Acupuncture is a proven, effective, evidence based and holistic system of healthcare, that supports the mind and body during its own healing process. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back over 3000 years. Its main goal is to keep the body balanced and healthy by improving or aligning Qi and Energy flow within the body. This is achieved by stimulating specific acupuncture points (there are over 400) on the body with thin sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles. These points are found along the meridians or pathways (channels) of energy flow and are anywhere from the head to the toes and in between. When areas of the body are blocked, we have physical or emotional pain and imbalance.
Acupuncture works to stimulate points and unblock stuck energy, allowing one’s Qi/ energy to flow and restore balance. Scientifically Acupuncture releases endorphins and serotonin which are the bodies natural pain killing chemicals and mood boosters. Modern research has proven acupuncture’s effect on the immune, endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive and nervous systems. The whole process is incredibly relaxing and peaceful and keeps the mind and body healthy and happy for the long term.

There are so many benefits! An improvement in health, pain, mental status and just an overall relaxed and happy feeling are to name a few. Even after one session, a person just feels calmer and better. Acupuncture gets the blood and energy flowing, reduces pain, grounds the mind body and spirit and allows ones to check in with themselves. Acupuncture effects almost every major system and organ function in the body.
Of course you can and this is also beneficial for mom and baby for many reasons. Feel free to call and speak with Casey who has a lot of experience treating pregnant women, inducing labor and even treating small kids.
Acupuncture is very safe if performed by a competent, certified, licensed acupuncturist. The needles are sterile, used once, stainless steel and disposed of in a medical waste biohazard bin. .
Not usually, but some common side effects can include soreness, mild bruising or bleeding where needles were inserted. Also sometimes post treatment a person can feel lightheaded or fatigued. All of this is very temporary and most likely a person just feels calm and relaxed.
Everyone is different and everyone will have different result even for the same conditions. Usually, a treatment plan involves one time per week for about 4-8 consecutive weeks. Some people continue care even after their issues have resolved as this is great for prevention and well- being.
Yes! some insurance companies cover acupuncture. We are not currently in network with any insurance companies but if you have out of network care,
we can provide you with a superbill which the patient can self-submit to their insurance company for reimbursement. Best way to check is to call your insurance company, ask if there is out of network coverage for Acupuncture on your plan and also ask if it is diagnosis specific.

About Mikailah Muhammad
My name is Mikailah and I am a Licensed Esthetician. I received my Esthetics license from the Aveda Arts and Sciences Institute. I specialize in facials, waxing, and relaxation. Skin care & esthetics has always been a passion of mine and is more than just “work”. Having a career that I love and admire is a blessing that I am beyond grateful for.
When I was younger, I would experiment in the kitchen making skin products. Clay mask, oils, shea butter, lip gloss, and even sugar wax. Anything that came to my mind I made it . That was when I knew I wanted to become an esthetician. There are so many different factors when it comes to our skin. One of the most important being what we put in our bodies.
I believe internal is just as important as external. My goal is to not only treat but educate my patients to have a better understanding of their skin care needs. All while providing a safe and nurturing space for everyone to feel comfortable and confident in their skin.

Angela Fellow is a nationally board certified and licensed Acupuncturist in Virginia, D.C. and Maryland. She is a general practitioner with a Bachelor of Arts in Asian
Studies, Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, a Nationally Board Certified diplomat of Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and certified Reiki practitioner.
Angela first discovered Chinese Medicine during a semester abroad in China. She
saw a hospital department dedicated to treating solely with acupuncture, learned about food as medicine and the curative properties of herbs and teas. She recognized how the culture embraces health through many facets of life: diet, connection with nature, meditation, exercise, acupuncture and herbal treatments.
Later in life, Angela experienced a recurring skin condition that traditional medicine had no answer for. She sought treatment from a local acupuncturist, who properly diagnosed her allergic eczema reactions and successfully treated her. The reactions have not returned since! Angela’s treatments as a patient made such an impact on
her that she decided to learn how to practice this medical system and share in everything TCM has to offer.
Often enough, and I’ve seen it happen so many times, acupuncture is the solution
to chronic and debilitating ailments where other treatments have fallen short. As a practitioner, my aim is to help patients seeking their own health answers by finding and treating the root cause of dis-ease and reestablishing health. Our bodies are smart. They tell us what they need through presentation of symptoms. Given the proper guidance and attention, acupuncture employs the body to direct healing toward the condition being treated. This means that acupuncture has the potential
to treat any imbalance, anywhere, however that may manifest.
Working with patients is a joy for me. Through alleviation of pain, restored mental health and balanced emotions, I have seen patients regain parts of themselves and
go on to live fuller, more enriching lives. Seeing the impact this medicine brings is always something to celebrate. Sharing in this practice is a continuous gift!
Modalities used in Angela’s practice: acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, slide
cupping, moxabustion, gua sha, herbal formulas, aromatherapy, electrical stimulation, lifestyle and dietary advice, emotional support

I have spent the last six years, extensively studying craniosacral therapy and various treatment modalities that aid in the healing process. My focus has included the impact of different types of trauma, including developmental trauma and emotional regulation. Throughout my educational experience and my own journey toward healing, I have personally seen the benefits of this holistic and extremely unique practice. Craniosacral Therapy can unlock emotional wounds and enhance the body’s ability to heal from physical ailments.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological system of the body called the craniosacral system. This system is comprised of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, I release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the pulse and movement, increasing function of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing process, CST is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction including: Migraine Headaches, Chronic pain, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Scoliosis, Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Stress, TMJ, and more.
Due to the gentle nature of this treatment, it is safe and effective for all ages, from newborns to the elderly. However, my educational background and experience includes treating children ages 5 and older. In a typical appointment, my patients will lie on their back fully clothed, while I tune into the gentle craniosacral pulse and rhythm.
Somato Emotional Release (SER) Therapy
SER is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of Craniosacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. Using the craniosacral rhythm as an indicator, information can be gained from the tissues of the body to recall and release the trauma held in the memory cells of the muscles. This is a gentle, non-invasive technique used to get to the root of discomfort and dysfunction.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Fascia is a layer of tissue that permeates the human body. It interpenetrates and surrounds muscles, bone, organs, nerves, and other structures. Fascia is an uninterrupted, three dimensional web of tissue that extends from head to toe, interior to exterior. CST and/or Myofascial Release Therapy can help release tension within the central nervous system.
