Degrees, Certifications, Training
Amy’s interest in the inextricable link between mind and body led her to pursue a four-year Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine in Austin, Texas.
She is a licensed acupuncturist, certified acupuncture detoxification specialist and cupping therapist, and has received additional training in both trauma/addiction recovery and facial rejuvenation.
Amy inserts fine, sterile needles into acupuncture points located along the body’s meridians, a network that provides a navigable energetic map of the body. Early Chinese doctors used the term “Qi” (pronounced “chee”) to describe the energy that flows through these meridians.
The belief is that illness is caused by a disruption of Qi, which leads to imbalance. Acupuncture assists our ability to resist or overcome illnesses and conditions by correcting these imbalances. It also prompts the body to produce chemicals that decrease or eliminate both physiological and psychological pain.
MY PERSONAL STORY
While in school, I studied at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China, an experience that allowed my to observe the combined practice of Western and Eastern medicine at a public hospital. This cemented my belief in the power of collaborative care.
