Functional Medicine & 5-Element Acupuncture Healing Sessions

Enrollment is Now Open for Renewing You 2022

Renewing You is a 9-month program focused on clearing up any damage created by lifestyle stressors (emotional, inflammatory, dietary etc) and creating a strong foundation for your long term wellness. You will receive support for every aspect of your being; Body, Mind, Emotions and Essence through functional medicine, health coaching, and community support.

Welcome

As a lover of deep medicine, I am passionate about tending to all parts of ourselves as humans on this ever changing trajectory of life. I am devoted to personalized care and profound transformation. Although I believe that we are already whole and don’t need to be “fixed”, I know on a very personal level how impossible it can seem when you are in pain, exhaustion, and overwhelm. 

I am here to offer you a chance to look at your health and wellbeing from a new perspective. My intention is to be a catalyst for you to align with your deepest desires and reconnect to your innate wholeness. Together, we can expand your idea of what it means to feel healthy and bring you to new depths within.

With a focus on determining and treating the root cause of your symptoms along with profound attention on lifestyle patterns, we use the science of lab work along with the intuitive nature of your own body to inform the best course of treatment for each individual. Whether you are experiencing fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, headaches, hormonal imbalance, depression, insomnia or digestive concerns, we can offer the support you need.  Using Functional Medicine and/or Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, I am passionate about assisting you in finding and keeping your unique balance, health and wellness.

To learn more about the New Client process and to get started, we recommend you schedule a 30-min introductory call.

This call is designed to hear a brief overview of your health history and to ensure that working with me is a good fit for your health and wellness goals.

In trust and love,

Kelly

What Patients Are Saying

“What I love most about Kelly is that she looks at everything, digging down under what is obvious to find what is at the root of the obvious. Kelly has guided me to be patient with the healing process to take a longer but more complete journey. Without Kelly’s guidance and advice, I would still be suffering and very unwell.  I am grateful for her every day.”
“Kelly is a breath of fresh air. She helped me find energy again with being a new mom, helped me discover how my body was not operating under optimal conditions, and got my body into balance again so that I now have way more energy, can be the type of mom and partner that I want to be, as well as can feel more confident going into trying for baby number 2. Now my husband is getting tests done with her, this wholistic type of health and healing is priceless. Kelly is very knowledgable, intuitive and passionate about her work; is very validating and kind, and has a wonderful sense of humor! She’s a pleasure to work with!”
“To begin with, Kelly is both highly intelligent and intuitive. Using both, she has become a highly skilled acupuncturist as well an intuitive, empathic healer. In 5-Element Acupuncture, after the client’s energy has been balanced and fortified, the acupuncturist will access the spirit of the client. Kelly is able to quickly tune into a client’s energy and spirit.  I know that when I leave after having a treatment with her, I am energized, relaxed, focused, and balanced. Smiling too!”
“I first came to Kelly during a difficult transition time, and found her sessions to be important and transformative in my healing process. Each one helped me to feel more grounded, centered, and energetically invigorated. Kelly is a wonderful listener, very professional, incredibly intuitive, and a natural healer. Her treatments are the best I have ever received and I recommend her to any one in need of deep healing work.”
“Kelly has been such a blessing in my life. I’ve tried everything in the book to heal my intense adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalances and nothing really worked until I started receiving her acupuncture treatments. Since working with Kelly, my energy has improved, I feel much stronger and my menstrual cycle has regulated! I’ve seen other acupuncturists before and there’s something different about Kelly… her 5 Element Approach feels less invasive to my sensitive body compared to traditional acupuncture. But most importantly, she truly cares about your healing.”
