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 tried several psychiatric medications, but none of them helped.
I had used acupuncture for knee pain when I was little, and finally went back to see if it could help my mood.
It was like night and day.
Once deflated, defeated, I found myself alert and excited to live my life.
Since then, acupuncture has helped me further 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. My practice is open and friendly towards people of all walks of life. Whether you're straight, gay, ace, trans, non-binary, or questioning your sexuality, and no matter where your family is from or which family you choose, you are welcome on my table.
