District Acupuncture, LLC, is the private wellness practice of Annette Tapia-Cornet. Annette originally moved to Washington, DC to work as an attorney, but soon realized it was not her true calling. She discovered a passion for the healing arts after using yoga and alternative therapies to recover from a serious injury to both ankles. It was not long before she decided to give up her full-time law practice to pursue a new career in alternative medicine. She completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2007, and has been teaching in the DC area ever since. She has taught vinyasa, yin, restorative, and pilates mat formats in various area gyms, businesses, and studio locations. Her passion for yoga practice stems from her belief in the healing power of movement. Annette loves Eastern Medicine because it is a holistic practice taking into account all the emotional, environmental and physical factors affecting an individual. Her legal background places her in a unique position to truly relate to the hard-working – and often stressed – residents of Washington, DC and surrounding areas. Patients appreciate her ability to explain the loftier concepts behind acupuncture in straightforward terms, and to guide them in better maintaining their own health. Ms. Tapia-Cornet is originally from South Florida, and earned both her B.A. and J.D. from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. She completed a terminal degree in Acupuncture at the Tai Sophia Institute (now the Maryland University for Integrative Health) in Laurel, MD. She is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She maintains active licenses to practice Acupuncture in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
