Holistic Pain Solutions

Patient Experience

New patients begin their care at HPS with a 30-minute consultation.  Together, one of HPS's practitioners and the patient develop a treatment plan that fits that patient's budget, schedule, and goals. If time allows, the practitioner may provide some short pain-relief procedures during the first visit. Treatment plans may span as little as one week to as long as 3 months, and will usually include supplements and self-care practices in addition to in-office procedures. Treatment plans can range in price from as little as $30 to more than $500 depending on the types of services, frequency of services, and length of time covered by the treatment plan. After a plan is developed, patients can opt to purchase the entire treatment plan up front for a 20% discount off regular pricing, or may elect to pay as they go. After treatment plans are completed, patients have a follow-up consultation to discuss their satisfaction and determine future goals. Patients who complete their plans and wish to maintain their results may consider joining the Optimal Wellness Circle.

Jacqueline Milliken, MAcOM, Dipl.OM, LAc

Licensed Acupuncturist

Jacqueline "Jackie" Milliken is a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) who received her Master of

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from AOMA Graduate School of

Integrative Medicine in 2015, and her BA in Psychology from the University of

Akron in 2011. Jackie's first encounter with holistic medicine was when she received

relief from a sports injury with acupressure, and benefited from nutritional

supplements for health issues in 2006. However, her hometown's opioid epidemic was the catalyst that

caused her to pursue a career in integrative medicine. Jackie has worked as an acupuncturist in Australia where she treated a variety of acute and chronic orthopedic, neurological, autoimmune, and vestibular conditions. She eventually returned to the United States where she continues to expand her skill set. Jackie joined Holistic Pain Solutions in 2019 because she values a multimodal approach to health problems, patient-centric care methods, and addressing root causes of disease in addition to alleviating symptoms. While Jackie has extensive training in traditional Chinese medicine, pulse diagnosis, sports injury acupuncture, and herbal medicine, she also has obtained specialty certifications in the areas of cupping, distal needling, and Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture.

Her clinical specialties include:

  • Sports medicine
  • Pain management
  • Orthopedic health
  • Neurological health
  • Mental health
  • Cosmetic treatments

When not in the clinic, Jackie enjoys exercising and weight lifting, hiking, kayaking,

dancing, and spoiling her dog, Professor Chaos.
