About Dr. Wasson

My name is Dr. Barbara Wasson, DAc. I began my journey towards Acupuncture and healing at a very young age through being exposed to alternative medicine by family practitioners. Thanks to my family I grew up learning about how acupuncture can be used to not only treat various health conditions, but also prevent them. Through my exposure to integrative medicine I gained a deep appreciation for the body’s innate ability to heal. With my understanding of Chinese Medicine and my respect for the natural healing process of the body I can help facilitate health and well-being for you and your family. As a Doctor of acupuncture, I look forward to helping you realize the healing potential of your body. Wellness has always been a passion for my family; allow me to help make it a passion for yours!
