“Having practiced massage prior to acupuncture, I am well trained in kinesiology; the study of bone, muscle, tendon and ligament. I add this structural knowledge to the art of acupuncture and it allows me to help people resolve the root cause of their structural pain.”
Catherine Cusumano, M.S., L.Ac brings over 20 years of experience in health and human services to Pellegrino Healing Center. Catherine is what could be referred to as a well-balanced alternative medicine practitioner. Her past includes practicing reiki and massage for several years. After becoming an acupuncture patient herself, and experiencing the extraordinary healing effect and reversal of her symptoms, she decided to pursue a career in acupuncture. In 2004, Catherine received her Master of Science in acupuncture from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in NYC, studying Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Japanese and trigger point release style. Catherine also pursued her passion for nutrition. In 2011, she completed her nutrition certificate at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Having successfully treated depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues, respiratory imbalances, infertility, irregular menstruation, and more, Catherine feels the main focus of her practice is pain management. If you've had an accident, slip and fall or any kind of physical trauma, surgery pain and recovery symptoms, back, neck and leg pain, Catherine can help you.
