This may be your first experience with acupuncture as a treatment in integrative health. I would like this to be a pleasant, relaxing and safe treatment. All needles are sterile and disposable. All equipment will be explained and shown to you before use. Following is a bio of your acupuncturist and then an explanation of procedures and policies to ensure you have a clear, comfortable and professional relationship.
Irene McCormack is a licensed acupuncturist. She graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in Watertown, Massachusetts with a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine. This degree is the culmination of her pursuits to integrate both Western and Eastern healing practices. Irene has continued her Oriental studies and is certified in Shakuju Japanese style therapy from the Japanese Master Sensi Kobayashi Shoji.
She is also a Family Nurse Practitioner, Board Certified and has been a registered nurse for over 30 years. She is currently practicing as a nurse practitioner in North Falmouth. Irene has always searched beyond just treating presenting symptoms of her patients. Since the beginning of Irene’s nursing education at Laboure’, she has embraced the concepts of the person being treated as a trinity of the mind, body and spirit. In her quest to fully understand the connections, Irene studied the affects of the subconscious mind on the body, applied healing of the inner child and graduated from the Wellness Institute of Washington after a two year externship in 2000. Irene went on to further complete her studies in Metaphysics at Delphi University as a Meta physician in 2005.
Irene has been practicing acupuncture in the Cape for two years at Acupuncture and Associated Therapies in Mashpee. She also practiced in Medford, and now in Marshfield, Massachusetts.
