Dr. Gigi is a graduate of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA. When she was a little girl, her physician dad said with a sparkle in his eye “Now remember that when you grow up you can be any…any…kind of doctor you want to be!” That joke still makes her laugh to this day. She has always loved being involved in medicine. She initially became a Massage Therapist and then pursued her Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. She also holds a Doctorate of Natural Health from Clayton College in Birmingham, AL.
Her favorite part about being an acupuncturist is that she feels it is nearly as relaxing to practice acupuncture as it is to receive it. She’s seen many nurses and MD’s burnout in practice and finds that many acupuncturists enjoy it more and more as time goes on and they become more profound in their understanding.
She decided to join the Modern Acupuncture team to be able to use Chinese Medicine to help a larger population of patients. She is also very excited about the Distal Needling Acupuncture method.
Outside of work, Dr. Gigi loves spending time with family. She says that family and friends are life’s greatest treasures. She also loves bicycling and woodworking and will happily admit that there are times that reality TV really hits the spot!

Christopher decided to become part of the Modern Acupuncture team because he enjoys the combination of the tranquil ambiance and the open room treatment environment. He believes that people benefit from communal healing and the presence of others during treatment.
When he’s not working, Christopher loves spending time with his incredible family and continues to pursue theater and other performing opportunities whenever they arise.
