After many years of struggling with a myriad of health issues, Meg participated in a health and wellness program based on traditional Chinese medicine principles – Dragon's Way Qigong. To her surprise, she noticed her health improving for the first time in years. Curious about the power of traditional Chinese medicine, Meg became a patient and her health returned. Because of this life-changing experience Meg enrolled in acupuncture school.
Meg received her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from AOMA The Graduate School of Integrative Medicine 14 years ago. She is NCCAOM board certified in acupuncture, herbology and biomedicine. Her areas of specialty are digestive disorders, emotional health, women's health, allergies and weight loss.
Meg continued her Qigong energy practice and became a student of Grand Master Nan Lu, creator of Dragon's Way Qigong and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. He is an internationally recognized Taiji and Qigong Master and founded Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation and the Tao of Healing centers of NY. Not wanting to keep things to herself, Meg wanted to share the wisdom of this ancient energy practice and sought Dragon's Way Qigong instructor certification which she received under the direct guidance of Grand Master Lu. Meg has been a student of Grand Master Lu for 20 years and continues to study with him. She is also a Level II certified Medical Qigong practitioner and certified Breast Cancer Prevention Project Trainer, also a Qigong-based wellness program for women.
When not treating patients, Meg can most certainly be found in her kitchen experimenting with world cuisine to share with her husband, sisters and friends.
