Acupuncture with Monica Frequently Asked Questions

Is acupuncture right for me?

Do you suffer from anxiety, overwhelm, or ongoing health concerns that just won’t get better? Do you want to feel good again but feel stuck around where to start? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might want to try acupuncture!


What can acupuncture help me with?

Most people think of acupuncture as a form of pain management, but I specialize in working with mental-emotional health concerns and a variety of ongoing health issues that are either chronic or not getting better. My specialties include: anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, autoimmune conditions, fatigue & burnout, migraines, women’s health.


What makes Acupuncture with Monica unique?

The foundation of my approach arises from my own experiences with having lots of health care starting in my teens. I often felt frustrated and distraught by how many of the healthcare professionals I were seeing seemed not to be hearing me, and were giving me recommendations that I knew I either could not or would not follow. I did the best I could, but not feeling heard took a toll on my overall health. I felt like I was sacrificing my mental and emotional wellbeing in order to get my body back in alignment.


It wasn’t until I started seeing an acupuncturist in 2004 that I felt completely cared for. The beauty of this medicine & the amazing results I’ve seen in my own life, including connecting with who I really am, feeling good again in my body mind & spirit, and also finding my purpose in life, inspired me to share this unique and caring medicine with others. Working from this foundation of deep listening and individualized care, I help each person I work with identify small and sustainable steps that will help them get to where they want to be. 


How do I decide where to go for acupuncture?
