Hadaza Gonzalez had the honor of receiving her Masters in Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine from the prestigious Texas Health and Science University. She is a certified licensed Acupuncturist and herbalist with the Texas Medical Board and with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
In her 7 years as a practitioner of Chinese medicine she has specialized in women’s health, neurological disorders, pain management, digestive issues and emotional distress. She greatly understands the impact nutrition has on the state of the mind and body and educates her clients in practicing preventive medicine through recommended dietary practices and herbal remedies. Her goals are to help people find physical and emotional relief, balance and empowerment through the reconnection of mind, body and spirit.
Her love for holistic medicine and determination towards helping others was born out of her own healing. Understanding that the mind plays an integral part in the healing process, she practices living a mindful life and incorporates meditation, yoga, breath work, Qi gong and prayer as daily practices. These help her to maintain a state of balance and well-being.
