Nicole McLaughlin Acupuncture — Our Clinic’s Story
In 2015 this acupuncture clinic was founded to improve the lives of our community here in Washington, DC. Our goal is to help others discover the practical benefits of East Asian Medicine.
The reason I became an acupuncturist was so I could help other women find safe, natural, and effective solutions to their health concerns. This is because when I was a teenager, I had a near-death experience related to women’s health. Western medicine saved my life, but couldn’t provide the answers of why it happened. I found those answers in East Asian Medicine.
