To The Point Acupuncture welcomes you!
It is easy to say that there is a common goal that most would agree with. That is…..to live the most vibrant life we can live. Through all the various changes within our course of life comes adaptations and new experiences. How we handle these changes physically, mentally, and emotionally determines the overall outcome of those experiences. Do you ever just feel like you are soaring through life with complete ease? Most of us would say no. Most are either experiencing some form of chronic pain or difficulty regulating emotions, or are just not feeling well. That’s where alternative medicine is beginning to make its most abundant appearance. All too often people are becoming completely tied to their symptoms and are not living the lives we all so desire and deserve.
We want that life for you.
Our team consist of Stacey Kent, Nicole Mougianis, Autumn Snavely, and Jennifer Norfolk. Our paths all crossed within the last few years through our journey of learning and loving this medicine. The idea of collaboration was inspired due to our individual aspirations of providing care and compassion we feel our patients need and deserve. We each have our own unique experiences and passions that allow for a multifaceted approach towards care. We strive to empower our patients to become active participants in their wellness through education, communication and lifestyle adaptations. We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to facilitate healing within you both inside and outside the clinic.
What exactly is Acupuncture you may ask….
Acupuncture is an ancient medicinal modality that encourages the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting thin filiform needles at specific acupuncture points. (Do they hurt? Click here )This effective Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method involves our body’s channels of energy known as Qi (What’s Qi? Click here ) which flow in regular patterns within the body and over its surface. These energy channels are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these “energy rivers” is like a dam that backs up. The channels can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams and reestablish a regular energy flow through the body.
While experiences and outcomes vary person to person, it’s a unique alternative to keep in mind for various conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, back or joint pain, headaches, shingle pain, digestive issues, menstrual issues etc.

Water. A vital resource necessary for the survival of humans, other animals and plants. However, only about 2.5% of the Earth’s water is freshwater, and only 1% of that is accessible to humans in the form of rivers, streams, and lakes. The Olentangy River is a 97 mile long tributary that runs through six counties: Richland, Crawford, Marion, Morrow Delaware, and Franklin. It eventually meets and joins the Scioto River in downtown Columbus. Because of its position on the watershed, the city of Worthington and its residents actively contribute, both positively and negatively, to the health of the watershed. Therefore, it is essential that responsible environmental decisions are practiced by the city’s residents.
Founded in 1997, Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW) is a community education and outreach organization active in the Columbus community for the past twenty years. Their mission is to keep the Olentangy River and its tributaries clean and safe for all to enjoy by focusing on public education, volunteer activities, and coordination with local decision-makers. FLOW is a member-based organization made up of hardworking and dedicated volunteers who care about the health of the Olentangy Watershed. They are active members of the community as well, working with local businesses and schools, such as Cranbrook Elementary School and Ohio State University.
As an education and outreach organization, volunteer events are an important part of FLOW’s programming, and are an opportunity for the public to get involved. FLOW facilitates river cleanups, removing trash and other waste from the Olentangy River and its tributaries to keep the river clean. Additionally, they frequently have programs to remove invasive honeysuckle plants from areas around the watershed, giving native Ohio plants room to grow. This also supports other native flora and fauna that calls the watershed its home.
Through their local partnerships and volunteer events, FLOW strives to be an active member and partner to the communities that sit on the watershed. Through FLOW’s work, they work tirelessly to create a culture of care for the Olentangy and its tributaries, and to create a community of responsible environmental stewards.
