Acupuncture essex junction vt 1Welcome to Sun & Moon Acupuncture

Welcome! My name is Melanie and I am the owner of Sun & Moon Acupuncture. I am an acupuncturist and I also have over 25 years of experience as a Registered Nurse. I am uniquely positioned to help patients integrate the health care they receive from more mainstream providers with the expertise I bring in eastern medical traditions. 

Treatment plans include acupuncture as well as guidance on exercise, nutrition, meditation, stress management, and navigating the western health care system if needed.

I have 30 years of experience in health care, and I take a lot of time to listen to my patients and understand their current health challenges. I consider myself a guide as a patient navigates their way back to health, and I work in partnership with my patients to help them identify their health and wellness goals and create a path to reach those goals.

Acupuncture, with its focus on treating the whole person and the root of the problem (rather than just alleviating symptoms), empowers people to take control of their health and their lives.

I am committed to helping my patients achieve improved health through acupuncture treatments in an office setting where they are treated by me personally.
