Meet the Acupuncturist

As main acupuncturist and owner of Inner Light Wellness Acupuncture in Downingtown, PA, it is my greatest joy to help people feel better and get back to living their lives; lives free of pain and illness. With over 25 years practicing alternative medicine, I have been privileged to work alongside chiropractors, M.D.’s and in my own private practice. Since 1994, first as a structural massage therapist specializing in eliminating pain and dysfunction, then continuing my studies to become an acupuncturist, I have helped thousands of people feel better. I’d love to help you feel better too!

My range of studies includes such diverse therapies as acupuncture, allergy elimination, Chinese herbal medicine, structural massage therapy, and energy medicine. I have explored and refined specific acupuncture techniques that work quickly and effectively to get you back to living your life….pain and symptom free!

“We have been clients of Margaret for about 10 years. Margaret is the best healer & therapist that I have ever experienced. My wife, Dr. Nancy Hykel-Malone is an internist [physician] and we have both sent many people to Margaret who have been amazed at her ability to help them on many levels, not just relief of physical pain. She is highly trained in many areas of alternative therapies and is very intelligent, empathetic and sensitive. As a dentist, back problems are a way of life and I have been treated by dozens of therapists over the last 35 years of practice and none….NONE have helped me at the level that Margaret has. Her compassion and caring are truly the BEST!”

Feeling the autumn chill today? Breanne’s full review will give you the warm-fuzzies: “I had tried everything for my neck pain/migraines from chiropractic, physical therapy, massage and medication. Nothing had worked for me so I decided to try acupuncture in hopes it would work. Coming to see Margaret Celli was the best decision I could’ve made. I used to have pain and headaches at least every two weeks that would last for days. Since coming to acupuncture for the last few weeks, I haven’t had one episode. I’m so grateful I can enjoy life again without the fear of my pain.”💚 ... See MoreSee Less

I came to see Margaret out of curiosity. I was interested in reducing stress and increasing general motivation. Over the course of a few treatments, I began to feel more motivated about daily life. Additionally, I began to feel an increase in self esteem as well as clarity and peace of mind. I would recommend her not only because of the effectiveness of her treatments, but also because of the caring spirit that is evidenced through both Margaret and Brittany.

Margaret Celli has improved the significant pain that I experience using her acupuncture techniques and energy medicine. I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, including bilateral knee replacements, as well as fibromyalgia and melanoma, and have ongoing muscle and bone pain for an extended period of time. Currently, I am working with my insurance carrier to help defray the cost of this treatment. The results of Margaret’s treatment is truly remarkable and certainly is something that I respect and value. I would recommend her highly. Margaret is an experienced, caring and committed professional who listens to her clients and tailors their treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

After suffering from debilitating headaches for many years and while having one almost every day for three months, I contacted Margaret Celli at Inner Light Wellness to request acupuncture treatment. To say that I am satisfied is an understatement! After the first treatment a particularly sore spot was totally gone and after three treatments, I was headache free for the first time in weeks and weeks! I was able to get back to the business of daily living with a new feeling of lightness and energy. It was a remarkable experience and I thank Margaret for her skill and professionalism.
