#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “healing”, “point”, “wholistic” and “eastern”, you can see that while these words can be related to acupuncture, they also suggest that you can expect restorative and natural pain relief from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.
If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.
Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of names:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great acupuncture business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid asking for feedback from family and friends since they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they may not be your ideal customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and does it represent your business the way you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name conveys an acupuncture clinic that treats the whole body, not just symptoms.
This name conveys a an acupuncture clinic that makes acupuncture sound non-threatening.
This name conveys an alternative healing centre that deals with eastern medicine and herbs.
This name conveys a body wellness clinic that aims to restore the body to health and happiness.
#4) Check if it’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great acupuncture business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state. Also be sure to search if the name is available for Trademark and Domain Name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful acupuncture businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
The Yinova Centre achieves an Eastern meets modern feel with the combination of “yin” and “ova.” Yin is the Chinese principle of the universe and ova refers to egg cell. The Yinova Centre practices acupuncture and other Eastern Medicine philosophies and it specializes in treating fertility issues.
Olo Acupuncture achieves a friendly yet mysterious vibe with their name. Although it is unknown what “Olo” is exactly in this case, it is a Finnish word meaning “feeling.” This alternative medicine clinic practices acupuncture along with other eastern forms of medicine, all with the intention of helping you feel healthy and well.
Garden Acupuncture conveys a relaxing and wholesome vibe with their name. By adding “garden” to the name of this acupuncture clinic, it opens up the customer’s mind to the idea of alternative medicine and acupuncture. Garden Acupuncture’s goal is to restore balance to the mind, body, and environment.
1. Do a competitor analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future. Knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitor’s business name works for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on naming your business, not describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused acupuncture terms like . A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real acupuncture business named “Eastern Healing Centre”.
Literally, this name conveys a centre that believes in Eastern healing. Eastern medicine doesn’t focus on treating everything with medicine. Instead, the practitioners in this clinic use acupuncture, massage and other non-medicinal treatments to help the body heal.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting inside your customer’s mind, a task easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks so they give extra thought to your business among the wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable are:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Transformative Acupuncture, Kindness & Care)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Magic Point Acupuncture – magic can refer to sleight of hand, or in this case, body healing done by needle insertion)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable acupuncture business names could be:
- Nuvane Acupuncture
- Alomos Eastern Healing
- Nurilo Alternative Healing
You can find a full list of brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Easy Acupuncture but finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Ecupuncture, Easyture, or Easye.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
