Lauren earned a Master of Science from Tri-State College of Acupuncture where she received extensive training in 3 styles of acupuncture including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), and Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KM). She focused her study on myofascial and trigger point release therapy and Japanese-based technique as well as adjunct therapies including moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, auriculotherapy, AMMA massage, and Zero Balancing ©.
