When Renee’s father died alone from a heart attack because he didn’t have access to emergency care, Renee left the world of retail fashion marketing and went into nursing. As her nursing career progressed, she saw a disturbing pattern in modern medicine and its limitations. Pain was not managed properly; it was only masked temporarily through prescription drugs. After a debilitating injury from a car accident, Renee sought out other healing modalities to avoid taking pills. She was also very frustrated and disappointed with the care provided.
This led her to seek out acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. She found a local acupuncturist who was able to heal her completely. This success also led her to enroll in Chinese Medicine School so that she could share this incredible knowledge with others who are in pain. Renee is currently completing her training in TCM and will graduate with a Doctorate of Acupuncture in 2021. Renee’s passion is helping people navigate through their unique health journey. She can give you the time and assistance you need to optimize your health and your care plan for yourself.
