Meet the Practitioner


Amanda earned a Master’s of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine in Austin, Texas.  This 4-year Masters program included traditional methods of Chinese Herbal Formulations, Dietary Therapy, Facial Rejuvenation, Cupping, Moxibustion Therapy, Gua Sha, Tai Chi, Qigong, Medical Qigong, Acupuncture and Tuina.  Her focus areas are fertility support, pain management, and post-trauma healing. In addition to specialized acupuncture trainings she has been certified in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, completed the Craniosacral Level 1 training, and attended seminars on working with near infrared and red light therapy. Her clients have observed that combining acupuncture with the LED infrared device provides significant pain relief and healing not achieved with any other modality alone. She is currently training to become a nurse in the hopes of bridging the communication disconnect between Acupuncturists and allopathic medicine.

I have suffered with lower back and right hip pain for years, am almost unable to walk.  After 3 sessions of acupuncture with Amanda Wellman, no more pain.  After the second treatment I had a noticeable difference, after the third, good as new!  I was skeptical at first, but so glad I decided to try it!  Would recommend for anyone!”
