Christina Robich has been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years and has practiced in some of New York’s most valued institutions. She was the Head Nurse of Cardio-vascular surgery at Bellevue Hospital Center and worked at the Westchester Medical Center ICU.
In the early 90’s she desired to enhance her education and entered the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program at Mercy College. Christina’s studies included four years of Western sciences as well as formal Oriental training administered by some of the best and most diverse professors in this country. She interned at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, New York as part of New York Medical College and worked on her research thesis in the orthopedic department and surgical area. This research has been proposed for publication by many of the physicians that she was privileged to work with. Her formal training is in Traditional Chinese Medicine, but she has integrated many other disciplines into her practice. She has also learned to successfully combine her Western Medicine training into her practice making her healing methods unique and quite effective.
In August 2000, Christina received a Master’s degree and became a Diplomat in Acupuncture. Christina is currently licensed in the State of New York as an Acupuncturist and as a Registered Nurse and is also a trained Herbologist.
