A Bit About Me
My name is Liana Russo. Whether you’re in need of recovery from acute pain, a chronic illness or imbalance, or emotional/mental distress, I am here to provide a focused and individualized treatment plan, as well as a comfortable space to let go of the many stresses of life.
Originally I’m from Philadelphia, PA, but it turned out that city-life didn’t agree with me - being closer to nature was what I needed for my body and mind. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide quality care to this community, it’s what I love to do.
I completed my Master Degree in Oriental Medicine in 2015 at a 4 year integrative medicine college in California, where acupuncturists are taught to be primary care providers. Through this program I also studied abroad at a medical college in Shikoku, Japan, and completed a landmark internship at the Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco. Outside of my school’s curriculum, I apprenticed for 2 years under Dr. Barbara Martello, a specialist of a style of acupuncture called Japanese Meridian Therapy. I also completed a 4 part certification process in Esoteric Acupuncture, as taught by Dr. Mikio Sankey.
In addition to acupuncture (Classical Chinese, TCM, Japanese, & Esoteric), I provide therapeutic cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, and Medical Qi Gong when necessary. I am a certified Chinese Medicine herbalist and prescribe individualized herbal compounding as well as pre-prepared formulas.
Having been trained and certified in several modalities of trauma resolution therapy, I also offer my treatment room as a safe space to discuss and release hardships, traumas, emotional stress, and mental struggles.
Please feel free to get in contact with any questions you have about your ailments or the treatment process. If you’d like to meet me before scheduling your first appointment, I offer a free 20 minute consultation in the office or by phone.
