The MAS Staff

jumping_wedding_shotManchester Acupuncture Studio is a group practice opened in June 2007 in Manchester and June of 2013 in Nashua as a way to offer an alternative to high costs of acupuncture in our communities.  Along with our fellow co-op members at the People's Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) and at POCA Tech, we work to educate, employ, encourage, train and mentor people who wish to make acupuncture available to anybody in the U.S. who is interested, regardless of means or insurance coverage.  Join us!

Jennifer Woolf, LAc.  is licensed to practice acupuncture in New Hampshire and is also an NCCAOM Diplomate.  We'd like to welcome her back to MAS after directing Concord Community Acupuncture for several years.  She brings 16+ years of clinical experience, a great sense of humor and an easy going way about her. We are VERY happy Jennifer is joining the MAS team once again, and know you will be too.

(For those who've been paying close attention, you may remember Jennifer as part of the MAS staff back a few years ago, from 2008-2009)



MAS Front Desk Staff


Nancy Berry is a retired psychotherapist who occasionally during working days, fantasized about being a receptionist.  This dream is now a reality.  Her retirement has been made vastly better thanks to all the people met here at Manchester Acupuncture Studio over the years.





priscillaPriscilla Ledoux is a Manchester native who loves to work hard to make your visit at the clinic a terrific one.





Carla Bryant moved from Indiana to Manchester in January 2010.  After spending her last 40+ years as a Hoosier, she enjoys the laid back people and way of life in New England.  She is also intrigued by the different types of animals and plants she is encountering.  When Carla is not at MAS, you can often find her cooking, reading, taking in Broadway plays in NYC and spending time with family.




charlotteaShe may look sweet and helpful, but Charlotte Ashburner packs a bite.  Earlier this week, Charlotte attended a terrific surprise birthday party followed up by some nice, quiet quilting.




 Jena Marie DiPinto is a musician - pianist and singer - and music teacher who lives in Nashua with her artist-surfer husband, Dave (not pictured) and their adorable therapy-certified circus-trick-trained mini schnauzer, Maia (who insisted on being in the picture). She spends her free time working on their new house, practicing yoga, making things (knitting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, photography, you name it!), driving the back roads of New England to discover new-old treasures, camping on the seacoast or reading a book at the beach with Maia by her side while Dave surfs the rocky New Hampshire coastline. When she asked her friends to contribute to this bio via social media, they insisted that she mention her wicked sense of humor and ability to make them laugh and feel better, even in tough situations. She believes in the power of community and loves to preach the gospel of the needle whenever possible.

A long-time MAS patient, Norm Selander-Carrier joined the front-desk staff after he retired from his day job. He enjoys the interaction with the folks who come in to the clinic. His passionate hobby is growing orchids.   If you find one on the desk, ask him about it!

Ken inside
Ken Marchand likes the chair at the front desk. However his favorite chair is in the treatment room.
When not working Ken enjoys spending time with his family, including pets, reading and writing. As an avid reader, Ken mixes up his favorite quotes all the time for example he is certain Maya Angelou wrote "may the force be with you" while Yoda stated "when people show you who they are, believe them the first time."
