It all started when...
Hillary received a full academic scholarship from the University of Florida where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Physiology & Health Science in 2002. She then chose to fulfill her dream of helping people attain wellness and studied Acupuncture at Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine in Gainesville and received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2009.
During her studies, Hillary gained advanced training in fertility and pregnancy as well as Shen-Hammer Pulse Diagnosis and Contemporary Medicine. Additionally, Hillary recently received further credentialing in the field of fertility by earning the ABORM Fellowship. ABORM stands for American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, and is a non-profit devoted to teaching, research, and the practice of Oriental Medicine as it relates to reproductive disorders. She is one of only 16 practitioners in the state of Florida to hold this accreditation.
In 2012 she co-created The Art of Acupuncture because she wanted to create a place where patients felt comfortable the moment they walked in the doors. Her patient load is comprised primarily of women trying to conceive both naturally and through assisted means, women experiencing discomfort during pregnancy, and individuals needing support through major life transitions. Helping others to realize their dreams of creating families is one of her greatest passions and feels fortunate to be able to work with this special population of women. To learn more about why she chose to work with this unique patient population, check out her blog post, My Calling.
Hillary is dedicated to helping her patients by empowering them to live healthy and fulfilling lives. She believes in the innate power we all possess to heal ourselves on a physical, mental-emotional, and spiritual level and takes great joy in helping people connect with that aspect of themselves. She is a certified Masters of Wisdom Meditation Teacher through davidji and has studied directly with davidji, Deepak Chopra and Caroline Myss and travels frequently to learn as much as she can from them, bringing their knowledge back to our community. She gladly teaches mantra meditation to patients who wish to empower themselves by healing their bodies through harnessing the power of their emotions and minds.
Referrals are the utmost compliment, especially in the vast sea of the interwebs. If you like what you read and think another woman could benefit, please pass it on!
