Christine M. Papp, L. AC, MSAOM Diplomate O.M.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine was never my first career choice. I didn’t grow up in an area where there were acupuncturists, and like any good child I took my antibiotics and other medications as the doctor prescribed. However, several years ago in 2006 I went to an acupuncturist upon the recommendation of a friend to help me deal with premenstrual symptoms. I went for about four months and was pretty much free from all of my symptoms.
While I was quite fascinated with the whole process, I didn’t think it was a career choice or something that I could quit my job and study. Then in 2007, my mother passed away and it was a very traumatic experience that left me with a bad case of insomnia and anxiety… back to acupuncture I went, and this time after not having slept for more than 2-3 hours at a time each night for almost 1.5 years I was even more shocked at how quickly and easily I was able to start sleeping well. A combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine and within one month I was sleeping better than I had in 5-7 years! I felt like a different person!
I was hooked, better yet fascinated, and decided this was the career choice for me. I quit my job and entered school in the fall of 2010 and haven’t looked back. Having studied Qi Gong for almost 10 years Oriental Medicine was a natural fit.
I currently hold a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM), am a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac) and have a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine. I absolutely love treating people and helping them to re-establish balance within their body. I couldn’t think of a more rewarding career after spending 11 years in information technology. Since I left my job and completely devoted my mind, body and spirit to the practice of Oriental Medicine I haven’t looked back. I look forward to building a partnership with my patients to help achieve balance and peace with body, mind and soul!
