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.
