LAc, MS ORIENTAL MEDICINE; DIPL. ACUPUNCTURE
Cassandra has over 25 years performing diagnostic tests for digestive, pulmonary, cardiac issues and cancers in infants, children and adults. In 1995, she earned her massage license in WI and started her studies in CranioSacral therapy with the Upledger Institute. She opened her own massage practice the same year to assist clients who were struggling with their health issues, which western medicine could not address. In 2002, Cassandra entered the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine and interned at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou, China in 2003. She earned a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine and has been a Licensed Acupuncturist since 2005. Her studies inspired her to educate, nurture and empower her clients to seek integrative approaches for their health challenges and longevity. Cassandra uses a comprehensive approach to diagnose an individual’s health concerns providing them an understanding of their options in treatment for their best care.
At 58, I went back to school with a compromised immune system, chronic fatigue, loss of hair, and more. Soon after I started seeing Cassandra once or twice a week, which lasted five months. She treated me with acupuncture, Chinese herbs and lots of nutritional advice. I would walk into her office feeling run down and walk out with renewed energy. My hair became thicker, eyebrows grew back, and I haven’t had a cold or flu since. Cassandra rocks!

I was delighted to find acupuncture to be more relaxing than a glass of wine!

Before working with Cassandra I was not feeling like my old self. I am 67 years old and I was starting to think that I was just experiencing the degenerating of a body just growing older. I was extremely stiff and sore, I lacked energy and my asthma seemed to be worse, along with this I had an aggravating discomfort in the left shoulder and neck.
While attending my grandson’s Tae Kwon Do tournament, I meet Cassandra. She was offering a free Chinese Pulse Reading to analyze one’s health. I thought I would challenge her to see what she may or may not detect. I was surprised how accurate she was at explaining some of my old injuries along with finding my current discomforts. I signed up as an experiment, with an open mind, to really see if something could be done to correct my neck and shoulder pain, helping with my asthma was just frosting on the cake.
I would say the one biggest insight would be just how, why and efficiently the acupuncture needle really is. How the needle improves circulation and how important circulation is to good health. Cupping is also awesome. She has helped me beyond my expectations because I not only feel better, I also have a better understanding of how the body works. My general health is better, my energy is back, and my asthma is under the best control in years. I am no longer skeptical of Chinese pulse reading, acupuncture, and cupping. It was certainly the best thing I did for my health."
