Lora Lee Alves provides gentle acupuncture and other modalities to tailor a treatment that balances and heals based on your individual needs.  In East Asian medicine, physical and emotional pain can be caused by blockages of Qi and blood. Acupuncture can invigorate your life energy ("Qi") to move freely and smoothly, using fine, sterile needles at special points on the body.

Lora Lee Alves, MSEd, LAc graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine NYC in 2015. Since changing career paths in 2002, she has sought to find ways to help individuals heal and be happier versions of themselves. She continues to be amazed by what acupuncture can do for athletes, those with chronic conditions, and emotional stress.
