Lane adds licensed acupuncturist _lowres

Aerin Couvillion

Lane Regional Medical Center has welcomed Aerin Couvillion, a licensed acupuncturist who recently founded Fleur de Lis Acupuncture in Zachary, to its medical team.

A native of Baton Rouge, Couvillion attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York where she received a master’s degree in oriental medicine; became a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine; is licensed in the state of New York; and certified by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners, according to a news release.

Her focus is on digestive disorders, sleep disorders and women’s health.

“One of the more unique qualities about oriental medicine is the ability to cater a series of acupuncture points or an herbal formula to a single individual. The advantage is in finding the underlying cause to a patient’s pain or discomfort and not merely dampening the symptoms,” said Couvillion. “This is the meaning of restoring balance to the body.”

For information, call Couvillion at (225) 658-6624.
