Lets Get to the Root of Your Health Issues!
Alma Acupuncture is an acupuncture and natural medicine clinic in Central El Paso [Rio Grande Historic District] providing a healing environment that feels like home and quality natural therapies that get to the root of your medical concerns.

My focus is on restoring your health and promoting wellness through acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapies and nutrition. Chinese medicine complements mainstream healthcare very well and is safe and effective for a wide range of health conditions. I provide the necessary tools that allow you to manage your ailments and achieve your wellness goals.

Acupuncture is based on the premise that qi – a foundational energy for life and health – circulates throughout channels in the body. The movement of qi through all of the channels is similar to some of the circulatory systems described in Western medicine, such as the lymphatic or blood system. Optimal wellness is achieved when qi/energy is flowing steadily and freely. When the body responds to acupuncture, the body begins to “remember” how to heal its self. Acupuncture helps each person use their own natural healing resources to resolve their ailment.

Modern science describes that the human body strives to maintain a state of balance and wellness, known as homeostasis. Acupuncture is able to have the body’s own natural healing mechanisms that work to maintain this state of balance. Our bodies naturally create a variety of pain-relieving chemicals, anti-inflammatory chemical agents, hormones, and immune enhancers. Acupuncture helps the body use its own healing resources and processes to naturally conquer illness and disease. Chinese medicine complements mainstream healthcare very well and is safe and effective for a wide range of health conditions. I provide the necessary tools that allow you to manage your ailments and achieve your wellness goals.
Bio
I am a holistic licensed acupuncturist, Nationally Certified Chinese Herbalist, practicing in El Paso. My BA is in Education and I still enjoy teaching others. While still passionate about teaching I now enjoy teaching others about their health and reaching their wellness potential. I received a Master's degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine at Austin, Texas. I have 4 years of experience treating patients for a variety of illnesses including stress/anxiety, women's health, IVF/IUI support, fertility support, immune support, air borne/food allergies, alleviating cancer treatment side effects and other chronic/ acute ailments. I also have specialized experience treating women's fertility issues from interning/working at Texas Center of Reproductive Acupuncture in Central Austin. I have knowledge from working with people in recovery from addiction at The Right Step in Spicewood, Texas.

My style of treating holistically is on the whole person and not just a symptom or condition. I am dedicated to building a relationship with each patient to better create a renewal of wellness within each person.
