About Alexa -

Alexa takes a no-nonsense approach to the healing arts and expects positive outcomes. She works in partnership with her patients, providing high quality care as well as empowering them to make lasting changes in their life and health by incorporating simple, effective principles of Chinese medicine into their daily lives.

Alexa has been working in a clinical setting for 12 years. She received her master's degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine, in Austin, Texas. She is nationally board certified, a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and licensed to practice acupuncture as well as to formulate and prescribe custom-made Chinese herbal medicine. Alexa is also a gifted manual therapist and brings years of hands-on clinical experience to resolve a wide variety of acute and chronic musculo-skeletal issues.  

A love of learning and commitment to excellence drive Alexa, and she's pursued extensive post-graduate training in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and soft tissue manipulation, alike. She graduated in the top of her class from Mazin Al-Khafaji's prestigious Chinese Medicine Dermatology Diploma Course in London, England, and now holds the highest certification in the field--the only practitioner in New England with this distinction. She maintains on-going study with Al-Khafaji as well as with renowned Classical Chinese herbalist, Sharon Weizenbaum, for whom she serves as a teaching assistant. 

Alexa grew up outside of Boston and earned her bachelor's degree from Hampshire College. From there, she spent ten years living in Austin, Texas before being called back to her New England roots--roots that run deepest in Maine, having spent many idyllic childhood summers at a family camp near Fryeburg. She landed in Portland in early 2013 and is happy to now call Maine home.
