Laura perry M.S., L.Ac.
My passion is to help people live better, more intentional lives. I have been practicing the art and science of energetic medicine since 2011, when I earned my Master’s from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York. I am licensed in New York State and nationally certified by the NCCAOM. I have a broad multi-disciplinary background, which includes the study of art, psychology, nutrition and biology. I earned a Bachelor of Science in studio art from Clark University, and a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. After many years working in the visual arts, I decided to reconnect with my interest in health and well-being, through the study and practice of acupuncture.
My style of treatment includes the fusion of meridian styles of acupuncture with the western approach of myofascial trigger point release which is effective in reducing pain and releasing held-tension in the body. I also weave essential oils into most of my treatments using Aroma Acupoint Therapy, a potent system of pairing key essential oils with acupoints, facilitating extraordinary shifts in body-mind-soul.
If one views a person’s body, mind and spirit as a unified totality, then the physical, mental and spiritual are deeply intertwined. Each affects and is affected by the other. Acupuncture and essential oils can play a significant role in a more holistic concept of overall health, by helping to regulate Qi, relieve pain, strengthen the nervous system, focus thoughts, balance emotion, and calm the spirit. My treatments encourage healing on all levels to promote physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
