Margaret Celli, Licensed Acupuncturist

Owner & Acupuncturist at Inner Light Wellness Downingtown

Acupuncture changed my life – and it can change yours! When you are struggling with chronic pain, allergies, and other health problems, they can take over your life. I know, I’ve been there. And I’ve found methods that worked for me and thousands of patients. I’m confident they will work for you too!

As owner of Inner Light Wellness Acupuncture, I love working in the healing arts. Practicing alternative medicine for the past 20 years, it has been my mission to discover the most effective therapies to resolve your unique health concerns. Never satisfied with just treating symptoms, I want to get to the root of your pain or symptoms and help you find relief!

I have studied the very best natural health care methods available – receiving instruction from the founders of several powerful techniques. With my diverse educational background I offer fast, effective, relief that lasts using two unique styles of acupuncture – Dr. Tan Acupuncture and Master Tung Acupuncture. These two powerful acupuncture techniques quickly resolve even stubborn problems such as chronic low back pain, neck pain, arthritis, allergies, sinus issues, and asthma. Acupuncture works to resolve functional issues such as: digestive problems – including acid reflux, and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as common conditions such as insomnia, menopausal symptoms, menstrual issues, headaches, migraines, and so much more! My patients report significant change within their first 5 treatments.

It is my greatest joy to help people find pain relief and and relief from symptoms of illness so they can enjoy life to the fullest. When patients tell me how their lives have changed since receiving acupuncture treatment, I am especially grateful to be able to offer solutions. Read our testimonials and discover how acupuncture may help you.

I feel fortunate to live and work in Downingtown. where we have a wide array of complementary therapies to choose from. These are truly exciting times as more people discover and embrace effective treatment options that work. Experience renewed vitality, joy, and vibrant health.
