Kristina's study of the Chinese healing arts began shortly after she graduated from Rutgers University with tai chi classes. Her casual practice of this internal martial art grew more serious. She earned the honor of representing her school, teaching tai chi classes at Middlesex County College, Marlboro Senior Center, and the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Faced with a health issue of her own, Kristina decided to try acupuncture. Her very first treatment, quite literally, was life-changing. She soon enrolled at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. In 1999, when the school became Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (now called Pacific College of Health and Sciences), Kristina was awarded a Bachelor of Professional Studies, Acupuncture, and a Master of Science, Acupuncture. That same year she was also certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the NCCAOM. In July 2021, she completed her doctoral studies and earned the title Doctor of Acupuncture.
Kristina prides herself on having a solid comprehension of Chinese Medicine and biomedicine, which has prepared her to treat all sorts of conditions. Throughout her career, she has successfully implemented protocols designed to support cancer patients and patients receiving ART/IVF treatments. She has helped restore function and alleviate pain following injury and during orthopedic rehabilitation and often works cooperatively with other healthcare providers such as physical therapists and chiropractors. Above all, Kristina considers herself a compassionate healer, guiding the body to reignite its limitless self-healing powers and guiding each patient along the infinite path to health.
A bona fide Jersey girl, Kristina lives near the shore in Monmouth County.
