Licensed Acupuncturist

Since childhood, Breta has been interested in helping and understanding other people.  This interest led her to major in Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Seeking a way to help others and better the lives of those around her, Breta then attended Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine where she earned a master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences.  Breta is nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine, which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbology.  She is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in both Maine and Massachusetts.

At Dragon Rises College, Breta was taught Contemporary Oriental Medicine® and the Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis technique, a uniquely powerful diagnostic tool.  Just as an x-ray allows doctors to peer beneath the surface to locate the root of a health problem, the Shen-Hammer pulse system gives an acupuncturist deep insights into a patient’s health.

Breta values the way Oriental Medicine allows her to view patients as unique individuals, identify the root cause of their health issues, and treat them in an effective, holistic, and comprehensive manner.  Along with acupuncture Breta utilizes herbal medicine, moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, blood-letting, electro-acupuncture, tai chi and qi gong exercises, and dietary and lifestyle recommendations.  As a practitioner, Breta has a strong focus on building relationships with patients that allow them to feel comfortable, empowered, and heard.  She enjoys guiding patients on their own paths to optimal personal well-being and empowering people to take charge of their life journeys.  While she enjoys treating a wide array of conditions, Breta is especially passionate about women’s health, fertility, maternal health, digestive issues, insomnia, internal medicine, and anxiety.

Breta’s treatment style brims with compassion, precision, and a gentle strength.  Her detail-oriented nature, friendly personality, love for helping others, and breadth of knowledge grant her patients a focused healing experience that addresses the emotional, physical, and mental components of their well-being.  After a treatment be prepared to feel both tranquil and energized!
