Emily began her professional career by attending the prestigious AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine where she earned her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. While in school she began an internship at The Texas Center for Reproductive Acupuncture (TCRA) during which she had the opportunity to study under Kirsten Hurder-Karchmer, whose innovative leadership in fertility acupuncture stoked Emily's passion for helping couples.
Working at TCRA was career changing and provided Emily the platform to move to north Texas to open their Plano and Fort Worth locations where she served as the clinical director and senior fertility acupuncturist of both locations until 2012. During this time she was able to build strong client and doctor relationships as well as further expand her education in the field of fertility acupuncture, preconception healthcare, and nutrition.
Through her extensive experience Emily has recognized how the impact of nutrition, digestion, stress, and lifestyle choices can have on our overall health and works to gently encourage nature's intent by improving each of these areas. Her goal which each patient is to provide excellence in care as she continues to build on her education in this field to become a better resource for the families she works with.
Emily has also worked very hard to earn the professional care level in Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy enabling her to work on physical hindrances causing infertility such as scarring, adhesion, and prolapse. She uses Chinese diagnostic techniques and acupuncture combined with the Arvigo Techniques to tailor your session specifically to your needs.
Now, the owner of The Acupuncture Juncture, she offers acupuncture and alternative healthcare options for those suffering from issues such as infertility, digestive disorders, pain, stress, migraines, and seasonal allergies. Her goal is to provide compassionate and effective treatments to her patients in a relaxing environment.
Additionally, she has done talks for RESOLVE, a peer-led national infertility association, to help spread the word of natural fertility options and fertility acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to IVF/IUIs. Emily continues to form relationships throughout the DFW area to help bridge the gap between holistic and allopathic reproductive medicines.
She is excited to continue to provide safe, effective, and proven methods for treating infertility and allergies. If you are interested in learning more about how fertility acupuncture may be able to help, please give her a call.
