Lesley Hamilton has been a licensed Oriental medical practitioner since 2003. Her professional clinical practice is currently limited to 10 hours weekly. The remainder of the week she is busy at AOMA as the program director for the masters program as well as teaching herbal medicine and advising students. Her mission in life is to provide support and opportunities for others to excel - patients, students, colleagues, friends, and family.

Hamilton’s patients are loyal, some have been treated by her for 8-10 years. She enjoys being a part of her patients’ healing process – whether or not they can heal completely their quality of life improves. Some patient visits are “maintenance” and others tackle acute events of chronic conditions or something new. One patient with chronic Hep C with stage 4 cirrhosis gets regular acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulations. After receiving care from Hamilton for years, the patient’s medical doctor says, “whatever you are doing, keep doing it!”

Hamilton's specialties include: hepatitis, anxiety/depression, stress induced disorders (psychosocial, gastrointestinal, allergies, neck/upper back/shoulder pain, menstrual irregularities, etc.), menopause, and low back/hip pain. Her philosophy with any of these issues is to engage with the patient and identify what he/she can do between sessions to improve health. Hamilton observes, “For me the appeal of being an Oriental medical practitioner is the time we have for developing a relationship with the patient so that the dynamic of the human interaction can value-add to the healing process.”
