of your care. If you wish to begin care you will be scheduled for your recommended treatments, and always treated with the utmost safety, comfort and fewest number of visits possible. 

If at any point it becomes apparent that you cannot benefit from care, I will tell you and can make a recommendation to a practitioner who may help. 

I have lots of tools to help: acupressure, acupuncture, muscle and joint techniques, chiropractic care, sports injury experience, stress reduction techniques and common sense health recommendations. For patients who choose acupuncture needles, only quality, sterile, single-use needles are used. 

Lastly, I want you to not only feel better but to GET AND STAY WELL. As an option for maximum wellness after you are feeling better I may recommend occasional, periodic visits that help keep you entire body in balance and working at 100% efficiency.
