Root and Branch Therapy
About this pro
Allison at Root & Branch provided me with a fantastic experience that set me at ease every step of the way. I received acupuncture and massage, and I couldn't be happier with the experience at the office, or the results I've had after the treatments. Allison is easy to work with, knowledgeable, and very skilled. I know I'm always going to be taken care of, and I can hardly wait for my next visit! I highly recommend Root & Branch Therapy!Jul 7, 2016
Allison is extremely knowledgeable and caring. She has treated everything from digestive issues to easing my pain while being pregnant with a herniated disc. She has a gentle touch with the needles and provides a soothing atmosphere. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Allison or her services!Jul 7, 2016
Allison Fleming worked as acupuncturist at my center, New Beginnings Wellness Center, for 5 years and worked in my room, as well, doing reflexology during some of my facials. Allison still works with me several times a week..She is the most nurturing, thorough acupuncturist and knows so much about nutrition, it continually blows me away. Her knowledge is amazing and she researches every ingredient, every symtom, thoroughly and I have learned so much from her. She puts her whole heart and soul and mind into each client 's individual needs, going far beyond the expectations of the usual acupuncture one receives. I highly recommend her for any type illness, injury or detox program you want to do. She is magical and awesome.Jul 7, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To assess if the services I offer are going to help the client achieve their health goals I like to schedule a phone consultation prior to the first in-person appointment. If I feel like it is going to be a good fit for both of us then I will email my forms and schedule an appointment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 2008 I graduated from AOMA-- Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. AOMA is a highly accredited masters program for acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The program covers; acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, biomedical sciences, nutrition, food energetics, mind-body exercise, Shiatsu, reflexology, cupping and practice management. After 4 years and 1000 hours of practice in the student intern clinic you then take state licensing exams to begin to practice. Since graduating I have taken many continuing education courses. Including: * Herbal Medicine for Digestive Disorders * Facial Rejuvenation Acupressure and Acupuncture Facelift * Functional Blood Chemistry * Gluten Sensitivity, Food Allergies and Autoimmune Disease In addition I am certified in: * Bach Flower Essences * Reiki and Channeled Light Therapy
- How did you get started doing this type of work?From a young age I had recurring sinus infections. Then in high school I started having digestive distress, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, menstrual irregularities and fatigue. Until discovering acupuncture and herbal medicine I just dealt with all of these symptoms because I did not want to take any prescription medications for them. So when I learned that there were natural alternatives that did not have adverse effects I was relieved and wanted to know more about this ancient healing art. So I started reading the book "The Foundations of Chinese Medicine" and it all instinctively made sense to me. After that, I decided to make a career out of it and that was probably the best decision I have ever made.
