Did you know that the VA, through the Veterans Choice Program, covers acupuncture? They do! And I am a provider.
Veterans who receive any care at all through the VA may be entitled to acupuncture treatment paid for by the Veteran's Choice Program.
I have successfully treated common problems among veterans such as pain, digestive problems, mood disorders, and PTSD to name a few. So if you are a veteran who suffers from any aches, pains, or disabilities, talk to your local VA healthcare provider about getting acupuncture.
I have a M.S. in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA and I am a Certified Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I have done advanced training in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Shanghai University of TCM in Shanghai, China, where my concentration was in Internal Medicine and Gynecology. After graduation I completed a one-year clinical residency at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. I am currently a Reiki Level 2 practitioner and I incorporate Reiki into my acupuncture treatments. In the spring of 2013, I also completed a course in Aroma Acupoint Therapy and have been employing that with my patients where applicable.
Prior to studying Traditional Chinese Medicine I received a B.S. in Chemistry with a second major in Biology from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA.
I use only single use, sterile, surgical stainless steel, disposable needles.
