Inesa Zelepuhin is a third generation Medical Doctor and second generation acupuncturist. Her interest in acupuncture came during her first year of Medical University and grew during her Neurology Residency Program. She gained invaluable experience working with very knowledgeable Neurologists who used acupuncture as part of their treatments. She then completed an Acupuncture program for Medical Doctors in Belorussian Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education and successfully passed the certification examination. As Inesa’s practice grew she conducted many studies about effectiveness of acupuncture for treating neurological disorders and sports injuries.
In 2006 Inesa immigrated to United States and started a family. In 2012 she enrolled in American Institute of Alternative Medicine in order to obtain a degree of Professional Master’s Level of Acupuncture. During her internship she received a unique opportunity to study at the Beijing Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine in Beijing China. At the hospital Inesa worked with doctors who have the highest levels of acupuncture expertise and used techniques and methods not seen elsewhere.
The foundation of Inesa’s practice is a unique combination of experience and education as both a physician and an acupuncturist. She merges the best aspects of Western Medicine (diagnosis, physiology and disease etiology) with those of Chinese Medicine (treatment of the root of the disease instead of just the symptoms, restoring overall body balance without the side effects of medications).
Inesa is always a believer in the body‘s own strength and capacity to heal. Acupuncture is proven to be an effective form of therapy that encourages the natural healing process with no negative side effects. The focus of her practice is in neurological, musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries, emotional and physiological disorders, woman’s health and cosmetic facial rejuvenation.
