Bittersweet transition. Goodbye to Ana and hello to Melissa

Photo: We're about to experience a transition here at PCA as one skilled and compassionate acupuncturist leaves us and another joins us. We are so grateful to have gotten to work with Ana Calla for the last year and a half. This is her last week with us. I'm sure she'd love to hear your appreciations and farewells. We will post a goodbye message from Ana on our website early next week. Much love to Ana.

As many of you know, one of our practitioners, Ana Calla, worked 
her last day at PCA on Friday. 
The rest of us are so grateful to have 
been able to work with her for the last 
year and a half. Ana held such a warm and focused space for her patients and is a 
wonderful acupuncturist, speaking from experience.

Share appreciations or farewells on our facebook page if you’d like.

Ana says:

To all at PCA,
Working at PCA was a very enriching experience for me. Not only because I met wonderful people, but because it helped me to understand that a positive attitude is contagions and at the end it is all about caring for one another.
Hasta la vista amigos (so long my friends) with this a thought from Lao Tzu.
“If you are depressed,
you are living in the past.
If you are anxious,
you are living in the future.
If you are at peace,
you are living the present.”

And, last week, we posted this from our new acupuncturist, Melissa Tiernan.

Hello PCA community!

I’m so honored and thrilled to join the PCA team in serving the people of Rhode Island. Originally from Cranston, I left lil’ Rhody in 1984 to study for a B.A. in English literature and psychology from Middlebury College in Vermont. I headed west to New Mexico where I lived for 22 years having many adventures, most recently having founded and run a successful community acupuncture clinic there. I knew when I found community acupuncture during acupuncture school that I would never practice any other way. I believe that CA offers one of the best, most comprehensive systems for the treatment and prevention of all sorts of conditions and is one of the most fun ways to be of service to my community. 

In my spare time, I love hiking and exploring, discovering great books, food, and music, and being inspired by new ideas and progressive people. I am looking forward to meeting you and also finding out about all your favorite haunts for chowda, grindas and best beaches for body-surfing, which I plan to do every spare minute to make up for 22 years of living in a desert. Can’t wait to see you!
