Starting in her teens, she battled obesity, ADHD, debilitating chronic fatigue and what she thought at the time was narcolepsy. Although there was apparently nothing wrong with her and "no cure" for her condition, she knew that taking hard-core prescription medicine for the rest of her life was not an option and it propelled her desperate search for an answer. Her search not only led her to discover the ancient healing powers of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine but it was a big breakthrough in her emotional and spiritual growth.
Ginger is convinced that her life purpose is to help empower patients to heal themselves with knowledge and tools to heal their bodies. She went on to earn a Bachelor's in Health Sciences and a Master's in Oriental Medicine from the Acupuncture and Massage College in Miami, FL. She completed her 3 year clinical internship at two University clinics and was chosen by the University medical staff to earn a Clinical Excellence Award in 2012.
Ginger was part of a team at the Acupuncture and Wellness Center in Poulsbo, WA, who won Best Acupuncturist Award of Korth Kitsap in 2013 and 2014
In pursuit of excellence, she moved from Miami Beach across the country to a small village called Poulsbo in Washington state to practice under one of most well known acupuncturists and herbalists in the country, Master Robert Doane. "Bob" runs one of the busiest and largest TCM clinics in the country and teaches his unique practice worldwide. It was at his clinic, the Acupuncture and Wellness Center, where Ginger mastered his unique and effective style of Acupuncture and Herbal prescription for pain relief, among other conditions. As a team, the clinic's practitioners won the Best Acupuncturist Award of North Kitsap many years in a row.
Up to date, Ginger has over 8 years of clinical experience and has performed over 20,000 acupuncture treatments, which is an unusually high number for her profession, giving her the necessary clinical experience and expertise of a top practitioner.
Ginger’s desire to bring this effective medicine to today's modern world gave birth to Swiss Acupuncture. She maximizes the body's full healing potential with an evidence based and neotraditional style of acupuncture along with Herbal Medicine, Holistic Nutrition and Patient Empowerment. Her ultimate dream is to mainstream this medicine to help millions heal their chronic and debilitating health conditions so that they can live a life full of energy and vitality and use their body as a channel to fulfill their life purpose.
