A licensed acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Marie Combs welcomes Los Alamos area residents to her new business, White Crane Acupuncture.

Clients are offered a wide variety of treatment options, including:

  • Acupuncture;
  • Traditional Chinese Herbalism;
  • Auricular acupuncture;
  • Microstim for needle-free treatments;
  • tuning fork treatments; and
  • Cupping therapy.

Combs has spent years studying these treatment methods and is a trained nurse. During her time as a nurse, she saw patients from all walks of life, Combs said. Some had minor complaints and others had disabling conditions.

“I chose this profession because I wanted to be able to help people with their health issues, but I didn’t want to be the kind of doctor who prescribed medication or surgery,” Combs said. “If I can help a person and bring them back to feeling healthy with Chinese medicine, then the client can avoid certain risks and side effects.”

At White Crane Acupuncture, Combs knows that one size doesn’t fit all, she said. For this reason, she spends time with each client creating their own treatment plan to achieve the best healing results.

Combs continues to invest in herself and her company to make the treatments as effective as possible. Recently she added an AcuGraph machine.

“The Acugraph works with the same technology as a polygraph, it measures skin conductivity,” Combs said. “I measure skin conductivity at certain points on my hands and feet and the device interprets the data and informs me of the Qi status in the meridians. It is a very useful and accurate device that tells me a lot about what is going on inside the person.

The AcuGraph clearly shows where the patient needs treatment and can track results to demonstrate how the patient is improving, Combs said.

White Crane Acupuncture also offers a variety of healing products. Combs makes its own body butters in a refreshing collection of floral scents and offers CBD creams.

Combs is looking forward to talking about his business, White Crane Acupuncture, during the Ignite Talks hosted by LA Makers Space at 5 p.m., June 16. She will share a brief five-minute conversation with the guests. She will be hosting her own event from 4-7 p.m., July 20 at UNM-Los Alamos, titled Full Body Health and Fitness. Combs will appear with a Reiki Master and a Fitness Trainer. Check the Facebook page, Full Body Health and Fitness, for event details.
