Lainey received her Masters of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and earned her license in acupuncture from the New York State Board of Education. She is a member or the Acupuncture Society of New York and has further certification in Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture. Lainey lives by the philosophy that good health care not only treats illness but cultivates wellness, and that medicine should consider the whole person rather than just target disease. These ideas drew her to the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine and drive her to cultivate working relationships with practitioners of other disciplines.
Lainey became interested in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine after struggling with frustrating food allergies and abdominal pain. The impact that Traditional Chinese Medicine had on these symptoms was so substantial that Lainey shifted gears to pursue a career as an acupuncture and herbalist. As a result, she finds particular joy in using Chinese Medicine to treat conditions such as autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, abdominal and gynecological disorders.
