Tansy Briggs, L.OM.
Tansy M. Briggs began her practice in New Mexico in 2002 where she ran a private practice. In 2011, she sold her practice and relocated to the Philadelphia area and has brought with her a unique approach with a focus on the whole family. Tansy obtained her bachelors degree from Clark University in Worcester, MA in Environment, Technology and Society, concentrating in Biology and Chemistry, which met the requirements for pre-med. However, Tansy became more interested in how the body works ‘the best’ and pursued a career in Natural Medicine. This led to Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, NM where she obtained her Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) in 2001.
Tansy brings her depth and knowledge of treating patients over a decade of successful family practice with all health care issues from infants to adults. Although comfortable in treating any health issue, Tansy’s most noted successes are in the treatment of stress, pain and injuries, chronic illnesses, life transitions, peri-menopause and menopause, heart health, endocrine health, hormone balancing, correcting metabolic imbalances, health and emotional issues affecting children (infants through teens), fertility, pregnancy (all stages) and post-partum care. Tansy is compassionate and provides gentle care in all aspects and stages of your life and health. She practices integrative Oriental Medicine: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Therapeutic Nutrition, and other Natural Therapeutics, to provide unique and comprehensive care. Treatment and care regularly complements with conventional health care.
Tansy joined the Healing Arts Center in 2011 and is also a current adjunct faculty member and clinical supervisor at the Won Institute of Graduate Studies.
