Liza Watkins, M.Ac., L.Ac.
A foot in both worlds...
Liza Watkins is a Maryland state licensed Acupuncturist. She also has some training in Zero Balancing (ZB), a body work modality that focuses on the skeleton and is a perfect companion for acupuncture. Liza received her Master's degree in Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Health located in Laurel, MD. She is trained in various Five-Element & TCM practices.
Liza is an excellent listener with a quiet and patient disposition. She has an intimate understanding of what it is like to be a patient of western medicine. She deals with chronic pain on a daily basis and has to work hard to maintain wellness. This provides her with a unique perspective as a practitioner as she is also a patient- "I know how hard it can be to be a patient, and how devastating it can be when a practitioner doesn't show interest or compassion." Liza understands what it is like to be passed around and ignored by western medicine. She has also been lucky enough to find some amazing doctors and practitioners to be on her team to help her in her pursuit of health. "Having the right team of professionals helping on the road to health is essential."
Liza's philosophy is to be a diligent listener and to work with her patients and their practitioners to find the best path forward in their health and healing. She is dedicated to making connections with great doctors and practitioners to bring even more great people onto the team where needed. She will use all her knowledge and resources to help in her patient's pursuit of health and wellness.
