BRIANNA EARDLEY-PRYOR, L.Ac., Dipl.OM., M.Ac.OM. I’m an acupuncturist and practitioner of East Asian Medicine in Philadelphia, licensed by the California Acupuncture Board, License No. 18778, and board certified by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I completed my Master's degree in 2015 at the highly esteemed Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR.
Prior to my medical education, I spent more than a decade working for Planned Parenthood, where I developed a passion for educating folks to take charge of their reproductive health and fertility cycles. My specialty is treating patients at every stage of the reproductive years. I have experience treating a wide range of ailments including allergies, eczema, anxiety, migraines, auto-immune diseases, and all types of pain. I'm trained in Tuina massage, a type of East Asian body work that treats musculo-skeletal conditions.
I believe that to heal is to be made whole, as much as it is possible for each of us.
Healing happens in safe spaces. Nourish Acupuncture strives to be a safe and inclusive space. I warmly welcome persons of all races, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
Health is not just a state of the physical body. Our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical selves require our consistent attention and care.
Suffering is an unavoidable truth of existence. But we can experience joy and gratitude alongside pain and grief. I believe that it is through suffering that we are broken open, able to more deeply experience our own humanity and that of others. When we are open, we are poised to move toward change, growth, and healing.
Health and healing is a dynamic process. Wellness requires consistent practice. Sometimes we hit the target, and other times we miss it over and over. That’s okay, and that’s expected. The key is to keep returning to the practice.
Even with the clearest vision of your whole self, it can be difficult to become it—or even take the steps toward it—without trusted guides. From my perspective, my job as your practitioner is to help facilitate wellness, and to guide you toward your most whole self.
You have a vital role in your own healing. Ultimately, you decide whether you’re ready and committed to take the next steps toward wholeness.
~My vow as your practitioner is to truly listen and to recognize your unique story so that we can begin together, where you are in your own healing process.
MY EDUCATION I graduated from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with a Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. Louis University, where I earned my B.A. and studied International Studies, Communication, and Spanish.
