June 2019 – Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Have Arrived.
NAPM proudly announces the formal expansion of our services to include acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Katrina White, M.Ac., L.Ac., known to many of you in her role on our administrative team is also a nationally board-certified acupuncturist (through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and we’ve finally convinced her the time is right to “hang her shingle” here with us in offering an Eastern perspective. Her superlative diagnostic and treatment skills are very much appreciated in complementing our Western medicine perspective, and many of our staff, families and patients have already benefited tremendously from her knowledge, wisdom and tiny needles!
For those who haven’t had her draw your blood over the past couple years, Katrina is also a licensed phlebotomist and spent many years prior to her training in Oriental Medicine in the hospital ward and lab environment. As such she has a well-balanced perspective on health and disease, and on prevention and treatment approaches.
Acupuncture is increasingly covered by major insurance companies, and Katrina is an in-network provider (along with the rest of us here at NAPM) with Aetna, Cigna, EBMS, Premera, United and more. Please check with your plan directly to ensure specifics, as every plan has different considerations.
