Acupuncturist Trina Lion has provided pain and stress relief for children, adults, and families since 2005. She has a decade of clinical experience in Shanghai, China and is the first acupuncturist to have been credentialed by the Department of Medicine at Mercy Medical Center and by the Sheppard Pratt Health System. Trina is currently providing acupuncture at Pivot Point Counseling in Towson, MD.

Trina treats both psychological and physiological symptoms. Do you have headaches and stress? An addiction and indigestion? Scars and memories you would like to fade? For any combination of symptoms, Trina teaches as she treats. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes nutrition, work-life balance, emotional regulation, and bodywork. You will feel better and be empowered to make choices that improve your well-being, focus, and quality of life.


"I never felt better than I did when I was being treated by Trina. I felt like my body was working together instead of against itself. What I enjoyed most about the treatment is the way she explains everything that’s going on in your body; she doesn’t just treat the symptom. I really felt like I was in sync on a lot of levels." K.G., USA                                                       

After graduating from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in NYC, Trina moved to Shanghai, China to experience local, urban TCM. She interned at ShuGuang Hospital and Shanghai Humanity Hospital, was a TCM specialist in a foreign clinic, and taught Traditional Chinese Medicine (to foreigners) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. During her 10 years in Shanghai, Trina lectured on TCM in locales including NYU in Shanghai, NFL China and L'Oréal China. She was the cover story on Shanghai Family magazine and a TCM specialist on the Shanghai TV show "Culture Matters."

Trina relocated to her native Baltimore in fall 2015, where she has been providing acupuncture to children and adults in her signature caring style. She has lectured on TCM for local institutions including Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland Medical Center, Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, and the Maryland Acupuncture Society. She has drawn health comics for the Shanghai University of TCM journal Chinese Medical Culture and has written on wellness for JMORE. Trina has provided acupuncture in the Medi-Spa and post-op at Mercy Medical Center and was the Eastern Meditation and Movement Specialist at the Retreat at Sheppard Pratt for seven years. Trina is currently in graduate school for social work, to offer a blend of Eastern and Western mental health care.
