Dr. Lori Zerbe is a nationally board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist through the NCCAOM and is
licensed to practice by the state of Illinois. She completed both a Master of Science and Doctorate of
Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science in Chicago, where her training included extensive coursework in acupuncture, herbology, biomedicine and over 900 hours of clinical training. She is also a certified yoga teacher (RYT200) and is currently deepening her herbal knowledge through an additional two-year graduate mentorship program. Prior to finding this medicine, Lori spent years in the corporate world as a market research consultant.
Her time as a yoga teacher ignited her desire to help others. Lori was drawn to East Asian medicine
because of its focus on the mind-body connection as well as the medicine’s tailored approach that
focuses not just on the symptom itself, but the root cause unique to each person. Lori strives to help
her patients see life through a different lens, and to find a sense of calm within the demands of life.
By creating customized treatment plans that include acupuncture and its related modalities (such as
cupping and moxibustion therapy), prescribing Chinese herbal medicine and suggesting lifestyle
recommendations, she aims to deliver compassionate care that empowers her patients to take an active role in their own healing journey, meeting them wherever they are and ensuring they feel heard.
Lori treats a variety of disorders, including but not limited to pain, digestive issues, sleep disorders and headaches/migraines. Specifically, she is passionate about treating women’s health and menstrual dysfunction, as well as helping patients navigate the impact of mental health strains within their own bodies. She has a particular interest in treating the emotional and physical manifestations of the non-linear layers of grief.
