What is an appointment like with Alison?

During a session with Alison, we will go through a history of your own personal health, where we will discover patterns from a Chinese medicine based diagnosis which will direct our treatment together. From here, Alison will develop a treatment that is tailored to your own unique needs, utilizing acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, herbalism, or any other TCM techniques that are indicated for your healing journey.

Her love for the outdoors and recreation has brought about a passion for treating sports related injuries, whether they are chronic or recent. Alison uses her knowledge and training of anatomical acupuncture, electro-acupuncure, and cupping to treat pain imbalances in the body due to overstrain, sprain, and pre/post surgical injuries.

Alison also has an interest in digestive health and dietary counseling, gynecological/hormonal issues, and the treatment of fertility, pregnancy, pre-natal and post-partum care with TCM. She has studied continuing education courses with Debra Betts and Claudia Citkovitz, leading experts in TCM reproductive/pregnancy care.

You can expect to leave your session feeling relaxed, aligned and empowered with the tools to motivate you towards your personal health goals.
