Dr. Alsop received her first acupuncture treatment at age 13. She believes the effectiveness of these treatments allowed her to enjoy an allergy-free young adult life, and inspired her to pursue a career in Oriental Medicine. She has a Bachelors of Science in Community Health, and earned her Masters Degree from the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in 1995. That same year she became nationally board certified by the NCCAOM and a member of the American Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association. She served on the Board of the Oriental Medicine Association of New Mexico for two years. Dr. Alsop also has certificates in Pediatric Oriental Medicine from Blue Poppy Inc. and has completed continuing education units in women’s health and autoimmune disorders. She has been practicing for 21 years in Santa Fe, NM and works closely with local MD’s, dentists, massage therapists and chiropractors and she continues to feel a passion to improve the wellness of the community in which she lives. Dr. Alsop incorporates elements of both Japanese and Chinese acupuncture, herbs and nutritional therapy. Patients of all ages from newborns to elderly are welcome.
