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

- 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.
