Cherie Torrence, MSAc, LAc, DipAc
Cherie was a Certified Pharmacy Technician with CVS for 4 years before and during her matriculation in medical school. From a medical condition (PCOS) that was diagnosed in her teen years, she saw that the combination of Natural Medicine and Acupuncture helped resolve her cysts on her ovaries. She knew that these "Alternative" were working because there were no cysts that showed up on the ultrasound. While in medical school she wrote and published an educational cookbook, Healthy Never Tasted So Good.
She graduated from Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine (PIHMA), with a Masters degree in Acupuncture. After becoming a Board Certified and Licensed Acupuncturist, she embarked on her dream to be an Acupuncturist on a cruise ship. After her contract on the high seas ended, she began her private practice in Charlotte, NC. Her thorough knowledge of western medications and side effects combined with her background in eastern medicine gives Cherie a strong foundation for providing integrative care.
