Healing Point Therapeutics Clinic

Everyone has their "happy place." It's that place where they feel completely safe, incredibly comfortable, and life is good. I strive to bring this feeling into every aspect of my clinic. From the moment you walk in the door, I want you to feel as if you can finally take that deep breath and let go, looking forwarding to the time you will be spending here gearing up your body and mind for the positive changes that are right around the corner.

Each room features an Amethyst BioMat. The BioMat contains thirty pounds of warm amethyst crystals to create a soothing and enveloping warmth for you to enjoy during your treatment.

Meet Marisa Fanelli

I have always had an interest in medicine, and in the healing relationship between patient and practitioner. My mother was sick throughout my childhood, and my observations of her treatment left me disenchanted with the medical field. One of my most vivid memories is carrying my mother into the hospital, on the verge of death, because she was taken off a medication she needed to survive in order to get unnecessary testing for another disease. The doctors were so busy focusing on symptoms that they seemed to forget that she was an actual person outside of that, a whole being who was more than the sum of her physical parts.

Watching my mom suffer spurred my journey into the world of acupuncture. Intrigued by this mysterious medicine, I applied to the New England School of Acupuncture, the oldest acupuncture school in the U.S.

My passion for this medicine led me down all sorts of pathways: I traveled to Japan to study Shakuju (a non-insertive acupuncture technique); I practiced community-style acupuncture in an AIDs clinic in the Dominican Republic. I’ve even studied facial rejuvenation techniques!

I am possibly the most curious person in the world, and the wonderful thing about acupuncture is that I can study for the next 80 years, but still have more to learn! We acupuncturists are constantly educating ourselves, and our treatment style evolves along with us. After practicing for a few years, I developed an interest in the concept of combining acupuncture with hypnosis. I became certified in hypnotherapy at the Thomas Institute of Hypnosis, and began to incorporate this into my sessions. The results were better than I ever imagined, and now the majority of my patients come in for what I refer to as “hypnoacupuncture.”  

When I’m not in the office, I’m writing, traveling, or coaching small business owners.
