Laurie Mitchell is a licensed Acupuncturist and an NCCAOM Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, offering ancient solutions to modern health concerns (through Acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine), to the beautiful eleven lakes region of New York Wine Country, the Finger Lakes. Now with two locations nestled between three of the Finger Lakes; Keuka Lake, Seneca Lake and Canandaigua Lake.

Laurie  utilizes many systems of acupuncture (treatment styles) including Dr. Tan’s Balance Method, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and other abdominal and scalp micro-systems. She works with patients to find the optimal number of treatments required for successful treatment.
