Testimonials for Elizabeth McMillan“For a couple of decades, I have struggled with increasing weight gain. Every attempt at weight loss, and there have been many, failed. You name it I tried it. About four months ago I ran into a friend who I hadn’t seen in a good while. I was amazed to see that she had lost well over 100 pounds if not more. It was through her testimony about your weight loss plan that I felt compelled to schedule an appointment. Of course, I was skeptical at the time. But after 4 months I have lost almost 50 pounds, 4 dress sizes and I feel amazing. I hate to call this a weight loss plan as what I have discovered is a whole new way of life. The nutrition plan couple with the knowledgeable, loving and encouraging accountability of Elizabeth McMillan, has changed my life as well as my thought process not to mention spending habits when grocery shopping. This is the first plan that I truly feel is something I can apply to my life each and everyday. It is doable, manageable, affordable, educational and life transforming.” – Kathy B “There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for all that Elizabeth has done for me. Her protocol for treating Lyme disease and its complications works. I have made huge progress on my road to healing, thanks to her knowledge and expertise. I appreciate the time she takes for her clients, finding the answers to our questions. Thanks, Elizabeth, and God bless you.” – Sarah “I’m a 38 year old single mom. I noticed over the last year or so I was getting more anxious, more panicky about every day life. I was losing energy, I was getting tired, very tired but couldn’t sleep. I wore myself thin. I started losing my hair, I started having joint pain so badly I just stayed in bed. I was a emotionally wreck. I cried for days, about everything. I visited my medical doctor for the last year or so and never found answers. She informed me that I would just need to get used to living my life with anxiety. It’s all in my head. And suggested antidepressants. Which I never took, reading the side effects give me more anxiety then I could handle. Some side effects were deadly. I prayed for God to please give me wisdom, I prayed often. I had a very supportive family and church. My friend introduced me to Elizabeth McMillan. She was the wisdom I had prayed for. At my first appointment I was heard, I felt like a person not a number, I felt understood. I had answers. I was encouraged and I was thankful. I’ve been blessed in many ways by McMillan. I want to personally thank you for being real. Thank you for listening when I needed help. Today my anxiety is gone, and feel great! God is so Good!!!” – Betsy K.

Virginia Mitchell, M.Ac., L.Ac.,
Education - Master of Acupuncture degree from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, Columbia, Maryland in 1994
Specialization - Acupuncture, Acupressure, Pain Management, Fertility Support, Stress Reduction
Listed in Northern Virginia Magazine as the Best Acupuncturist
Virginia Mitchell is board certified in acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and holds the third license granted by the state of Virginia to practice acupuncture. She is also a trained massage therapist focusing on acupressure and zero balancing. Complementing her body-mind studies, Virginia completed a two-year program in spiritual direction through the Shalem Institute in Washington, DC, in 1989.
Growing up in Alabama, in a family of doctors, Virginia always knew the value of good medical care. It wasn’t until she experienced acupuncture that she found a form of medicine that fit her gifts and personality.
“The breadth and elegance of acupuncture, its ability to address such a wide range of conditions simultaneously and its emphasis on treating the individual really drew me in. Even now, after providing acupuncture for over 20 years, I marvel at what can be done!” – Virginia Mitchell
- Autoimmune disorders
- Back, Neck or Shoulder pain
- Sports injuries
Training in Battlefield Acupuncture has helped her reduce pain for clients where nothing else has worked.
Great sleep, no headache, no pain. Feeling great. Thank you. You make the magic happen.” – Anna Vasiento
“I have been seeing Virginia Mitchell for a while now, for acupuncture treatment of different ailments with impressive results. In particular, my seasonal allergies have improved to the point that with a monthly maintenance session I am free of allergies for the first time in my life. These allergy outbursts had increased over time in my life. They have annoyed me during my trips and at home. Now I am free of them, no matter where I go and without medication affecting my stomach. Very satisfied.” – Juan T
“Virginia successfully treated me with acupuncture for post-herpetic nerve pain following an episode of shingles more than 5 years ago. I continue to see her regularly to ensure there is no recurrence and to address other health issues. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She tailors each session to meet my needs by asking questions about my health. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to try acupuncture.” – Jen Welham
“I have been receiving Acupuncture from Virginia for over 2 years. I suffer from a great deal of joint pain as well as stress from multiple chronic conditions. After a treatment I’m very much pain and stress free. I sleep better and am able to do more. Sometimes this lasts days, to a week. I highly recommend Virginia for Acupuncture. She is capable, genuinely cares about her patients and treats all with respect. Acupuncture is a wonderful non-invasive way to treat and heal your body.” – Anna Vasiento
“I have had the pleasure of experiencing Virginia Mitchell’s amazing acupuncture treatments for over 25 years, adjusting me into the seasons as well as through deep grief over the unexpected loss of my youngest brother. She is the most caring and thoughtful practitioner I have ever known and I always leave the session feeling totally refreshed, relaxed, renewed, and grateful. Often times I will ask her to read/explain the descriptions of the “points” she selected to address during my treatment — and I always find them to be inspiring and on target. I am blessed to have found Virginia and recommend her to everyone.” – Lynn J
