My name is Kate Campos and I am a Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist with a Masters degree in Acupuncture from The Asian Institute of Medical Studies and my Chinese Herbal certification from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, AZ. I am a native Tucsonan but have traveled extensively. I stay active with yoga and dance, and am enjoying the adventures of raising a family with my husband.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Education at the University of Arizona, and taught middle school science for 6 years. I have always felt drawn to working with children and adolescents in the areas of education, health and well being. My experiences as a teacher had some wonderful aspects, but I felt the need to help people on their journey to wellness at one-on-one level. Chinese Medicine has given me the tools to really get to know my patients and help guide them towards lasting health. I feel very privileged as an acupuncturist to help initiate the powerful healing that the body is capable of. While I enjoy the variety of treating many health issues, I specialize in women’s health, anxiety, and pain.
Why I was drawn to Chinese Medicine:
I began receiving treatments at the age of 14 to regulate my cycle and was amazed at the power of acupuncture. Finding this medicine at such a young age was a real blessing for me because not only did I receive treatments for a specific condition, but I was also taught how to modify my lifestyle and pay attention to the subtleties of my body. This resonated with my yoga practice and I felt so much more empowered and balanced. Once I was open to the possibilities, I returned back to Chinese Medicine as other ailments popped up over the years, whether it be a sports injury, or the flu, it seemed to have a way of helping whatever came my way. I learned that many of the minor discomforts that we are told are just a part of life could be treated. I was amazed at what this practice had to offer and I wanted to be able to share this gift with others.
