points for health acupuncture & herbal medicine

Denise Edmiston, L.Ac., LCSW, MAcOM, MSSW

Diplomate NCCAOM

I have had the great fortune to live in many parts of the U.S. and travel extensively throughout the world. I bring these life opportunities and experiences, plus the training and knowledge that I have obtained from my academic endeavors, the compassion that I have developed from working with those in need, and a profound trust in my intuition, to my practice of traditional Oriental medicine.

My interest has always been in providing help and support to those in need. As a result, I entered college to study psychology and received a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from California Sate University, Northridge. I then continued my education to study social work and received a Master's in Science and Social Work (MSSW) and advanced clinical practitioner recognition (LCSW).

I spent many years working at Children's Medical Center in Dallas providing support and counseling to children with heart conditions and their families. I later became the Program Director of Gilda's Club North Texas where I was fortunate to have the opportunity to design and implement an educational and support program for those living with a cancer diagnosis, as well as for their families and friends. It was at that time that I was introduced to acupuncture and Chinese medicine and was able to observe the amazing affects that it has in restoring one's physical, emotional and spiritual health through its creation of balance. Currently my passions lie in treating women's health issues and creatively working with general nutrition.

I completed my studies in Traditional Oriental Medicine, earning a Master's degree from the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin. I am happy to be part of the healthcare community in Coppell and look forward to providing quality, patient-centered care in a professional, caring environment.

I have been a long-time resident of Coppell where my husband and I have raised our two sons. Outside the clinic, I love the outdoors and am a life-long long-distance runner. I practice yoga and enjoy cooking and gardening, as well as spending time with family and friends.
