She also has a special interest in pediatrics and has experience in treating infants through adolescents, for various acute and chronic conditions using both acupressure and insertive techniques.
Michelle found her way to acupuncture initially as a patient. She sought out alternative therapies to help with insomnia, fatigue, and headaches when conventional medicine provided little relief. Through a combination of acupuncture, herbal therapy and lifestyle changes she was able to reduce and then fully resolve her symptoms. When the time came for a change in her professional life, acupuncture was again the solution.
Michelle received her BA in Psychology from Castleton University and her Master’s in Acupuncture from New England School of Acupuncture. She licensed in Massachusetts and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
