L. Cindy Theroux-Jette, PhD, OT/L, LAc, CHPCA is a dually Board certified and licensed clinician with over 30 years of practice and she employs a functional integrative approach in addressing the underlying cause of disorders while treating adult and pediatric patients. She is a nationally Board-Certified and licensed Occupational Therapist (OT/L), and a nationally Board-Certified licensed Acupuncturist and herbalist (LAc). She is licensed to practice in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, became Board Certified in Occupational Therapy in 1992 by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), and was Board Certified in 2002 by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Her formal education includes a Doctoral degree in Health Psychology (PhD), a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM), a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy (BSOT), and additional training with the Institute for Functional Medicine and Functional Medicine University.
The comprehensive nature of her conventional medical training and holistic medical training serves to “fill the gap” and augment the care of conventional medical providers who may not have time or training to offer individualized care while working within the constraints of insurance based conventional care systems. She welcomes collaboration with all providers on the patient care team, as open communication facilitates better outcomes and is in the best interest of her patients.
Telemedicine allows Dr. Theroux-Jette to offer functional integrative medicine services to patients from all over the United States. Her practice focus includes treatment of chronic health conditions, preventive medicine, restorative medicine, healthy aging, and immunological, gastrointestinal and neurological disorders.
Complex conditions, chronic health conditions, pain, and psychological stress are the most common referrals and complaints she sees in her practice. Dr. Theroux-Jette empowers her adult patients to take an active role in addressing modifiable problem areas and expects active investment in treatment for best results in restoring and maintaining health.
