"I don't treat conditions ... I treat patients," ~Amy P.

Professional Consultation

You may be familiar with P4 Medicine concepts:

  •  Personalized
  •  Predictive
  •  Preventive
  •  Participatory

I view this journey as a partnership. My professional consultation services are available for new and established patients who wish to maximize their health & wellness outcomes.

Utilizing a triunal lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine superimposed with Conventional Medicine constructs and Cutting-edge Functional Medicine Analysis offers you an approach that is backed by years of experience, research, and clinical results.

BiaoHealth Acupuncture

Not every Functional Medicine clinician also has the opportunity to offer acupuncture services and treatments as well.

Although I love the sleuthing of Functional Medicine, I also love integrating a powerful & effective Acupuncture session for my patients who request this service.

California standards to practice acupuncture far exceed any other state’s requirements.

Botanicals & Supplements

Do you know the difference between:

You don't have to.

Amy will help you understand the proper forms, doses, and sources of supplements available on the market.

Please see my BLOG entries for this incredibly important subject.

After a careful assessment of your nutrition, let BiaoHealth assess your individual needs, integrating your history, preferences, and other data to find out what is the best strategy for you when it comes to supplementation and botanical medicine.

Amy Petrarca has studied individual herbs, traditional formulas, and modern research to help you benefit from these natural medicines safely and effectively.  Wildcrafted & Organic whenever possible, herbs are available in raw form, granules, extracts, and topical; custom formulated for individual needs. Amy Petrarca will help you understand the properties of herbs, and explain details about the herbs & formulas that she prescribes.

*BiaoHealth does not recommend taking botanical medicines or supplements without professional consultation.

Sound Therapy

Have you thought about trying acupuncture - but have fear of needles?

Non-needle modalities are an effective alternative to Acupuncture.  Now, even needle-phobic people can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine.  

The human body has been responding to waves since even before birth.  Light waves, sound waves, & vibrational waves can all have beneficial effects in our daily experiences.  In Modern Allopathic Medicine,  ultrasound, lithotripsy, and lasers are used therapeutically.  In Complementary Medicine, other forms of wave and vibrational therapy such as:

  • Microcurrent
  • Electro-Acupuncture
  • Tuning Forks

Are utilized in stress management, pain-management, and even fertility treatments.

Sound Therapy can be provided as its own modality, or combined with other BiaoHealth services. 

Some patients rave that Sound Therapy is even more effective than acupuncture for certain conditions.

Functional Medicine

Through a Functional Medicine approach, it is possible to determine what contributes to the root of your issues, and also how to gain leverage in solving the most intricate & complicated health problems.

Amy P. has formally studied Functional Medicine with The Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) since 2010.

Functional Medicine doesn't ask "what?"

Functional Medicine asks,"why?"

Together we can collect the data, and create the map of the terrain to put together all the pieces and really "see" what has contributed (and is contributing) to your current situation; AND, then strategize and implement a customized plan for you.

Coaching & Mentorship

"Amy’s guidance and coaching is something that I did not imagine!

I previously took a coaching program with a well known group in the health community. Having previous coaching experience from various coaches, I can say with complete confidence and respect that Amy’s coaching style does not compare.

Every time I have been coached, I am astonished at the detail and care she puts into each of our sessions.

Amy holds such respect for who she is mentoring and genuinely strives for your success.

The knowledge she has from facial acupuncture, functional medicine, business and practice challenges has truly benefited my confidence as both a practitioner and business owner. I often feel like I have a partner cheering me on and guiding me to overcome my fears, meet my goals and address business challenges!

Her mentorship in that is beyond priceless! Forever grateful for this mentorship and coaching, I highly recommend and would not hesitate in choosing Amy to be your coach."
