Valerie Lyvers, Lac, Dipl OM, Mstom, is a graduate of Pacific College of Oriental medicine Chicago. After studying theatre for 4 years at Columbia College Chicago, she discovered she had a passion for learning about the body by means of “Awareness Through Movement” Classes such as yoga, Feldenkrais, dance, and psychocalisthenics. She has been a Chicago performer for over 10 years.
A nationally certified acupuncturist and herbalist, Valerie combines acupuncture with food therapy and lifestyle recommendations to educate her patients on ways to heal. At Pcom, she completed over 3,307 hours of combined study, 900 of which were hands on clinical hours. She has also interned at 4 other Chicago clinics in her free time, and completed an externship at the Chicago Women’s health center. She believes patients should be as involved in their treatment plans as possible, and encourages questions from patients (and their other healthcare providers). Valerie is so excited to be working with Park Ridge families at Aligned Modern Health!
