Michele Pouliot is a state licensed, nationally
board certified acupuncturist, located in Auburn, California. She earned her Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (M.Ac.O.M.) in 1999 from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Additionally, she has practiced as a certified massage therapist (CMT) since 1990, specializing in the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and injuries.

Because of her dual background, Ms Pouliot approaches musculoskeletal problems and pain management from many angles:  determining muscle spasms and weak areas, utilizing trigger point release techniques, and assessing acupuncture meridian imbalances and blockages. In most cases, her patients receive prompt pain relief and recover quickly.

Ms Pouliot also provides advanced NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique) treatments. Often conditions that are difficult to resolve can be exasperated by hidden allergies, hindering recovery. 

In addition to relieving pain and allergies, Ms Pouliot uses acupuncture to treat numerous other physical and emotional conditions. The approach used by an acupuncturist differs from that of western medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach, treating the individual as a whole, not just evaluating isolated symptoms. The root cause must be determined, and each treatment is tailored for the individual patient. Many patients seeking treatment for the same ailment are treated entirely differently, depending on their individual condition and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnosis. Today, acupuncture can be used to treat almost any health concern. (Please see the list of conditions treatable with acupuncture)

From 2005 to 2013 Ms Pouliot practiced in The Healing Hands Wellness Center, in Auburn California, a multi-disciplined health center with other independent practitioners of chiropractic and massage therapy. In June of 2013 she moved her  office location a few miles away to Locksley Lane.  In July 2020 she returned to Healing Hands Wellness Center.

Previously, she was in private practice in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, and Lake Oswego, Oregon.
