A few words about Gail...

Gail Miller, your acupuncture practitioner, is here to help you heal your emotional and physical pain. 

I have  been in private practice since 1999.  Before becoming an acupuncturist, I was a Shiatsu and massage therapist, and now have over 30 years of health care experience.

I am currently licensed to practice acupuncture in VA , and I am nationally certified by the NCCAOM.  My Masters degree is in acupuncture; my BA is in counseling and social services.   My Chinese Herbal studies were completed at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, now known as the Maryland Institute of Integrative Health.  I studied joint and muscular disorders at the Guang An Men Hospital in Beijing, China.  I also served a six months apprenticeship in Western herbs with Pam Montgomery of Partner Earth Sweetwater Santuary,  in Vermont 







 

why CHOOSE ISLAND ACUPUNCTURE

​​​​​​​

Gail is professionally trained in the latest techniques and products. Her service and dedication to her clients is unsurpassed.

 While living in Philadelphia, PA., I worked at a busy physical therapy clinic, treating pain and trauma from falls, auto accidents, and sports injuries.  I was also a clinic supervisor for senior acupuncture students at the WON Institute of Graduate Studies in Glenside, PA .

Besides treating pain and injuries, much of my practice has been devoted to  women's health care, successfully treating menstrual problems, fertility, menopause., and anxiety and depression. 

I am an avid gardener and lived for 10 years in rural New Hampshire with a wood stove, chickens, and a huge veggie and herb garden from which I made my own herbal tinctures and medicinal teas.  Before joining the health care community, I was a free lance commercial artist and I lived and traveled extensively in Mexico and South America.  My watercolors of the beaches and markets have sold well.  I now live on Chincoteague Island with a much smaller herb garden and my three cats, Minky and Milton, and Wally.
