We are so excited to announce the addition of Dr. Shannan Walker to our practice!
Dr. Shannan Walker is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Maryland.
Dr. Walker talks about how she got into acupuncture:
“My first introduction to acupuncture was 15 years ago for help with sinusitis.
I suffered with sinus issues all of my life. I never went anywhere without sinus
medication. I had blinding sinus headaches and a continuous runny nose. Fifteen years ago I had just started a new job and my coworker suggested I try acupuncture. After my acupuncturist helped me with the sinusitis, I enrolled in Acupuncture school and have been practicing for over 10 years.”
Shannan is from Chicago, where she received her Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She then went on to the PCOM San Diego campus to finish her Doctorate with honors.She is certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
