Merline Sahsonya Melvin, L.Ac, Dipl. Ac, MSOM, has over 16 years of experience in the field of natural holistic medicine. She completed her Masters in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine at the Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (MITCM). She is a licensed acupuncturist in Washington, DC and is board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). With her years of study and practice of Eastern medicine, she brings an integrated approach to healing, and wellness that includes nutrition, lab testing analysis, acupuncture, laser therapy, chakra balancing, essential oils, ear candling and herbology.

Her philosophy is similar to Thomas Edison: "The doctors of the future will give no medicine. But will interest patients in the care of the human frame. In diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." I believe the greatest medicine of all is to teach people how not to need it. Healing begins with Self, restoring the Body back to the state Harmony and Balance. When we forget how to connect with Self thatís why Iím here to help you to remember and empower yourself.

ACUPUNCTURE

The exciting thing about acupuncture is that is not for “fixing symptoms, rather it stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Acupuncture usually puts people in a state of deep relaxation. When we are in the relaxed state it opens the energy pathway’s, eases blockage and places the body into a state of calmness, wholeness and balance.

EAR CANDLING

Ear candles stimulate the reflexology points and meridian pathway of the ear. Ear Candles allow the body to shift from a sympathetic (stressed) state to a parasympathetic (relaxed) state. When we relax our bodies are able to heal themselves. Ear candling can also help relieve ear infection, sinus infection, rhinitis, cold/flu and allergy symptom.

BIOMAT

The Biomat has helps thousands of those suffering from minor muscle and joint pain all the way to arthritis. Amethyst has been thought to calm and clear the mind for thousands of years. Infrared healing light has been shown to treat chronic pain, support core body temperature, speed the healing of joints and tissue, improve circulation, detoxifies, boost the immune system, promote deep relaxation and improve sleep and improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety.

NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS

Are you having health challenges that western medicine has no answers but to put you on medicine and you really don't feel better. Micronutrient Testing solves the missing link that western medicine has no answers. SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Test (MNT) is the ONLY scientific and objective assessment of functional intracellular micronutrient status, supporting an effective, patient-centered approach to medical treatment and prevention of chronic illness.

Nutritional balance is the key to health. You can’t build a house without a strong foundation – and nutrients are the foundation of a strong body. Nutritional balance not only plays a key role in optimal wellness, it also works in chronic disease prevention and in managing the aging process. SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing sheds light on nutritional deficiencies that often go undetected with routine testing and which can help identify the root cause of many health conditions and concerns. It measures the functional levels of 31 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids within your white blood cells. Nutrient levels in these cells represent your unique nutrient status, which allows us to customize a plan to support your specific needs.
