Allison found her way to Chinese Medicine after many years of studying and practicing herbal medicine. Her passion for working with plants deeply informs her practice today― weaving together herbs, moxabustion, acupuncture and bodywork to facilitate subtle, profound and potent healing for her clients.
The training never stops. After completing a four year masters program, Allison has pursued additional training in external injuries (i.e. any physical pain or sports injuries), moxabustion therapy, and women's health and abdominal massage. She will be completing a certification program in Chinese Medicine Dermatology in 2019 as well as additional training in Maya abdominal massage. As her practice of Chinese Medicine evolves she continues to hone her skills in order to provide the highest level of care to her clients.
