I am an Acupuncture Physician, an investigator of the curious cases that find their way in my door. I am also Primal Health Coach who loves to guide you to your best possible state of health. I assist patients in developing and maintaining their health using various modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Natural approaches within TCM are useful in addressing chronic and acute pain. TCM offers natural aid in coping with health issues such as: migraines, depression, gynecological issues, and ability to cope with stress. TCM and health coaching integrate well with primary care for establishing and maintaining health goals, and shoring up gaps in care in our current medical model. I help put you back in charge of your health and attain lasting results.
I provide both acupuncture and other non-needle therapies: Acupressure, Cupping, Herbal Therapy, Moxibustion, and Primal Health Coaching services. After we meet for a consult and go over your health history, I create a treatment plan specifically tailored for your needs. Your treatment plan will let you know how often you should come for treatment and what things you may be able to do on your own to improve how you feel.
I trained at Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, and The Academy for Five Element Acupuncture now located in Gainesville, FL. They are two very different approaches to acupuncture, which are both equally valid and useful in clinic. Each lens provides a fresh treatment perspective and allows flexibility in creating a treatment plan that works specifically for you. While attending Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine I earned the Intern of the Year award upon graduation in 2008 for stellar clinical skills.
I continue to receive training and CEUs related to herbology, tongue diagnosis, acupuncture, and TCM food therapy. In the journey to help patients take ownership of their health, I became interested in the Primal Health Coach Institute. I decided to embark on the course and became a certified Primal Health Coach in 2017. I often use health coaching strategies in conjunction with acupuncture and herbs for patients with Type 2 diabetes, chronic pain and inflammation, auto-immune conditions, and those desiring permanent weight loss solutions. I seek to help put you back in charge of your health and graduate you from clinic.
Testimonials & Acupuncture Love Letters
Michelle, Thank you so much for all you did for me and my family. Every time I look at my beautiful daughter's face I know that you and the acupuncture you provided me before and after pregnancy was key to her being in this world. Dr Fu Di was right. You are a truly gifted person. I'm so grateful our paths crossed!
Michelle is a true healer! Her positive, caring and calming personality comes through her hands. Thank you for spending time following up after treatments.
Had my first ever acupuncture session yesterday with Michelle and I didn't know what to expect going in but once we started I felt comfortable, relaxed and informed every step of the way.
24 hours later of doing acupoints focused on my chronic cough I fee like I can take deep breaths, and noticed a clearing up of my sinuses. I happily now have a reoccurring Weekly appointment, and cannot wait for next week!
If you've never experienced acupuncture but always wanted to try it, I highly recommend Michelle!
She just always knows what to do..... what a loving and caring woman.... thank you for all you do.. xoxo
Michelle is exceptional! Migraines, stress, back pain? She can pinpoint where your pain is, identify other issues and fix it...Acupuncture, cupping, herbal advice ...the best! From morning, noon and night sickness, to every random pregnancy symptom and allergies and colds...she is incredible at helping reduce the symptoms or make them disappear completely! Thank you so much...
