Acupuncture is part of a system of holistic medicine that has been used for thousands of years in Asian countries. People living in those societies have benefitted from the therapies of East Asian medicine, enjoying better health while avoiding the negative side effects of excessive and/or inappropriate medication. Now, you can also experience the relaxing and health-promoting benefits of acupuncture, without having to travel to Asia!
What's Special about Acupuncture Works? Who is Kerri Winston?
Our staff acupuncturist, Kerri Winston, graduated with a Master of Science degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2003. During acupuncture school, she completed internships in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Traditional Japanese Medicine (TJM) clinics as well as specialties in acupuncture sports medicine and geriatrics. In becoming a licensed acupuncturist, she changed careers from chemical engineering/biotechnology (University of Washington, Ph.D., 1998) to work more closely with people in the field of study and practice, holistic health care, for which she has a passion. Kerri is licensed by NCCAOM, the national body that oversees licensed acupuncturists in the United States. She also received state licensure in Georgia and California. Since graduation from acupuncture school, she has studied in Japan with seasoned practitioners. Being able to do so is a rare honor that is not a part of the training for acupuncturists educated exclusively in America, and it does seem to make a difference. The tools and techniques she uses are unique among acupuncture options that may be found in Atlanta. Her style is tailored to each person for that day of treatment. The resulting treatments are comfortable and highly effective. Come in and experience it for yourself!
