Meet Our Acupuncturists, L.Ac.

Marie Ellison, L.Ac. #AC16801Marie Ellison, L.Ac. #AC16801

After a career in engineering and raising three children, Marie was a latecomer to the field of acupuncture. However, she found her way as motherhood confirmed daily the importance of good health as she looked for natural and effective healthcare for her family. 


Marie’s parents had introduced her to acupuncture and other restorative therapies years ago. “I decided to become part of the Modern acupuncture team after hearing their goal of bringing the benefits of affordable acupuncture to as many people as possible,” she says. “I consider it a privilege to be part of someone’s journey to health and their effort to recover a balanced life.”


It is also exciting for her to work in the Laguna Hills clinic location because she has been part of the community for more than 20 years, and she loves the idea of providing care for her neighbors.
