Answers to the Questions "Why?" by Megan Marco, our Doctor of Acupuncture, Licensed Acupuncturist, Owner & Director of Stonington Natural Health Center

Thank you all for being a part of the Stonington Natural Health Center's community. 

Perhaps you have wondered "Why?"  Well...  I would like to share with you the answers to many questions about Stonington Natural Health Center...  including why I created the Center and how the Full Acupuncture Treatment was formulated.

Why?  Patients ask...

Q:  Why did you create Stonington Natural Health Center?
A:  Stonington Natural Health Center was created to provide holistic healthcare for the whole family.  We provide the healing modalities that I believe in the most, right here, for you.  Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine give your body the correct signals and biochemistry to heal itself; physical discomforts; Nutrition, and the other modalities that we offer are other pieces of the puzzle.

During the 8 years that I was in Portland, Oregon, I achieved my 4-year Masters in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.  I then created Oak Street Acupuncture Center/Oak Street Natural Health Center which was one of the most successful health centers in Portland.

I wanted to live closer to my parents in Mystic, Connecticut, and in 2004, I moved back east.  Initially I practiced Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine at All That Matters and at the Chiropractic Office of Dr. Hutter.

In 2005, with the urging of my husband Noah, I created Stonington Natural Health Center. At the Center in Portland, because it was such a great success having a collaboration of Holistic Practitioners and modalities, including Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine and Massage Therapy, I always wanted to create something similar here, for my parents, their friends, and everyone to enjoy.  And here it is!  We offer all of these to you.

Q:  How did you create the format for the Full Acupuncture Treatment?
A:  Over the years, I have experienced many Acupuncture and Massage Treatments from many different Acupuncturists and massage therapists. Combining the best of these experiences, I have created a relaxed and soothing environment for you to have a deeply healing and blissful treatment.  The treatment consists of Acupuncture and ends with a 10, 20, or 30 minute massage.  With two years of training in both in Tui Na and Shiatsu, I used to do the massage at the end of the treatment.  In about my 5th year in practice, I formulated a way to have talented Licensed Massage Therapists come in to the treatment to be able to focus on the massage so that I could focus on the herbal formulas and supplements for the person.

Q:  How did you get interested in treating fertility with Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine?
A:  It was natural that I became an expert on fertility because of my own trials and tribulations. After having HELLP Syndrome after giving birth to my first child, two miscarriages after that, and then difficulty conceiving, I dove into Advanced Studies in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine on conception, fertility, and healthy pregnancy in a comprehensive series of weekend seminars with Lyn Swerda, L.Ac. in Boston.  In addition, for the month of October 2007 I studied the Classical Chinese Formulas in China with Dr. Huang to learn a more complete understanding of Chinese Herbal Formulas for fertility. I tackled my own hurdles relating to fertility and pregnancy and now have a second healthy boy.  I greatly enjoy helping people get pregnant, helping them to have healthy pregnancies, induce their births and have a good birth, and then to have energy once the baby (or babies!) come.  We have quite a few twins success stories!

Q: Do you do Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
A:  I do offer this! I have training with one of the American pioneers of Facial Rejuvenation, Acupuncturist Virginia Doran from Manhattan.  Facial Rejuvenation, also known as Acupuncture Facelifts, is subtle, effective, and helps to shape the face like clay.  The treatments are like a facelift; they pull the energy up on the face; build collagen to push out any wrinkles; fade scars; and bring more circulation to bring more vitality and a healthy glow to the face.  The Acupuncture facelift does not involve botulism, like botox, nor does it inject any chemicals into or onto the skin.  It is a healthy way to look and feel younger.

Q: What are your goals for Stonington Natural Health Center?
A:  I hope to help a lot of people with pain relief, stress relief, fertility, pediatrics, hormonal balancing, and healthy aging.  I offer Acupuncture starting at only $25 to have an array of prices of treatments to help people in all budget ranges.  I hope to help you with your health and happiness goals.  Please contact us today to schedule your appointment: 860-536-3880, info@snhc.com.
