Erin Kumpf DACM, L.Ac, is a nationally board certified and state licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the states of New Jersey and New York. Erin specializes in Women's Health, Irregular and Painful Periods and Fertility.
Erin graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and has continued on to study endocrinology, reproductive health and is currently in the process of becoming ABORM certified: an elite group of practitioners that have demonstrated competency and advanced knowledge in the field of both Western and Oriental Reproductive Medicine by passing rigorous advanced certification and examination.
After suffering from irregular menstrual cycles for over 10 years that no doctor could seem to rectify, Erin was reluctant to proceed with the aggressive treatment plans being recommended to her. Frustrated that no one could identify the root cause of her woes, she had read how acupuncture and herbal medicine are remarkably adept at addressing women's reproductive health issues. After embarking on a holistic endeavor of regular acupuncture, herbs and diet adjustments, she quickly realized the beauty and elegance of this medicine. After 3 months of regular treatments, not only did she have a regular cycle, but felt more herself than she had in a long time.
Her own experience was so profound that she felt compelled to follow her heart and achieved a Doctorate in Chinese Medicine in order to help as many people as she can who are also frustrated with stubborn health issues. She has since specialized in treating the root causes to menstrual irregularities as well as associated issues such as weight gain.
Erin's mission is to help as many people as possible that have been told, "there is no hope" or "this is just how it is and there is nothing else we can do." Her approach and respect for each patient as a unique individual with unique ailments helps her to formulate treatment plans that are comprehensive yet unique to each patient.
Erin is an avid musician and spends her free time playing in two local bands with her husband, loving her small form of animals (just kidding, but she does have two cats and a dog that she adores), and voraciously reading medical journals on health, wellness and latest medical research. She is also on the board of trustees at her local county park where she helps in the park’s beautification project.
