Acupuncturist, herbalist and author Aimee Raupp is a women’s health and fertility expert. Her mission is to educate and inspire women to improve their health, celebrate their beauty, prevent disease and increase their fertility so they can live full, self-directed lives and achieve on their own terms.
In her 20's, working as a research scientist in the field of neurobiology, Aimee struggled with ongoing healthcare issues. When Western medicine was unable to provide relief, she turned to Eastern medicine. From this early experience as a patient of acupuncture, she discovered how a mind-body-nutrition approach was key to finally overcoming her illnesses and maintaining good health. Ever since, Aimee has dedicated her life to the practice of Traditional Oriental Medicine.
Aimee’s first book, Chill Out & Get Healthy (Penguin), is a call-to-arms for women to reclaim their emotional and physical wellness before lack of wellness becomes serious, intractable disease. Aimee’s inspiration for the book came from her many female patients in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, from all walks of life, often with successful and dynamic careers, who faced all-too-common illnesses that result from high-stakes, fast-paced living.
Aimee’s second book, Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now & Into Your 40’s (released June 2012), builds on the themes of her first book, and draws from Aimee’s success helping hundreds of women who’ve struggled with infertility get pregnant and have healthy children. The book details fundamental nutritional precepts essential to fertility, provides a five-day sample menu and is a pre-release of Aimee’s forthcoming volume on fertility and health.
Aimee is currently in private practice in Manhattan, the Hamptons and Nyack, NY, and is developing her original, organic Aimee Raupp Beauty product line.
She has appeared on ABC Television's “The View”, Yahoo! Shine, Martha Stewart Radio, FOX Television’s “Good Day New York”, and in national magazines Glamour, Woman's Day, Self and Better Nutrition. She has served as spokesperson for such brands and companies as Culturelle, Whole Foods, lululemon athletica, and the American Leisure Spa Group. She is the women’s health columnist for Acupuncture Today, a monthly contributor to Mommybites.com, and an active blogger.
Aimee earned a Master's of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California, and a Bachelor's degree in biology from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She holds a license in acupuncture and Chinese herbology in the state of New York and is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
