About Michele


Michele Finley, Dipl. Ac, LAc., RN, Skin Care Specialist

National Board Certified in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and Registered Nurse Licensed in New Jersey and New York State.

Michele Finley has a Masters of Science level in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine and is a Diplomate in Acupuncture, as issued by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and has been active in the field of medicine and wellness her entire professional life. She is highly trained in the field of aesthetics and skin care and combines all of her knowledge towards providing exceptional health services.

As a Registered Professional Nurse (RN), Michele Finley spent many years at the bedside in the critical care units at St. Vincent’s Hospital & Medical Center, NYC, NY.  It was during that early period of her career as an intensive care nurse that she became acutely aware of the need to give something more – or perhaps something different – to her patients.  While working full time at the hospital she attended the Swedish Institute of Massage and Traditional Medicine and earned her degree in massage therapy.  Michele understood the need for “high touch” in addition to “high tech”, and was able to successfully incorporate the two approaches into her bedside nursing. Her investigation into integrated healing arts became a life-long commitment, as she went on to maintain a successful massage therapy practice in NYC, specializing in neuromuscular conditions of the face, head and neck. Understanding the fine art of facial esthetics and corrective skin treatments proved to be a natural progression of her work.  The addition of Acupuncture to Michele’s list of treatment modalities further provides her clients with a holistic tool, helping them return to their body’s natural balanced state of health.

 Michele Finley, Dipl. Ac, LAc, RN, offers exceptional health services in the privacy of the Gingerbread House in Airmont, NY in Rockland County in the Town of Ramapo near Suffern NY  on the Bergen/Rockand border.  For over 20 years, she has served the Rockland, Orange and Bergen communities in her private practice. Her lifelong vocation to the healing arts has extended into her commitment to community as an educator and frequent presenter on a variety of health and wellness topics. Additionally, she is an active member in good standing with the International Relief Effort of Acupuncturists Without Borders. She has trained extensively for this humanitarian effort to provide immediate relief and recovery to communities in crisis from disaster, a skill set that proved exceptionally helpful in numerous situation and  disasters including the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. She continues to reach out to the community volunteering her services as a public speaker, educator, and health care provider.
