the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
She had the pleasure of studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the

Science degree in Acupuncture. At the Swedish Institute, Lauren had the
opportunity to study both Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Classical
Acupuncture, which allows her to offer a variety of treatment options.
Lauren has successfully treated a diverse clientele across a wide range of
health issues. Patients have sought treatment for issues such as pain
management (including back, neck and shoulder pain), women’s wellness,
allergy relief, digestive complaints, as well as for stress management.

symptoms, nor does she treat people with similar issues the same. Your
unique health patterns are looked at and evaluated thoroughly, and then a
specific treatment plan is tailored to suit your specific needs.
