Jersey Rivers, L.Ac.
Sophia Rivers, Clinic Manager

Meet Jersey:

Hi! My name is Michelle Rivers, and people call me Jersey, which is where I grew up. I have been practicing acupuncture since 2009, and have done somewhere around 45,000 treatments in that time. I'm so happy I can use acupuncture to help people feel better, and I would love to talk with you and find out what we can get done together.

My credentials include:

Active Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, NCCAOM since 2009

Master's of Science in Oriental Medicine, Southwest Acupuncture College, 2009

Active member of the People's Organization of Community Acupuncture since 2007

California L.Ac. since 2010

If you want to get me talking, ask me about film festivals, home cooking, or hot springs, or just bring me a strong cup of coffee and the conversation will get moving!

Meet Sophia:

Hi there! I grew up in Cedar Rapids, then attended the University of Iowa here in Iowa City, moved around a bunch, and now I am delighted to be back in the Heartland, opening this clinic with my spouse, Jersey. 

I have worked in myriad non-profit and education environments, from providing in-home care for people with disabilities to substitute teaching to panning events at a farm animals sanctuary.

I love spending time in nature and am  enjoying the four seasons we experience here in the Midwest.
