MEET YOUR ACUPUNCTURIST
Dr. Brittany Woodard-Hampton
Licensed Acupuncturist, Nutritionist, & Herbalist
Acupuncturists help patients manage pain or rebalance their “qi” or energy flow by inserting very thin needles to stimulate healing. Using ancient Chinese medicinal concepts of energy meridians, acupuncturists are trained to know precisely where to insert needles at specific human body points to heal specific ailments.
Becoming an acupuncturist
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Brittany is a native of Atlanta, Ga. where her love for science and medicine blossomed. During her formative years she participated in several summer science programs and as a high school student she was given the opportunity to take several classes at Morehouse School of Medicine on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. It was in these classes her love and curiosity for alternative medicine developed. After high school she harnessed that curiosity into becoming a research assistant for topics such as the antimicrobial properties of common spices.
Brittany Woodard received her Bachelors of Science from Tennessee State University, where she studied both Communications and Psychology. As an undergraduate, she became a Reiki Master. She is a recent graduate of Phoenix College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona where she obtained a Masters in Oriental Medicine which includes Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine. She is also a certified Holistic Nutritionist.
She is an avid researcher and has a passion for learning. This passion is carried over to her patients. She strongly believes the job of a physician is to give the body the materials it needs to heal itself and that is what she does. She incorporates Acupuncture specifically Channel Theory and 5 Element with eastern herbal medicine and both eastern and western nutrition to create a complete and unique healing system for her patients.
In her spare time she enjoys reading, hiking, and hanging out with friends and family, traveling and helping under served communities. She has been able to combine her love for international travel by annually volunteering on medical mission trips.
