At 18 years old within weeks of starting her first year of college, Katie was diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease. Dizziness, vertigo, nausea and a deafening ringing in her right ear were constants in her daily life. Throughout the years, she had undergone two inner ear surgeries and was taking an arsenal of medications, none of which truly helped. It wasn’t until she found acupuncture in her early 30s that all her symptoms subsided, most of which disappeared completely, and she was able to start living again. Within three months acupuncture changed her life. As an acupuncturist, she intends to pay it forward and help those who suffer all kinds of medical conditions.

Katie graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture, the first acupuncture school in the United States and one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the field. She’s also received advanced training under Master Tom Tam and famed Chinese herbalist B.J Wang. Katie believes in integrating both Eastern and Western approaches, ensuring a proper diet and supplementation are part of her acupuncture treatment plans. In addition to needles, she oftentimes incorporates supplementary modalities including cold infrared laser, gwa sha, tui na massage, moxibustion, cupping and electro-stimulation.

Michael Young, an Army veteran holding a Bachelor of Science degree with a pre-med emphasis, transitioned to a career in acupuncture in 2009. His journey into traditional Chinese medicine began in 2008, following four years of education subsequent to his work in DNA research. With a focus on chronic and acute pain management, Michael employs acupuncture as his primary modality. Additionally,

he offers cupping for deep muscle pain and specializes in traditional Chinese herbalism to complement treatments for various medical conditions. Michael integrates auricular acupuncture with electrical stimulation into his practice. Noteworthy is his expertise in battlefield acupuncture.


Emphasizing a collaborative approach, Michael values the active involvement of his clients in their treatment, and he advocates harnessing the body's energy to facilitate healing.
