Maria has always had a commitment to health and healing. Before becoming an Acupuncturist, she could often be found tending to fellow runners and dancers sprained ankles, applying herbal solutions to bites and bruises, or cooking up nutritionally dense meals for her friends and family. It was a circuitous route to Chinese medicine beginning with pre-med, graduating with degrees in Public and Global health, and finally discovering acupuncture to address her own health concerns.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine offered the individualized approach to health and healing that Maria had been searching for. In 2014, she began her studies at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Upon receiving her Masters degree, she took off for China to work and study with the best doctors in Jiangsu Province. She returned home to the Pacific Northwest grateful for the clean air and inspired to bring the medicine to as many people as possible
Maria is a NCCAOM board certified and Washington State Licensed acupuncturist. She is driven and excited to provide natural solutions to health concerns and to strengthen the health of communities through individualized and effective care.
