I have been a patient of Melanie Severo for more than two years. Three years ago, I became very concerned that I had had four bouts of bronchitis over a relatively brief period.

“Melanie is a wonderful blend of East and West. She brings the knowledge and care of her nursing background to the ancient technique of acupuncture. It’s a rare yet needed synthesis, ensuring that your care is thorough and holistic in the truest sense of the word. ” -K.S.
“Melanie is a true healer and professional. She gives me relief physically and mentally. My life is is much better because of her acupuncture therapy. ”
“Melanie is very thorough. I appreciate the care she takes to make sure she really understands what is ailing you. ”
Melanie is thoughtful, effective and caring. She says that she’s passionate about your health and well-being and she really does mean it. I quite liked that Melanie has a Western background (she’s as a registered nurse) while also being able to explain all of the non-Western components of acupuncture. Her new office is well located and very pleasant. Highly recommended. JT

Migraine headaches are a bit of mystery to the medical world. This ailment tends to be poorly understood and frequently undiagnosed and under-treated. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, this neurological disease affects nearly 39 million Americans. Migraines are characterized by severe, throbbing pain usually found on only one side of the head. Migraine headaches can also be accompanied by visual disturbances, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. These types of headaches can last from four hours to several days. Because modern medicine doesn’t completely understand this neurological phenomenon, the typical treatment is somewhat hit or miss. continue reading
