Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine


Char Marie, L.Ac.
Licensed Acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Energy Medicine and Qigong Healing (medical qigong)

If you are seeking to improve your health in a gentle and effective, natural and safe way, you will enjoy working with Char. Her approach is relaxed and easy going. Just come as you are. You can relax in the comfortable treatment room, working one on one, in an environment that builds on the energy of healing, and enhances it, allowing your body to be most receptive to healing.

Her practice is based on a unique style of very gentle needling, used with qigong. Needles are minimal and there is no discomfort. It is a gentle, powerful and empowering way to work with qi. Patients love it because they can learn self-care to do at home, which enhances their healing work, and helps them to maintain wellness goals.

She offers acupuncture, complete Chinese medicine services (herbs, massage, energy healing, meditation instruction) one on one and teaches classes regularly here at our location. She will work closely with your physician and health care team if you like, to be sure you get the best care you need.

Patients vary from those seeking wellness, to those who are facing serious illness and health challenges. All the Chinese medicine treatments and energy treatments she offers work well with conventional western medicine (MD) and are safe to use with regular medical care of western medicine. In fact, quite a few patients come from physician referral.

She has more than 18 years of training and formal study with the late Grandmaster TK Shin, OMD, and more than six years in the beginning, with her first teacher, Donald Londorf, MD, L.Ac., (medical physician and acupuncturist, also a qigong master). She has also studied with many other teachers. Her training in acupuncture is unique in that she learned to work with qigong for healing (medical qigong) first, and then later, herbal medicine and acupuncture. Interwoven in her qigong training was always Chinese medicine theory and history, culture and spirituality. This is a very old way of learning Chinese medicine, for which she is very grateful, and loves to preserve in her own work.
