Chris is a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture in Boston, MA. He became an acupuncturist because he had a passion and interest in learning how the body works and wanted to develop a skill that can positively affect the body’s well-being. His favorite part of being an acupuncturist is seeing his patients become the healthy version of themselves. He loves trying to puzzle out the best solution for a patient’s unique pathology.
Chris wanted to be part of the Modern Acupuncture team because he believes that bringing an affordable, accessible, and effective model to an unorganized acupuncture market will make such a difference to so many patients out there.
In his free time, Chris absolutely loves swimming, and you’ll frequently find him at the pool doing laps. When he’s not making waves, you can usually find him having a couple of drinks with friends, playing board games, doing yoga, meditating, studying acupuncture, or watching Pixar movies. One of his next goals is to become proficient in outdoor survival situations.
Talia is a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego Campus. When she initially began her undergraduate studies she entered with a pre-med focused major. She had the opportunity to follow many medical doctors and quickly realized patients were given a diagnosis, prescription, and/or referral. She felt she wasn’t being fair to the patients by not informing them of another alternative option. She began to seek out Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); treating the root cause of illness, not only symptoms, made sense to her. Her favorite part of being an acupuncturist is seeing her patients regain the trust that their body naturally wants to heal and if given the right circumstances it will.
She joined the Modern Acupuncture team because the approach of making Acupuncture accessible to everyone really resonated with her. She says “If we can get more people to put interest in their health by being a member then we can start to decrease chronic pain, medication use, and daily stress. Acupuncture can finally be utilized as a first approach to health instead of as a last resort.”
When she’s not working Talia is usually outside trying to keep up with her one year old! She enjoys teaching and practicing yoga, being at the beach and feeling the sunshine. Her family always tries to make time to travel since they love learning about and experiencing new cultures.
After studying midwifery, Miranda wanted to continue to understand the transformative, creative, and intelligent aspects of the human body. She wanted to learn tangible skills that could relieve suffering and help people feel better physically, emotionally, and mentally. Miranda was seeking to dive deeper into the vast body of knowledge and wisdom behind acupuncture theory to understand how to rectify imbalances within the body and ultimately find harmony and health. Connecting with people and witnessing the dynamic transformation of mind, body and spirit is what Miranda loves most about being an acupuncturist. Practicing acupuncture allows her to work with and appreciate the unlimited potential and healing life- force of the person in front of her. She continually rediscovers how interconnected we all are as humans. Miranda choose to be part of the Modern Acupuncture team because she wanted to join a team of compassionate and committed acupuncturists who are devoted to providing accessible, high-quality acupuncture treatments. Outside of work, Miranda says she feels most like herself when she is in the water. She loves to swim in the summer and polar plunge in the Fall and Winter. Miranda also loves studying Buddhism and the way it compliments Chinese Medicine in that they are both empowering and practical tools.
