Graduated from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in June of 2003 with a Masters of Science Degree in Acupuncture. I am currently working on my Doctorate of Acupuncture, attending Pacific College of Oriental Medicine‘s transitional doctorate program.
Diplomate of Acupuncture
A Diplomate of Acupuncture is an acupuncturist who is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®). It is a considerable professional achievement to earn the designation Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM). NCCAOM certification indicates to employers, patients, and peers that one has met national standards for the safe and competent practice of acupuncture as defined by the acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) profession.

NYS Licensed Massage Therapist
Educated at the Swedish Institute in Manhattan, I am a NYS licensed massage therapist since 1994. I may provide a 5-10 minute local massage to an injured area during acupuncture treatment. However an accomplished, experience staff LMT will provide 30, 45, 60, and 90 minute massages.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:
- Pain reduction
- Stress and tension relief
- Increased energy levels
- Stronger digestion
- Relief from bad habits and addictions
- Greater sense of overall health and well-being
An experienced LMT will provide a massage that is specific to your individual needs whether it’s medical massage for an injury, deep tissue, or relaxation.
Using Young Living Essential Oils along with traditional massage, this soothing technique promotes alignment, balance and stress relief for every system of the body.
