Christina Wallace came to the profession of acupuncture after having personally experienced the benefits first hand. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying Pre-Med, she sustained a severe concussion and subsequent ailments when she was hit by a car as a pedestrian. Acupuncture seemed to be the most effective treatment for her injuries, which included migraines, vertigo, fatigue, and anosmia (a complete loss of the sense of smell.) After a full recovery, she was so impressed that she decided that this was the type of medicine she most wanted to practice. She now enjoys working side by side with other health care professionals in order to provide the most comprehensive and integrative treatment possible for patients.
Christina has a passion for helping clients to feel their best. She aims to make each session as relaxing as possible with results lasting long after a person has left the treatment space. In her years of practicing she has treated many issues, with a special interest in addressing anxiety, depression, fertility, headaches, migraines, and all types of pain.
Christina graduated from the American Institute of Alternative Medicine’s Acupuncture program in 2012. Her extensive studies since then have taken her from workshops with Qi Gong masters in California to hospital internships in Beijing. She is nationally certified with the NCCAOM as well as being licensed in New York State.
