Maria received a Bachelor of Science and Master of Acupuncture at Pacific College of Health and Science and is currently enrolled in a Doctoral Program at the same college. Recognizing that healing is an integrative practice in which the mind, body and spirit are entwined, Maria understands that finding balance amongst these aspects can create a space for healing.
Maria is dedicated to working with patients where they are currently on their healing journey and helping them realize their goals for personal wellness. She explains, “acupuncture treats the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body, thus bringing balance into the body, in turn this promotes wellness and healing. Acupuncture treats the person as a whole. That is the beauty of Traditional Chinese Medicine.”
Maria’s practice includes the treatment of gynecological concerns including PMS, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, and fertility. She also works with patients experiencing insomnia and/or digestive issues, but does not limit herself to a singular specialty. She has worked with scar therapy, an important aspect of the healing process. Her passion overall is to work towards health and wellness maintenance explaining that “maintaining wellness is the key to enjoying life to the fullest.”
