"Honestly I don’t know how I would have made it through the pregnancy without Andrew's care! He was so much more helpful than my OB and all caregivers combined. He changed my life by helping with the migraines. I was so discouraged after years of medication and doctors ... I honestly never imagined I would be able to come off medicine, or have the quality of life I now experience!"

Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, single-use, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. These points are organized along pathways called channels.  Stimulation of these points restores the healthy flow of information along the channels between the various systems that regulate health and balance in the body.  Acupuncture sessions often include massage, herbs and other modalities.  read more here

I have suffered from chronic upper back and shoulder pain for years. As a result of this severe discomfort, I walked bent forwards with head down.

With a blend of acupuncture and massage techniques, Marielle has been able to correct my posture and has eliminated most of the pain. My range of mobility is now near-normal. My wife said that I had grown 2 inches in height!

This was a caring but deep, intense and thoroughly professional treatment, thank you Marielle!

How we work 


What to expect

Scheduling:  Please click the "book now" button at the top of the page to make and manage your appointments.  If you have any issues, if you would like our help booking your appointment, or if you have any questions at all before scheduling, please email us at  Once you have scheduled you'll receive an email invitation to create a password for your online portal where you can fill out your medical and consent forms  (no need to print anything and no forms to fill out when you get here!).  Please use a computer with a normal browser, not a "smart-device", to fill your forms out before your visit.


First Visit:  ​(90 minutes)  We will show you around our clinic and go through some pre-treatment screening procedures and introductions.  At this point we will also answer any questions you might have.  We will then discuss your symptoms in detail and talk through your goals.  We will take a thorough health history and ask a lot of questions that are designed to pinpoint the root of your symptoms.  We will explain what is going on, and what we can do about it.  We will then create your treatment plan, explain it fully to you and finally we'll get to the treatment itself!  This treatment will be designed specifically to address the situation we have discussed and may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, guasha, moxibustion, cupping therapy or massage/bodywork therapy.  There is no additional cost for the extra things we do!

Follow-up Visits:  (60 minutes)  You can book follow-ups online through the portal or by emailing us.  At each follow-up we will briefly check in to see how you are doing, then we'll get right to work.  Adjustments to the treatment plan will be made each time we see you so that you progress as much as possible at each visit.  

Payment:  Please click here for pricing.  This price includes EVERYTHING that we do in your session.  There is an additional cost if you are going to purchase herbs, tinctures or other products.  We accept payment at time of service and are not "in-network" with any insurance providers.  If you have out-of-network acupuncture coverage and would like to get reimbursed for your treatments we can supply you with a "superbill" upon email request.  You can submit these forms to your insurance and get reimbursed directly depending on your plan.  Many of our patients get fully or partially reimbursed for their treatments!

"Andrew is a very special practitioner and person.  Throughout my treatment, he was the stable, empathetic and confident presence I needed to get me through a very tough period as I struggled with fertility issues.  His ability to listen and form a holistic approach to my treatment meant I not only felt better physically, but more importantly I felt mentally prepared to tackle whatever challenge lay in my way."
