Catherine A. Hollingsworth is an acupuncturist and herbalist trained at the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture. She aims to balance the physical, mental and emotional causes of disease, rather than simply treating symptoms. Often, physical pain or emotional distress can be accompanied by a constellation of other minor symptoms, and is centered within habits and life stressors. Catherine seeks a path toward health that considers the patient’s total experience. In this way, a profound transformation can occur in the treatment room. She is consistently amazed by the impact that acupuncture can have in every aspect of her patients’ lives and is honored to be offering this medicine to her community.
She focuses on two different types of acupuncture:
• Five Element Acupuncture (excels at mental, emotional, and internal disorders)
• Dr. Tan style acupuncture (excellent for pain)
She has also received 500 hours of yoga therapy training. This experience informs her understanding of the body, the mechanics of movement, and possible causes of pain.
Before entering the field of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, Catherine worked in the visual and performing arts. She continues to be an fan and supporter of all kinds of creative work.
