She strives to empower patients to take an active role in their healing through patient education.
As a Latina and first generation college graduate, I pursued premedical studies. When I decided to not pursue medical school, I moved to Chicago and ended up instead pursuing clinical massage therapy and working in integrative healing clinics that opened up my world to acupuncture. I’ve never looked back and am so incredibly humbled and amazed by the power of Chinese Medicine-especially when combined with other modalities for a holistic health approach.
As we are extensions of nature itself, finding ways to connect with nature and live in accordance to the seasonal changes around us, we can learn to adapt and flow with these changes for a more balanced lifestyle and health.
Dr. Perez is originally a Texas native, but has lived in Chicago for 10 years now. In her spare time she enjoys catching live music with her partner, lounging at the lake, doing Pilates, hosting acupuncture workshops, and cuddling her hound dog.
