Meet My'chell Vincent, MAcOm, L.Ac, Founder

Acupuncture/Aroma Point Therapy/ Craniosacral Therapy/ Visceral Manipulation/Guided Imagery

In the 21 years that I have been working with individuals on their journey to optimal physical, mental and emotional well being, I have learned that humility and compassion go a long way in creating a safe and nurturing healing space.

Much of what compelled me to devote my life to the study and practice of Acupuncture and Energetic Medicine, is the dazzling wisdom inherent in the systems of holistic thinking.  Through this approach, the human being is viewed as an interconnective entity of all parts and systems, not just a pattern of significant complaints. Imbalances and congestion within this system will inevitably arise. Addressing these trauma’s from an individual standpoint, including the emotional and psychological aspects, will provide solutions that are rooted in the underlying imbalance.

In 1991 I was in a severe auto accident, which made me acutely aware of a lack of integration on the Western Medical Model approach. Although my doctors wanted to help with my pain and injuries, they were ill-prepared to help me with the emotional and psychological side of my trauma.  Limited in their approach to offer much more than just  a temporary band-aid in the form of pain medications and their bleak forecast for a less than optimal and limited future.  I refused to accept this outcome.

I began to do research on complementary healthcare  , and this is when I found Acupuncture and Energetic Medicines. A systemic systems approach to address the body, mind and spirit in an effort to regain full integration and the absence of congestion and pain. A system where I would be involved in my own healing journey, not just a bystander.  This dynamic integration of energetic medicine restored my hope, released my pain, and restored my life.  I knew I had to share my experience.

So, after completing my undergraduate work at Marylhurst University, and receiving my Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 1998, Elements Holistic Wellness was founded.
