Brittany S. Sm​ith, MAOM, Lic. Ac.

Brittany is a lifelong resident of the North Shore and is thrilled to bring her practice back to her community! Brittany is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) in Worcester, MA with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine and board certified by the National Commission for Certification in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Her training includes Chinese and Japanese Style Acupuncture, Orthopedic Acupuncture, and Chinese Herbal Medicine.


Previously, Brittany worked as EMT on the North Shore which ultimately led her to pursuing alternative medicine. She recognized the need for more integrative health care and had a desire to treat individual conditions holistically and naturally. With acupuncture and herbal medicine, she wants to treat the root cause of the illness as opposed to treating the symptoms.


Brittany received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Science with minors in biology, chemistry, and honors at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. While at Sacred Heart, she was a division 1 student-athlete playing for the Women’s Ice Hockey team. She has always loved sports and can’t wait to help athletes with their mental and physical health. In her spare time, Brittany can be caught skiing, golfing, boating, or hanging on the beach with her friends and family.
