Welcome to Balanced Meridian!
When your Meridians are balanced, you will experience less pain and better overall health.
Balanced Meridian is an acupuncture healing center serving the Outer Banks, North Carolina. The “Balanced Meridian” name is in direct correlation to the balancing of your Meridians. The Meridians are the twelve channels of life-energy or “qi” that flow throughout the human body. Dr. Michael Brone is a leading provider of modern acupuncture services that will aid in the balancing of those energy paths or Meridians.
Traditional Chinese Healing…
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine along these pathways used for more than 2,500 years, is the insertion of fine strategically and gently placed needles into a person’s body. According to the World Health Organization, it effectively treats a wide range of symptoms, diseases and conditions.
Michael Brone, DC has been one of the leading providers of professional acupuncture services in Eastern North Carolina since 2006. Dr. Brone is also a well-known former provider of chiropractic medical services established in 1992.
Dr. Brone started in each facet of medicine, both traditional and ancient, through his own personal experiences. A prior injury while working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico led him to become a chiropractor. Later he found relief from taking part in treatments from the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture after years of chronic pain.
I had pain in my legs if I walked a half mile or sat in the car for 30 minutes. After acupuncture treatments with Dr. Brone, I am now pain free !!!
I had plantar fasciitis (foot pain) for at least 6 months. I tried physical therapy and cortisone shots with no relief. Three treatments at Balanced Meridian and I could resume my normal activities without pain.
This appointment was one of the most thorough & enjoyable acupuncture visits I’ve experienced. Mike was professional without being cold & very helpful with explanations. My energy level today has been amazing as well as less pain in my jaw. ( tmj issues ) i look forward to working together to maintain health & vitality. I would absolutely recommend this practitioner to anyone seeking to heal & balance themselves. Read more…
Balanced Meridian is a very relaxing and comfortable facility. Dr. Brone is fantastic, and really takes the time to listen and assess your issues. I left without the back pain that I walked in with, and also felt relaxed and energized at the same time. I didn’t know that was possible, but he made it happen! He also made it a point to explain exactly what he was going to do, and gave me a mini education on Acupuncture while he was at it. Highly recommended! Read more…
Dr. Brone does a good job describing what the problem is. And the needles didn’t even hurt at all. Five sessions later not only was my neck and shoulders feeling great, but my sleep was greatly improved too.
A boating accident compressed my lower spine and caused tremendous pain. I use acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga, and massage therapy to keep in shape. If I had to choose only one thing to use it would be acupuncture with Dr. Brone. He gives me the most relief the quickest.
Thanks to Dr. Brone, I was able to decrease my pain symptoms, increase my focus, sleep and activity levels. I really appreciate his wellness approach. He is a great addition to the Outer Banks’ wellness community! I highly recommend him and his caring, empathetic approach to health! Read more…

When a migraine hits me it can last 3 days. I have a job and a 4 y.o. to take care of. My treatments with acupuncture help me deal with the stresses of both. I can’t afford to be knocked out with drugs or lay in bed for days. Thank you Dr. B. !!!
I use acupuncture as part of my wellness regimen. I feel better when I am balanced and have fewer flare-ups of my sciatica

For over four years I’ve suffered with periodic flare ups of what my orthopaedic surgeon diagnosed as ‘digital nerve pain’. The treatment was always ice, elevate and 600mg of ibuprofen…and a week of staying off the foot. Hard to do living in a three story house. Not mention all the rowing and golf I was missing.Fortunately Dr. Brone’s first treatment had me back on my feet the next day. At 73 pain kind of comes with the territory but it doesn’t have to be. His ‘tune ups’ make all the difference. Acupuncture done correctly by a professional such as Doctor Brone can dramatically improve your quality of life…take it from this active old man!!
