Credentials & Background

Shannon B. Chanler (Pinckney), NCAAOM Diplomate, Masters in Acupuncture

Shannon B. Chanler (Pinckney), NCAAOM Diplomate,
Masters in Acupuncture

"In clinic, it is not unusual for me to have a patient remark that while they are being treated for one condition, a secondary condition will clear up. A patient being treated for an incessant cough will tell me that their eczema they have had for eight years has cleared up. TCM impacts the whole person, spirit, mind and body. A sense of well being is a powerful gift to the person facing the challenges of healing from cancer. Acupuncture is known to be effective in reducing patient's anxiety."
