High Point Health pllc is dedicated to meeting each patient’s individual needs. Our mission is to compassionately help as many people as possible maintain their health and well-being, in a supportive environment, through nutrition, acupuncture, and other natural therapies, without the use of unnecessary drugs of surgeries.

Located in the High Point neighborhood of West Seattle.

Miranda offers patients the medical treatments deemed the most effective for their condition, including acupuncture, Acutonics®, medical massage, Nutrition Response Testing (using kinesiology learned in Dr. Ulan's advanced clinical training) and Chinese nutritional and herbal therapies. These can be very effective in healing a range of disorders and in relieving pain. They are also useful in prevention (preventing stroke, diabetes, heart attack, mental illness, and degenerative disease), promoting well-being, and generally making people feel better.

In treating each patient as a partner and as a whole, integrated human being, and by communicating with the patient through each step of the healing process, Miranda works to strengthen and balance the mind, spirit and body.

Her "alternative" medicine master's degree and nutrition training gave her tools for life. Fine-tuning the handling of emotional issues, environmental influences such as toxins or immune stressors, poor regulation and trauma's chronic effects on the physical and emotional body is her specialty.
