Catherine Zwergel, L.Ac.

Catherine’s interest in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) was sparked when she was very young. Her mother began a personal path to wellness in her fight with cancer via alternative therapies. Catherine felt her mother’s relief and witnessed how healthy and full of energy she was even while her health was under attack. Her father sought treatment for back pain during a heart condition with acupuncture. This positive influence grew over time, and Catherine eventually began her studies in TCM.

After graduating from the acupuncture program at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, Catherine continued her studies in Chinese herbal medicine and nutrition. In addition to acupuncture, she also incorporates Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT), as well as the TCM modalities of tui na, cupping, gua sha and moxibustion.

Not only has Catherine exceeded the clinical internship requirements for acupuncture licensure in Illinois, she additionally completed a 4 year internship with Claudette Baker, L.Ac., a senior acupuncturist with over 25 years’ experience. 

Catherine is currently seeing patients at Lighthouse Yoga & Acupuncture Saturday and Monday–Wednesday. To schedule an appointment, please contact her here:
