About Alexandra

Alexandra, a Board certified acupuncturist comes from a long background in therapeutic massage, cupping, tui na, and yoga. She specializes in postural pain, pelvic floor rehabilitation, mental emotional disorder. Her passion for Chinese medicine began at a young age while working for an acupuncturist whom introduced her to the philosophy and lifestyle of Daoism.  She took on all aspects of the medicine and felt like it addressed the root to the imbalances in her life without offsetting anything else, it made sense to her so she followed her intuition and now works to create opportunity for others to do the same in their lives. Alexandra completed her Chinese Medicine degree at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Evanston IL , where she practiced the Five element acupuncture technique along with Channel theory, While in school Alex was under mentorship learning Japanese style acupuncture treating fertility, pain and even more chronic conditions like treating patients through cancer treatment and long-term illness.  Alexandra is enthusiastic, compassionate and is helping to bridge the gap between western and eastern medicine.

Seanna Tully is an outstanding  acupuncturist and herbalist. I went to see her for several different issues, including digestive problems, allergies and some anxiousness, and her combination of acupuncture and herbs has been really helpful over the last year. She also has an easygoing personality which fits her work perfectly. My wife is a client of hers, too, and shares my experience of her.  I always look forward to seeingSeanna because I know I'll feel better and also enjoy our banter back and forth. I recommend her without reservation (and now  that I think of it, I need to make an appointment again soon!).
