About Karen Hearn-Abbott, OMD, L.Ac.
I have been in Chinese Medical Practice since 1986 after graduating from California Acupuncture College. I then enrolled in the Doctorate program at Samra Univ. of Oriental Medicine and received my credential in August 1988. I was licensed by the NCAA until 2007 and participated in their testing and licensing program.
In 1996, I had the pleasure of being part of a group to study acupuncture in a hospital setting at the Xiyuan Hospital of PRC and attend the Second International Symposium on Medical Qi Gong. The group was present for the opening ceremonies of the first government sponsored Medical Qi Gong Academy where we also underwent a rigorous course of training. In January 2006 I completed the Acupuncture Orthopedics course given by Lerner Education and received my credential to become a Diplomate of Acupuncture Orthopedics (NBAO).
In addition to practicing TCM, I also practice N.A.E.T., Nutritional Healing, Massage Therapy and teach Qi Gong as part of my patient education program. You can read more about my practice on my website at www.acucareonline.com.
