About Cristina

Healing Roots Acupuncture and Queer Dance Project are the brain child of Cristina Michaels. Healing Roots Acupuncture brings 25 years of healing arts experience inside the doors of this complementary medical practice. This office offers a variety of treatment with sliding scales and hardship applications for those who may request it. Queer Dance Project was born out of the inherent discrimination within the dance industry. Diversity and inclusion are at the root of these two businesses.
