Acupuncture – Moira J. McCarthy TX L.Ac., Dipl. Ac.
Whether you are a long time acupuncture patient, or just contemplating or preparing for your first acupuncture treatment, my goal is for you to have your experience be a pleasant, rejuvenating, helpful, safe and comfortable one — an experience that leads you toward a better, healthier, pain-free life.
I have been practicing acupuncture for over 14 years in the Austin area. I am fully licensed by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners and was nationally certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in 1992. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree from UT at Austin, and my degree in Oriental Medicine from the Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My practice focuses on gently balancing and supplementing the body’s healing energy (Qi) through acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas to effectively treat most acute and chronic conditions.
Over my many years in Austin, I have established close working relationships with many local area physicians, chiropractors and registered massage therapists (RMTs). These professionals have seen the benefit of integrating complementary therapies, like acupuncture, in helping alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, carpal tunnel, MS, lupus, chronic fatigue, as well as sports injuries or injuries from auto accidents.
