I specialize in healing.

For most of my life, I've been passionate about and a little obsessed with understanding how to be the best, most graciously empowered version of myself that I can be.  Along the way,

I've gained a wealth of skills and tools to help people heal. I love sharing what I've learned and helping my patients feel better, healthier, and more aware and empowered than before.

Shelley earned a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine with honors from Yo San University, the only acupuncture school in the country requiring extensive qi development studies.  She also studied and worked in major TCM Hospitals in Beijing, China.  She's licensed in California – the most rigourous of all state tests and also holds a license with the National Board of Acupuncture. She is currently faculty in the Qi Department at YSU teaching weekly qigong to graduate students.


I specialize in treating chronic stress and anxiety along with pain, digestive problems and women’s conditions. 

It is my experience that a healthy, well aligned body and mind free of tension, stress and toxicity allows for a healthy mood, an inspired outlook and a frequently magical life.  It is my joy to share my zest for health with anyone seeking and committed to an improved and more physically satisfying time here on this planet. Would you like to see what acupuncture can do for you?

In an effort to help heal ourselves, our minds, our bodies, and our planet, 1% of all my proceeds are donated to non-profits like the Nature Conservancy, to teachers working to raise human consciousness and end suffering like Byron Katie and Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka, and to groups working to maintain health care choice in America.
