Dava Michelson is an Acupuncture Physician specializing in various modalities that support natural health, healing and personal development. Rooted in the nature based Classical 5 Element Acupuncture tradition, the energy based teachings of Medical Qigong, the physical structure of bodywork, and in Zero Balancing (the fulcrum between Eastern energetic and Western structural work), as well as food as medicine, Dava’s goal is to help people listen and connect more deeply to their own inner nature, where connection to and healing of self, family, community and earth are to be found. The result is a medicine that nourishes ones spirit as it brings healing to various conditions and dis-eases.
