Christine Ruffing is a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of SC and is nationally certified by the NCCAOM. She is the owner of Infinity Acupuncture and Sports Medicine. Christine earned her undergraduate diploma at The Ohio State University and her graduate diploma at Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in North Carolina. The graduate coursework included over 2100 hours of training, including a year of practicing internship. After passing 3 national competency board exams, Christine was granted the title of Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dipl.Ac.) at a national level. Christine has also studied tui na extensively with internationally known instructors, Tom Bisio and Frank Butler, in New York City. She practices here in Charleston at two locations, one in North Charleston and the other on James Island.
Christine’s approach is to give each individual a customized treatment. Treatments are incrementally adjusted at each subsequent appointment to reflect the changes within your progress. She takes into consideration every one of your ailments, not restricted to one part of your body or one diagnosis. Your comfort, both physically and mentally while under Christine’s care, is essential. You are listened to, and your questions are answered. Finally, private sessions ensure your emotional comfort, allowing you to provide Christine with the details that she needs to design a thorough treatment plan for you. We have yet to see the “standardized patient” and you won’t be treated like one.
Christine has two wonderful children, a sweet rescued Newfoundland dog and 2 rescued cats. When she has time, she relaxes by spending time with friends, talking energetic theory and continuing the learning process with colleagues, and of course, at the beach or enjoying all that Charleston has to offer.
