Maureen’s true passion is healing. Her close connection with the body started at a young age through dance. After she pursued a Bachelor of Art from Point Park University for Dance Performance, she wanted to continue her education at The Finger Lakes School of Massage. Her work as a massage therapist led her to Lake Tahoe where she worked at both Lighthouse Healing Arts and Mountain High Massage and to Pennsylvania where she worked at The Holistic Health Center. She wanted to take her practice to an even deeper level which is when she starting her studies in Acupuncture.
She specializes in pain management, female issues, emotional disorder and digestive issues and loves connecting with patients to fully understand what their needs are. She wants patients to feel listened to and respected and will work to create a plan for outside of the treatment room to help create maximum results.
