Tina Nicastro, MAOM, L.Ac. is a licensed acupuncturist and board certified herbalist specializing in holistic endocrinology and reproductive medicine.
She earned her master’s degree from New England School of Acupuncture in 2014, and she’s since immersed herself in post-grad studies for herbal medicine, advanced acupuncture techniques, and women’s health.
- six consecutive years in the Graduate Mentorship Program with renowned women’s health herbalist, Sharon Weizenbaum
- advanced studies in distal acupuncture with Si Yuan Balance Method, the long-time mentees of the late master acupuncturist, Dr. Richard Tan
- and ongoing mentorship in Five Element Functional Medicine, a trailblazing treatment method synergizing the wisdom of Chinese medicine with modern nutritional supplementation and mind-body healing techniques.
Tina is currently working towards specialized certifications in fertility and holistic endocrinology, and is preparing to sit for the ABORM fellowship exam: American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine is the national gold standard for reproductive acupuncture + its integration with modern biomedical approaches.
Within the next few years, she also plans to complete her doctoral studies at PCOM (Pacific College of Oriental Medicine).
Tina’s always been a nurturer, a mother hen, a teacher. She earned her undergraduate + first graduate degree in theater/dance and secondary English education, which led to her first career as a high school English teacher and drama director. Her deepest fulfillment as a teacher was supporting young people as they explored and expressed who they were and how they envisioned their lives.
During this time, however, Tina suffered massive burnout. She’d achieved quite a bit outwardly, but her physical and mental health plummeted. It was a wake-up call which led her to embark on a healing journey. Along the way, she developed a deep appreciation for natural medicine, nutrition, and self-cultivation practices.
Tina eventually left her teaching career in search of a more fully aligned life. She returned to the New Hampshire seacoast, a place she fell in love with during her college years, and “by chance” landed an office manager job in an acupuncture practice. Every day at work, she’d witness patients’ amazing results and hear their stories: “I tried everything. Nothing worked. Until I found acupuncture.”
It was this experience that helped Tina see her future was in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. And while at NESA, she discovered her passion for all things women’s health.
Tina’s mission is to help women live pain free, in flow, and in alignment with their natural cycles. She believes our bodies are infinitely wise and carry within them the power to heal. Whether a woman is trying to start a family or is transitioning into menopause, vibrant feminine wellbeing and balanced hormones provide the foundation for a fully expressed life.
Tina is a proud bonus-mom to two magnificent teenagers, a mother to two young boys, and dog-mom to her 14-year-old mutt, Sid. She’s happily married to her best friend. They share a full and happy life, spending time as often as they can with family and friends.
