Morgan has developed a strong connection with her hands and to their ability to access sources of pain and injury. She is able to precisely locate acupuncture points at various depths that are necessary for release and relief. She is aware of the levels of sensation and her needling style is tailored to be deeper and stronger, or more superficial and gentler, based on the patient’s condition and constitution. Morgan is experienced in working with a wide variety of conditions including Women’s health, chronic and acute musculoskeletal injuries and pain, digestive issues, stress management, and insomnia. She has studied 5 element acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture including trainings in Kiiko Matsumoto style as well as Tsuyoshi Shimamura style acupuncture.

Creating a safe space, helping people to find their center, and be at ease in their bodies is important to her practice. She strives to help people reclaim the parts of their bodies and systems that have struggled with illness, disharmony, and pain. Her treatments are based in acknowledging the body’s innate ability to heal itself and enabling it to do so in the most effective way.
