Vanessa Rutkowski, Acupuncturist

Released Monday, 16th March 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Vanessa Rutkowski is a licensed acupuncturist and applied clinical nutritionist who has been practicing in Austin for about 18 years alongside her husband, Douglas Rutkowski. Together, they own Tigerlily Wellness and Acupuncture off S. Lamar.  We spent most of our time talking about various modalities of Chinese and alternative medicine including acupuncture, cupping, and muscle testing. Whether you’re an acupuncture devotee like myself or a total skeptic, I think you’ll find something interesting in this conversation.  **Note that this episode was recorded in mid-February 2020, before Covid-19 became an immediate concern for most of us in the United States. We discuss general advice for wellness during cold and flu season, but this advice does not necessarily prevent or treat Covid-19. The content in this episode is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
