Constance Evans holds a Masters degree (MAc) in Acupuncture from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia MD and a Masters degree (MPT) in Physical Therapy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has over 25 years of experience in clinical practice and university teaching in physical therapy, including faculty positions at the University of Vermont and Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. Her initial career focus was in pediatric physical therapy, and in the mid-1990's her focus expanded to the study of complementary physical therapy approaches. This evolved to a committed study of acupuncture and culminated in a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and National Board Certification. Her current practice blends acupuncture and Chinese healing philosophy with an understanding of structure and function, from the western physical therapy perspective. This blend is then focused on activating each individual's capacity to heal and reclaim health and vitality.
