I would imagine that most people who refuse to try acupuncture are skeptics; they simply believe it won’t work to help them with what ails. I am not most people. I shunned acupuncture for years because I was afraid it would work. My fear of needles stems all the way back to early childhood – sure, I will get my yearly flu vaccine and whatnot but it is so terrifying to me that I manage to work myself into a panic attack before I ever even reach the clinic. And so acupuncture was entirely not on my radar – intentionally putting needles in my body – no thank you. Even more paralyzing to me, what if it worked. What if putting those horrible little needles in helped me? I am embarrassed now to admit that it took over 10 years of living in pain to even consider acupuncture. There were 3 things I noticed in my foray into acupuncture 1. It doesn’t “hurt” – there are definitive sensations with the entry points, but some places I assumed would be so painful (hello, forehead?!) I truly didn’t feel. Other places that I assumed would not hurt at all (like the fleshy side of my thumb) it was tender. The needle itself wasn’t the issue, the energy from that area though, definitely made itself known. I think that was the moment I realized that this would open my mind to the very real theory that the energy in my body was out of balance. 2. It works! It is funny how when you fears wind up being correct you are forced to reevaluate your fears. I was afraid it would work and I would be forced to endure this pain. Except, it wasn’t painful. So, enter the humble pie. I spent 4 consecutive days on the table having acupuncture done. People have asked if I experienced euphoria when I had it done. No, I experienced an awareness of my body. A sense of energy and movement. And by the end of day 4, the pain that had plagued me for a decade was released. BUT, I was on vacation – maybe it was just coincidence? Maybe I would have been relaxed no matter what. And maybe that is true, which is why I waited to write my thoughts down. I am a week removed from my last session. A very stressful week where I seem to be tested from all sides if my new-found calm would last. And it did. My back didn’t seize up in micro-knots like it usually did at the first sign of stress. Sure, I held tension in my shoulders as I was stressed but it released like it is supposed to after a hot shower and some time to quiet my mind. 3. You have to like and trust your provider. There needs to be a dialogue – about your fears, your expectations and their thoughts on how to accomplish your goals. If you don’t have faith in your provider, I suspect that it will be stilted and possibly painful. They need to have an open conversation with you about what is going on in your body. Which brings me to…. Dr. Antonika – Dr. Anontika is everything I wish every doctor was – kind, open, optimistic and most of all, listened without any prejudice. She let me explain my fears, my concerns, and my ailments. She asked questions when she needed more information but never jumped to the “I can fix you” solution that I have encountered in so many people. In fact, her approach wasn’t that I needed “fixing” at all, but that all of the solutions were within me, I just needed help to refocus my body’s own energy. In her seminar, she mentioned that she could fix sea-sickness in just a few minutes. When I saw her for my first session I mentioned that I was having some mild sea-sickness, she wasn’t kidding – I felt better by the time our session was over and sea-sickness didn’t even enter my mind for the remainder of our cruise. But I didn’t seek Dr. Anontika out for sea-sickness, I had been plagued with back/shoulder pain for years (over 10!) that would, at times, be debilitating enough to wake me from my sleep and keep me awake and in pain all night. I also mentioned that the pain wasn’t the only middle of the night problem, often times, the pain would wake me and it would be followed by anxiety attacks. I had seen countless doctors and physical therapists through the years and all had the same answers – take anti-depressants for the anxiety and panic, stronger muscle relaxers for my back, change my sleep patterns, nothing to get to the root cause of what was causing the issue. By the end of my sessions with Dr. Anontika, I am delighted to say that the back pain is gone. I am sleeping soundly (!) through the night, goodbye panic attacks, goodbye back pain. I waited over a month after getting home to write this up as the thought occurred to me that maybe I was simply relaxed after a vacation. But there have been no recurrences of pain or panic. As amazed as I was at Dr. Anontika’s results, who she was as a person was the thing I connected with. As I lay on the table, we talked – we discussed stress, work, family, how to bring balance and how to bring joy. I felt like I was talking with a longtime friend. In fact, the most telling moment for me was after my last session. In addition to being sad that I would no longer have daily acupuncture sessions – I hugged Dr. Antonika like I was embracing an old friend who I wouldn’t see again for awhile. Now, why is this odd? I don’t like to hug people. Aside from my kids and my husband, a hearty handshake is about the most I am willing to part with and in most cases it is a smile and a wave but for Dr. Anontika, I asked if I could give her a hug. She brings out the best of people with her manner, her light, her optimism and her skill – I can only hope that we cross paths again.
Antonika helped me by setting me up with a weight lose program that enhanced my mind, body and spirit. I highly recommend her holistic approach to healing.

About me

I have over 20 years of experience in the health industry. I am an educator, public speaker, and author. I started experiencing health concerns that were beyond my financial means. That’s when I decided to take control of my health. I went on a mission and began to learn about Chinese medicine, and it's a complete system of health care that surpasses many health trends today. My focus is herbology, food therapy, emotional support through lifestyle medicine.

Over the years, I have used my knowledge to help thousands of people worldwide embark on their own journeys to achieve optimal health. Throughout this process, I have created a proven system that anyone can follow to achieve optimal health and unleash their human potential.

My Philosophy of Care

At a very young age, I was an athlete, and I later began training for fitness competitions. My mother was also a fitness competitor and always on the cutting edge of wellness.

My career in the USCG conditioned me to become a leader in my passion. I was inspired to become a wellness professional when I discovered how to replace the medication for a lifestyle that gave me my life back.

After getting past my own health challenges, I found comfort in showing others how to achieve theirs when I became a physician.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients feel like they are talking to someone who listens, knows them, and understands their struggles. They have trust and confidence in themselves by the time our session is over. They feel like they have found the physician they have been looking and asking for.

My Inspiration

East Asian Medicine is a complete medical system that looks at your body as a whole.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. You never know what is waiting for you if you don't apply yourself to something different, decide to invest in your health, and commit to you a better version of yourself.

What a true Godsend Antonika has been in such a short amount of time. She’s been my Herbal wellness coach for a month now, and I am truly grateful for all she’s poured into me and my healing. I came to her expressing my menstrual discomfort and heavy periods due to having a fibroid. In less than a month I’ve seen amazing results and my fibroid has shrunk a bit. I love how Antonika is always there, ready to help, educate and advise. It’s been an amazing journey thusfar and I truly look forward to the months ahead working with her.
I met Antonika when I was in severe pain from a nerve injury. I was overweight and a type II diabetic. She did 5 acupuncture sessions with me and my pain was reduced by 50%. Antonika then coached me through a successful weight loss program and I have lost over 75 lbs. and no longer diabetic. She saved my life !

I highly recommend Antonika she has helped me to bring my A1C from 13 to 7 in 3months and I feel great . She is an amazing person and has so much knowledge finding the root cause to help you achieve your optimal health goals bring.
Antonika is living her purpose. I felt at ease when she came into the room. Her compassion was clear. Her knowledge is immediately apparent. She was able to help me with long term pain that I now no longer have. She lives her Calling. Thank you Antonika for taking good care of me. Clay Harper Master Horseman
Antonika came into my life when I was at a serious low regarding my health. I had seen several different western medical doctors for the last year and nothing was helping. Antonika listened, she understood my challenges, went over and above to help me and guide me on how to begin true healing-not just in the body but in the mind and spirit as well. She provides so much information and so many resources. She keeps digging to identify and explain exactly what you need whether it be certain foods, herbs, acupuncture, etc. I have hope again and even though I’m not where I want to be yet I no longer feel like I’m doing this alone and that makes a ton of difference. I know that I am on the journey of true healing now. I can’t recommend her enough.
Antonika is a passionate woman with a heart of gold and a mind for natural medicine. Over the years she has helped me with many things from back pain to acid reflux and always with a caring touch. If you have an open mind and take the time to listen she will definitely teach you and help you live a better healthier life.
Antonika is an absolute miracle worker. She treated me during an extremely stressful time for PTSD. Without her help I do not know how I would have coped with life at the time. A true healer and always strives to find the best course of treatment for her patients. As someone who has worked in holistic healthcare for just over 20 years now I can highly recommend Antonika to anyone who wants to improve their health- physical and emotional wellbeing.
Antonika is very approachable and knowledgeable. Her coaching is amazing. She really knows how to motivate me to become the best version of myself. I have recieved treatment from her and continued with herbs and essential oils throughout her program. Both made a significant difference in my life. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a holistic solution to health care.
The healing process starts the moment her infectious bright energy enters the room. She has a great passion for helping people. I saw immediate results after our first accupuncture session.
Antonika is a great practitioner. She’s intuitive & skilled at her craft. She taught me a lot about essential oils. I have known Antonika ever since she started private practice . She is honest , reliable and very professional.
Antonika has a very gentle touch, she helped me get past motion sickness in a day. She really knows her herbal formulas and she goes the extra mile. Her coaching practice is amazing. She coached me thought a tough time in my career and helped me get past my my own anxieties and insecurities. I highly recommend her and the services she offers.
I did my first accupunture with Antonika. She is so knowledgeable about health, movement, wellness and nutrition.. and overall such a great person. She make you feel super comfortable to express your concerns.
Apart from being a brilliant professional in the field of acupuncture and Eastern medicine, Antonika is above all a gentle and caring person who is a pleasure to work with. Her qualities in predisposing the client to trust her competence are really impressive. For me, Antonika is an example of what people who care about the health and well-being of other people should be like. One can learn a lot about the beauty of relationships between patient and doctor, not only on a verbal level, but above all on a non-verbal level - simply by participating in her soul-quiet presence, wich is as if out of this world - so ethereally and sensually. I am thankful our paths crossed. She is one of my favorite people to share time with. She is a rare treasure wise people needs.
Being first introduced to Antonika in 2015, I’ve learned many things from her as a personal coach, health coach and a master of essential oils. Her expertise in acupuncture and Chinese medicine has paved a way for me to have an active role in my health. Her dedication to the practice is passionate and inviting, which excites me to want a better lifestyle for myself and my family. Her encouragement of food being our medicine has prompted me to take care of myself. Acupuncture, massage therapy, essential oils and meditation has changed my course to a much happier healthier life.
Antonika is one of the most passionate, accurate and knewledge person that i have the chance to meet in the accupuncture and holistic medicine in general. She’s truly genuine with all of her patients, and she is ready to relieve any kind of pain (physical or emotional) you can have. Highly recomended.
Antonika is a amazing in her field, she is extremely caring,patient and willing to help at all times,she goes above and beyond in her profession and alway makes all her patients feel amazing after treatment.She maintains a positive smile at all times and is very professional.
Antonika peeked my interest in essential oils with her insightful and healing knowledge. She knows her oils! Thank you Antonika for this wonderful and healing relationship.
I have had the privilege of seeing Antonika at work and how she has changed so many lives,she truly cares and is passionate about healing,would highly recommend
