Hi. I am Elizabeth Moose, LAc, owner of Balcones Acupuncture Clinic, and I would love to see how I can help you.
I have been an enthusiastic advocate of Traditional Chinese Medicine for over thirty years now, and I continue to love and appreciate the power, elegance, and eminent practicality of this medicine.
I have been practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine full time in Austin since 1992. I also spent eleven years as an instructor at the Academy of Oriental Medicine Austin (AOMA) where I taught the year-long Theory and Philosophy course and served as a clinical supervisor.
I moved to Austin in 1991 after I earned a degree in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz. I then spent another three and half years at the Five Branches Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I also went off to China after my schooling and spent some time living and working in a hospital in the city of Xia Men in Fu Jian province.
I started this journey in college, when for a field study I learned Jin Shin Do style acupressure for Project PRES (Physical Response Education System) which was a project in the early 80’s in the Santa Cruz county special education classrooms which delivered acupressure to many of its students. I was so impressed with my experience there that I went on to my greater study. I continued to volunteer for the project for a total of four years while still living in the area.
Over the years I have acquired a great deal of experience. I have studied different styles of acupuncture and have treated a wide variety of concerns.
I am proud to consider myself an educator as well as a practitioner. I am good at communicating, and for those interested parties am able to explain the theory and process of this medicine as well as deliver a quality treatment.
In addition to my practice, I have designed and taught a class for lay people on the basics of Chinese Medical theory and self-care. I have given many talks and lectures and would be happy to hear from you if you need a speaker on this topic.
I would love to see what I can do for you. Please contact me if you are interested and we can start the process!
