Acupuncture and East Asian medicine changed Megan’s life in her late twenties. Lifelong chronic health issues and unsustainable stress led her to seek relief in acupuncture as well as yoga. That combination not only helped her understand and manage both mind and body, it also put her on the path to “right livelihood.”
After years of study and practice, Megan became a registered yoga teacher and a board-certified acupuncturist. But upon graduation, her life was changed again when she and her husband had a beautiful baby boy. The skills and knowledge she’d gained became such effective tools for self-care during her childbirth journey that she was inspired to specialize in women’s care and reproductive health. She now helps patients with fertility issues and pregnancy and provides perinatal and postpartum care. This can include balancing hormones and restoring healthy menstrual cycles.
Megan has also had success working with patients to cultivate and restore optimal digestion. She is exceptionally skilled in helping women heal their relationship with food and their bodies. She enjoys helping clients regulate mood, including anxiety and depression. She facilitates smoking cessation and sugar detoxes and is adept in the treatment of pain.
Megan incorporates bodywork into all of her treatments, offering fire cupping and gua sha in addition to TuiNa and Chi Nei Tsang, depending on patient need and preference.
Megan loves Tucson and its people and is grateful to call the Old Pueblo home! When not working or teaching her monthly Bhakti Yoga class (complete with harmonium), she likes to hike under the beautiful, big blue desert sky. She has no spare time, but if she did, she imagines she would enjoy writing morning pages again and taking harmonium lessons.
Although academically trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Megan focuses on Master Nagano Style Japanese Acupuncture as taught by Sensei Kikko Matusmoto and Sensei Tsyuyoshi Shimamura. Japan has a long tradition of blind acupuncturists, resulting in a style of acupuncture that emphasizes sensitivity, highly developed palpation skills, and exceptionally gentle needling. Megan has studied with, and hopes to continue to learn from, Shimamura’s apprentice, Sheishiro Hokazono.
