"I am passionately inspired by the relevancy of Chinese Medicine in addressing our modern day Obgyn/ Fertility healthcare needs, and by it's uniquely gentle precision for improving the holistic well being of individuals and families who make it a part of their lives."
Shira Dobratz earned her MSOM (Master of Science in Oriental Medicine) from Southwest Acupuncture College in New Mexico. Her intentions with natural medicine have been the same for the past 20 yrs- to walk alongside people in the various stages of wellness, while sharing the time tested, health promoting and noninvasive therapies of Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Herbs, Nutrition, Exercise, and Tuina).
Shira’s ever growing passion for reproductive health led her to an advanced fellowship through ABORM (American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine), which is currently the top certifying organization in the world to define the standard of care, skill set and knowledge base for reproductive medicine practitioners in her field.
Along with her specialty in hormonal care, fertility, prenatal and postnatal care, she’s also experienced to treat the full range of physiology involved in general family medicine. Treating pain is another area of advanced experience, including emotional and lifestyle factors involved. Having spent several years treating collaboratively with other Acupuncturists and Herbalist, Physicians, Midwives, Naturopathic Doctors, Nurses, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and Massage Therapists, she is well versed in integrative medicine. Whether as part of the mix, or as a stand alone therapy, she is very pleased with the relevance and effectiveness that her medicine, and her personal professional technique, contributes to current healthcare needs.
Her clinical approach is gentle, precise and caring. She values spiritual health and personal awareness as important components of the healing journey, and her treatment strategy is always aimed at impacting the immediate concern as well as equipping people for long lasting positive results.
In addition to being an Acupuncturist and Herbalist, Shira is also a wife and mother, artist and a poet. She loves to cook, celebrate, socialize, spend time in nature, watch or play soccer, camp and road-trip with her husband and young daughter.
