Abbe Creaney, M.Ac., L.Ac. 
My Name is Abbe Creaney and I am a licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Maryland, an acupuncture patient, and a mother of 5.  In 2008, I graduated from The Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute) with a Masters in Acupuncture and opened my private practice, Sweet Air Acupuncture, LLC.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have made such a difference to me and my family over the years.  When my oldest daughter, now 17, was 16 months old, we moved to China to teach English. While we were there, she became very sick and was treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs with such amazing success; that is when my interest was piqued!  Our time in China was life changing and I have been studying this system of medicine ever since.  While my family grew and my practice evolved, I continued to deepen my studies and I am beyond excited to be adding Chinese Herbal medicine to my practice very soon!  This natural medicine allows me to bring such an incredible gift of healing to people.  I couldn't be more excited to be joining Satori Wellness Center and I can't wait to see you!
