The Eastern art of Classical Chinese Medicine is a complex vibrational medicine. It integrates the empirical biological sciences with the more subtly powerful energies that make us who we are. Its affects can be measured and quantified but the quality of its efficacy is rooted in a deep understanding of the unseen forces embedded within life. This holistic system of medicine will provide us with a thorough analysis of your state of health. It is my avocation to appropriate not simply the dysfunctional areas in your body or life, but the quality of your ability to function healthfully and react appropriately to external biological pathogenic factors and life. 

Classical Chinese Medicine, with its expansive ancient roots, enables the practitioner to treat fundamentally every health condition; it offers preventative care, restores physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, and helps you maintain that. Many people discover acupuncture after exhausting other medical options and are astounded at how comprehensive the perspective and capacity.

Her genuine affinity, deep understanding of disease and pathology, and precise diagnostic skills make her an exceptional practitioner. Mary specializes in treating chronic diseases, auto-immune conditions, and Lyme disease. She is also certified in Facial Rejuvination Acupunture. Beauty from the inside out! A concept intrinsic to this therapy, it addresses fine lines, wrinkles, loss of tonicity and elasticity, scarring and other dermatological conditions, as well as circulation and hydration quality.
