I am the owner of Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City…..for many years I suffered from severe headaches..…and always assumed it was somehow related to my not being a good sleeper combined with running a stressful business…..about seven or eight years ago I was referred to Dr Michelle Iona by a friend in the Hamptons who said she may be able to help me through acupuncture…..I had never had acupuncture and didn’t welcome the idea of needles being put through my skin…..I had about six initial treatments with Dr Iona which were not uncomfortable to tolerate….after the initial treatments, my headaches were less severe…..I have found that if I go too many months without the acupuncture treatments, the severity of the headaches intensifies….Dr Iona is very professional and is well trained and educated and caring or I wouldn’t let her put the needles into my face and body…..She also helped me with digestion by providing me with special digestive enzymes that I swallow before dinners….She’s the real deal as are my internist, cardiologist, pulmonologist, gastroenterologist, and urologist….being in my seventies, I need the best in all of these categories.

As a Functional Health Coach I value practitioners who have studied and value a functional approach to healing. Dr. Iona is a rare combination of intellect and empathy. I sought her out to help relieve knee pain and received so much more. Just walking through her door I felt cared for and heard. She not only alleviated my knee issue but helped reverse systemic inflammatory issues related to food and lifestyle choices. I am very grateful to be under her care and would encourage others to seek her out as well.

I highly recommend Dr. Michelle Iona! She is knowledgeable and compassionate. She gets to the root of your concerns and addresses your overall physical, mental, emotional, and nutritional health. Michelle has helped me through struggles to get pregnant and I have continued my weekly appointments now that I am pregnant. The office is immaculate, and she and her office staff have gone above and beyond during these Covid times to ensure everyone’s health and safety. Do not hesitate to call for an appointment! Thank you, Michelle!

After having chronic lower back pain for years, I decided to give acupuncture a try. I was lucky enough to pick Healing Points Acupuncture & Wellness Center after a Google search. Dr. Iona made my first experience with acupuncture such a positive one. She took the time to get to know me and customize my treatment. Dr. Iona made sure I felt safe and comfortable. I could feel a marked difference in my back after each treatment. After four visits, the overall tension in my back was released and my lower back pain was greatly reduced. Dr. Iona is a knowledgeable and supportive practitioner. The office is immaculate and welcoming. Her staff is positive, professional and eager to help. I highly recommend Healing Points Acupuncture & Wellness Center. Thank you, Dr. Iona.

Back in 2019, I was diagnosed with a very rare form of Muscular Dystrophy "FSHD". This muscle wasting disease is daunting and there is no cure. As a result, I have incorporated Acupuncture and Frequency-specific microcurrent "FSM" therapies from Dr. Michelle Iona. Before my very first session, I could feel I was going to meet a talented clinician. Her research into my disease, methodology and deep dives into my medical history, including but not limited to blood tests etc. made a profound difference. Along with her extremely talanted Associate Maria, you enter this office greeted with a calming, caring presence that immediately put me at ease. Dr. Iona took the time to understand my full health history and symptoms before developing a customized treatment plan. After six months, my chronic back pain, spasms in the neck began to subside dramatically. Even with Muscular Dystrophy, my walking has improved. Her expert guidance on lifestyle, diet, allows me to finally have a great roadmap naturally moving forward. I'm forever grateful to have found Dr. Iona and experience the healing powers of acupuncture firsthand. Her skill and dedication have improved my quality of life immensely. I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone seeking relief from pain or chronic conditions through this ancient holistic medicine.

Words can't describe how thankful I am for Dr. Iona and her amazing acupuncture therapy. I saw Dr. Iona when I was diagnosed with prenatal anxiety and depression and attended weekly sessions for nearly 6 months. She's kind, thorough, smart, and warm and felt like a partner in her approach. Also, her office is meticulous and calming. Through treatment there I was able to find my baseline and feel confident again. I couldn't recommend her more.
