About Us

Acupuncture changed our lives and it can change yours too! When you are struggling with pain, allergies, fatigue, or chronic illness, they can take over your life. My staff and I know, we have been there. And we are happy to help you get back to doing the things you love…with acupuncture!

Practicing alternative medicine for the past 25 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!

Meet the Staff

Meet Valerie

Patient Coordinator

Valerie, our patient coordinator, found us through her own experience with Neuro Acupuncture to restore nerve function after a serious car accident. It had a happy ending though and when a job opportunity at ILW opened up, she knew it was meant to be.

Her knowledge of acupuncture from the patients perspective as well as years of customer service experience makes her the perfect person to lead our front desk. 

Valerie also works on her small homestead with her partner Rhianna. You can find her tending the gardens or her menagerie of farm animals and exotic pets. She spends her free time painting, riding her horses, and baking.

Meet Taylor

Patient Coordinator

Taylor joined the team as a patient coordinator in early 2022. She had her first acupuncture treatment after starting at Inner Light Wellness and has since become a firm believer in the practice! She is happy to share her experience with you and answer any questions you may have about receiving care at our clinic. 

Outside of the office, Taylor crafts herbal infused self care products for her small business, “Seed to Soul Apothecary”. In her free time, she enjoys working in the garden, hiking with her dog, and renovating her 1890s farmhouse with her partner, John.

Meet Brittany

Patient Coordinator

Brittany is an Inner Light Wellness Acupuncture alumni! As one of our earliest staff members at our previous clinic in Downingtown, she is a seasoned pro. You’ll see Brittany when she covers our Friday shifts.

When she’s not busy being patient coordinator at the clinic, Brittany provides customer service support at a counseling clinic and is a busy new mom! She enjoys spending time with her husband and their two young boys. They love swimming and exploring nature. And sometimes…Brittany gets the chance to use her degree in English Studies to just sit down and read a good book.

Get back to doing the things you love…with acupuncture!
