Leanne Pusateri, Acupuncturist
My passion in life is to help as many people as possible. I recognize that everyone is different, and no one type of healing will help everyone. My journey started in my 30’s when I discovered herbal medicine. I got my BS in herbal sciences then a MS in acupuncture and oriental medicine from Bastyr university in Seattle, WA. While in school I also got my massage license, specializing in small animal massage. I also received training in flower essences for humans and animals.
I’ve been practicing since 2008 and in that time I’ve come to adore what I do. I’ve helped hundreds of people; relieving various pain, balancing hormones and helping people manage their stress and anxiety. I’m so lucky to have found my calling.
Although I help nearly anyone who comes to me, my calling is to help people suffering from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. These two conditions are complicated, varied and completely controllable with natural means. There’s a lot of information out there and sifting through all of it can be daunting. I’m constantly finding better ways to help people get back the lives they’ve lost because they’re too tired or in pain to function.
I believe that chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia aren’t diseases. They are conditions. People can practice getting better or they can live getting better. Practicing means trying things they’ve read about and when they feel better they go back to how they were living. They get worse again and give up. Living means changing how they live, and winning every morning because they’re full of energy.
In my spare time, I love to go hiking, and finding new plants I haven’t identified. Every once in a while I get to massage dogs, which is incredibly rewarding … and fun!
Other additional training I’ve taken on is: NAET – and allergy elimination technique, Dr. Teitelbaum’s training in chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, and Dr. Fuhrman’s nutrition counseling program.
As I said earlier, everyone is an individual. So everyone’s case is different. The same treatment will not heal everyone. I like to have a lot of different goodies in my healing bag so I can tailor each treatment differently.
Give me a call or email me. I’d love to talk to you about what I can do for you.
