Alexis marries a Chinese background with Western accessibility in her approach to Herbal Medicine. Her herbal recommendations can often be found in your own backyard or your local grocer’s bulk bins, or with homemade tinctures and flower essences. Alexis guides her patients to become intuitively aware of how they respond to herbal medicine, as not everyone responds the same way to the same herbs, and to intuitively know when it is time to back off or reintroduce, if needed. She sees these as a supplement to your healing in the short term, as a way to correct course, as opposed to a long-term solution to rely on. Recommendations may be made to compliment the healing work started in an Acupuncture or Transformative Healing session.
Alexis studied traditional Chinese medicine at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. Her knowledge was further enhanced through her work at Turtle Dragon, a healing center focused on Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Here she was responsible for preparing herbal prescriptions and tinctures for multiple practitioners as well as overall management of supporting the herbal pharmacy. Through this work she further enhanced her learning and developed her own system for incorporating Herbal Medicine into her Acupuncture and Intuitive Healing treatments.
