Born and raised in Austin Texas, Christina has been studying Chinese medicine for over 14 years. She received a Masters degree from the top-rated Academy of Integrated Studies and Oriental Medicine. She is also certified by the Texas State Board, and the NCCAOM. Her journey in holistic medicine began 18 years ago when her son was an infant and had frequent ear infections. After several rounds of antibiotics, she knew that there had to be a better way. Deciding to try Eastern Medicine and seeing her son improve, she was forever hooked on Chinese Herbs! Since then, she has continued to use holistic medicine in her family and began her studies at AOMA in 2004. Christina continually broadens her knowledge through continuing education and research. Her practice focuses on Cosmetic Acupuncture, Seasonal Allergies and Pain. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring Austin with her husband, children, and lab mix. Other interests include real estate, design, and learning new dance steps!
