Bre Grzych is a nationally board certified acupuncturist and massage therapist. Her journey to a more natural and health-oriented lifestyle began in massage school and has continued even beyond her schooling in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Utilizing knowledge and treatment modalities from both fields, Bre practices acupuncture, massage, herbal therapy, and nutrition therapy for both children and adults.
Between raising her family of four young kids and keeping up with a combined acupuncture and massage practice, Bre has been able to pursue continuing education above and beyond the requirements of her profession. Inspired by her own children, most of her continuing education has focused on pediatrics and has included training on treating common childhood ailments, chronic illnesses, autism spectrum disorder, and ADD/ADHD.
After seeing how much even the youngest of patients can benefit from these therapies, Bre has become passionate about educating other parents on how to nourish and heal their child naturally. She strives to change the health of future generations by starting with changing the health of the kids of today.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Is a multifaceted approach to healthcare that focuses on restoring and maintaining balance within the body and mind. With its detailed and unique perspective on health, TCM is able to address acute illnesses, such as colds and injuries, as well as, more deep rooted issues, such as asthma or allergies. TCM is even able to offer help when mainstream medicine is not quite enough.
While acupuncture is one of the most common modalities of TCM, it is certainly not the only one. If a traditional acupuncture treatment using needles seems too intimidating, there is no need to rely on that modality. Sometimes the most effective treatment involves no needles at all. And with a confident and calm approach, even the most hesitant children (and parents) come around to trying acupuncture needles. Whether the treatment utilizes needles or various non-needle techniques, acupuncture can become more effective when combined with other TCM therapies. The entire treatment plan might include acupuncture, massage, herbal therapy, nutrition therapy, and lifestyle counseling.
