Maternity Leave

Thank you for your interest in scheduling with me! I’m currently out of the office on maternity leave until next year. I’m planning to return to all my wonderful patients in 2020.

You can contact me at I will be checking email on a limited basis during my leave.

I look forward to seeing you when I return :-)

Given the right guidance and tools, the human body has an extraordinary capacity to heal. 

I believe too many people needlessly suffer from illness and pain.  I've spent more than a decade dedicated to education and patient care in both Eastern and Western medicine. As a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, it's my privilege to work alongside my patients to help them achieve their optimal level of wellness.


Wow, what an incredible experience. The office was pristine and the treatment was profound. I walked out of there more relaxed with a clearer head and Joanna was professional and quite thorough in her assessment. I've experienced hundreds of acupuncture treatments in the last 10 years, all I can say is this treatment ranked among the top. Thanks Montoya Medicine!!!!

When I met JoAnna for the first time, her warm and friendly personality immediately made me comfortable and I began to ask her to specific questions related to my health needs. She was extremely knowledgeable and had the experience that ultimately helped me make the decision to begin treatment...and WOW was I surprised! JoAnna has an ability to understand a patient's needs from a whole body perspective. Though I initially went to see her for a specific health issue, ultimately she helped me in more ways than I even anticipated. JoAnna is truly gifted as a healer and simply a joy to be around. I would wholeheartedly recommend JoAnna to any one of my friends or family.

My first ever acupuncture session was at Montoya Medicine. It was amazing!! I was always afraid to try acupuncture because I am scared of being poked with needles and thought it would hurt. JoAnna, was very nice. She had a consult with me first to find out my problem areas and walk me through the process as well as what I can do after the session to help ease pain in my problem areas. During the session I was definitely at ease, I have never been so relaxed. I get a lot of massages and have only experienced a zen like this one other time. The calmness and relaxed feeling lasted well into the night and I slept like baby. Now I am afraid to try other acupuncturist because Montoya Medicine treated me so well. I guess I will just have to come back for more sessions.
