The best project you’ll ever work on is you!

Hi, I'm Maureen Vargas, but everyone calls me Mo! I have been very lucky to find a career that I am passionate about - the field of acupuncture and holistic medicine. It's incredibly rewarding to go to work each day and help people find relief to a wide spectrum of health issues. I've had a busy family practice for the last 18 years, providing compassionate care for patients of all ages. And, I would love to help you solve your issue.

I do accept most PPO insurance as an out of network provider but I am in network with PPO Blue Shield.


If there's a motivating force in my life, it's to help others feel good.

And that's exactly what inspired me to co-author my book Feng Shui Your Mind. In it, we offer a lighthearted approach to mindfulness by taking Feng Shui to an entirely new level -- to the mind itself.  


Acupuncture on your child? Yes! Most kids find they love acupuncture!

Under my holistic method of pediatric care, I address everything from seasonal colds, allergies and digestive issues to behavioral and emotional challenges of childhood and adolescence. Acupuncture treatments are just the start: We'll also discuss lifestyle and nutritional changes that fit into your child’s needs and current food likes/dislikes. Needle-free treatments thru light stimulation are also very effective for your patients who are not ready for acupuncture needles.
