Portrait of a Practitioner
Angelica Kokkalis, offering acupuncture in the West Lafayette and Zionsville area, is one of a rare breed of clinicians with training and expertise in both Eastern and Western medicine. Born and raised in Greece, she received a Sino-Greek Government Student Exchange Scholarship to study medicine in China, where she combined her education in conventional medicine with training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.). The fruits of her nine years in Beijing are a profound understanding of the Oriental conception of health and illness along with a foundation in Western medicine, a fertile combination that allows her to bridge East and West in the care and compassion she provides her patients. For those who seek the wisdom and healing of ancient medicine in a modern era, Angelica Kokkalis offers that and more: the meeting and melding of East and West in a singular, compassionate individual.
“My goal is to relieve suffering by using the time-honored techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine to bring the body back into balance, thus facilitating its natural ability to heal itself. Equally important is my emphasis on patient education in the prevention of illness through proper diet, exercise, and stress management.” –Angelica Kokkalis, DOM, Lic. Ac.
