Anne Gordon, L.Ac, EAMP, Master's Level Diplomate in Acupuncture, Board certified in Chinese Medicine by the NCCAOM
A life long affinity for fitness, adventure and wellness led me from the mid-West to Costa Rica. On the pre-med track in college, I graduated with a BS in Chemistry, and to be honest, at that point studying for another 10 years just wasn't something I was ready for. So I moved to Costa Rica where I taught at several schools, raised a family...and along the way discovered the power of Chinese Medicine. I came to acupuncture by chance. I'd been using Western drugs to stop my debilitating migraines, but they didn't work that well and I was worried about negative side effects of continued long-term use. I tried acupuncture and the migraines went away! Seriously. One treatment - no more migraines, no more meds, and most importantly, I got my life back. Treatments were so successful that I continued with acupuncture to treat my chronic allergies and asthma.
Along the way I ran several international marathons, many more trail races, discovered yoga and meditation and became a certified yoga teacher. Yes! I am a yogi. Fun fact: I took inspiration and named my clinic Atha Wellness after the first yoga sutra by Patanjali.
When I moved back to the US in 2010, I was absolutely certain that I was ready to focus on medicine--this time on becoming a practitioner of Chinese Medicine. I found my way to Middle Way Acupuncture Institute and graduated in 2018.
