Veda Cafazzo, Yoga Instructor

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and moved to Columbus in my 20's.  I attended Ohio State, studied zoology, and graduated with an M.S.in Zoology.  My careers began at Ohio State, and I first practiced yoga through the OSU Creative Arts Program, but didn't stick with it.  Fast forward about 20 years, and see me getting down-sized and having a lot more time on my hands.  I took a part-time job, and began practicing yoga again.  A bad bicycle accident stopped me a few years later, but after PT, I started yoga yet again, and discovered yin yoga.  This low and slow form of yoga was exactly what I needed to heal, stretch, and feel like my body belonged to me again!  Following five years of practice, I earned my RYT-200 because I wanted to bring yoga, particularly yin yoga, to others.  I have since been teaching yin (and other types) of yoga for 7 years, have continued my studies, and have grown in confidence and knowledge.  I want to introduce yin yoga to you!
When I'm not "yoga-ing," I like reading, gardening, cooking, going to the movies, and traveling, sometimes with and sometimes without my dog, Sam.

Nicole Mougianis, LAc

www.tothepointacu.conicole@tothepointacu.co, or 614-270-4735

Hello Thanks for visiting our page! Let me guess- you are searching for a solution to a problem? Maybe it’s stress, anxiety, depression, or pain? I know the list could go on. Well, like you I too went on a search a few years back. I was looking for a solution to my mounting stress level. Don’t get me wrong-some stress isn’t always a negative thing. In fact, I think a healthy amount can keep us motivated. But in my situation, I was not coping with it well. I felt sickly, unbalanced, and even guilty about it. I had heart palpitations, heart burn, digestive issues, headaches, and even experienced a panic attack. I knew I could not go on like that and in my search to feel better I finally stumbled upon acupuncture. I thought- Needles?! Maybe a reaction like your own. My interest in the mind body connection, which dates back many years and inspired me to study psychology for my undergrad, encouraged to me to pursue studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Receiving my acupuncture license was such an exciting accomplishment. Acupuncture provides an alternative in which compassion, sympathy, and care come first. I am honored and thankful to have the opportunity to help people regain their balance and wellness.

Autumn Snavely, LAc, LSW

www.tothepointacu.com, autumn@tothepointacu.com, 614-270-4735

My path began as a Social Worker where I provided mental and behavioral health therapy to youth and families with the use of horses. I also worked for a few years in the substance abuse prevention field. I knew from those experiences that there had to be an alternative way to treat mental health, substance abuse; While also understanding the magnitude of our current opioid epidemic I became determined to help individuals find natural pain relief with the hope of decreasing the possibility of opioid addiction later on.
My previous work with children as well as having a son of my own and wanting the best for his well being, has instilled a newer passion to help children heal naturally whether it’s common childhood illnesses, depression, anxiety, or digestive issues. All while providing them a safe and comfortable place offering pain free modalities.
So whether you are dealing with chronic pain, fatigue, emotional distress…whatever it may be; my goal is to help you reach optimal wellness. Working with what where you are and where you want to be. 
I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes and inspiration for my work… “The realization that we are all basically the same human beings who seek happiness and try to avoid suffering is very helpful in developing a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood; a warm feeling of love and compassion for others.” – Dalai Lama
