It is my passion to help you look and feel good inside and out! I have been practicing Oriental Medicine in the Poway and San Diego area since the year 2000. I have always loved learning about biology, anatomy, and how the human body works. Naturally, I studied Biology in college with the intent of following a career path in the health field. It was the study of Medical Botany, and subsequent acquisition of natural medicine books and herbal texts that inspired me to study acupuncture and Medical Herbology. I believe in what I do, therefore I use this medicine for myself, family, friends, and my two children. I provide the same level of care for you as I do for them.
I would like to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your healing process.
Best in Health,
Michele M. Arnold, L.Ac.
