Michael Stilp - Newest Team Member of Firefly Hollow Wellness

Michael is a native of Pennsylvania from Wilkes-Barre.  After attending King's College in Wilkes-Barre, he moved to New York City to receive training as a hemodialysis technician.  He practiced in ambulatory kidney clinics in N.Y.C., Bethesda Md., and Florida.

In 1986 Michael was a passenger in an unfortunate auto accident that led to ongoing back pain.  Years later, while receiving a massage treatment in Florida, he was impressed by a therapist who cleared up this condition.  Due to this experience he became a licensed massage therapist. 

Over a period of 20 years while working at hotel, resort, and private practice, he administered thousands of massage treatments and cleared up many chronic conditions. Some years later, he was in another auto accident which he resulted a shoulder injury that only a Chinese acupuncture doctor was able to resolve. Therefore, Michael decided to enroll at Florida College of Integrative Medicine in Orlando where Michael earned a Master's degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

Michael relocated to Pennsylvania to be closer to family and friends. He began is acupuncture practice in 2012 in Shippensburg, PA. and opened a satellite office in the Harrisburg area. Micheal is currently licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine as an Acupuncturist.

He enjoys music, ballroom dancing, hiking, nutrition, reading, writing, gardening and relationship with his beautiful, talented and loving girlfriend.

More about Acupuncture: 
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow.

The many benefits of acupuncture include:
·  Pain reduction, Pain removal and function restored.
·  Stress and tension relief

Add-Ons to Acupuncture Treatments:
Cupping has been a part of Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues. I simply place a specialized "cup" onto specific points on your body, and then use suction to draw your skin up into the cups. It doesn't hurt — it simply draws fresh blood to that area of your body, which facilitates the cleansing and strengthening of your Qi (energy). The end result is a greater overall sense of health and well-being.
Add-On Cupping-$20

Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing and health. Moxibustion has been used for healing purposes throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi (energy), and enhance your overall vitality and health.

Among other benefits, a landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that 75.4% of women suffering from breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses that rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at an acupuncture point on the bladder meridian.
