If you are looking for a place to start evaluating your overall health while informing your nutritional health plan, you've come to the right place. I strongly believe in the ability of acupuncture, whole-foods based nutrition, herbal therapy, and hypnosis to build and support a solid foundation of primary immunity and enjoy giving my patients the natural tools by which to feel their own strength and vibrant humanity.

At the Heart of Healing

Patty McDuffey LAc, traditional chinese medicine, acupuncture

My approach to patient care involves a merging of the Traditional Chinese medical knowledge I've acquired and nurtured, my intuitive abilities, and my Buddhist/Daoist philosophy-based perspective and understanding of life. I value and encourage the development of what Chinese medicine refers to as Zheng Qi, or strong life-affirming upright qi, and what western medicine refers to as the immune system. We will seek to connect to your body's inherent ability to heal, while utilizing Chinese medical diagnosis to understand where basic imbalances reside in your body as we develop a set of nourishing tools for you to use in your day-to-day life.


If you are in for acupuncture, you will receive a traditional Chinese medical treatment that may include cupping, guasha, massage, Tibetan singing bowl therapy, infrared heat, as well as herbal and dietary recommendations. If you have scheduled a telehealth herbal consultation appointment, once we have a clear snapshot of your body's story, you will receive a personalized comprehensive initial treatment plan involving recommended diet and lifestyle changes and a custom prescription involving whole-food based vitamin/mineral supplements and a combination of Chinese, western and Native herbs. If you have completed a complementary hypnosis discovery call and we have concluded that hypnosis is a good fit for you, no matter where you are located, I will be happy to guide you through the beautiful process of rewiring your brain for success and happiness.


This is a collaborative process. I am your health partner. I am here to listen to you, to provide an objective and educated approach to how you can heal and find your way to a healthier and more inspired life. Let's get started!

You will find that I practice from a trauma-informed perspective. I specialize in chronic pain, addiction recovery, internal medicine, and mental/emotional disorders with underlying post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I have worked extensively with our Military Veterans and am pleased to be able to apply these skills learned to a virtual practice.
