Brittany Chambers, L.Ac
Brittany Chambers is a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, where she earned a Master of Science in Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture Styles. She is a nationally board-certified Diplomate in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and a Licensed Acupuncturist in New Jersey. Brittany is a certified Reiki Master and feels this advanced training fine-tuned her ability to connect to the subtle energies that acupuncture taps into. Her clinical experience includes work at Boston Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and extensive work at the NESA Acupuncture Treatment Center.
Brittany is a Japanese Style Acupuncturist. While there are several variations in acupuncture styles, their purpose remains the same - to cure a variety of ailments and boost physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. If you’re not familiar with the approach, Japanese Acupuncture uses smaller, thinner, and fewer needles. The needles are inserted at a superficial level, just below the skin’s surface. Palpation, or light touch, is used as a fundamental means of diagnosis which helps formulate your unique treatment. Lastly, a treatment will always include moxa, a dried herb derived from the mugwort plant. Small, rice size pieces of moxa are burned on acupuncture points, this is referred to as Moxibustion. You'll feel a slight warmth, which is very relaxing!
As a practitioner, Brittany’s passion is simply to help people feel better. This means something different for each person who comes to see her. In her practice, she uses a variety of modalities including acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, tuina massage, nutritional counseling, Reiki, crystal therapy, aromatherapy, magnet therapy, and lifestyle modifications. Brittany looks forward to working with each patient to address individual needs and tailor treatments to their unique condition and goals. She is excited about empowering and educating her patients to take their health into their own hands so that they may heal both on and off the table.
