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. While I enjoy the variety of treating many health issues, I specialize in migraine headaches, chronic pain, and women’s health. I am a founding member of the Tucson Chapter of the National Coalition of Chronic Pain Providers and Professionals and am passionate about helping those suffering from chronic pain enjoy a better quality of life.
I am a native Tucsonan who loves to travel. I stay active with yoga, pilates and dance, and am enjoying the adventures of raising a family with my husband. If there is any time left in the day, you can find me with my nose in a book.
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 have always had an interest in anatomy, fitness and health. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Education at the University of Arizona, and taught middle school science for 6 years. I had plans to go on to graduate school for child psychology, but after some soul-searching I realized that I wanted to study a more holistic approach to physical and mental health. The Chinese Medicine view that emotions and symptoms in the body are not separate, but must be treated together really resonated with me. I find this to be true over and over, our body is a complex system and it’s only when you look at the bigger picture that major shifts take place. 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.
