Acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine Herbalist
Anne Brunn is a nationally certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbal practitioner with a license to practice in New York State. She comes to The YinOva Center with a breadth of experience that stems from a life-long pursuit of holistic wellness. Her background as an artist and yoga teacher, combined with a studied understanding of the relationship of mind, body and spirit, lends a unique depth to her approach as a healer.
She is particularly interested is women’s health; she believes that effective care comprises the full spectrum of menstrual life: from puberty through menopause. Fertility concerns, menstrual difficulties, pre-natal and post-natal symptoms, breech presentations, and labor prep are just a few of Anne’s specialties. She finds that acupuncture and herbs are especially successful in treating mood swings and other emotional symptoms related to the disruption of hormonal transitions.
Anne received her Master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from New York City’s Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, where she trained in multiple acupuncture modalities including traditional Chinese, Japanese and Five Element. She continued her training with master practitioners in Beijing, China at the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and completed a post-graduate program in Kanpo, a specialized Japanese practice in herbal prescription.
Her goal is to help women take charge of their own health by encouraging them not to accept their ailments as “normal”, and so aims to optimize their most basic experiences — menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Anne brings to each treatment the gifts of insight and compassion, to enhance the healing experience and strengthen the innate healing power within each of us.
