On Point Acupuncture and Wellness Center was founded by Melissa Lone, L.Ac, fABORM in 2015. After 10 years of performing 8 shows a week as a Broadway Singer/Dancer, she became interested in redefining what it meant for her to be both physically and mentally strong. Throughout her journey as a female athlete she experienced insomnia, Chronic Pain, anxiety, stage fright, and sustained various injuries as well as suffered from women's health and fertility concerns. By way of Acupuncture, she was able to maintain her rigorous schedule, achieve her professional and personal goals, and experience the gift of conceiving 2 beautiful children. Her whole hearted faith in this Medicine is deeply felt and it inspired her to leave her career as a Broadway Show Actress/Performer. 

Melissa’s purpose has been to share her knowledge and abilities to help patients maintain optimal health at work, at home, and in relationships. Her practice provides well- informed, research- based, treatment methods that coincide with the allopathic and conventional medical approaches. She is an active member of the San Diego community not only as a Small Business Owner, but as an Integrative Medical Professional & Guest Speaker for Wellness Events throughout the County. She and her Team are committed to rendering the highest level, professional solutions in Holistic and Integrative Healthcare.

With many years experience practicing Chinese Medicine, Jessica's integrative style also has a strong foundation in Western tradition. Her experience as a RN at Guthrie Corning hospital in New York State enabled her to learn from, and work alongside, many qualified MDs for years. In medicine, Jessica has always maintained the desire to help patients with a more holistic approach. She left her career as an allopathic Medical Professional to pursue an internship with a Chiropractic Doctor’s Office. It was through her experience working with chiropractors that she was introduced to Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. As a mother herself, Jessica soon discovered the gift of Integrative/Holistic Medicine and how it can help pediatric patients through all the many stages of growth, whether in preventative care or used as treatment for childhood disease. She then made the decision to relocate from upstate New York to San Diego California, where she earned a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.

 

Jessica supports her patients of all ages in her practice with a wide variety of specialties, including: Chronic Pain and Pain Management, Pediatrics, Emotional and Mental Trauma, and more. When she is not treating her patients at On Point Acupuncture and Wellness Center, she is tending to her organic farm with her husband and traveling with her family. She is a mother of 3 beautiful children and is passionate about wildlife conservation, nutrition, and holistic medicine.

As a Yoga Instructor and Personal Trainer, I love offering my students the space to discover mindfulness in their yoga practice and simultaneously explore movement in their own bodies.  I am passionate about sharing the many amazing benefits of yoga, including creating a more positive outlook on life.  My ultimate goal is to illuminate my students to the art of taking in what is necessary to excel and letting go of what is not.  

 

With a personal training and ballet background, I fell in love with yoga, and began my journey with Ashtanga Yoga and Bikram Yoga.  Today, I attend Restorative, Power, Vinyasa and  Sculpt Yoga.  My personal yoga practice keeps me grounded through personal challenges, and helps me to stay powerful in mind, body, and spirit every day.

 

The quote by Sri Dharma Mittra, “Only the mind and body pass through difficulty.  Inside you are free”  supports my philosophy that freedom, happiness is always within us, no matter what our circumstances.  My teaching as well as my own practice centers around santosha-being OK with what you have, accepting what you are, without feeling that you need anything extra to make you happy regardless of outside challenges.  Tapping into my inner contentment allows me to now pause in a situation and respond with intention and out of love.  Santosha is within all of us if you delve deeper in your practice. 

 

When I’m not teaching or taking yoga, I have fun hanging with my daughters and husband.  And I teach to my dog, Holly, whose most noted yoga  achievement is Downward Facing Dog followed by a high five!
