Grace Ganel - Acupuncturist and Zero Balancer

Grace Ganel, M.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., Certified Zero Balancer, Acu-Detox Specialist

Hello! I'm Grace
I am a licensed acupuncturist in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. I have a Masters in Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. I hold a certificate in Zero Balancing from the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators, and I am also a certified acudetox specialist through the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association and I am a certified Diplomate of Acupuncture with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Acupuncture and zero balancing are fantastic and complementary modalities. I believe in the power of these interventions because they have been instrumental to my own healing journey.


As a teen, I suffered from debilitating depression. I was given several psychiatric medications, but none of them helped me.


I had used acupuncture for knee pain when I was a child, and finally went back to see if it could help my mood.


The results were like night and day.


Where I used to feel deflated and defeated, I found myself alert and excited to live my life after treatments.


Since then, acupuncture has helped me regulate my mood and my hormones and supported me with allergy and asthma concerns.


Zero balancing has helped me to learn to be fully present in my body after years of emotional distress. 

My philosophy of healing is that all people are whole and complete, and treatment should aim to remind them, body mind and spirit, of this truth. I want to help you learn to listen to your symptoms, because they are teachers, requests, and invitations into fuller health. Rather than covering them up, I want to help you learn their language so you can offer your body, mind, and spirit true healing.


My practice is open and friendly towards all people. I love working with LGBTQIA folks, and I proudly support BIPOC folks and practice anti-racism. I can't wait to work together with you on your health goals.
