About the Acupuncturist
Laura Meisel M.S., LAc. NCCAOM
Are you looking for someone who can help you feel happier, be healthier, and achieve better balance in your life?
Would you like to have a health practitioner who gets to the bottom of your concerns and helps you heal from the inside out?
With me, you’ll get more than just a regular acupuncture treatment. My ability to combine several techniques into one session gives you a more well-rounded holistic approach to your health. Most treatments are an ideal integration of Acupuncture, Massage, Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Reiki to help you achieve your personal wellness goals.
I’ve been practicing Acupuncture for 18 years. I have a Masters of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. I started my training at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA where I received specialized education in Classical and 5 Element Acupuncture which is focused on harmonizing and balancing for your mental and spiritual well being.
I graduated from Tri-State College of Acupuncture New York, NY with a focus on Physical and Sports Medicine for Pain and injury. I am NCCAOM Certified from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine since 2003.
My love for natural healing and manual hands-on therapy began 30 years ago with Energy and Body Work experience, which includes work with Seattle Sports Medicine where I worked with the Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Seattle Supersonics. I was also a professional dancer so I understand from a very inside perspective how to optimize athletic performance.
I have a passion for listening and helping you see where you are now, identifying patterns of blockages, pain and disharmony, then using my skills and your individual energy dynamic to address and re-empower you to return to your optimum health and flow.
I’ve always had a passion for research and am a life-long learner. I have a published study on the effects of Curcumin (Turmeric) and Colon cancer from Bastyr University where I helped establish the first research lab.
Outside of being an acupuncturist, I’m also a wife and mom of 3 creative, beloved daughters. I’m an artist, teacher, and a published co-author of the book Maui Energy Vortex. I love sailing and have sailed around the world. In my free time I love to spend time outdoors with my family exploring Maui, paddle boarding, snorkeling, hiking, chasing waterfalls, and relaxing on the beach.
In my work, your goals become my goals. I will help you find what it is you truly want in your health and life, and create a treatment plan that addresses any obstacles you are facing in reaching those goals. My goal is always to get you unstuck, release what is no longer serving your highest purpose, and support you so that you reach your goals and feel better overall.
