About the Acupuncturist

  • 25+ years of experience

  • Specialized Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease


my name is Mackay Rippey. I started my study of acupuncture in 1989 at the Maryland Institute of Integrative Health and have been in practice for more than 25 years.

Over the years my patients have taught me a lot and I don’t practice like most practitioners. You will either love that or decide to see another practitioner. It’s up to you.

Please take a moment and request an information packet. It explains  all the details you need to make an informed decision about starting acupuncture with me.


P.S. That’s me getting ready to enjoy dinner on the floating seafood restaurant in Phuket, Thailand. My hair normally doesn’t stand up like that. It was windy!
