Hi, I'm Melissa. 

I love acupuncture. I love its colorful history, I love that it encourages a stronger relationship with nature, and I love that it encourages our bodies to heal themselves.


Most of all, I love that acupuncture is a medium for me to participate in the lives of so many amazing people. It allows me to help people do the things that they love.  

Acupuncture is my way of restoring and spreading joy. It is my small part in reuniting your best friend with his guitar and helping your sister dance to greatness. I understand the importance of doing something you love. When people can do what they love without pain or physical limitations, they are happy. That happiness is contagious, and the world can be a better place because of it.  


I look forward to learning about your passions, your hobbies, and your dreams - and helping you achieve them, one acupuncture needle at a time!
