The Center for Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine

The Center For Acupuncture And Traditional Medicine was founded by MaryEllen Velahos, L. Ac. Ms. Velahos envisions a health system where both the western trained allopathic physician and the traditional health practitioner work together to provide the best care for their patients.

MaryEllen Velahos decided to become an acupuncturist after having a success story of her own with acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.“Two months of weekly acupuncture treatments turned a chronic problem completely around for me.” She says that she was surprised to find that the needles were hardly “needles” at all and felt nothing like she had expected. There was virtually no pain and she found herself going to each treatment session wondering “what would happen next” as she saw her condition make a 100 percent improvement. She also discovered that the sessions themselves were very relaxing.

After becoming licensed in Pennsylvania, Velahos opened The Center for Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine in Bala Cynwyd. She says that what she loves most about Chinese Medicine is that it has a treatment for every condition because “we simply rebalance the body, which when in balance takes over and does the healing all by itself.”

The Center For Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine is located in Bala Cynwyd, PA. Bala Cynwyd borders Philadelphia and is convenient to many locations. The office is centrally located, accessible by public transportation and has convenient parking for patients.
