So many people will travel to the vitamin store only to find they have no idea which nutritional supplements or homepathics they really need. They choose based on recommendations from friends hoping the same thing will help them, but we are all different, and have differing needs.

Enter Meridian Health Alternative... our nutritional health test using the BioMeridian platform identifies which of your systems are stressed, weak, or in balance. A custom profile is created specifically for your needs, and a recommended list of natural, practitioner-grade supplements or homeopathics is provided.

While acupuncture is widely available, it is not widely accessible due to the high cost. Acupuncture works best when a person can have multiple treatments per month. At current prices, driven even higher when insurance is involved, most can only afford to be treated once per month. This is not generally as effective as more regular visits. MHA offers acupuncture at half the cost of normal visits, which allow you to be treated more often. This way, you know we are more interested in your health than our bottom line.

Now that we have taken care of the nutritional systems, and opened up your meridians so your body can better process them, we can address your physical self. A great regimen of exercise does not have to be hard or cost a lot. We offer personal training which will equip you for a healthy lifestyle. Our low-impact training teaches you how to use your own body weight to exercise and get optimum benefit. This knowledge will help you to continue in this regimen so it is now part of your lifestyle, not a whim.

Make an appointment today so we can evaluate your needs. The first test will get you on the way to knowing the state of your health! Check out our website for booking information.

  • Knowing the state of my health right now; inexpensive.
  • None I can think of...

For years I was feeling that, by the time I go to the doctor for a blood test, whatever my problems are, they would have to be deep just to show up. I was right! I now know I can find out the state of my health before it gets into the blood with the BioMeridian test at Meridian Health Alternative. I love it!

My symptoms were tied to my nutritional deficiency, but didn't know in where without just guessing. Who knew there was a test to tell me. I am very happy now and am taking the whole food supplements religiously.

Oh, and I was able to have a acupuncture treatment after my test, which was incredible! My first time, and Dr Collins was very kind and gentle. No pain like I thought, and I feel energized!

So happy! They're supposed to be adding massage therapy soon... heaven!

I knew people had told me they received one acupuncture treatment for sciatica and felt better, but my neck has been hurting for a long time. I thought I would have to live with this forever. One visit with Dr Collins and I have no neck pain!

I am going to also do test, and see what's what...

I received both the nutritional health test and acupuncture on the same day. I am taking the herbal formula recommended by the DOM, Dr. Collins, and feel wonderfully better already.

The service, professionalism and atmosphere of their "studio" is awesome. Very peaceful atmosphere conducive to good health. Very high quality and comfortable chairs for both test and acupuncture (yes, it makes a difference). Acupuncture is community style, so I can have my whole family treated at once.

I highly recommend the health test, as it pinpointed exactly the areas that I was having trouble in, and practitioner grade herbal formulas were recommended based on MY needs. They also offer practitioner grade whole food supplements and homeopathics, although I chose herbal.

2 days after my appointment, both the technician who tested me and the acupuncturist called to see how I was. It made me cry that they were concerned after the fact. Superb.

Oh, and the cost was close to half what others are offering, although I couldn't really find anyone else offering the BioMeridian test. Very good value!
