Anna Fleischer is a licensed Acupuncturist, board-certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in the state of Vermont. Graduating with honors from the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine (ESATM) in Bloomfield, New Jersey, Anna specializes in treating both acute and chronic conditions that range from orthopedic disorders to infertility. With a specialty in Women’s Health, she focuses on fostering the body’s innate ability to heal itself by bringing each of its systems into balance, promoting overall well-being. There are many aspects involved in restoring the body’s health which complement the practice of Acupuncture, from nutritional support to herbal counseling, Anna incorporates various healing modalities in her treatment sessions.
Throughout her life, Anna has always had an interest in nutrition and the effects it can have on the body. In 2013, Anna gained her Master’s degree in Food Studies from Chatham University’s School of Sustainability and the Environment in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During her time at Chatham, she not only learned nutritional counseling but also made it a point to focus on where our food comes from by majoring in Sustainable Agriculture. By working on the student-run farm, she was able to understand why the implementation of ecological farming practices was important not only for our environment but also our body’s inner ecology. This holistic way of viewing earth systems inspired Anna to seek a comprehensive and natural approach to our own body’s well-being which led her to begin her studies at ESATM in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She has treated patients of all age ranges for conditions that include digestive disorders, stress management, menstrual irregularities and infertility, orthopedic conditions, depression and anxiety, neurological disorders, autoimmune conditions, and chronic headaches. Anna understands that optimal health takes an integrated approach and she is invested in putting in the time to reach each patient’s individual health care goals.
