As a professional dancer for over a decade in New York City, Maggie first started receiving acupuncture to ease aches and pains and optimize her endurance for long days of rehearsals and touring. The first treatment “sparked so much curiosity for me and with a deep understanding already about moving with alignment and efficiency, I felt like I had bridged the gap between my previous experience of healthcare and the energetics of the body I had come to know through dance.”
The more Maggie learned about the medicine and its healing capabilities the more she knew it was needed in the world. “What I love about acupuncture is that it restores and reveals the body’s innate ability to heal itself. In this way, it’s a great preventative medicine. I wanted to provide personalized care that would help people help themselves.”
Maggie first attended Tristate College of Acupuncture before moving to Pacific College of Health and Science in NYC where she graduated with a Masters of Science in Acupuncture (MSAc).
Trained in three distinct styles of acupuncture, Maggie customizes treatments by mixing and matching modalities to better suit individuals and their unique presentations. Acupuncture Physical Medicine is great for musculoskeletal and myofascial pain, utilizing the use of trigger points. Kiiko Matsumoto style looks deeply to constitutional or structural imbalances and uses gentle needling and the palpation of reflexes to get instant feedback from the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine is known for balancing the elements in the body and harmonizing the organ systems.
She enjoys treating all types of conditions including musculoskeletal pain, gastrointestinal disorders, immune imbalances, depression and anxiety, sleep disorders, menstrual issues, and overall stress management.
