Our mission is to empower our patients with knowledge of their options amongst the endless possibilities of both Western and Eastern Medicine in order to help them make educated decisions and reach their optimum level of health.

Born and raised in Quebec City Canada, Dr. Perkins received her Bachelor degree in Occupational Therapy from University Laval in 1993. In 1995, career opportunities arose but it meant she would have to relocate, leaving everything behind. Armed with a back pack and a handful of English words in her vocabulary, she landed at the Tampa International Airport, eager to rise to the challenge of starting an Occupational Therapy department for a very well know Rehabilitative Center in Palm Harbor.

Blessed by the birth of her son in 1998, Dr. Perkins decided to continue pursuing her passion for the medical field, looking for a new direction that would offer her more flexibility to accommodate her new role as a mother. She became a Massage Therapist in 1999, graduating from Bahkti Academy.

How did Chinese Medicine come to be? As an infant, her son was struggling with chronic ears infections. After several rounds of antibiotics without resolution, it was recommended to consider putting tubes in his ears. Before agreeing to this more invasive option, she wanted to make sure that all other options had been explored. Chinese Medicine took care of the situation permanently within 3 days! Curious, she started testing this marvelous promising Medicine with her own health challenges. After a very short period of time, health issues with which she had been struggling with for years, were all going away one by one.

It became abundantly clear to her that Eastern Medicine was going to be the next modality that she was going to add to her already extensive arsenal of tools previously acquired from the amazing world of Traditional Western Medicine. She graduated from the Florida Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2004.

I went for neuropathy after chemotherapy, and after three visits, it was gone! Truly miraculous!
I never have to worry about them overbooking appointments. They definitely believe in quality over quantity and leave more than enough time in between appointments. Not only do my appointments never get canceled last minute, they take time out of their day to send me a reminder so I don't forget. They are extremely reliable and have never canceled on me. The entire appointment was so relaxing, which shocked me! I wasn't pressured into buying anything, we didn't even talk about money! Other acupuncturists should learn from them! They were ready to see me when I showed up for my appointment. I never had to wait for them to show up. I didn't wait long at all. My appointment started on time.

They are always prepared for my appointment and remember everything about me. It's pretty impressive how personalized the care is at this clinic. I love that they never cancel appointments last minute here. I can always count on them to keep my original appointment or at least let me know way in advance if there's an issue. Let me just say that this clinic is in one of the safest areas around and you will be pleasantly surprised at how lovely the surroundings are. It gives you a real peace of mind. The table I laid on during my treatment felt really nice. I was so comfortable.
