Meg Frodel comes to you at Soul Acupuncture after traveling a long path in the healing arts.  As a teen she confronted a serious neurological health crisis that led her to seek out integrative health modalities to find her way back to full-functioning well-being as an adult.  She studied and became passionate about teaching and practicing cranio-sacral unwinding, integrative body and emotional work, medical qigong, yoga, meditation, and constitutional balancing through nutrition and food energetics.  

She feels blessed to have worked for many years with a Native American tribe and women’s counsel in the Pacific Northwest, where she reconnected to her purpose in this life in guiding others to find the medicines that we all inherently carry and wake up to in life.

After connecting to earth and spirit in the NW she moved to NYC and became Wellness Director at a large global financial consulting firm in NYC where she developed and ran a comprehensive corporate wellness program there for 10 years:  including classes in nutrition and weight loss sciences, sleep, bodywork, qi-gong, meditation, and ergonomics, etc.

 Working in a skyscraper on Madison Avenue, she learned to reach deep into her knowing that elements of nature and spirit work hand in hand with our modern medicines and resources and are in fact necessary to animate these technologies in healing disease and imbalance. 

However, she found that even when communities like the financial consulting firm had access to yoga, diet, bodywork, and meditation, that deeper diagnosis and medicine were needed to reverse years of damage and stress patterning in their bodies and nervous systems.  

 

Meg then fully committed to her life-long vision of bringing traditional practices of medicine into mainstream culture. She became certified in Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture and spent years working in a busy clinic with a renowned pulse diagnostician and herbalist.   She treated thousands of patients with serious (chronic and acute) health issues and watched them recover with the Advanced Herbal Prescribing and Custom Formulas: tailored exactly to each patients’ pulse.  The clinic also specialized in acupuncture that re-trained each patient's nervous system to correct the source of chronic pain.

She learned again in Chinese Medicine what she had always known:  that each person’s body and spirit is unique, and needs different herbs, treatments, and practices than someone else who may have the same Western medical diagnosis.  The key is to treat the root of imbalance:  which can be different for everyone!  If we keep checking in with the body’s own diagnostic system of the pulse, we can see exactly what it needs NOW, from week to week, to heal and balance!

Meg has joined forces with other master herbalists and pulse diagnosticians,  Eduardo Velasco Valido, at Soul Acupuncture and Herbal in FLA, to offer the public an alternative to the Western medical sickness industry.  It has been our great honor to observe our patients recovering from chronic conditions (that seem ubiquitous in our times!) like Type 2 Diabetes, cholesterol and heart issues, insomnia, anxiety and depression, auto-immune disorders, migraines, and debilitating hormonal and chronic pain symptoms!  

Best of all is that the advanced medical pulse diagnosis is able to detect health issues before they become serious, so that herbs, diet and lifestyle changes can easily reverse and balance them.  Most western imaging, like CAT scans, xrays, stress tests, and MRI’s will only pick up health conditions when they are so advanced that more invasive treatment like surgery is unavoidable.

Meg is excited to share this remarkable system of diagnosis and medicine with you!  We don’t have to become seriously ill!  Let’s instead go back to the health values of ancient times, when people sought to cultivate many levels of health above the absence of disease!

Chinese advanced pulse diagnosis, herbal medicine and acupuncture can offer us a way back to true health and well-being in our bodies, minds and spirits! Come experience it for yourself...receiving an advanced pulse diagnosis session is an eye-opening, empowering experience! We can all reconnect to our inner medicines and take the steps to walk in our optimum health and vitality on this earth.

Eduardo Velasco Valido

AP, LAc, PT (Spain)

For over 20 years, I have dedicated myself to different healing arts. I first started learning Acupuncture 23 years ago, with a French teacher, Bridgitte Gross, who taught me a classical Vietnamese style.  I went on to learning Holistic Kinesiology with Jose Luis Godoy for 3 years.  I then went on to continue my education,  and  majored in Physical Therapy and completed a Masters in Diet and Nutrition, with the FUNIBER Foundation. 

Later, I discovered traditional Thai massage and became fascinated with the techniques and its effectiveness, so I started traveling to Thailand to learn this ancient art.  I learned from the best schools in the country, as well as from various local therapists, especially from a famous healer in Thailand known for his therapeutic arts, Luampo Sombun a Buddhist monk with whom I was fortunate to learn and live with for three years (where I learned about a style of Thai acupressure and Thai herbs). In Spain, I founded the first school of Traditional Thai Massage in Madrid.  Since then I had spent the next 10 years  traveling to Thailand to learn and discover the secrets of Thai therapeutic massage.  I have shared this knowledge with the thousands of students who attended my school, and developed a combination of physical therapy and Thai massage that is uniquely my own. 

In the year 2015 I moved to the United States and reconnected with my deep admiration for Chinese Medicine once again and completed a Masters in Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine from OCOM, Portland, OR.

After graduating, I had the great opportunity to work and learn with world renowned Bob Doane for a good year, seeing more than 80 patients a day.  He is one of the best herbalist and acupuncturists in the country, teaching his unique and effective system of acupuncture and herbal prescription in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. In working with him for over a year, I became an extremely effective acupuncture physician and herbalist, with an  80% success rate in helping my patients.
