“I have suffered from low back pain and sciatica for several years. I wanted to incorporate acupuncture into my regimen of ongoing exercises and did a google search to find an acupuncturist in my neighborhood. My search led me to Healing Points Acupuncture and Wellness Center in Riverhead with Dr. Michelle Iona at the helm. Because of Covid 19, my first encounter with Dr. Iona was a virtual consultation where I found her to be professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. As I started my journey with Dr. Iona I soon realized that my overall health also played a part in my chronic pain issues. Together we discussed my diet, water intake, and various other issues and formulated a specific plan for me. My acupuncture treatments have been 2x week and while they have helped immensely, I feel my overall health has improved even more. These are very challenging times for all of us but rest assured this office and Dr. Iona have all the safety protocols in place. The office is run efficiently, and appointments can be made on the website if needed. We track my progress and setbacks together, and always have a plan going forward. I highly recommend Dr. Michelle Iona and this office to get you where you want to go.”Cathy B.
“I am a retired board-certified holistic nurse. I've had the great professional pleasure to open integrated health centers within major tri-state hospitals. These programs were client-centered with multiple practitioners from conventional medicine and alternative professional backgrounds.
I was so happy when Michelle Iona became my healing partner. She embodies an integrated approach to health and healing and has amazing credentials to ensure her best practice approach. Her expertise in Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and herbals integrates with her understanding of functional medicine, nutrition, and dietary supplements. She's really helped me get back on my feet physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Her warmth and engaging personality become the icing on the cake.”Joanne C.
“I’ve never felt so supported on my healing journey and I can thank Dr. Iona for that. With a PCOS diagnosis and being on birth control in the past consistently for 14 years, I came to Dr. Iona about a year after coming off the birth control pill and not being able to get my period back. I went to different doctors and had lots of tests done, but kept finding myself wanting to try a more natural and holistic approach first, hoping there was a way to balance out my hormones and helping my body regulate again. I’m SO happy I did not give up on that. After working with Dr. Iona for about 5 weeks, my symptoms reduced significantly and I experienced my first menstrual cycle after being without one for a whole year!!! Feeling the changes happening to my body throughout the beginning stages as she was helping me get back on track was the most EMPOWERING experience. She integrated other healing modalities during treatments which I felt really enhanced my healing process. Between her comforting energy, strong passion for what she does, and her wealth of knowledge, I felt so confident and trusting in the treatment and healing process. She has also guided me through lifestyle changes that I will be forever grateful for, checks in with me & holds me accountable, and what she has taught me I continue to implement daily because of how amazing I feel. I went in hoping I would feel better physically, but I’ve realized since working with her I feel better not just physically, but mentally & emotionally as well. My health related worries have greatly dissipated, and I’m so excited to continue this journey as it is just the beginning!”Devin D
