Marija (it’s pronounced ‘Maria’) earned her Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City. Her style is a blend of Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), with touches of Kiiko Matsumoto (KM) style and Japanese acupuncture. Marija specializes in trigger point dry needling and frequently uses it in treatments to relieve pain, release obstructions and returning the body to a state of ease. She also incorporates manual fascial release techniques to support and enhance the effects of acupuncture.
Marija began studying acupuncture after spending over a decade working in marketing and advertising, where she specialized in web and graphic design. Although she loved her career, she suffered from severe chronic neck and wrist pain caused by working long hours at a computer. Through this experience she learned how small discomforts of ordinary life have the potential to become painfully disruptive and disabling when left untreated. Since then she has devoted herself to the study of healing through Chinese Medicine and is committed to helping people who are experiencing physical and emotional pain.
Marija believes in the concept of mind-body medicine, treating the whole person not just their symptoms. Whether treating muscle pain, athletic injuries, chronic conditions, or working with mental and emotional issues, it is Marija’s goal to help people return to a state of well being and to feel good inside and out, more able to live life fully.
