Teri's philosophy is that it is important to work with all medical modalities in order to offer the greatest care to the patient. Where one medicine leaves off, another picks up. I strive to empower the general public with the knowledge and tools to be proactive about one's health while collaborating with the Western Medical community to provide a fully integrative medical experience. We help to create a safe space to heal the mind, body, and soul.
Teri graduated with a BA in Dance from University of Iowa, and danced for over 20 years before finally setting aside her pointe shoes to further her education. Having endured numerous musculoskeletal injuries, and allergies her whole life, it seemed only natural to her to go into Acupuncture as her chosen profession. Teri is licensed by the state of Illinois in acupuncture (L.Ac.), and is board certified through the NCCAOM. She holds a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, and herbology. She graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine- Chicago, IL with her Masters of Science. In 2005, she earned her degree in massage therapy from American Institute of Alternative Medicine- Columbus, Ohio. She specializes in Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage that uses acupressure).
