About Marti

I am a Board certified acupuncture physician, State of Florida license #2515 Diplomate in Acupuncture. Nationally certified by NCCAOM, Member of FSOMA, have a master's degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine, Gainesville, FL with a Bachelor’s in Health Science, an A.S. in Allied Health (Ultrasound) and an A.A. in Business.

I am licensed by the State of Florida as an Acupuncture Physician which includes Primary Care, diagnostic herbalism and western medicine.  My previous experience includes being a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer teaching ultrasound to physicians, with my specialty being both gynecological and men's health problems; and being a Licensed Massage Therapist for 13 years prior to becoming an Acupuncture Physician. I have a special passion for treating anyone who has, or has previously had, Endometriosis -- young or older. The results have been fantastic!"

I have read, researched, and taken classes on herbs, nutrition, and other forms of healing throughout my life.  I have also studied with Sylla Sheppard, one of the premier specialists in the U.S. on the medical use of pure essential oils, and with French Physician Daniel Penoel, whose practice primarily uses medicinal grade essential oils to heal his patients.
