“One good thing I have noticed about the pandemic is that it is bringing more awareness to people’s health. Making the shift to be proactive in staying healthy instead of fighting against sickness is becoming the new norm, and acupuncture is such a great modality for it!” - Haley DeMarco, Licensed Acupuncturist

Haley DeMarco is a board certified licensed practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.  She started her East Asian medical education on the east coast at New England School of Acupuncture (Worcester, MA), and completed her training at Bastyr University (Seattle, WA) where she graduated receiving her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Prior to Chinese medical school, she received her BA in Environmental Studies at the University of Vermont (Burlington, VT), minoring in Psychology and Music.

Haley grew up in a family of holistic health practitioners, with her mother being a Certified Classical Homeopath, and grandfather who is the founder of Thought Field Therapy (TFT). Being raised in a family that prioritized emotional and physical well being, Haley has a unique perspective on viewing imbalances in the body, acknowledging the root of where they come from, and the property modality to address it. Haley enjoys working with all populations and has a special interest in pediatrics, geriatrics and women’s health.

Her specialties include sports medicine, acute and chronic pain management and balancing emotions. While trained in traditional Chinese acupuncture, she also applies Japanese style treatment which uses minimal needles in a very gentle and effective manner. This style is great for children, the elderly and anyone who may be sensitive to needles. Besides utilizing both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture styles, Haley also incorporates Chinese herbalism, energy medicine, tui na massage, acupressure, electroacupuncture and cupping in her treatments when appropriate.
 

“As a child, I had severe GI issues. After several tests and doctors visits with no relief, I began seeing an acupuncturist. Not only was my acupuncturist the only one who helped relieve my symptoms, she also became a mentor during my tricky teenage years. She helped me understand how stress manifests in my body, which brought my awareness to how the emotional and physical bodies are connected. In traditional chinese medicine (TCM), there is no separation between the two. I am grateful for what my GI issues helped teach me at a young age, and sharing what I have learned brings me incredible joy.”

What Patients say?

“My grandmother has alzheimer’s disease. When brought to an acupuncture appointment, she started to get up halfway through, because she didn’t know that needles were in her. She has greatly benefited from home visits, not just because she has one on one attention throughout the entire treatment, but she feels so much calmer and happier after.”

“Haley DeMarco is an incredible acupuncturist and healer. Her approach to healing is compassionate, wise, holistic, and comprehensive. She is an intelligent and intuitive healer and practitioner. She is an empathetic listener and offers insight into the work she does in a way that is easy to understand as a patient. She addresses physical and emotional pain in ways that are validating in nature and effective in treatment. She offers so much wisdom and insight into physical and emotional pain, as well as the ways that the two are interconnected and treated in TCM. I have been treated by DeMarco for migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia, back pain, digestive issues, and pelvic issues. I leave each treatment feeling incredibly relaxed, and with short and long term health issues alleviated. DeMarco is not only an amazing acupuncturist, she also offers massage, cupping, and other forms of energy healing. I highly and enthusiastically recommend her!”
