Virginia Mims, MS, LAc, Dipl OM, NCMP
Board Certified Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Demonstrating her dedication to women's health at midlife and beyond, Virginia is the only double board certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist in the country to have earned the Certified Menopause Practitioner credential (NCMP) from the North American Menopause Society.
Originally from New York, Virginia was the first Licensed Acupuncturist credentialed to practice at Nyack Hospital, where she began to integrate acupuncture into a Western medical setting.
Imbued with rather feminist sensibilities, Virginia strongly believes in the importance of woman-to-woman support, and the wisdom that is engendered when women collaborate. She views treatment with Chinese medicine as just such a collaboration, in which individual treatment is not predetermined, but continuously honed based on the patient's evolving symptoms, needs and preferences.
