"I've been singing Dr. Mel's praises to everyone I know who brings up fertility support, stress, healing, etc. Her acupuncture plan for me and services were instrumental in my journey to baby number two. My husband and I will be forever grateful."

“When I met Dr. Mel back in 2012, I knew I'd met a special soul, the kind of person you can trust implicitly with your physical and spiritual health. A couple years later when my digestion became very erratic I knew exactly who I needed to go for treatment. When I started treatment my gut was unpredictable, sometimes flaring into explosive diarrhea, and other times bloating with terrible gas. Dr. Mel treated my body and soul, recommending dietary changes and providing emotional support as I began the process of reorganizing how I ate and analyzing what my triggers were. Between making different food choices and the relief her acupuncture treatments provided, my gut healed to the point where I can eat anything (within reason) without risking a digestive incident. I have seen her every week for more than a year and a half because her treatments go far beyond the urgent reason I sought her out. From the weekly misalignments of schlepping around NYC, to the emotional healing I need from my past, to the spiritual growth I am seeking, Dr. Mel is the midwife to my most healthful self."
