Erica McLaughlin


I came to acupuncture over 10 years ago when I was suffering from back pain. The pain came from out of nowhere and was intolerable. The M.D. couldn’t pin point a structural issue and prescribed physical therapy. I did physical therapy for over 6 months and was frustrated that I wasn’t getting better. A coworker of mine introduced me to acupuncture and I have been hooked ever since. My beginning acupuncture treatment plan included weekly treatments, weekly massages, and yoga. The pain went away!!! Along the healing journey I learned that acupuncture can help with more than just pain. Most of the time I seek out holistic remedies including acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, and yoga therapy to help with headaches, colds, stress, and the occasional pain. I was a competitive gymnast for the majority of my childhood and learned early on that Nutrition was important for health and peak performance. I studied Food and Nutrition at Florida State University. At the time I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do career wise because I still had a strong interest in owning a gymnastics club one day. Eight years later I started on the path towards finding my soul’s calling by enrolling in a 200 hour yoga teacher training course at Bliss Yoga. Shortly after completing the course I became a mom and two years later I decided to go after my dreams of helping people with their health goals by pursing a Masters of Acupuncture. Today I am blessed to be the owner of Life Balance Acupuncture and Wellness and I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with you.







Client Testimonials

  • "I am in my early 40's and have been noticing some major changes in my face.  Changes meaning wrinkles, loose skin, blotchy skin, puffy eyes and I could go on.  I had been very curious about what I could do to stop or slow this aging process.  I would ask my friends about what treatments they had received and all the details that go into it (i.e injectables, lasers, chemical peels, etc).  When I would hear their responses and would see some of the outcomes I knew that these treatments were not for me.  I do not like pain and I work outside the home so I could not have my face peeling (shedding) for a week or so.  What is most important to me is that I want to remain looking like my Natural Self and to age gracefully.  I thankfully heard about Cosmetic Acupuncture and decided to give it a try.  The second week I started to see a change in my complexion, my coloring was better and my skin was starting to glow.  After week 3, I saw a tremendous difference in my cheek area where it had sunk in.  That area was bouncing back and filling in.  Week 4, I could not believe my forehead and how the deep wrinkles were softening.  The puffiness that was around my eyes had disappeared and the wrinkles were minimal.  Week 5, everything came together! My skin looks healthier, firmer, fresher and younger.  I love the compliments that I have been getting.  I would highly recommend Erica McLaughlin. Sincerely, Sarah M.
