Dr. Leah Collins, DOM
Leah has been working in the field of natural healing for over 17 years. In 2000, after receiving a double BA in Psychology and Spanish from the University of New Mexico, she followed her intuition and attended the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in Albuquerque to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. Over the years, the philosophies of Asian medicine and acupuncture had fascinated her, and so in 2008 she enrolled at Southwest Acupuncture College. As part of her training in acupuncture, Leah completed a 6-week intensive externship, working at a traditional acupuncture hospital in Hanoi, Vietnam. Dr. Collins is a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine in New Mexico and is nationally certified by the NCCAOM as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine.
Dr. Collins finds it most rewarding to work with people who are actively transforming their lives toward a higher level of health and consciousness. During times of transition, the body requires extra attention, and acupuncture can work on a very deep level to create energetic shifts in the body that lead to positive changes in health. She has extensive experience working with people in recovery from trauma and/or addiction and is a member of the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. She specializes in empowering individuals to let go of what is no longer serving them by gently and respectfully working to bring focus and clarity into each treatment. Her training in massage school was strongly energy based and is the foundation of all the work she has practiced since; her treatments integrate hands-on energywork, massage and acupuncture techniques. Whatever the modality she uses, her approach remains the same: to create a safe space and provide support for the body to heal itself by honoring each individual's unique healing process.
