Amy Vlacich is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist specializing in holistic pain management, digestive and hormonal support for all ages and stages of life. She believes in the body's innate ability to heal itself and strives to support this natural process with acupuncture and herbal medicine. Despite her passion for preventive health, Amy secretly loves to treat acute HEENT conditions such as headaches, allergies, sinusitis, vertigo, and TMJ.
Amy believes in a holistic approach to care, one that embraces all aspects of health: the emotional, physical, and spiritual. Her acupuncture treatments are integrative and multifaceted, often utilizing multiple hands-on therapies, such as moxibustion (heat therapy), fire cupping (suction), gua sha (stone massage), and e-stim (electrical stimulation). She also offers at-home testing for food sensitivities and gut microbiome analysis upon request.
Amy earned her Master's of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, California in 2017. During her graduate studies, she interned at the San Francisco Homeless Prenatal Program, LifeLong Medical Care, and UCSF Mission Bay. She also studied at the First Teaching Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Tianjin, China where she learned acupuncture protocols for stroke rehabilitation and other neurological disorders. Since then, Amy has given over 14,000 acupuncture treatments in private and community practice in New Hampshire and Florida.
Amy is a certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist (ADS), Acupoint Injection Therapist (AIT), and Fellow of the Acupuncture Board of Reproductive Medicine (FABORM), one of four fertility specialists in the entire state of New Hampshire. She has spent the past four years working at an integrative family wellness center in Florida, but is happy to return home to New England where she grew up. In her free time, Amy enjoys hiking, paddling, dancing, yoga, poetry, fiber arts, and adventures with her velcro dog, Rosie.
