Teri Applegate, MAcOM, Dipl Ac., L.Ac., realized a long held desire to be an Acupuncturist on a fully integrative medical team when she joined Casey Health Institute. Happily, she found that the philosophies she had embodied in private practice for over 12 years were aligned with Casey Health’s patient-centered approach to wellness.
Teri comes to Casey Health from Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Cancer Treatment Centers of America where she provided acupuncture treatments to relieve patients’ cancer treatment-related side effects.
Ms. Applegate earned a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, and completed a post-graduate internship in acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine (NJUCM) International Education College (China).
In addition, she is a board certificated Diplomat of Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and continues her membership as a specialist in the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. Teri is licensed with the State of Maryland and is a member of the Maryland Acupuncture Society.
She earned certification as a Qigong instructor through the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and was named lineage holder by her mentor Professor Chen, Huixian in 2001. Her knowledge of Qigong is backed by intensive study with masters in China, during trips from 2000 through 2007 including an independent study of Qigong at a rural hospital in Chongli, China.
Since 1999, Ms. Applegate has been a Qigong instructor for patients living with chronic illness and cancer through private workshops and programs she initiated at Providence hospitals in Portland. Previously, Teri taught in the Seattle area at Cancer Lifeline, Bastyr University, Providence Regional Medical Center, and numerous other facilities and institutions.
Outside of her work at Casey Health, Teri enjoys spending time with her daughter, a naturopathic physician, snorkeling, and walks on the beach in Hawaii.
