Dr. Christine Yastrzemski is the Founder / Owner of A Way of Life Acupuncture, PLLC. She found the benefits of Acupuncture after suffering debilitating migraines while working in Corporate America. She was able to find relief from migraines by using acupuncture and herbal remedies. Her curiosity in trying to understand how acupuncture helped her migraines, led her to years of reading everything she could about acupuncture to try to understand how it works. After 3 years of self-study, Dr. Christine decided to leave a successful corporate job to return to school for her Master's in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is passionate about helping others find relief from whatever ails them. Dr. Christine furthered her education and received her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) from Pacific College of Health Sciences.
