Abby Richardson, M.S., L.Ac, Dipl. O.M.
I have a great respect for what Chinese medicine can do to relieve suffering. I have devoted myself to helping people improve their quality of life by decreasing pain and discomfort.
I graduated with honors from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and was the recipient of the Clinical Excellence Award and the Distinguished Service Award. While in school I was the recipient of the nuherbs Herbal Times Scholarship. I also had the great honor of being a tutor for my fellow students as well as a teaching assistant. Between September 2016 and December 2017, in addition to my private practice, I was a member of the full-time faculty at the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, teaching both acupuncture and herbal medicine classes as well as supervising interns in the college's health center.
I left teaching in December 2017 in order to focus completely on my private practice at the Well-being Healing Center in Ithaca, NY.
Prior to entering the Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program at FLSAOM, I worked for 5 years as a teaching assistant in a pre-school class for children with autism, a job which I enjoyed immensely.
I received my Bachelors degree from New York University in 2002 with a dual major in Chinese Language and Photography.
I have lived just outside of Ithaca, NY on a small farm with my husband, 3 dogs, a small herd of goats, pigs, and a flock of chickens for the last 12 years.
