Maureen Alexander is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Aroma Acupoint therapist, Massage Therapist, certified sound healer, and California Licensed Herbalist. She holds a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Emperors College and maintains a private practice in Ithaca, NY.
Her extensive studying and training has led her under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Chu of Pasadena, CA with an emphasis in Master Tung style acupuncture. She has worked through The Disney Cancer Center and The Venice Family Clinic. She shared her skills and expertise with the One World Health Project where she traveled to Sri Lanka and India, treating patients with anything from diabetes, high blood pressure to pain.
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 Arts degree in Dance from Point Park University, 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 then dove even deeper into alternative medicine completing her masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture at Emperors College in Santa Monica, CA, and she is currently pursuing her doctorate in Chinese Medicine through Pacific College of Health and Science.
She specializes in pain management 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.
