When Simone began treating people in 2013, she couldn't afford 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!
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.

Maggie Flood, L.Ac.
Maggie’s path to Chinese Medicine started almost 15 years ago when she worked for an acupuncturist in New York who specialized in internal herbal medicine. Having received her MSTOM from Pacific College in San Diego, her special interests include women’s health, orthopedics, pain management and mental health. She has worked in many fast-paced community clinic settings, including a mental health and family recovery center in Oceanside, where she treated patients healing from both short and long-term effects of addiction. She believes that every individual is constitutionally different from another, and that every patient has a different path toward wellness. As a practitioner, Maggie strives to assist her patients on their journey to find their own inner healer.
Jonathan Lenahan, L.Ac.
Having grown up in a family that has practiced Chinese Medicine for over 30 years, he has learned the medicine has strong roots to one's connection to nature. During his time in the Pine Barren wilderness he lived intimately off the land by preparing edible and medicinal plants. This experience deeply connected him to a holistic way of living. In this journey, Jonathan realized how to heal his body, mind and spirit and discovered his passion to help others on their own journey to heal themselves. Jonathan's practice of self-cultivation includes Yoga and Meditation, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Nature Skills. Underlying all these practices, Jonathan believes is the point of view that self-knowledge, health and well being are intimately connected with Nature and Spirit. Through the practice of Acupuncture, Jonathan hopes to share this ancient healing power and knowledge with you.
