About our staff
Dalit Waller, L.Ac., OTR/L
Acupuncturist and Harvard Square Community Acupuncture Clinic Founder
Dalit first heard about community acupuncture while she was an acupuncture student and she knew that she wanted to practice this way to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to as many people as possible.
Dalit is a graduate of The New England School of Acupuncture, licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine, and nationally certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine(NCCAOM).
Dalit has studied both Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture. She has practiced community style acupuncture since 2010 at Roxbury Community Acupuncture (no longer open) and at Open Space Acupuncture in Somerville, MA.
Dalit has travelled to Mexico and Uganda with The Global Acupuncture Project to teach acupuncture. She continues to work with this international organization to increase access to acupuncture for those with limited access to health care.
Dalit worked with adults for 25 years years as an Occupational Therapist. She worked at the West Roxbury VA Medical Center, McLean Hospital, Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital, Youville Hospital, Neville Manor, The Cambridge VNA, the Cambridge Somerville Health Alliance, Mount Auburn Home Care, and the VNA of Boston.
When she is not sticking people with needles, Dalit loves to ride her bike, cook yummy food, hang out with friends, and howl at the moon. She is no stranger to downward facing dog.
Nate Langford, Lic.Ac. M.Ac., Dipl. Ac.
Nate is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Massachusetts and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Nate is a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture where he completed a Master’s in Chinese and Japanese acupuncture styles.
In addition to working in general practice at HSQCA, Nate sees adult and pediatric oncology patients at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center. He also continues to pursue advanced training in acupuncture strategies for oncology patients through the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Nate served for a number of years as an acupuncture program faculty member and clinical supervisor at the New England School of Acupuncture, as well as providing treatment through Fenway Health's acupuncture detox program.
Nate is something of a rolling stone, so when not attending to patients, he’s usually walking around town or gallivanting through the countryside. On certain weekdays you might find him holed up in the Buddhist Temple Room at the MFA, chipping away at haiku.
Mira T. Stanchak, L.Ac.
Mira has been interested in a natural approach to health and living since she was a young adult. After completing a Bachelor’s degree from Boston University in Environmental Science, she moved to California where she attended the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, and fell in love with acupuncture and herbal medicine. She graduated with a Masters of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2010 and has since been working in both private and community acupuncture settings.
She strongly believes that any health condition, whether it be mental, physical, spiritual or emotional, can be improved or completely resolved with acupuncture, herbs and/or other natural health modalities that address the person as a whole.
In addition to her work at HSQCA, Mira also practices acupuncture at South Shore Community Acupuncture in Quincy.
Outside of work, Mira enjoys spending time outdoors, with friends, traveling, seeing live music, doing yoga, trying new recipes and reading research articles on various health conditions and acupuncture studies.
