What is Acupuncture?
Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture is an alternative medicine that has been used for thousands of years. As a complete holistic medical approach, we take the whole person into account -- body, mind and spirit -- to determine the most effective course of action to help the body heal itself. Acupuncture uses very fine, sterile needles which are inserted into specific points on the body to access your energy or “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). When we activate your Qi with a needle, we work to smooth out imbalances through eliminating toxins, moving stagnation, building qi and blood and promoting the body's natural healing process. Acupuncture has been proven to increase immunity, enhance recuperative power, regulate nervous systems and improve mental and physical health. The needles are single-use, disposable, and thinner than a cats whisker. The needles are relatively painless when inserted. Occasionally there will be a slight pinch that dissipates quickly. Most patients fall asleep during treatment, and leave with a deepened sense of relaxation. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can also be complimented with one or more of the therapies listed below:

About the Practitioner
Brittany has a deep understanding of managing pain using acupuncture. Being involved in a horrific car accident at 17, she discovered this medicine through her own relief while being in treatment. She fell in love with incorporating the deep emotional and spiritual approach of Five Element Acupuncture (5E) to treatment, which is why she chose one of the best Five Element Acupuncture schools on the east coast.
Brittany received her Masters of Acupuncture Degree (M.Ac.) from Maryland University of Integrative Health in 2014, formerly known as Tai Sophia Institute. Prior to earning her degree she attended Elizabethtown College where she received her Bachelor’s of Arts Degree, specializing in Communications, Public Relations, Psychology, Women’s Studies and Anthropology. After completing her graduate degree, she opened her private practice and joined into the Post Graduate Animal Acupuncture Certificate program, in which she completed in 2015. Since opening her business, she has performed thousands of acupuncture treatments on humans, horses, dogs and cats.
She combines her training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Five Element Acupuncture, eight principle theory, and her own intuition to support patients on a physical level, as well as a deeply psycho-emotional level.
