Meet our licensed acupuncturist:
Teri Calandra, Dipl.Acu, MSTOM, L.Ac., LMT, RMT
Teri is licensed by the state of Illinois in acupuncture (L.Ac.), and is board certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She holds a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
She graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine- Chicago, IL with her Masters of Science.
In 2005, she earned her degree in massage therapy from American Institute of Alternative Medicine- Columbus, Ohio. She specializes in Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage that uses acupressure).
Teri graduated with a BA in Dance from the University of Iowa, and danced for over 20 years before finally setting aside her pointe shoes to further her education. Having endured numerous musculoskeletal injuries, and allergies her whole life, it seemed only natural to her to go into Acupuncture as her chosen profession. She is able to empathize with her patients, and she works hard to help them overcome their ailments as quickly as possible. Teri’s philosophy is that it is important to work with all medical modalities in order to offer the greatest care to the patient. Where one medicine leaves off, another picks up.
Teri’s extensive experience and high certification as NAET practitioner are what sets her apart from other acupuncturists or alternative health practitioners in Chicagoland.
She started her studies in energy medicine as part of her own personal development journey, and continues to to learn and integrate that knowledge into her practice.
