Kathleen Ellerie, L.Ac.,Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM) Having a passion for health since she was very young, Kathleen grew up studying holistic medicine, focusing on holistic nutrition and essential oils. She fully intended to apply medical school after receiving her Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Nutritional Sciences from the University of Florida, but the methods of Western medicine did not fit in with her philosophy of treating the whole patient. She fell in love with acupuncture after seeing the many ways it could be used to treat almost any condition and decided to dedicate herself solely to the art of Chinese medicine, graduating from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine with a Master of Oriental Medicine and a Bachelor of Health Science. She is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the states of Florida and Texas and an NCCAOM board certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. Kathleen is also a certified Acu Detox Specialist and uses the NADA technique to help patients with stress and emotional distress. She believes in approaching health from all angles and often incorporates dietary and lifestyle advice into her treatments, knowing patient involvement is the key to preventative health.
