Mariah Van Horn, L. Ac., Dipl. Ac.
Mariah joined Acupuncture Atlanta in the Fall of 2010. She is nationally board certified in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Mariah received her four-year Master’s Degree in Science and Traditional Oriental Medicine from one of the most respected colleges in the United States, The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago and received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Kansas. After completing her degree, she was excited to return to Atlanta to start her practice.
Acupuncture is successful at treating a wide variety of disorders and Mariah enjoys using the medicine to address her patients varying concerns. Her particular fields of interest include applying Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture to the treatment of women’s health and fertility, stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, digestive issues, asthma, allergies and pain. She believes that natural therapies provide the least invasive route of treatment for many conditions and that these modalities should be tried first before turning to more invasive procedures.
Manjusha Ladha, L. Ac.
Manjusha Ladha is a nationally certified NCCAOM diplomate in acupuncture and licensed to practice in Georgia by the Medical Board of Georgia. Manju graduated from The Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in Boone, North Carolina. Jung Tao is the first and one of only three schools in the US teaching classical Chinese medicine which is grounded primarily in the ancient Taoist tradition and philosophy. She completed a four year program at Jung Tao including a full year of clinical internship. She also has a Master’s Degree in Biology from the University of Jabalpur in India.
After a successful career in business, Manju’s interest in health and healing led her to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. As a holistic practitioner she addresses a wide range of disharmonies. Some examples of the conditions she treats include headaches, migraines, depression, anxiety, women’s health issues including infertility, auto immune and degenerative disorders, hormonal imbalances, impotence, digestive issues, arthritis, muscular stiffness and pain. In addition to acupuncture she uses techniques like cupping, guasha and electrical stimulation of acupuncture points. She also incorporates Tuina- a form of Chinese body work- when necessary and suggests herbs and supplements for a more focused treatment.
Manju believes in the body’s intrinsic ability to heal from within and the power of acupuncture in alleviating symptoms and creating the energetic balance necessary for optimum health. She meditates daily in the Yogic tradition and practices the inner martial arts of Tai Chi Quan. The practice of meditation and Tai Chi allows her to be more in tune with her own energetic core and helps bring an intuitive element to her acupuncture treatments.
