Master of Science in Acupuncture
Diplomat in Acupuncture
Certified Splankna Practitioner
Laura Puckett was introduced to acupuncture at a young age through her twin sister who was treated by an acupuncturist. Her sister had many medical problems that western medicine could not solve. The acupuncture healed her. Her sister’s recovery prompted Laura to have a serious interest in Chinese Medicine. At the age of 14, Laura decided to make Chinese Medicine her career.
Laura attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and finished her undergraduate degree in Professional Studies and her Master’s of Science in Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York. In September 2010, Laura traveled to Guyana, South America on a mission trip. She treated many patients in an orphanage, on boats, and on the beach using acupuncture to help the people with pain, sexual trauma, and emotional distress.
The National Certification Committee of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) certified Laura with her Diplomate in Acupuncture. She is a licensed acupuncturist in North Carolina and is certified in Clean Needle Technique. She is also a Certified Splankna Practitioner.
After finishing her degree, Laura continued her education under senior acupuncturists at Hipple Acupuncture from February 2010 to December 2012. Laura treats patients using Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Elements, Japanese Meridian Therapy, Dr. Tan method, and Facial Rejuvenation.
Laura Puckett opened Lotus Acupuncture in January of 2013.
