Chinese Herbal Medicine
Tiffany C. Hoyt is an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. She holds a Master’s degree in Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrated Health, is an NCCAOM Board certified Diplomat of acupuncture and herbal medicine, and holds certificates in Toyohari—painless, non-insertion Japanese acupuncture, as well as Reiki and SoTai body therapies. She earned a black belt from the Hung Tao Choy Mei Kung Fu Academy. In her practice she emphasizes healing through the eight traditional branches of Chinese medicine: acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, exercise, meditation, dietary therapy, bodywork, and feng shui.
Tiffany graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco with a specialty in gynecology and pain. She was a board member of the Toyohari Association of North America (TANA) and has lectured on Chinese medicine in everyday life. Her experience has convinced her that good habits and living passionately is the best way to live a long, healthy life.
Tiffany is thrilled to be working at the Center for Integrative Medicine. “I believe the work we are doing here represents the best combination of integrated health systems. I am impressed by the commitment of my fellow clinicians; they are not only some of the best practitioners in their fields, each of them is willing to spend the time to insure their patients’ improved health,” she says.
“I have been getting occasional migraines since I was very young and recently they have gotten much more frequent. When I started seeing Tiffany, I had tried many Western medicine paths that were not working for me, and was feeling desperate for a solution. After our first visit, for the first time in a long time, I felt there may be a possible end to my migraine trouble. The treatments I get from her are always different, fine-tuned to address what we talk about before each. Regardless of what she does, I always leave feeling recharged and like my nervous energy has become focused, allowing me to deal with the world in an effective and positive way. With her guidance and herb prescriptions my migraines have decreased to about one or two a month, my skin is as clear as it’s ever been and I feel calm and hopeful. And I can’t remember the last time I came down with a cold! Tiffany is an amazing listener and she gives her whole self during our sessions. I am grateful for her role in my life.”
