My name is Orit and I am a Chinese medicine therapist focusing on women’s health.
I provide acupuncture and herbal treatments for many disorders that women suffer from at any age in a private clinic I own since 2004.
Since 2007 I have been focusing on the treatment of vulvodynia, successfully treated hundreds of women who suffered from vulvar and vaginal pain.
As one of a few Chinese medicine therapists in the world with vast experience in the treatment of chronic vulvar and vaginal pain, I am aware of the importance of sharing my experience and knowledge with fellow practitioners, therefore I am writing articles, lectures and teaching workshops about it.
In 2004, after completing 6 months of training programs in 2 hospitals in China I graduated from the 4-year Chinese medicine program at Reidman International College for Complementary and Integrative Medicine in Tel Aviv, IL.
Over the years I have studied from many teachers in different courses and conventions most influenced by master Tung’s method in acupuncture, and my herbal treatments are mostly influenced by the Shang Han Lun and Li Dong Yuan's approach.
In December 2018 at age 44 I fulfilled an old dream and along with my son relocated our life to Amsterdam (NL). After completing the HBO training program I registered as a healthcare provider in the Netherlands with an AGB code and joined the Dutch association LVNT.
