Message from Dr. Joni~​

It has been my life’s greatest honor to serve your health care needs. Being able to assist others in their healing journey has filled my life with purpose and returned many blessings. Over 33 years I have had the pleasure of getting know many of you quite deeply. I now find myself ready to direct my energies closer to home, spending more time with my beloved husband and family as well as increase focus on my own self care.

Thus, I am announcing that I will be retiring from Kailua Acupuncture Clinic effective September 1, 2022.

Message from Dr. Mariya~

It has been an honor to work at Kailua Acupuncture Clinic for the past 16 years. From my beginnings as a patient of Dr. Joni's, to working at the front desk and managing the clinic, to finishing my master’s degree and eventually doctorate, allowing me to offer my acupuncture and healing services to all of you, it has been a journey. A journey which many of you have been on with me and a journey that is moving into a new phase, as I take over as owner of Kailua Acupuncture Clinic.

I look forward to continuing Kailua Acupuncture Clinic’s commitment to our community, our ‘ohana, offering effective, holistic, healing services to all of you. I enjoy working with all ages of patients, treating a wide variety of conditions including chronic pain, women's health, fertility, allergies, digestive issues, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and mental health. It's a privilege to have already partnered with so many of you on your wellness path.

With gratitude & much aloha, Dr. Mariya

Mariya Gold, L.Ac_
