A good Chinese doctor has no sick patients.

As a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner with 15 years of clinical experience, Marina McBrearty will administer Acupuncture, Herbology, Cupping, and Nutritional Services to support your particular health challenge. 

As a trained licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, Marina has been successfully treating patients in Traditional Chinese Medicine since 2000. Marina is a graduate of the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California, one of the oldest TCM schools in the United States. Marina has witnessed the long-term health benefits of Acupuncture and Herbology for many years and cultivates her own health, well-being and inner harmony while healing others.

Marina often quotes her TCM Professor who used an ancient Chinese saying, “a good Chinese doctor has no sick patients,” when explaining the purpose of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In other words, an empty waiting room is a good thing. This philosophy suggests a skilled practitioner works with a patient to prevent illness by restoring health and harmony at the underlying root level.
