Bridge Community Acupuncture

August 2021 News


Summer is in full swing. Melissa and family just got back from an amazing vacation exploring California with family, celebrating 50 years! Highlights include camping in Mendocino Grove, hiking among the redwoods, lounging with Kudu, Gini fowl, lemurs, and other Safari animals and the Charles Schultz museum in Santa Rosa. And finally exploring the sights and sounds of San Francisco. If you want to see a photo gallery of the adventure, you can like or follow her personal Facebook page, Melissa Lahmeyer.

(In the near future, hopefully, there will be a photo book in the clinic!)


Melissa's 50th birthday is next month. As it gets closer she is getting more focused and clear about what she wants to create in the coming year and decade. She is passionate about nurturing and growing Bridge Community Acupuncture. And inspired to build Bridge Community Health, an expansion clinic that includes more affordable and effective alternative medical treatments, supporting community in embracing holistic mind/body/spirit health. All support and best wishes welcome! 

What’s Good for the Body

We are always working to improve our knowledge and skills as acupuncturists. And we realize that healing is a multifaceted process that requires ingenuity, exploration, and patience.


We have new essential oil samples and inhalers for sale for $4 each.

We encourage you to try essential oils to help regulate your nervous system and alleviate your symptoms in between treatments.  Essential Oils, and the olfactory system in general, are an often overlooked opportunity to encourage change and healing deep within your brain and neurons.


We have a variety of CBD products. Creams, gummies, and tinctures. Including new Nano particle tinctures with other cannabinoid molecules targeted for anxiety, sleep, and pain reduction.


Additionally, we have recently partnered with Estuary Herbs, a local independent herbalists, to bring you personalized herbal formulas that can assist your healing.

Please feel free to ask about any of these products to learn more.

August is a Time of Change

We know that the last 18 months have been extremely unusual and difficult for all of us. We are very grateful that our business has survived and continued to grow. We appreciate your trust and support and always work hard to make sure we earn it. Thank you. 

As things continue to be stressful, unknown, and not ideal, please come, relax, and feel safe, whenever you can. Remember that a healthy, calm, peaceful you is your best defense for any of life's stresses and unknowns.  


August is a month of big changes for us, as parents. A new school year is about to start: New classrooms, new lessons, new routines, new experiences. We are so excited to start this school year and see what happens next.


As the clinic continues to grow, we will be working hard to grow with it. Our mission is our focus and fuels our decisions.


We are committed to creating a safe, comforting space that encourages healing for all who enter, while offering affordable and effective services that promote self care and sustainable practices to strengthen and broaden each individual's sense of well-being and joy in life.


Thank you for your support.
