Hello, and welcome! My name is Melanie Miller, I am a Licensed Acupuncturist and nutritional specialist caring for patients in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area and practicing with a bias toward finding natural solutions for chronic and acute conditions.
As a result of today's fast-paced, modern lifestyle, deteriorating food quality, and the persistent dietary mis-information that's floating around out there, our bodies have become under-nourished and over-stressed.
It has become harder and harder for your body to do what it naturally has the ability to do- maintain, heal and thrive. With a little assistance and the building blocks for repair, though, your body CAN recover!
Whether you are experiencing physical, emotional or mental discomfort, or looking for a way to way to support and maintain your overall health, Acupuncture, natural nutrition and dietary therapy can provide a holistic, effective and side-effect-free approach to achieving your greatest level of wellness.
As a patient in my office, you will experience a different kind of healthcare. You will know that you are genuinely and deeply cared for and you will be honored with the time and attention you deserve. In my office, patients are empowered and educated- so
that as informed people, they are better able to take an active
participation in their own healthcare, and ultimately be able to make
the appropriate choices for their health and well-being.

"No more surgery for me!!! After 2 shoulder surgeries and the threat of a third, I decided that maybe acupuncture was what I needed. I had been looking for an Acupuncturist that was trained, skilled and knowledgeable. I found that and more in Melanie at Turning Point Wellness. I suffered from severe pain in my shoulders and could not lift my arms above my chest for over 10 years...after less than 4 months of treatments, I am now able to fully extend my arms straight above my head! I was told by my PT that I would probably never have more than 60% of my shoulders....HA!!! When I told Melanie that, her eyes lit up - I could see her mind saying - we can do better than 60%!! She did - 100%! Melanie's bedside manner, her professionalism, her knowledge of health and nutrition, her positive attitude and her positive outlook on life will make your visit more than you can imagine. Melanie listens to you and your body and treats accordingly. I would have settled for SOME relief and after 10 years of suffering - I honestly forgot what it was like to be pain free!. I value Melanie's talents and her insightfulness and I have been so fortunate to cross paths with her at a time in my life when I needed it most. Thank you Melanie. Oh, and other aches and pains along the way?? Melanie did wonders. A severe earache and inflammation - Melanie decreased the amount of days I suffered. A crippling pain in my leg - practically gone in 2 sessions - Melanie at Turning Point is the entire health package. Wonder if I can make her my PCP???"
