Bridgette Shea, L.Ac., MAcOM, is a licensed acupuncturist and wellness educator who has been practicing traditional healing modalities for more than 20 years. Her private practice is an integration of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, and she enjoys teaching workshops on Eastern wisdom. The author of Handbook of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, she lives in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Bridgette's love of ancient healing practices started with a trip to the Healing Temple of Aesklepios in Old Epidaurus, Greece in 1992. Having had a meaningful dream life since an early age, finding the Asklepion dream healing temple complex was life changing. It opened a new door that connected dreaming not only with the occult sciences but with healing as a whole. Since then, Bridgette has been studying, practicing, and sharing ancient healing wisdom and how it can be used in our modern times.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies with a minor in Communications from SUNY Albany, and her Master’s from Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine. While working on her MAcOM, she received extensive training in acupuncture, herbal medicine, and translation of Chinese medical and Taoist texts. Prior to this, Bridgette travelled through India studying yoga, Sanskrit, pranayama, and meditation. Since the mid nineties she has been studying and teaching energy healing and transformational bodywork.
Bridgette lives with her family in Saratoga Springs, NY. When she is not spending quality time at home, working in her private practice Ageless Acupuncture, or writing, she is teaching workshops on energy medicine, healthy breathing, and the wisdom contained in living traditional medicines.
