Treatment Approach
As an Acupuncturist, Meghan is kind, caring and gentle. She believes that the body has the power to heal and Acupuncture is the catalyst that allows healing to take place.

Acupuncture isn’t a one treatment fits all kind of thing. Meghan will tailor a treatment plan just for you based on your needs and overall health, and will adjust that treatment plan along the way as needed. There are many many acupuncture points to choose from and an art to choosing the right point at the right time for the right patient. Acupuncture is pretty neat, surprisingly relaxing, and totally not as scary as it sounds. Please don't worry the needles are tiny, and they might just change your life 🖤
