"Good health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being." -World Health Organization

“I feel so privileged to be in the position, for the rest of my life, to help others. The best part of my job is being able to help people truly heal. Most people, to some degree, are in some level of pain, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional. My goal as a provider is not only to treat symptoms, but more importantly to treat the root causes of those symptoms to help people truly be well and live vibrantly. That’s what wellness is, and that’s what I love to help others achieve.”

When Melinda is not treating patients, you will most likely find her in the ocean with her family on the Seacoast of NH. Melinda is an avid surfer (yes, even during the New England winters!), certified yoga teacher, and lifelong athlete. She possesses an innate appreciation of the importance of developing and maintaining a strong and healthy body and mind.

 

As a licensed Acupuncturist, Melinda blends the best of both eastern and western medicine. In addition to her education and clinical experience, Melinda spent over a decade training doctors in medical devices and robotic surgical technology. As a result, she has an excellent foundation and appreciation for western medicine, while recognizing the importance of comprehensive, integrative care for patients. Compelled by helping others, she made the decision to leave her career and become a healthcare provider herself. Melinda chose the field of Acupuncture because it gives her the unique opportunity to provide personalized, holistic, patient-centered care.

 

Melinda Ferreira is a nationally board-certified Diplomate of Acupuncture, and is licensed to practice in the state of NH. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture at MCPHS University. During her 3 years of training, she completed clinical internships at Massachusetts General Hospital, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, Cambridge Health Alliance, MCPHS University, and Element Care Senior Clinic. She is currently completing her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine.

Had a great first session with Melinda and have already booked my next appointment! Melinda made me feel comfortable, listened carefully, explained the procedure clearly. Slept like a rock last night! Her exam room is very comforting and inviting too. Great space and beautiful view out of the window ;)

Melinda is fabulous!!! I am so glad she has her accupunture practice as she is so knowledgeable and easy to talk to about any health issues.

Melinda was kind, warm, and very supportive of me. She was very thorough in getting my background health information. Excellent follow up questions to my answers. My interaction with her actually motivated me and gave me new ideas about some areas of my health that I have wanted to improve. She is very knowledgeable in acupuncture and in health overall. She was extremely professional. She has calm energy. She explained where and why the needless were being placed. I am going back again Monday - and booked through November. That says it all.

MF’s Listening skills are excellent; she put me at ease right away with her smile and easy manor. Her explanation of her plan for service was most helpful. MF checked with me frequently during the treatment regarding my comfort level. There is nothing I can say I disliked.
