About Us

North Scottsdale Acupuncture is an Acupuncture & Chinese medicine clinic specializing in women’s gynecological issues (endometriosis in particular), tension headaches & migraines, digestive issues, and pain. Pain can be in the form of acute trauma, chronic, or internal. It does not matter the caus; acupuncture can help.

In 1995, Nancy began the study of a traditional martial art at The Academy of Southern Chinese Gung Fu in Holland, NY. The curriculum included the study of acupuncture meridians and the traditional lifestyle of the Chinese martial artist. In China, years ago, many martial artists were trained in acupuncture and were expected to be healers, counselors, herbalists. The desire for a socially responsible service to the community was the creative force behind the development of Nancy’s career path.

In the 1990’s , while in college and studying martial arts in New York, Nancy worked in a health food store where she learned about healthful lifestyle choices, supplements and herbal remedies. This inspired her interest in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Nancy comes from a Western-trained medical family, and her mother was a strongly curious about natural remedies, health food, and herbal medicine. These influences created the foundation for a dedicated career in healthcare, which led her to enroll in the Acupuncture program at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture (PIHMA) in 2003.

Upon relocating to Arizona, Nancy earned her Master of Education from the University of Phoenix, and she served her community as an educator while pursuing her study of Acupuncture at PIHMA. Upon entering the PIHMA program, she became profoundly ill and was diagnosed with a debilitating digestive disorder called Crohn’s disease. Contrary to the medical advice that she was receiving, she opted to use Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture to heal. With in 18 months Nancy was symptom-free, pain-free, and to this day she remains completely free from Crohn’s disease.

In addition to gaining skill in treating digestive issues from her personal experience, Nancy chose to study endometriosis for her master’s thesis. She wanted to specialize in something that would help women who cannot find much relief elsewhere. Since that time, Nancy has helped many women get their lives back from the grip of severe menstrual pain.

While on the road to wellness, eating healthy foods and making balanced lifestyle choices contributed greatly to affecting a cure from something like inflammatory bowel disease. Nancy practices meditation, qi gong, and she eats home-grown fruits and vegetables from her own garden whenever possible.

This clinic is founded on personal experience & success in treating the “untreatable”.
