Queenpin is excited to welcome Emilce Sheppard to the team! Emilce will be joining us from Blacksburg on Wednesdays for private acupuncture starting Dec 5th. We already have plans to add days as the new year warms up, so don’t be sad if that doesn’t work with your schedule. While she’s new to Queenpin, she isn’t new to healthcare. She has been in practice as an acupuncturist for a few years now and has a background in physical therapy and yoga. She’s the perfect practitioner for our weekend-warriors, athletes, any anyone with a shoulder/knee/hip that knows when it’s going to rain.
Emilce was born in Virginia, and raised in Japan – sparking her love of East Asian Medicine. She began her career in healthcare at the Jefferson College of Health Sciences, going on to become a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant. Emilce added yoga to her tool-belt, becoming a certified Ashtanga Yoga Instructor, including specializing in Pre/Post Natal Yoga. She earned her four year diploma of Acupuncture from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine. Her work now blends her background in physical therapy, yoga, intentional movement, and acupuncture. Emilce also specializes in Women’s Health, especially pre and post natal care.
Emilce also loves getting out for a hike, and continuing her yoga practice. Make your appointment with her here!
