Erin E. Mitchell, L.Ac., M.Ac., M.S.O.M.
Erin E. Mitchell is the co-Founder of BlueGreen Acupuncture & Bodywork and is a licensed practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She holds two Masters degrees, one in Acupuncture and one in Oriental Medicine from Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute), the first accredited Acupuncture school in the U.S. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Villanova University, where she majored in History and Women’s Studies with a Minor in Spanish and focus on African studies. After spending 6 years in Manhattan working in private investments for some of the most acclaimed firms in the industry, she moved to Baltimore to try her hand in something just a little different. Admittingly skeptical at first, she was drawn into the field of Chinese Medicine after seeing profound results acupuncture had on people and animals. More importantly, it was a way of serving people that didn’t require the costly and often damaging side-effects of pharmaceuticals to people and planet.
In 2009, Erin proudly led and co-organized Project for Peace, an initiative to teach elementary age students conflict resolution skills, meditation, yoga, Qi Gong and awareness practices to improve mood, focus, stress management and listening skills. She volunteered over 1000 hours for a community service project as Program Director for Baltimore Bioneers in 2008, a national organization whose mission is the advancement of holistic education pertaining to global, social, cultural and environmental solutions. She taught yoga for over 4 years after earning her RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher Training, 200 Hours) in 2004.
Her deep connection to natural therapies of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine continues to grow as the nation becomes ever more dependent on pills to solve its problems. She is committed to empowering her patients to be confident and skilled in self-care as one of the most powerful tools she offers in the treatment room. On a broader scale, she believes that health of people and planet are interdependent.
