Marissa Riojas, L.Ac.

Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Doctor of Chinese Medicine

Marissa graduated from Five Branches University with a Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTCM) and a Doctorate of Acupuncture (DAOM). Her specialization in Eastern Psychology & Trauma within the Shen-Hammer paradigm allows her to address psychological-emotional health from a classically-rooted yet contemporary approach.

Marissa is excited to offer Acupuncture and Clinical Herbalism as a part of MotlMD’s integrative model. Marissa treats one patient at a time, allowing her to give genuine single-pointed presence and customized care to each client. As a Certified Meditation Instructor, Marissa enjoys incorporating meditation, breathwork, and energetic-based movement into her sessions so that clients can begin to integrate supportive practices into their every day.

Her treatments also include Vibroacoustic Therapy, which resonates sound through the body to promote greater nervous system relaxation and regulation. Her approach aims to go beyond momentary relief and into supporting the cultivation of healthier norms and rhythms that serve an individual more sustainably.

Marissa finds inspiration and renewal from her daily meditation practice, as well as teaching others to meditate. During her free time, she enjoys various forms of creative expression, such as art & design, writing, intuitive cooking, and adventuring outdoors.
