“When a woman makes the conscious choice to seek a holistic approach to her wellness, she is opening new doors and taking empowering steps towards caring for her “whole being” – not just her body and mind, but her unceasing spirit.”
“Meg has been a primary force in completely changing my health and life around. I went to her in May, over 100 lbs overweight, sick with breathing issues, high blood sugar, PCOS and hormonal issues. I have worked with her twice a month for about 8 months and have lost 70 pounds, have NO breathing issues, normal blood sugar and have had a regular cycle for the last 3 cycles. As a woman with PCOS this is life changing and huge. Meg looked at me holistically and has helped me tackle bad habits, nutrition, food sensitivities, genetic conditions and for the first time in my entire life I am on the road to health. On top of all of that I never would have been someone who wanted to do acupuncture but Meg is very talented, careful and gentle and the benefits are many. I am so thankful to have found her and will continue to work with her to meet my health goals. If you are ready to tackle your health Meg will help you get there!”
– Jessica Wolfrey, School Teacher, Charleston, SC
“I have been working with Meg in her Washington, DC office for about 6 months. She is incredibly caring and interested in finding the deeper issues causing symptoms seemingly unrelated to the layperson. Meg is honest and direct, and cuts to the chase when it comes to her nutritional support. Under her care, I'm losing weight and keeping it off, feeling better, and my chronic symptoms have largely subsided. I always feel at home when it's time for an appointment, and I feel quite well taken care of and listened to when I bring health issues and concerns to Meg.”
– Chrissy Macken, Career Coach, Washington, DC
“Meg Richichi is a true talent! She is a master at helping people heal and educating them in ways to live healthy lives, naturally. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I often refer my clients to Meg to assist in their healing process. I highly recommend Meg.”
– Hillary Evans, Clinical Hypno-Therapist, Charleston, SC
“I’m impressed with Meg both professionally and personally and feel truly blessed to be under her care! She has assisted me with her holistic view using both acupuncture and nutritional-supplement expertise to balance hormones, augment my energy levels, and adjust my view of self-care. I've never been to an acupuncturist who so deftly used needles - so gentle and efficient - I barely knew they were there. Meg is also a delightful person, and her warm, caring, upbeat nature only makes my time with her more enjoyable!”
– Erin McCleary, MSW, LGSW-Therapist, Washington, DC
“Meg gave us the help we needed to achieve a successful and healthy pregnancy. She is incredibly passionate about her work and honest as to what she can do to help. I would encourage anyone struggling with fertility or pregnancy to contact Meg Richichi for her opinion and recommendations before subscribing to conventional fertility treatments.”
– Ellery Schauer, Operations Manager, Charleston, SC
“I recently had a session with Meg via Skype. It was my first session with any practitioner via Skype and to my delight it was as intimate as being in her office and easier to fit into my schedule. The session itself was phenomenal, as previous to the call she spent significant time reading through the "health background" docs I filled out prior to our appointment - so when the call started we were able to jump right in.”
– Emily Twomey, Global Director Marketing, New York, NY
“Meg is an amazing practitioner. She brings a wealth of knowledge around holistic health from nutrition and supplements to acupuncture and alternative healing methods to her clients. She has truly helped me to transform my life. I had been struggling with low energy and weight gain and through her help, I have lost the weight and gained so much energy and feel like I can be more present for the beauty of life. She is also a great advocate for you and works with you to allow your healing journey to unfold, never forcing anything but working to find the best options for you. I highly recommend Meg as a holistic healer, acupuncturist, integrative health practitioner, and so much more. She is an amazing light in this world. Thank you Meg!”
– Angie Caraviello, RN- Surgical Nurse, Charleston, SC
“Meg Richichi literally healed me in just a few sessions and I must say when I made my first appointment I wasn't necessarily a believer. Prior to our first session I had seen several doctors mostly from "Yale" -one of which wanted to perform exploratory surgery concerning issues with thyroid and "gut" not to mention that I also had some unresolved issues relating to head trauma from two prior accidents. So it would be an understatement that my body was being held hostage by pain which also created a domino effect of "stress" in day to day living.
Meeting Meg was a joy. She will hone right in on your concerns- be them spoken or unspoken. She addresses not only the physical but, envelopes one with her spiritual intuitive abilities.
I remember when we met for my third appointment, Meg walked into the room and asked, "Where do you hurt?" My response was, "I don't have any pain". It was such a wonderful feeling and we both became a bit tearful. I feel so grateful and privileged to have met her. Meg's extraordinary skills make her a true healer in very sense of the word!”
