Anne’s view of medicine is as much an art as it is a science. As a licensed pharmacist for over a decade, Anne was a guide for many on their path to wellness, often treating symptoms. However, she believes that good health is just more than a lack of disease. As she pursued her quest in understanding how to achieve good health, Anne’s studies in Chinese Medicine and Herbology led her to recognize that good health and medicine should be based on good science, and to be open to new paradigms. Her Chinese roots have encouraged her to reexamine alternative eastern medicine to craft a new integrative, lifestyle medicine. In addition, her comprehensive knowledge in both Eastern and Western Medicines in herbology and pharmacology lends itself to recognizing drug or disease interactions with medicinal consumption.
Anne is devoted to working with her patients to maintain balance and live well beyond disease prevention. She leverages knowledge of genetic predispositions manifesting in systemic disharmonies to help individual in identifying their tendencies toward disease or imbalances in their emotional and physical health. She has a successful history working with women who are diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, endometriosis, and menopause. Her women’s health expertise also extends to infertility, as well as pre and post-natal care. With a supplementary background in massage therapy, Anne’s treatment of musculoskeletal issues complements the acupuncture. She has experience treating herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, rotator cuff injuries as well as tendonitis and other sprains and strains in the body.
Anne has served as Acupuncture Supervisor at the Brownsville Multi-Service Family Health Center (BMS) where she implemented the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) detox protocol to help individuals to abstain from drugs and alcohol. Her work at BMS grew to collaboration with their rehabilitation and physical therapy departments to assist individuals with pain management.
Anne received a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine before advancing to her doctorate studies there, where she became a Doctor in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) in 2008. She furthered her studies at the China Beijing International Acupuncture Training Center and completed detox training at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from Long Island University. Anne’s latest endeavor is serving on the advisory board for Kamwo Herbal Pharmacy for their Meridian Tea Pills.
