Microneedling has its roots in acupuncture (from Latin: acus-needle; punctura: to puncture). Acupuncturists are experienced and well trained with needling the skin. We have Master’s degrees in Chinese Medicine and spend four years in training with acupuncture before taking the state board licensing exam.

Microneedling is a medical procedure. In California, only physicians (most commonly dermatologists) and licensed acupuncturists may perform the procedure.

Nicole Murray, L.Ac, MSTOM, is certified in MicroNeedling. She founded Beach Community Acupuncture in 2009, a thriving community acupuncture clinic that has provided well over 100,000 treatments to date (Nicole has given more than 50,000 acupuncture treatments).

Microneedling is a natural extension of the work we do all day, every day.
