Monica is originally from China, where she started this passion at a very young age. She has been practicing acupuncture for over 20 years and has been practicing in the US for 15 years now. As some of you may know, there are many schools of Acupuncture and Monica has practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the 5 elements of Acupuncture, and is also experienced in Japanese acupuncture.

She is extremely passionate about Acupuncture and says, "For me it's not just a job, it's my favorite hobby because you can treat and help so many different things- like weight loss, digestive problems, snow shoveling back pain, allergies, depression, and many issues."

As a licensed acupuncturist in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Emily has been providing acupuncture and Chinese Herbology services to the greater Washington D.C. area for over a decade.


"I struggled with infertility for years. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my late 20s after having very irregular menstrual cycles. My husband and I knew we wanted to have a child so we started trying right after we were married. After two years we sought professional help from infertility experts. For the following three years we underwent diagnostic tests, some of them quite painful and invasive. Artificial insemination failed, as did two IVF cycles. Now six years into our journey, we wanted to attempt one more IVF cycle before giving up our hopes of having a biological child. I happened to read a post on an infertility message board about acupuncture. Not knowing what it was all about, much less having tried it before, I decided it was worth looking into. A quick Google search for "infertility licensed acupuncture in northern Virginia" led me to Emily Hatt! From the beginning, Emily's approach was supportive and she educated me on every step. Our sessions started about a month before the IVF cycle kicked off, and continued throughout the process: on milestone dates like egg retrieval day and embryo transfer day, as well as in between. Emily was one of the first people I called when we heard we were pregnant, and again when we had that initial ultrasound and saw that beating heart for the first time. I remained her patient until after I delivered my beautiful daughter in July 2008. In my heart, I know that acupuncture made the difference between our first 2 unsuccessful cycles and the 3rd. How it works? I'm not sure. But I know that under the supportive, compassionate care of Emily Hatt, we realized our dream of having a baby."

"Emily’s acupuncture treatments for my chronic pain has been life changing! After 18 months of pain and no answers from doctors, Emily prescribed a treatment program to address the root cause. After several weeks, I started to notice improvement and after a few months I was completely pain free. The results were incredible and wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t lived it. Emily is very detail oriented and professional, always focused on total health and what it’ll take to improve any ailment that’s bothering me. She’s treated a number of other issues following the first big one – with much success. I would recommend anyone to go see her today to get an assessment!"

"I have post-herpetic neuralgia. Medications and injections did not take care of the pain. Someone suggested that I try acupuncture. I found Emily. She did research on my condition and explained to me what acupuncture would do. I was hesitant, but since nothing else seemed to be working, I decided to "give it a try." It worked! The pain has not completely gone away, but it is at a point where it is just a nuisance."

"We spent the first 2 years of our marriage trying to have a baby. After a 2 rounds of IVF, one resulting in a miscarriage and one failed pregnancy, I decided to try acupuncture. I was skeptical at first, mostly because I didn’t understand it. How could these little needles help me sustain a healthy pregnancy?"

"I was diagnosed with PCOS which makes it very difficult to get pregnant naturally. At the age of 37, I started acupuncture with Emily a few months before my 3rd round of IVF. And while I didn’t necessarily feel “different”, my doctor noted that he saw a big improvement in the quality of my eggs. Not only was my pregnancy successful and thankfully non-eventful, I didn’t suffer from hyper ovarian stimulation syndrome like I did with my first round of IV. After a few hours of labor at 38.5 weeks (my water broke 2 days after an acupuncture session to induce labor), I had a healthy baby boy."

"Not only did Emily help me through my first pregnancy but when we decided to try again, we were blessed with twins. At 40 years old, there are many potential complications with pregnancies, especially with multiples. I am confident that the acupuncture helped me sustain a healthy, easy pregnancy. At 38W I was scheduled for a C section and gave birth to a girl, 6 lbs 12 oz and a boy, 7 lbs 2 oz. I would recommend Emily to any woman struggling with infertility. She is passionate about her trade, knowledgeable, committed and most of all I felt very comfortable during my treatments."

"I have been seeing Emily for over a year now. I started acupuncture to heal a shoulder injury, I've continued because I see the benefit in my overall health. Emily is genuinely dedicated to healing what ails me. Headaches, nausea, stress, fatigue, anything that I mention, she can handle. I intend to have a long-term relationship with Emily. I look forward to my appointments and always feel great when I leave!"

"I have been seeing Monica for acupuncture for over 1 year and she is phenomenal at finding my problem areas and tailoring treatment. She takes the time and put in the effort to try and truly help you. I have tried a ton of other treatments - this is what helps me best. I can highly recommend her!"

"Hello my experience with acupuncture has been surprisingly well. I was a little skeptical at the beginning but the results from the treatment speaks for itself. My range of movement has been all around better. I'd like to thank Monica for doing a great job."

"I have been going to Monica since November 2016 for multiple symptoms. I was experiencing backache, soreness in the ribs, cramping, bloating and most recently allergy headaches. Her services have done wonders for my life. I have felt better over the last 6 months than I have in the last 15 years. I had been to so many doctors over the years who would prescribe medicines that didn't work. I wanted to try to more holistic approach and glad I did. I am so thankful to have found Monica. My daily life is so much more enjoyable."
