Your Wellbeing is Our Priority

Dr. Shadi Arbabian, D. Ac. , L. Ac.

Dr. Arbabian earned her bachelor’s degree in Public Health from University of Maryland in order to pursue a career in health care services and help provide positive changes in her community. Having earned her Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Acupuncture has given her over 3000 hours of combined theoretical and clinical knowledge and experience to provide care for her patients. The event that sparked her intense passion for studying Chinese Medicine was when she began working at the HIV/AIDS research center. The work experience there confirmed Dr. Arbabian’s interest in serving individuals and it provided her with an opportunity to spend one on one time with patients. Dr. Arbabian found a lot of value in speaking with patients and spending time to hear their needs while supporting their journey. There she learned to be an active listener and took the first step in becoming a healer by listening to patients and hearing their needs. It was then that Dr. Arbabian learned about words as medicine to guide patients through their wellness journey.

Dr. Arbabian practices in two styles of Acupuncture: Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Five Element Acupuncture has a strong root in balancing emotions and tending the spirit, TCM looks more at balancing patterns of disharmony.  Both Five Element Acupuncture and TCM treatments relieves pain and heal what needs tending by balancing the Yin and the Yang on the three levels of body, mind and spirit. Through treatments the smooth flow of energy or “Qi” is restored. At HeavenlyWell, Dr. Arbabian addresses patient’s needs holistically in order to treat the root cause of a disease rather than the branch, which is the symptom. At HeavenlyWell we believe “Healing Begins Within” and this is what Dr. Arbabian aims to achieve for her patients to accompany them best in their journey to self healing and wellness.

What We Provide

Our Services

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture can increase facial tone, decrease puffiness around the eyes, as well as bring more firmness to sagging skin, enhance the radiance of the complexion, and flesh out sunken areas. Customarily, fine lines will disappear, and deeper ones will be reduced.
