molly-dearstine-acupuncturistThrough acupuncture, Molly assists her patients in discovering how they can find that place of peace, joy, and relaxation within themselves at any moment, regardless of what is going on around them. Acupuncture, she finds, reminds each of us of the possibilities we have all around us. Molly believes in the ripple effect – that when she treats one person the effects of the treatment extend to all others that person comes into contact with.

An acupuncture patient for over a decade, Molly found acupuncture changed her life. When she started receiving treatments, she was a single parent of two young children and worked part-time. She felt completely out of control of her life, running from one activity to another and generally living in chaos. After just a few treatments, she knew she was a much better parent, less prone to screaming and irritability, and much more in touch with the love she has for her children. She also noticed that her allergies were less bothersome, her sleep was better, and her mood was greatly improved. She found acupuncture to be so essential to the stable functioning of her family that she kept seeing her acupuncturist even though she was on a limited budget.

Molly holds a Master in Acupuncture from Maryland University of Integrative Health and is a licensed acupuncturist in the State of Maryland. In addition, she is board certified and certified by the State to perform animal acupuncture. She grew up in Ellicott City, and currently lives in Glenelg with her husband, daughters, and assorted animals.
