Christy Rollyson


Christy Rollyson has been working in the healing profession for over 15 years.  She is a 2011 graduate of the American Institute of Alternative Medicine located in Columbus Ohio, where she studied with teachers from Beijing, China.  Ms. Rollyson began her journey in Western Medicine after two of her children were born with health concerns. In an effort to offer her children the best care with the least amount of adverse effects, Ms. Rollyson began researching alternative medicine.  Finding the balance between Western and Alternative medicine has been an important part of providing the best care available for her family.  Eventually all of Ms. Rollyson’s research brought her to acupuncture and she has found that its gentle and effective results for children and adults speak for themselves.
