I heard about Susan at Center Point Healing from a Doctor for natural medicine all the way in Florida. I was in so much pain all over from my neck down. Taking 1,000 mg of Tylenol daily for two months. I have always been a healthy eater. My para thyroid was out of balance and I was told that that it had to be removed surgically. A friend told me about trying Natural medicine and Acupuncture. It has been a year now since I met Susan. She listen to me and came up with a plan to treat me for about three months. It has been a year now living pain free. Yearly physical done. All came back normal. Para Thyroid is doing what it was made to do. I am living pain free. Praise God. Blessings to you Susan and all at Center Point Healing for doing what you... Read more »
Elizabeth is an outstanding acupuncturist. I saw her two years ago for specific physical problems and am continuing to work with her as I address larger life issues. As a movement analyst and teacher, I admire the effective blend of professional skills and personal qualities that Elizabeth brings to her work; and, as a patient, I deeply appreciate the results. Her ability to be warmly receptive and genuinely present with me, and at the same time to also be keenly attentive to information that she gains from my demeanor, tone, and ways of framing the nature of my symptoms during the course of our conversation is impressive. Her skill in reading the pulses amazes me; her touch is very reassuring; and I find her to be highly intuitive in her choice of points for each treatment. I also appreciate the fact that she shares her choices with me so that... Read more »
Elizabeth is WONDERFUL! I have been seeing her for a little over one year. As she promotes on her website, she is present with you and where you are. She loves her practice, is kind and smart and funny and oh-so-caring about your situation without breaching any professional boundaries. Elizabeth has soft hands and a very gentle touch. She is one of the MAJOR BLESSINGS in my life. Her office is a calm oasis and I look forward to EVERY appointment. She will answer any questions you have and guide you to your best outcome. Appointment times are easy to come by…sign-up for a couple at a time to guarantee your favorite time slot.
Darren is new to the practice and I have only seen him once, but he, too, is a gentle soul with a caring heart. See him if you have had sports injuries. Orthopedics is his specialty.... Read more »
Elizabeth is truly a gem. I have struggled with an auto-immune disease for about six years. After meeting so many “challenging” people in the medical community, she is a HUGE breath of fresh air. She genuinely cares, and she simply knows what she is doing.
I have felt much better, and my “western” doctors have been amazed with my standard progress-according-to-blood-tests. She is not extreme or out there, but securely down to earth and logical. And I can’t emphasize her caring nature enough. I recommend her to everyone- with manifested health problems or, even better, as a preventative care measure! You would be glad you went!

It is with a very high praise that I recommend Elizabeth Fellows to you, I have had in the past, some experience with acupuncture and I can say that working with Elizabeth has been a pleasure, and her competence in this field has been demonstrated to me in the course of my treatments. She not only has demonstrated a high degree of technical competence but also her willingness to be present during all of my treatments as a fully human person in conjunction with me and open to the possibilities that are to be accessed in the present, this has facilitated my growth and personal presence in the moment.
As a practitioner, Elizabeth has demonstrated to me a very wide data-base of knowledge in the field of acupuncture. Her technical skills and comprehension of the field are excellent. She brings this knowledge into the treatment room on my every visit... Read more »
I love Center Point Healing. I have been a patient here since April 2007. From the time I first walked through the doors at Center Point Healing, Elizabeth Fellows has made me feel as if I was her only patient. Before she begins treating you , she sits with you each visit from approximately five minutes and discuss your issues, symptoms, your week’s major points, and/or whatever is on your mind. With this information she tailor’s your treatment to what you need that day. Each visit lasts about an hour during which time she explains what’s she doing, going to do, and what the result will be.
Center Point Healing is a true place of relaxation and warmth. Elizabeth Fellows is genuinely a nice, caring, and intelligent person . She devotes time to increase her knowledge about her acupuncture craft and she stays abreast of new techniques. I love and... Read more »

Acupuncture has been a godsend to my life. Prior to coming to you for treatment, I was one of the biggest skeptics around. I had been on medication after medication and even tried herbal teas and foot soaks but nothing has compared to the relief that I’ve gotten from acupuncture treatments. Though I have a long way to go, I would rather do it safely and this has proven to be just that. Your positive and caring attitude has taken away a lot of the frustration that I felt. I always leave feeling that you care and that you’re really doing what it takes to help me. For 6 months, it was disheartening going to other healthcare providers only to leave feeling discounted and discouraged. Not only that, but it’s worse when doctors quickly shove medicines in your face because they can’t figure out what’s wrong. I guess that’s why... Read more »
I have been seeing Elizabeth for over a year. She is a highly intuitive, thoroughly professional practitioner. Her office is warm and inviting. Her acupuncture treatments have served me well in many ways, physically and emotionally.
There have been a number of immediate improvements to my well being along the way, and the long term benefits have been remarkable. I would highly recommend her.

During the summer solstice your yang energy reaches its peak. It is important to harness the peak of this yang energy, because as summer shifts into fall yang energy will decline. This great abundance of yang energy will translate throughout your body because during this season you are active and growing.
According to five element theory, during the summer the organ that receives extra energy is the heart. When the seasons change so do the organs we should focus on in the body. You should focus on the heart during summer. Feed the heart heart-nourishing foods and make sure to remain active so the heart receives positive energy. continue reading
The organs in Chinese medicine are more than just a physical representation. The organs include not only their physiological function, but also their mental, emotional, spiritual and elemental qualities that align with nature and the seasons. Let’s explore the heart.
The heart season is summer, and heart is considered the most yang: hot, bountiful and abundant. Yang is what is bright, moving, outward, hot and loud. Yin is what is more inward, still, dark and cooler. The color of the heart is associated with red, the climate is heat, the flavor is bitter and it’s paired organ is the small intestine (many urinary issues are due to “heart fire” heat descending). The sense aligned with heart is the tongue, and the vessels associated with heart are the tissues. The heart sound is laughing, and the emotion is joy. The heart houses what is known as the shen, which is the mind and spirit. continue reading
While the flu is actually not a season, we have become programmed to think of it as the months of November through March. On average, the flu hospitalizes thousands every year, especially the young and elderly. There are also a number of deaths related to the flu, mostly due to people already having compromised immune systems.
The flu, also known as influenza, is a highly contagious respiratory infection that is caused by a number of viruses. To date, there are approximately 26 to 30 different known strains of the flu virus. This is one of the reasons the flu vaccine has only mild efficacy. The flu vaccine itself, typically only covers five to seven strains of the flu. Symptoms of the flu include fever, coughing, a sore throat, fatigue, muscle aches, pains, runny nose and watery eyes. continue reading
As the school year kicks back into gear so should the healthy habits that you and your children have before practiced. Notice how I said “practiced,” because we all know during the summer-vacation months we tend to indulge a little. Maybe you have had one too many backyard barbecues, or three too many trips to the favorite ice cream shop down the street. Whatever your summer vice may be don’t worry about it, you can regain those healthy habits from before and introduce them into your children’s lives! continue reading
Although sun protection is extremely important to protect against harmful UV-rays and to prevent skin cancer, next time you pick out your sunscreen, consider what you’re buying. Many common sunscreens actually contain chemicals that can be harmful to your body.
Chemicals to avoid in common sunscreens:
- Retinol palmitate
- Padimate O/PABA
- Nano or Micronized mineral particles
There are several and easy ways to make effective and natural homemade sunscreen. continue reading
Quit the tobacco, and don’t start if you haven’t already
It should be common sense now that smoking or chewing tobacco can lead to multiple types of cancer. If you are trying to quit, you are not alone. Try joining a support group or making a plan for yourself to set goals for quitting. Facing addiction is hard, but not using tobacco can save years of your life.
A healthy, well-rounded diet can do wonders for lowering your risk of cancer and overall wellbeing. Cut out processed sugar and instead focus on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to help fight cancer. Other fish that can help reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in women include halibut, sardines and tuna. continue reading
PTSD is a physiological disorder that can result from being exposed to a traumatic event. The disorder results in several different symptoms including anxiety, irritability, insomnia and flashbacks. The effects of post-traumatic stress disorder in someone’s life can be far reaching. Feelings of hopelessness, shame and despair, problems at work or with relationships, serious health problems, depression, anxiety and drug or alcohol abuse are not uncommon. Getting help can be hard at first, but can have a great impact for helping PTSD. continue reading
For those with arthritis, exercise, no matter how little you do, is one of the best natural treatments. For those with severe arthritis, even the smallest amount of walking can make a difference. Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise for those with arthritis because it puts the least amount of impact on the joints. Strengthening exercises are also recommended to keep muscles and joints strong. continue reading
Don’t forget about physical exercise
Believe it or not, when you’re exercising your body, you’re exercising your mind as well. Aerobic exercise gets your blood pumping, which increases the oxygen going to your brain and lowers your risk of disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease that can lead to memory loss. If you can, start with some exercise in the morning. This can clear your head right off the bat to stay focused and alert during the day. Exercises that require coordination are especially helpful for keeping the mind active such as simply throwing a ball back and forth. continue reading
There are more than 80 chronic illnesses that are immune related including rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, and celiac disease.
Autoimmune diseases result when the immune system mistakenly attacks its own body’s tissues. Immune deficiency is more common than most people think; around 20 percent of the population suffers from some form of an autoimmune disorder, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association. continue reading
