Nationally Certified and Licensed to practice Acupuncture in Virginia, and Maryland Heather Ruth received her Master's Degree in Oriental Medicine from the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida graduating magna cum laude in 2002.
A northern Virginia native, Heather began her training in holistic health care with the practice of Reiki in 1995, receiving her Level III Advanced Practitioner's certification in 1997. Pursuing her passion, Heather began her training in BodyTalk in 1996, and continues to maintain her certification in both basic and advanced techniques.
