Linda Wentz

L.Ac, CMT, HHC

Linda is a National Board Certified (NCCAOM) and Licensed Acupuncturist. She received her diploma of acupuncture from the Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is authorized to practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist by the Commonwealth of Virginia and Board of Medicine.

“I have always been interested in health and wellness and maintaining it through a balanced life. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a whole medicine and also is a preventative practice. Practitioners not only will address the main health concern but will advise ways to maintain good health. We don’t just look at one symptom or ailment of a person but look at all imbalances and assess the root cause and connections. I wanted to practice acupuncture to help patients feel better, naturally and achieve optimal wellness through acupuncture, nutrition and stress management.
I have been in practice since 2002.”

“The combination of all these disciplines work synergistically for complete health and vitality. I am a firm believer in what Oriental medicine can offer as an
alternative or as a component, integrated with Western medicine. I have extensive personal experience with diet and nutrition and orthopedic treatments with working with all kinds of athletes for many years. I am very sensitive to the needs of couples trying to conceive and to support women throughout pregnancy. Patients who have had limited success with western treatments alone often see improvement in symptoms when working with a Chinese medical practitioner.”
