Our Story

When Founder Dr. Simone began treating people in 2013, she couldn’t afford to get acupuncture herself!  She also noticed many of her private clients stopped getting the dosage of acupuncture needed to get better because it was cost prohibitive.  After working at a community clinic, she realized this model was a loving and effective way of offering this highly demanded service at a price people can afford without jeopardizing quality of service and results.  Plus, studies have shown that healing benefits are magnified when in a group setting!


We are proud to offer unparalleled acupuncture sessions at affordable prices so you can not just get well but stay well.  Our master-level licensed Acupuncturists are skilled pain management specialists and have successfully served thousands of people with conditions ranging from not just pain, but also reproductive health, digestive disorders, chronic conditions and mental- emotional issues.


What is Community Acupuncture?

We treat multiple people in a calming, safe, and clean healing space.  This cuts cost for you.  Treatments can be as low as $23 a session.  Generally, you can anchor a change for acute conditions in 4-6 treatments.  Chronic conditions may take 6-10 treatments to see a change.  We encourage prevention of illness and invite you to treat yourself for monthly attunements to stay well.

Dr. Simone Ressner

Founder & Chief Empowerment Officer

Inspired by her own healing journey after an excursion in India in 2007, Simone started teaching  various styles of yoga and learning Chinese Medicine in San Diego.  She believes the complexity of the world is vastly requiring the holistic integration of the wheels of healing arts that are available to us today.  After studying with shamans and reiki masters on her seven month sojourn through Central and South America in 2013, she now skillfully incorporates Chinese Medicine, herbal medicine, massage, reiki, and shamanic healing into her practice with wonderful results.  Fueled by her passion for the power of collective healing, she birthed Source Empowered Wellness Center to aid people on their path to establishing health as a lifestyle.  She believes it is everyone’s right to affordable holistic and natural care.
