Cherrie Laygo, DAOM, LAc, Acupuncturist in New York
"Every human being is the author of his or her own health or disease" this quote from the great Buddha is the underlying principle of my practice. I believe that each choice we make is part of a complex framework and there is no choice too small or insignificant to create a change. Every person I have had the honor to treat in my practice has made a decision to make change in their lives.
As a Traditonal Chinese Medical practitioner, I do not focus on the particular Biomedical diagnosis, but on the individual's signs & symptoms as I have studied extensively in pattern differentiation, diagnosis techniques, Acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine over the years (I received a Doctorate in Oriental Medicine from Emperor's College in Santa Monica, Ca)
I am able through the varied learned diagnostic techniques to treat patients with a wide variety of concerns including but not excluded to: Women's disorders ie: menstrual irregularities, menopausal, & fertility issues, musculoskeletal issues,chronic pain & Sports injuries, Thyroid issues and other Hormonal imbalances, Digestive issues, anxiety, depression, & many more.
