The MAS Staff
Manchester 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. We bring 60+ years of combined clinical experience to you. Along with our fellow co-op members at the People's Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), 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!

Andy Wegman, L.Ac. has been practicing acupuncture for 20 years. He is a graduate of both Stonehill College and The New England School of Acupuncture, both located in Massachusetts.
He is indebted to the many patients, co-workers, friends and family members who have and continue to offer support, opportunities and lessons to him on a regular basis.
He and his wife Karen live in New Boston where they are bossed around by animals named Tony, Isaac and Daisy.
Elizabeth Ropp, L.Ac. has been practicing Community Acupuncture since 2008 and is especially happy to have joined the folks here at MAS back in 2010. Originally, Elizabeth is from Washington, DC and has family roots in the Northeast. She lives with her husband, Eric and her two cats, Annie and Sophia. Elizabeth lives in Manchester, so you may see her biking or walking to and from the clinic and around town. Say hello!
April Shewan, L.Ac. is licensed to practice acupuncture in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and is also a NCCAOM diplomate. She has a BS in Biology from the University of New Hampshire and is a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture.
April is excited to be back in her home state of New Hampshire, as well as being a part of the team at MAS. She lives in Nashua with her wife and two very active children. Her free time is spent planning and planting her overcrowded garden.
Jodie Lemery, L.Ac. is a graduate of University at Albany (BA & MA in French Studies) and New England School of Acupuncture (MAc). She is licensed to practice acupuncture in New Hampshire and Connecticut. Before moving to New Hampshire in December 2017, Jodie worked as an acupuncturist on cruise ships for almost three years. Three contracts, four ships, over forty countries, and thousands of acupuncture treatments - she has some interesting stories! If you see her at MAS, tell her about your favorite local places to go and fun things to do.
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.
Priscilla 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.
Dan Jones has been in the service industry for many years, as a chef and restaurant owner. He feels fortunate to serve at the front desk in his semi-retirement, getting to interact with so many wonderful people who come through the doors at MAS.
