Timothy D. Foley, M.S.A.O.M., L.Ac., graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2008. While in his last year of study, Timothy traveled to China and the Zhejiang Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital in Huang Zhou, where he observed community style acupuncture as the standard way of treating patients. After starting his private practice he believed that community style acupuncture could work in Ithaca and is now very excited to offer it’s benefits to the people of the Finger Lakes region.
Tim is also a musician, having sang and played the guitar in numerous bands. He was born in Chestnut Ridge, NY and he attended college and received a B.S. in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana in Missoula in 2000. Coleen and Tim are married and reside in Ithaca with their son, Brennan, and daughter, Amelia.
Coleen Osborne – Foley, M.S.A.O.M., L.Ac., graduated from Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at NYCC in 2008. Coleen established a private practice with Timothy D. Foley for two and a half years. After volunteering as an acupuncturist at the Ithaca Free Clinic, Coleen realized there are a lot of community members that do not have access to consistent and continuous treatment. After hearing about the Community Acupuncture model, she thought it would be a great fit for Ithaca.
Coleen grew up in New York, on Long island and attended Hofstra University receiving her B.S. in Geology in 2001. She loves all the outdoor opportunities Ithaca has to offer and has discovered new found love for art (and would love to be able to do it!) while working for a period of time at a local art gallery on The Ithaca Commons.

Megan Bell Mirshahi, M.S.A.O.M., L. Ac.
Megan graduated from Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2019. During school, she spent hundreds of hours treating patients in a variety of clinical settings, including 6 months in a Veterans Affairs hospital. She worked in the Seneca Falls Health Center’s Oriental Medicine Dispensary for three years, assembling raw, granule, and prepared herbal formulas for patients and alumni across the country. In her 2nd year, she traveled to Hangzhou, China to observe TCM in hospital and off-site settings, during which time she gained a deeper understanding of the benefits of increased regularity/frequency of TCM treatments. Experiencing an environment where acupuncture, herbal therapy, and bodywork are easily accessible further motivated her to seek out the community acupuncture model.
Megan works with her husband, Dr. Kamran Mirshahi D.C., in their private practice, and strongly believes private and community models can work together to provide consistent patient care. In her free time, she is either outside, or wishing she was outside.
