Hello, my name is Erin Stewart. I am a licensed acupuncturist, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner, and massage therapist. I am currently studying to get a doctorate in acupuncture. My goal for this blog is to discuss the ways in which acupuncture and TCM can work alongside the standard of care you are getting from your PCP. Western medicine is fantastic for many things such as broken arms, other injuries, and life-threatening emergencies. Acupuncture and TCM, on the other hand, are fantastic at things like pain management and disease prevention. This blog is dedicated to discussing how Western and Eastern medicines can work together to support your health.
