Melissa Horton - EAMP Acupuncturist & East Asian Medicine Practitioner, NCCAOM
Acupuncture & East Asian Medicine
Melissa’s interest in acupuncture started while in Japan, after receiving treatment for a sports injury. Inspired by the incredible benefits toward pain relief and accelerated recovery, she went on to become the first Westerner to obtain a degree in Acupuncture & Moxibustion from Morinomiya College of Medical Arts & Science in Osaka, Japan. She is also the first non-Asian to sit for and pass the National Licensure Board in Japan. Melissa then treated patients in the university clinic as a Medical Resident-equivalent while assisting in the school’s research department. Returning to the United States, Melissa completed a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine en route to her NCCAOM Board Certification
