What’s our story?
Abby opened the clinic in the Fall of 2017. Sheri joined the team shortly thereafter in early 2018 where she has supported all aspects of the clinic’s growth and day-to-day functioning ever since.
Abby is a classically trained, licensed acupuncturist and board-certified herbalist. Abby studied under Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest from the Jade Purity School, and graduated from Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, NC with a Master’s of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.
Why does lineage matter?
There are a wide variety of acupuncture styles, schools, and lineages. You can think of different lineages as, essentially, different languages. Each lineage aims to communicate with the body to promote or restore health and wellness. No one is better than the other, but each have elements that are unique. What is important is to gain a fluency in the language you speak. Read more about this here.
Following graduation, Abby has combined her classical Chinese training with a Japanese style. Read more about the difference between Japanese and Chinese styles here. Find out more about Abby’s Chinese medicine adventures in her individual bio by clicking on her picture above.
That said, A&A is a collaborative practice that draws on the experiences and perspectives with other practitioners in the community to ensure the very best care for each of our patients. Our practice is not only about acupuncture – Abby has extensive training in a variety of modalities (see Our Services). A&A uses modalities best suited to your wellness goals and will do whatever it takes to enable you to feel better quickly. We consider it a great honor to assist our patients along their wellness paths and work together to ensure they have all the resources needed to succeed.
We want to be advocates for your health and wellness … because You Are the Point!
