Angela Kociolek L.Ac. Dipl. Ac.

“While I was immersing myself in study and forging my second career in Oriental medicine, I had also been on another multi-year journey – the quest to have a child. After many failed attempts at assisted reproductive technologies, many of which were less than dignifying, it was as if my choice to go to acupuncture school was the universe’s way of granting my wish. In the first month of my clinical internship, my son was conceived naturally. I largely credit Chinese medicine – acupuncture, herbs and moxibustion – for this amazing blessing at the age of 42. If I needed any re-affirmation of my choice to become a practitioner of this system of medicine, becoming pregnant naturally with its help was it.”

– Angie Kociolek

Acupuncture Practice Philosophy
Rootstock Acupuncture promotes each individual’s own potential to cultivate new growth and abundance. New growth could mean physical healing, emotional balance, or clarity of thought. Abundance can be robust energy, fertility, gratitude from being pain-free – or something completely different.

Rootstock Acupuncture is a strong community supporter. Please contact Angie if you would like to discuss a partnership!
