The Center for Integrative Medicine is moving from its location on Dutchmans Lane to 522 Cynwood Drive, Suite 300 in Easton. The move will take place this Monday, August 24.
Says Monika Armbruster, L.AC, M.Ac., acupuncturist who also provides administrative services for the Center. “With three acupuncturists, a massage therapist and a psychotherapist, we serve a variety of clients who come from a wide area, and we are hoping they will appreciate our new accommodations.”
CIM’s Cynwood Drive location was formerly occupied by the offices of Walid Kamsheh, MD, neurology and sleep medicine. Dr. Kamsheh is now located in UM Shore Medical Pavilion at Easton on Cadmus Lane.
According to Armbruster, another newsworthy change regarding the CIM services is that thanks to changes in UM Shore Regional Health employees’ insurance coverage, the copay for acupuncture has dropped from $40 to $15.
“This represents a 63 percent reduction in the out-of-pocket cost for an acupuncture treatment for our employees,” Armbruster points out. “For Shore Regional employees who benefit from acupuncture, this is a huge savings, and for those who would like to try acupuncture, the cost barrier is now greatly reduced.”
UM Shore Regional Health employees also now can avail themselves of psychotherapy services with only a $15 copay. Psychotherapy is provided by clinical therapist Pam Schulte, MSW, LCSW-C, whose experience includes outpatient clinical treatment to children, families and adults, and consultation and training to community agencies as well as the Circuit Court Systems on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Schulte also has provided counseling at the Dorchester County Health Departments Wellness Program and served four years as an adjunct professor in Salisbury University’s Department of Social Work. Her previous work experience includes several positions involving child welfare education program development; advocacy program leadership; clinical assessment, training, supervision, consultation and training in a variety of settings; and serving as an expert witness in court cases.
Other CIM practitioners are:
Silvia Byerly, AC., M.Ac, Acupuncturist
Marie Nuthall, AC., MA.c., Acupuncturist
Stephanie Blades, RN, LMT, CEIM, Massage Therapist
