About Me
Teressa Canosa acupuncturist_edited_edited.png

Welcome! My name is Teressa Canosa, and I'm a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner.  My passion for wellness and traditional healing techniques imbues all that I do, and my goal is to help  clients experience maximum wellness - physically, mentally and emotionally.


Together, we'll decipher your body's messages to restore health and harmony. 

 My journey into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) started when I was 18. I had been dealing with chronic urinary tract infections (oh, the joy!) and round after round of antibiotics. Though I was reluctant to try out acupuncture at first - i.e. terrified of needles - a family member eventually convinced me to book a treatment. I was shocked to discover that it was totally different than what I had imagined. It was gentle and extremely relaxing, and most importantly, it really worked. 


After just a couple of months of treatment,  the issues I had been battling with for years were resolved. I was intrigued. As time went on, and as I saw more proof that TCM worked – for example, with my stepmom, who was able to avoid shoulder surgery after 3 months of acupuncture –  I became more and more interested in Chinese medicine. Ten years after that first treatment, while living in Madrid, I took the leap and enrolled in acupuncture school. ​The rest, as they say, is history. I went on to open an acupuncture clinic in Lecce, Italy, where I still practice today. 

While completing my four-year degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I interned at the Kunming Municipal Hospital of TCM in China, as well as private and public clinics in Boston, Miami and Madrid. I've been in practice since graduating in 2018, and my current licenses and certifications include the following:


  • Licensure in Acupuncture by Zhong, The Dutch Association for Traditional Chinese Medicine (since January 2023).

  • Master's Degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, dual certification by the Escuela Superior de Medicina Tradicional China in collaboration with the European Foundation for TCM and the Universities of Beijing and Yunnan, and the Universidad del Atlántico, (Madrid, Spain: 240 ECTS, 6,000 study hours).

  • Cosmetic Level I & Advanced Cosmetic and Facial Acupuncture Level II Certification by ICZO, the Institute for Complementary Healthcare Training (Antwerp, Belgium). 

  • Certified Dien Chan Zone Facial Reflexology Practitioner, International Academy of Italian Facial Reflexology (A.I.R.F.I. Milan). 

  • Certified in Foundations of Western Medicine by Shenzhou Open University, (Amsterdam, The Netherlands: 42,5 ECTS, 1122 study hours). 

  • Adult First Aid/CPR/AED Certified, The Hague, The Netherlands. 

  • Diploma in the Dr. Tan Balance Method, Core Foundations by Dr. Richard Tan, Madrid, Spain. 

  • Level 2 Reiki practitioner, Massachusetts, USA. 

  • Languages: English, Spanish, Italian.  


I’m on a mission to share Chinese Medicine with the world and to empower people to take their health into their own hands. Our bodies are so much more powerful than we realize! Sometimes, a little "help" - adjusting our lifestyle with acupuncture, dietary changes and exercise - is all that's needed for our bodies to heal. 

 I'm here for you every step of the journey, and look forward to you becoming your happiest, healthiest self.
