Michelle McNeill, R.Ac, RMT

Michelle is a Registered Acupuncturist and Registered Massage Therapist. She is a member of CMAAC (Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada), ATCMANS (Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of Nova Scotia), NADA (National Acupuncture and Detoxification Association) and MTANS (Massage Therapists’ Association of Nova Scotia).  Michelle graduated with honours from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  After completing her 3 year Acupuncture Diploma program, Michelle furthered her studies at Liaoning Zhong Yi Yao Hospital in China.  

 

Michelle began her career as a massage therapist and then expanded her studies to acupuncture so she would be able to treat a wider variety of conditions.  She currently treats many different conditions from musculoskeletal conditions to systemic conditions.

 

Years ago, Michelle sought acupuncture treatment to deal with stress related issues and found it very effective.  This is why she has a special interest in helping people who suffer with depression and anxiety. She has incorporated special stress reduction acupuncture clinics into her practice to help people with anxiety, depression, drug rehabilitation, PTSD and other mood related issues. Michelle feels whole heartedly that mental health is equally as important as physical health. In order to better help clients suffering from stress, depression and anxiety Michelle offers less expensive group acupuncture sessions, as well as individual sessions.

 

As a massage therapist, Michelle focuses her practice on treating TMD (pain and dysfunction of the muscles and joints that move the jaw) and other jaw pain related dysfunctions.

 

When not helping clients, Michelle also enjoys African drumming, bike riding and loves to travel to different parts of the world.
