Dr. Christine Chang is a Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist.  She is also a fellow of the American Board of Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), an accredited group of International Fertility and Reproductive Specialists (https://aborm.org)  She was born and raised in the northern part of Taiwan.  While growing up, she saw how balanced nutrition and active lifestyles helped people to stay healthy.  From a young age, she knew she wanted to help people to live healthily and have a better quality of life.

In practice, she holds a strong interest in Women’s Health including menstrual cycle regulation, hormone balance, PMS, fertility and pregnancy support and menopause.  As an ABORM Fellow, she is certified as a fertility specialist and has done extra training and research in the field of Integrative Reproductive Medicine. As well, with modalities like Acupuncture, Cupping and Chinese herbs, she has had a lot of success in helping patients with insomnia, smoking cessation, musculoskeletal pain, sports injuries, digestive health, hormonal and mood imbalances.

Dr, Christine is also certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and offers this service at Thyme. Facial acupuncture is a natural and effective way to obtain a healthy and youthful appearance. It works by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen fibers as well as improving the micro-circulation in the skin to bring out healthy and even skin tones. Facial acupuncture can also improve acne, rosacea and age spots and other skin conditions. Each facial acupuncture session takes about 90 minutes with specialized micro needles made for this specific therapy.  Some of the benefits of facial acupuncture may include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles (though we love seeing where your smiles have been), puffiness around the eyes or other areas of the face, and a little facial acupuncture glow.

Dr. Christine is committed to empowering her patients to understand their bodies and to make appropriate decisions for their health through nutrition, health habits, and emotional support.  She firmly believes that health is built on the connection between mental, physical and emotional balance, in another words, the whole person. She works closely with each patient by evaluating these three aspects when identifying the underlying causes of illness. She highly values the innate healing within all of uher patients and she strives to provide them with the best care to meet their needs in conjunction with the Naturopathic Philosophies.
