Melissa Toyoshima
MTOM, Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM), L.Ac. Board Certified Acupuncturist & Herbalist

Melissa Toyoshima - Acupuncture Kalamazoo

Using gentle techniques, I specialize in pain disorders and infertility.

I strive to educate and empower my patients to make well-informed decisions about their health and well-being using a multi-disciplinary approach, including diet, lifestyle, and stress reduction, along with acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

I found Chinese medicine and nutrition after suffering for years with chronic pain, digestive issues and, eventually, infertility. I know first-hand how exhausting it is to see numerous specialists and find they cannot help you. That hopeless feeling about ever becoming healthy again.

Like many of my patients, I found acupuncture as a last resort to help with my chronic back pain. After one round of treatments, I came off all pain medication, could work out, and live a comfortable life again. This experience sold me on this amazing medicine!

With chronic GI issues, my doctors had also failed to give me the answers I needed, so again, I turned to acupuncture with nutrition and herbs to heal.

The success of my acupuncture treatments inspired me to further my studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine and nutrition with a focus on chronic disease. This included food intolerances/sensitivities, endocrine and metabolic dysfunction, autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal conditions, chronic pain and infertility.

I have a broad educational base and history of combined western medicine, behavioral sciences and eastern medicine. I earned my Bachelor of Science from Western Michigan University, specializing in Behavior Analysis and Bio-Medical Sciences with an emphasis on Behavioral Neuropharmacology and Psychopharmacology.
