I Help Every Day People Achieve Their Best Health
I help people like you find the best solutions and tools for achieving a balanced and healthy life by listening to your needs and developing a customized Acupuncture or Chinese herbal treatment plan that works best for YOUR lifestyle.
I've been where you are on my own healing journey, did the work, and came out the other side. I'm not going to lie, it was hard, and confusing, and I didn't know what to make of all the information. In the process, I've found countless healing tools and strategies that work, experienced different types of treatments, and completed trainings--all with the intention to help make the healing process easier for anyone else struggling to find their way towards balanced health. Let me help you make it a little easier.
In-office treatments allow me to help you on the deepest level. I use Acupuncture and other Chinese medicine modalities such as moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, massage, herbal medicine and more to gently balance the spirit, mind, and body. Together we can address mental, emotional, and physical ailments you may be experiencing.
For those who want to focus on healthy, graceful aging, I offer acupuncture facials and microneedling treatments to refresh your skin. Both treatments begin with a facial cleansing and red or blue light therapy, then I will move forward with either the microneedling procedure or facial acupuncture.
I am launching Reiki Level I & II training courses and herbal liniment workshops to help empower you as your own healer. Develop a strong understanding and foundation for these practices so that you can begin to incorporate them in your life. I will offer these through Teachable, in addition to some in-person training.
What Patients Say
Mili is an amazing acupuncturist! I feel so fortunate that I was introduced to her.
She has been critical in helping me find balance mentally, emotionally, and physically as I've gone through fertility treatments.
Her treatments are relaxing. Her office and energy are calming. I truly look forward to each treatment, knowing I'll feel healthier and calmer when I leave the office.
I highly recommend Mili!
Heather F. ● Yelp Review
I made an appointment with Mili as a recommendation from a friend for my neck and shoulder pain. My session with her was more than I expected. I get a little nervous when it comes to acupuncture, and Mili made me feel very comfortable. She is gentle with the acupuncture needles which I am grateful for! Her space is very inviting and relaxing. My neck and upper back pain feels so much better. Mili is a true healer. Will definitely be recommending to my friends and family!
