Her past clinical experience includes providing a full range of care to patients at the MCPHS University Health Center in Worcester; supporting independent living for adults over 55 with chronic health issues at PACE Health Center in Lynn; and educating patients on the diverse range of health benefits of Eastern medicine in the Family Medicine Department of UMass Memorial Hospital in Worcester.
She is the recipient of several service and leadership awards from MCPHS University.
Her specialties include pain management and women’s health. Her sub-specialties include acute and chronic pain, dental pain and anxiety, insomnia, respiratory health and pre, peri and post menopause. Girouard is the founder of the nonprofit Eastern Medicine Responds! Inc., which haas provided pain and stress relief to South Shore Health System’s healthcare workers during COVID-19.
“I was first introduced to Eastern medicine while caring for my 88-year-old mother and seeing that Western medicine could only go so far in relieving her chronic pain,” said Girouard. “Through the use of acupuncture therapy she was able to regain her quality of life. Together Eastern medicine and Western medicine are two halves of a whole, offering a truly integrative medicine experience.”
