Alicia Smith MSA Acupuncturist


Whether you landed here from a trusted referral or just browsing, I am glad you here. I offer a variety of styles of acupuncture. Overall, I tend to have a very gentle style of acupuncture regardless of the tradition I pull from. What I see in clinic includes pain management, women’s health, emotional health and pediatrics.

My master level training from Seattle included general family healthcare. My doctoral training from San Francisco included dual concentrations in advanced pain management and women’s health. My doctoral research is focused on PTSD.

Originally from Appleton, WI, it has been comforting to be close to Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. I appreciate what a city offers but feel much more connected to nature in a smaller town located near water.

Due to the nature of what I do and what I offer, I encourage you to reach out to discuss my practice techniques privately. I am so grateful to practice gentle acupuncture in the UP of Michigan.  I will see you in Escanaba or Marquette, eh?
