Rebecca Nye, L.Ac., MSTOM
Having always had a
passion and deep respect for the ancient healing and mind-body
traditions of the Far East, I have spent much of my life exploring and
studying several of these traditions. My study and practice over the years has ranged from Japanese
martial arts, Shiatsu and other kinds of body work, to Iyengyar Yoga, Tibetan
Buddhist Meditation, Chinese Herbal Medicine and various traditional and
modern dietary therapies. I underwent my formal training at Pacific
College of Oriental Medicine in New York, where I obtained a Master of
Science in Traditional Oriental
Medicine (MSTOM) degree. This intensive training and practice, combined with
these lifelong influences,
has deepened my skill, insight, and sensitivity as a healer.
A strong background in Western bio-medicine allows me to see health issues from
both Eastern and Western viewpoints, giving me a uniquely balanced
perspective. My background includes extensive training in Nursing, as
well as 9 years closely assisting
a visionary New York City medical doctor in her endocrinology and age-management
medicine practice. Due to this solid Western medical background, I am well oriented to my patientsí medical diagnoses, test
results and any medications they may be on. I am always happy to
communicate with my patientís medical doctors or other health practitioners regarding their care,
whenever appropriate or desired.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a complete system in its own right for
balancing and healing the whole person: body, emotions, mind and spirit.
It is effective in treating a wide range of conditions, from
the common cold to chronic health issues, and can work remarkably well as complementary therapy
medical treatments. Acupuncture works
because it is based in powerful, ancient principles, which may be thought of
as the forgotten wisdom of the body, and indeed, of all life.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has withstood the test of over three thousand
years of practice in Asia, and its modern use is rapidly increasing in many
countries around the world. Its effectiveness and safety has been established
by both the National Institutes of Health and the World Health
Organization for treating for a large array of disorders and symptoms affecting people today.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine can effectively treat your health issue, and
bring you a new awareness of your bodyís inner healing wisdom.
