Tamara TCM began with an idea – a TCM Wellness Clinic with a high standard of professional care. Serving with integrity and compassion. To educate and empower others. The better you are the better I am. The better I am the better you are.
I moved home from Seattle in February 2012 after passing 4 National Boards through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and started Tamara TCM in March 2012. At first, I rented a room out of an established acupuncture clinic in Temperance, MI. It was a great start – I was there for one year before the Ohio laws changed, allowing me to practice herbal medicine in Ohio. I met Scott McBride (our resident CCT Master Teacher) in that first year of practice and we became friends. He helped organize and implement systems into the growing practice, which soon moved to Perrysburg, OH – going from 1 room to 2000 square feet. The clinic now had employees and an herbal dispensary – in fact, my mom was one of the first employees. After meeting my husband and starting a family, I met Carol Kremer, who ran the clinic while I was on maternity leave. Carol knew Yesenia DeCapua from school and that is how we all convened.
We were in Perrysburg for 4 years before moving to Uptown Maumee in June 2017 and it has been a wonderful journey. We love the community and culture here. Many people have come into the clinic, adding their energy and helping it grow. I’m grateful and blessed to work with this amazing team of women and eternally grateful for everyone who has left their mark on this entity, helping make it what it is today. Here, now, I realize what you do with an idea – you change the world!
We are beyond proud to be your best local resource for Natural Medicine. Come in and see us – we’ll make you TCM Tough!
