Valerie Hanna is a NCCAOM certified and licensed acupuncturist. She is also a registered nurse who has been practicing for many years. During her career, Valerie has worked at a variety of places, including the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program, the East-West Clinic in Woodbury, and Abbott Northwestern Hospital where she was the first person to practice acupuncture in that hospital setting.
She has helped people with a wide range of health issues from pain control, exercise, narcotic withdrawal, and relaxation to women's health issues such as systemic yeast infections. Valerie has been a nurse in medical/surgical, orthopedic, and mental health units.
Valerie is excited about her recent study of Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET). NAET is a revolutionary treatment for allergies and allergy-related conditions. It is a drug free, natural solution to deactivate the body's intolerances, sensitivities and allergies. It utilizes acupuncture, acupressure, and muscle testing to find balance in the body — even in the presence of the allergen (see NAET.com). NAET is helpful for everything from a pollen allergy to multiple chemical sensitivities to Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Valerie is looking forward to sharing all the tools and skills she's developed during her extensive health care career with the patients at Back to Balance!
