Elijah Hawken, M.S., L.Ac.
Elijah Hawken earned her Masters Degree in Science and Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM), graduating with top honors, from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego, after a four year post-graduate program of over 3000 hours of in-class and clinical training.
As an intern, Ms. Hawken had the opportunity to treat patients in many varied settings, including working alongside MDs, RNs and counselors treating terminally ill patients at the San Diego Hospice, treating the public at a no-cost community clinic run in conjunction with the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine, and a specialization in acupuncture orthopedics/sports medicine at the UCSD athletic training center in La Jolla, California.
In the state of California, where Ms. Hawken studied, Licensed Acupuncturists are granted the status of Primary Care Physicians due to their extensive training in both western biomedicine and Oriental medicine. Ms. Hawken is proud to carry this training to her patients in Texas, knowing she is qualified to safeguard their health.
Ms. Hawken is certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, and Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), is a member of the Chinese Herb Academy, the American Association of Oriental Medicine, and the Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She holds a Professional Certification in the treatment of Hepatitis C with Traditional Chinese Medicine (MRCEF). Ms. Hawken is licensed in the state of Texas, and was formerly a Registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist in Victoria, Australia.
I am honored to be carrying the tradition of such a powerful and ancient medicine into the lives of modern-day people, who can benefit so much from it.
