Melanie Dailey, Licensed Acupuncturist
DBA CommonWealth Acupuncture
Melanie grew up in the Cleveland, OH area, and moved to Lexington, KY in 2015. In her prior career as a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant, she worked for MetroHealth, Cleveland’s Level I Trauma Center where she specialized in Outpatient Orthopedics, Aerobic & Strengthening and Work Conditioning for those injured on the job. Working with people afflicted with trauma has taught Melanie to consistently seek methods to help bring harmony back to her patients lives.
In her quest for balance, Melanie discovered acupuncture and loved receiving it so much that she decided it was a perfect second act for her career in the healing arts! Acupuncture supports healthy metabolic rate, harmonizes emotions, improves sleep, raises energy level, and rejuvenates the body. She chose to learn Classical Five Element acupuncture which is based on the understanding of the cyclical flow of energy, similar to that of the seasons. This system of ancient medicine diagnoses a person’s imbalance(s) in their Water, Wood, Fire, Earth or Metal elements, and treats the corresponding symptoms at t he levels of body, mind, heart and spirit.
Melanie is passionate about helping others find balance and continues to learn various systems of acupuncture that counteract obstructed energy flow created by trauma, illness, emotional, or psychological disharmony. In addition to the application of acupuncture and Asian bodywork, Chinese herbs & nutritional recommendations are often made to help facilitate addressing the root imbalance(s) and the return to wholeness.
Graduating from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL, Melanie earned her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture as well as a certification in Chinese Herbalism. She is licensed by the KY State Board of Medicine and is an NCCAOM Board-Certified Acupuncturist. Melanie is also trained in the internationally acclaimed Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System taught by Dr. Martha Lucas.
