About Me

Acupuncture TucsonZylla Acupuncture became my business name after I moved back to Tucson full time from Boston.  I named my business after my mom’s family name because she is why I became interested in alternative medicine as well as working with people and their health. I am a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the states of Arizona and Massachusetts.  I received my training in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine in Tucson, AZ.

I hold a B.A in Holistic Health from Prescott College as well as certification in Shiatsu, Tuina, Massage, and craniosacral therapy.  I’ve held a private practice in Tucson for the last 15 years.  For the past 7 years I have have maintained a successful practice in acupuncture and Tuina both in Boston and in Tucson treating a wide range of conditions.  I am part of the Supportive Care for Healing team at Banner Health Cancer Center providing acupuncture for patients interested in a holistic approach to their treatment plan. Because of my background in Western Sciences and Eastern philosophy, my approach to acupuncture concentrates on the benefits of combining both methodologies. I find that my ability to obtain results is because of my background and my intuition. I am a very hand on person and have many tools as well as ways of looking at the different issues that people come through my office seeking relief from.

Illness, chronic pain, and stress are not just a result of physical imbalance, they can be due to an emotional and/or spiritual imbalance as well.  Every treatment is customized and based on the individual.  Cosmetic acupuncture treatments are no exception, those that choose this form of treatment will experience visually pleasing results along with all-over body benefits. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are a lifestyle, and a preventive medicine.
