Allison Kramp, AP, DOM
Dr. Allison Kramp is a graduate of East West College of Natural Medicine, plus she has a Bachelor’s in Biology from Elon University. She is a national board certified (NCCAOM) Acupuncture Physician and an Oriental Medicine practitioner. She received her certifications in Point Injection Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy, and Functional Nutrition in Florida. She can also perform other healing modalities such as cupping, Gua Sha, E-Stim, facial acupuncture and injection, and Tui Na.
Her passions lie in the treatment of women’s health, pain management, digestive disorders, and mental/emotional disorders. Having endured and overcome illnesses herself, she couldn’t help wanting to share the treatments that benefited her and others alike with the world.
Allison has been specially trained in acupuncture in conjunction with herbal therapy, functional nutrition, and point injection therapy to bring all body systems into balance. Her passions took her to China (twice!) to partake in hospital internships to further understand the ancient and effective medicinal practice. She was raised in a household of both an ER doctor and a Doctor of Physical Therapy with respect to all facets of traditional and modern medicine. She began her working life as a CNA and senior companion in local nursing homes where she learned that dedicating time to communicate with others is imperative to understanding and creating wellness.
She has always had an eager, boundless spirit to comfort others who don’t feel their best, and a never-ending desire to research and find the right answers. Known by her peers to always have a big smile on her face, it was natural to find a home in the healing arts and to help treat patients that had nowhere else to turn. She believes healing begins and ends with a true desire for wellness and that every journey is different. Balance in all aspects of life and health is key! Outside our wellness clinic, Allison loves soaking up the sunshine at the beach, cooking, reading, socializing at her favorite local kava lounge, and playing fun board games including Dungeons and Dragons.
Alex Trebing, MSOM, DACM (c)
Alexander Trebing has studied both western medical science and holistic medicine of many varieties for the better part of this last decade. He spent more than five years learning a myriad of bodywork techniques while working alongside chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and psychologists. Working in this field, he studied health science and nursing in his undergraduate program in Connecticut before moving to Florida to begin his Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine.
During this time, Alex started working with a chiropractic neurologist who provided him with the unique opportunity to become a trained Q-EEG neurofeedback technician which incorporated the study of the neuroscience of brain-mapping. After graduating the MSOM program at East West College of Natural Medicine, he took a summer externship in China to travel around the country working in different clinics and hospitals treating Palsy, stroke victims, and other neurological conditions. Upon his return to the United States he began his doctorate in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. This doctorate centers around the integration of Western and Eastern medicine, which is a fitting focus for Alex’s passion and fascination for integrating the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine with the cutting-edge science of modern neurology.
Alex has boundless levels of energy and a commitment to helping the world and his patients by integrating eastern and western styles of medicine to provide the optimal results. He works to serve his community, his field of medicine, and the medical community at large. Outside of working at our wellness clinic, Alex is a musician who plays guitar, drums, piano, ukulele, and violin. He is also a lover of all animals and enjoys being out in nature whenever possible.
