Hi, I'm Alessandra. 

"My journey to becoming a student and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Medicinal Herbs, Diet, Cupping, Moxibustion, Meditation, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Tui Na) began with healing myself.

 

I was going through fertility treatments in my early 30's and had the great grace of working with an MD who understood the benefits of integrative medicine - specifically Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs.

 

Before this experience, I believed that the excruciating pain of PMS was just something women have to endure, and that NSAIDs are a way of life. Because of TCM, I have enjoyed easy cycles for years. I have used this medicine to treat my own fibroids, pituitary tumor, anxiety, and insomnia. I cannot make any claim that this medicine will work for your body the same way that it did for mine. But because of the wonderful improvements I experience, I am compelled to learn this medicine and share it with the world.

I have successfully treated people for the following conditions: Anxiety, Insomnia, Arthritis & Joint Pain, PTSD, Low Back Pain, Sciatic Pain, Hot Flashes, Frozen Shoulder, Idiopathic Foot Neuropathy, Migraine Headaches, Chronic GI Disturbance, Bell’s Palsy, Nausea (Idiopathic, associated with Chemotherapy as well as Pregnancy), Lactation Issues, Dizziness (associated with Thyroid Disease, Meniere’s, Sea Sickness, and idiopathic) and many more…  

 

It's remarkable to observe and be a part of this medicine, which is woefully misunderstood and undervalued in Western Culture. I welcome the opportunity to join you on your journey to becoming a more healthful person, enjoying greater ease in life."
