Dr. Vanessa Pettit
Registered Acupuncturist, Doctor of TCM
The primary focus of my practice is to align the physical and emotional well-being of my patients. With an interest in whole body rejuvenation and healthy aging from the inside out, I fully believe that when provided with the right conditions, the body demonstrates its innate ability to repair itself to a more healthful state. I am a strong advocate for stress reduction and proper nutrients in order to improve immunity, sleep, energy, hormones, fertility and digestive functions. In addition, I especially love seeing the effects of acupuncture on anxiety, back pain and muscle tension. I welcome all conditions and really enjoy working with little ones, ages 6 yrs and older, to help instill healthy coping mechanisms for their nervous systems at an early age.
I first found Acupuncture as a young adult patient in order to assist with the overwhelming symptoms and subsequent effects that stress had on my nervous system and in my life. This powerful early experience combined with years spent in a demanding corporate setting led me to explore a return to my studies and cross over to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as did my desire to help people. My message of hope for patients is clear; with encouragement, commitment to self and a set of integrative healthcare tools, the opportunity to create the future of your health is by design.
I love to travel and in doing so have had amazing experiences on my own health adventure while studying Quantum Bio-feedback, meditation, brain state frequencies, yoga and reiki. I strive to bring all of my knowledge and skills into practice to enable my patients to regain control of their own health.
In my spare time you can most likely find me at yoga or spending time in the mountain air.
