Blossoming Point Acupuncture was founded in 2014 by Frances Norris, L.Ac, MSTOM, Dipl. OM.. Frances is a licensed acupuncturist, board certified herbalist, and is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Her areas of special interest include women’s health, infertility, nutrition, and emotional well being.
Frances is a Chicago native whose passion for Chinese medicine was sparked by treatments and side effects she experienced while suffering from various health issues as a child and young adult. After years of recurring asthma and allergy issues, her parents began to seek more natural and holistic options including acupuncture. Using various methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Frances has been able to overcome her health issues. Through this journey, she grew passionate about the field of Chinese medicine and became determined to share this passion by investing in the training needed to heal others.
Frances received her Masters of Science from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. There she had extensive hands-on training in a rigorous four year program, in which she completed over 3500 hours of course and clinic work. Prior to completing her Masters, she earned a B. A. in Sociology from Roosevelt University. This combination of academic training and real life experience has given Frances a very unique perspective about Traditional Chinese Medicine and healthcare in general.
