Let's work to put all the pieces of your health together, & make it last.

PHILOSOPHY

The human body is a puzzle, each piece fitting together to create the masterwork we live in for our whole lives. My practice is dedicated to working with all of the pieces and organize them into a whole of essential wellness. From your bones, fascia, and organ function to the worldly impacts on your body - including stress and repetitive movement, I address immediate issues and build a program of care and support that lifts your entire constitution into balance.

 

I believe that you are the captain of your own ship. Because so much of this work can be supported and continued at home, I create plans for whole-body health that include nutrition (what you could eat and why and how) and deep relaxation techniques for integration. This is part of the greater health coaching I offer to all of my patients, complementing in-office visits with directed self-care.

EDUCATION

I hold a Masters of Science degree from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco and am a licensed massage therapist. Woven into my work are extensive training from healing traditions including Thai massage, Tui Na (Chinese sports massage), and Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal massage). I also teach these modalities to professionals seeking to expand their education and co-authored the therapeutic pillar of AcroYoga International’s curriculum for teachers and practitioners.

COVID SAFETY PROTOCOL

I firmly maintain industry best practices for sterility and safety in acupuncture.

During COVID, these practices extend to include the following:

  • masks are worn at all times by practitioner and patient

  • all touch points and therapeutic surfaces are sanitized between patients

  • patients are requested to wash their hands before the start of their session

  • increased ventilation and HEPA air filters are standard

  • increased the buffer time between patients for ventilation

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions around this protocol.

 

TESTIMONIALS

Prior to seeing Carolyn for acupuncture, I had been in severe left shoulder pain due to a shoulder fracture. After only 3 acupuncture treatments I was able to eliminate a prescribed strong narcotic for pain relief. I continue to see Carolyn for weekly acupuncture treatments and occasional bodywork. There are no words that I can think of to describe the amazing healing and relief I have felt each time I have had a treatment by Carolyn. She is one of those healing practitioners that are the "Real Deal."

Let's get you started on the path to wellness
with a free 20-minute consult.
