Welcome to Integrated Pathways to Healing
My name is Marisa Schembri, I am a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac.)
At Integrated Pathways to Healing my goal is to improve your health and quality of life through Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM has been practiced for thousands of years and has been used to treat a wide breadth of conditions from physical injury to chronic health conditions like autoimmune and gastrointestinal disorders.
Every person is an individual experiencing different life experiences, situations, and stressors; this makes each health condition as unique as the individual who is trying to recover from it. TCM is a dynamic system that looks at each person uniquely taking into consideration the whole picture, from what a person has going on internally to the external pressures that may be impacting them. This information allows me to customize your treatment plan, and modify it as your situation changes. Nothing is static, especially life.
Through TCM diagnosis I will use tools like acupuncture to rebalance and strengthen your body. Once the internal balance is attained your body will be able to heal itself as body systems begin to work at their optimal levels. In addition, your body will be able to handle any changes that come its way in a better manner.
I was introduced to TCM through personal experience in a situation conventional medicine had difficulty understanding. This ignited my passion to learn TCM and be able to help people through difficult times and pain.
After becoming an R.Ac. I continued my training through a mentorship with a mentor whose family lineage spans 24 generations in TCM. During this time I have dealt with and been exposed to a wide array of medical conditions. Most conditions can be impacted by TCM whether on its own or in concert with western medicine. Do not hesitate to ask if TCM can help you.
I look forward to working with you to improve your health and wellness.
