Marija Joksimovic MS, LAc
Marija (it’s pronounced ‘Maria’) earned her Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City. During her four years of study she received extensive training in three different styles of acupuncture: Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), Kiiko Matsumoto style (KM) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She has over 2500 hours of training in acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, practical clinical experience, and adjunct therapies which include: sports acupuncture, Zero Balancing, Amma massage, moxibustion, cupping, electric stimulation, gua sha, auriculotherapy and lifestyle counseling.
Marija pursued a career in Acupuncture after spending over a decade working in marketing and advertising, where she specialized in graphic and web design. Although she loved her career, she began suffering from chronic neck and wrist pain caused by working long hours at a computer. Through this experience she learned how small discomforts of ordinary life have the potential to become painfully disruptive and disabling when left untreated. Since then she has devoted herself to the study of healing through Chinese Medicine and is committed to helping people who are experiencing physical and emotional pain.
Marija believes in the concept of mind-body medicine, treating the whole person not just their symptoms. Whether treating muscle pain, athletic injuries, chronic conditions, or working with mental and emotional issues, it is Marija’s goal to help people return to a state of well being and to feel good inside and out, more able to live life fully.
