Active Life is an award-winning acupuncture and Chinese medicine specialty clinic in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  Voted best acupuncture in Northwest Arkansas for the past four years, best weight loss center for the past two years, and best alternative therapies this year, we are dedicated to helping you recover from illness and restore optimal health so you can focus on what you love. We help our patients do just that with expert training in a wide range of holistic traditional Eastern therapies, including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, moxibustion, Tuina (medical massage), cupping (aka fire-cupping), and Longevity Movement (Dr. Hayden's custom rehabilitation instruction).

Providing hundreds of patients with quality care and treatment for varying ailments, illnesses, injuries, and general wellness our practitioner, Dr. Hayden Henningsen, L. Ac., DACM, CYT, has over 4000 hours of training in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and has 12 years of clinical experience.


In addition to the therapies used during your visit, you can expect to take home some assignments, such as movement and stretching, breathing exercises, and dietary advice. This helps to make the most out of and prolong the effects of treatment. Most patients are recommended a monthly subscription/treatment plan, including the amount of treatments, how often you should come in, and potentially Chinese herbs prescribed from out full Chinese herbal pharmacy with over 500 individual Chinese herbs and formulas. Treatment plans will depend on what you are being seen for, how long you have experienced the symptoms or illness, and what you are wanting to get out of treatment.

In the past year, Active Life has moved to a larger, contemporary facility with many more wellness services to create one of the largest, most comprehensive integrative medicine and functional medicine clinics in the regions. Our new services include massage therapy with William Hall, MMT (formerly Good Will Massage), mixed-infrared sauna, personal training with Jodi Stengle, ACE certified personal trainer, nutritional therapy with Alexis Power, holistic veterinary services with Dr. Beverly Chevallier, and counseling with Active Life co-owner Rachel Henningsen.

We treat patients all over Northwest Arkansas and various other areas in the United States, including Fayetteville, Springdale, Bentonville, Rogers, Bella Vista, Siloam Springs, Farmington, Tontitown, Elkins, Prairie Grove, Goshen, Huntsville, Fort Smith, Alma, Little Rock, Conway, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, California, and more.

Outside of treatment, Active Life provides patients with many resources for increasing their health and ridding themselves of pain and illness. These resources include a wide variety of wellness retail items including therapeutic tools, medical grade essential oils, vitamins and mineral supplements, and more.
