Nona Nazari is a Registered Acupuncturist, receiving her doctorate of traditional Chinese medicine from the Tzu Chi International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nona is also a registered yoga teacher, with more than ten years of experience under her belt. As an acupuncture practitioner, Nona’s areas of special interest include treating patients with psychological conditions, such as anxiety and depression. In addition, she focuses on working with patients who have unexplained infertility, autoimmune disorders, pain syndromes (chronic and acute), addictions, and chemical dependency issues.
In her treatments, Nona uses some of the classical healing methods that are a part of Chinese medicine, which include cupping and moxibustion (a type of classical heat therapy). Nona’s healing philosophy is to address all aspects of her patients—physical, emotional, and spiritual. She believes that in order to heal one dimension, all of the others must also be brought into balance. She says, I believe that our bodies have the capacity to heal themselves when they are provided with the right tools, and Nona is committed to providing each patient with the right tools.
Nona’s education and skills are augmented by a number of professional experiences. As a part of her education, she studied in Taiwan, and has traveled around the world to study yoga with masters in the field. Nona has also worked with a mentor for several years, gaining knowledge and experience in treating patients with moxibustion. She volunteers at a seasonal moxibustion series, which involves treating patients who have a variety of health conditions over twelve weekends each year.
Nona spends her time outside of the clinic meditating and practicing yoga. She also enjoys being outdoors, especially in the winter. You can find her hiking in the mountains and spending time with her dogs—she’s a dog lover and is devoted to rescuing dogs that need a home.
