“It is my intention as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine to help remind my patients of the power within them to heal and evolve towards an even more vibrant, embodied life by offering tools to cultivate vitality.”
Nemesia Sorcar is an NCCAOM Diplomate and is Licensed both nationally and in the state of North Carolina to practice Acupuncture and Herbalism. Nemesia attended Daoist Traditions College of Chinese medical Arts in Asheville, NC where she learned a unique Classical style of Chinese Medicine which is based upon the Classical texts of ancient China and has continued to evolve over the past 2000 years. During this 4-year master’s degree program in Oriental medicine, Nemesia studied under Jeffery Yuen, an 88th Generation Daoist Priest who has helped to preserve the essence of Classical Chinese Medicine through his translations and teaching of these ancient texts. Within her training, she has learned to utilize plant medicine, stone medicine, essential oils, food therapy, and self-cultivational tools alongside Acupuncture and body work to provide an array of tools to share with others in their individual healing journey.
Nemesia carries a bachelor’s degree in Wellness and Alternative Medicine which she received from Johnson State College. During this 4-year program, she was introduced to Western herbalism, nutrition, massage therapy, Ayurvedic medicine, and Reiki alongside a biomedical foundation. Her studies of holistic health began with her practice of Yoga and meditation in her early 20’s. She spent 4 months living as a volunteer at Kripalu Yoga Center in Stockbridge, MA where she was able to explore the health benefits of Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine, and Meditation during this immersive internship. Learning Eastern Medicine has taught her many techniques that she loves to share with her clients that can be helpful to calm the mind and relax the body. She like to utilize and teach these techniques to help her patients connect more deeply with themselves. Nemesia believes that integrating relaxation techniques such as Yoga, Qi Gong, breathwork, visualization and meditation techniques can help to empower her patients by giving them tools to adapt to stress and to help build vitality. It is part of Nemesia’s philosophy to cultivate nourishment in her life, and remind others to do the same; she believes that food is medicine and loves to teach people about how they can nourish themselves with different types of foods and useful kitchen remedies.
Nemesia specializes in treating various pain syndromes and has had experience working with veterans as well as the elderly population treating ailments that come along with aging. She incorporates bodywork into all of her treatments to help her clients feel more centered and nurtured during their treatments. Her approach is holistic in that she seeks to give people tools that they can practice at home so that they can take charge of their health and feel empowered during their healing journey. Nemesia believes that, “We are all capable of healing ourselves, and it is my goal to remind people of their own power to transform. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have the ability to change our perception and in turn change how we relate to the challenges in our everyday life whether they present as physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Changing our perception changes our reality and therefore gives us a new outlook on our life.” Nemesia also loves to treat clients who are going through major life transitions and seeks to utilize Acupuncture as a way of re-integrating parts of our self that have been disconnected with trauma. She uses Acupuncture as a means of clearing out blockages so that her clients may have a more cohesive inner world. She believes that as our body is allowed greater communication within itself by freeing up stagnant habituations, we are led back to our true nature, uninhibited by fear, and pulsating with life!
