Melissa Sawyer L.Ac, Dipl.Ac. (NCCAOM) #ACU.0002562Melissa Sawyer L.Ac, Dipl.Ac. (NCCAOM) #ACU.0002562

After graduating with a psychology degree from University of Buffalo, Melissa was drawn to the acupuncture profession for its ability to help patients to begin a life of healing and balance. In fact, Melissa had health issues of her own that originally brought her to acupuncture after Western medicine alone fell short. Through her personal healing experience with acupuncture, Melissa is inspired to heal others through holistic treatments. Melissa graduated from Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver; she loves being an acupuncturist and is constantly invigorated by the results she sees in her patients. 


Melissa chose to join the Modern Acupuncture team because she believes wholeheartedly in the mission of “Making Lives Better,” and feels that affordable and accessible care can bring acupuncture into the mainstream.


When she isn’t treating patients, Melissa can likely be found rock climbing. Melissa is passionate about adventures. She loves traveling and staying active by dancing, skiing and hiking. 

Stacey Hughes  L.Ac., Dipl. O.M. #1697Stacey Hughes L.Ac., Dipl. O.M. #1697

Stacey attended the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine. Like many healers, her journey to practicing acupuncture began on the road to healing herself. Acupuncture and herbs helped her to have a baby after two years of trying to solve her fertility issues with Western Medicine.


Eastern Medicine changed her life in the best possible way so she decided to become an acupuncturist to help others as well. Stacey believes acupuncture makes peoples lives better by resetting the nervous system into a relaxing, healing state. "Our lives have become so hectic in this modern world that we are often operating in fight or flight. It not only provides relief from stress; it alleviates pain, calms inflammation and restores overall health," Stacey says.


She decided to become part of the Modern Acupuncture team because she resonates with its mission to make lives better through the delivery of affordable and approachable care for people in her community. When asked what she loves most about Denver, Stacey says “Denver is an amazing place to practice acupuncture because of its outdoor focused lifestyle. People here are already in the mindset to live a healthful life and acupuncture fits seamlessly into that picture.”

Dr. Eliz  Erman-Britton has been a dedicated practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 14 years.  Her studies at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, including an internship Cheng Du University of TCM in Si Chuan, China, and clinical experience working in a Western Medicine Family Practice have helped her build a unique understanding of how Chinese and Western medicine can coexist and mutually benefit from each other.


Her clinical experiences include evaluating and treating pain management, PTSD, sleep disorders, headaches, migraines, anxiety, immunology, sports trauma, neurological issues, gastrointestinal disorders, and psycho-emotional imbalances, among others.


Eliz believes that Acupuncture has the ability to improve the physical social, and mental wellbeing of an individual - ultimately allowing us to live a better quality of life each day. Modern Acupuncture seemed like a perfect fit as Eliz is very drawn to community acupuncture as she enjoys the diversity in cases, pace and its ability for treatments to be given at a lower price point.


As a Denver newbie, she loves how active the majority of people are outdoors. During her free time, Eliz likes to go hiking, kayaking, tend the garden at home, and have adventures with her family.

Mari M. (Lakewood, CO) - 1/5/2020


I've been doing acupuncture with M.A. Acupuncture Lakewood - Belmar for about 6 months now and my life is CHANGED. Started the sessions looking for some relief with my Migraines - after a couple weeks and TOTALLY MIGRAINE FREE (until the present day), I've learned that acupuncture can help with Anxiety and, as consequence, my sleep is better, my stress and anxiety controlled and even my skin is better (with their GLOW acupuncture). They work in a Community set up (a very fancy and relaxing one - nothing like I've seen before) and have VERY affordable memberships and packages. Besides that, their treatments are 30 minutes long, which makes a lot of sense in our VERY busy life. The Acupuncturists are amazing, the staff lovely and the owner, Danielle, is a mom and told me, more than once, that her goal with the clinic is making the lives of their patients better!! Totally recommend it!!!

Caryn F. (Lakewood, CO) - 10/24/2019


I have tried many other acupuncture establishments. Modern Acupuncture in Belmar is by far the absolute BEST! The place is absolutely beautiful. From the time you walk through the door, you will be completely taken care of. The entire staff is amazing. From the front desk coordinators to the acupuncturists to the Owner, everyone is treated as an individual and they are all truly invested in each individual's wellbeing. They take time to get to know you and your needs. It is a great place to relax and heal. In addition, they take the time to make sure they keep everything very clean. They clean each and every wonderfully relaxing chair every time sometime leaves and they make sure it is ready for the next person. I feel very blessed to have found this place and the people working for Modern Acupuncture.

Susan P. (Lakewood, CO) - 10/22/2019


Three visits in to this and I am a believer! The staff is amazing and I already feel a connection with these wonderful people and trust their skills. I have had anxiety and insomnia for years and just came through chemo. My oncologist recommended it and I am so thankful she did. I have notice a fairly pronounced decreases in my anxiety and a much improved sense of well-being. 3 visits!! I do not think this would be the case if not for professionals who are truly passionate about caring for the specific needs of each individual that walks through the doors. Did I mention the amazing atmosphere?

Alisha D. (Lakewood, CO) - 8/12/2019


I look forward to to my appointments. It is so relaxing and has really calmed my allergies down.
