Erin Kumpf DACM, L.Ac
Hours: Friday's from 7:30 am - 3 pm
Erin Kumpf DACM, L.Ac, is a nationally board certified and state licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the states of New Jersey and New York. She graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. After suffering from irregular menstrual cycles for over 10 years that no doctor could seem to rectify, she was reluctant to proceed with the aggressive treatment plans being recommended to her. Frustrated that no one could identify the root cause of her woes, she had read how acupuncture and herbal medicine are remarkably adept at addressing women's reproductive health issues. After embarking on a holistic endeavor of regular acupuncture, herbs and diet adjustments, she quickly realized the beauty and elegance of this medicine. After 3 months of regular treatments, not only did she have a regular cycle, but felt more herself than she had in a long time.
Her own experience was so profound that she felt compelled to follow her heart and achieved a Doctorate in Chinese Medicine in order to help as many people as she can who are also frustrated with stubborn health issues. She has since specialized in treating the root causes to menstrual irregularities as well as associated issues such as weight gain. She approaches and respects each patient as a unique individual with unique ailments and strives to help them to wellness with personalized strategies.
