"I understand what it's like to know you need to get help, but you just don't have the time, energy, or support. So you just ignore your needs...until your cup is completely empty, your health is kaput, and maybe you find yourself feeling worse. I'm a mom of two and a holistic practitioner of 10 years. After sacrificing a lot of my own health and wellbeing, and seeing other women out there doing the same, I decided to create Sacred Living Wellness to be a resource for women. Coming from Hawaii, where I learned the importance of community, I'm here to create a sacred space for women to get in touch with themselves and learn to love and appreciate their bodies even during times of pain, suffering, trauma, and illness. I've combined my years of experience as an acupuncturist and holistic practitioner with my own personal experience as a mom, parent, and health-conscious individual. The services I provide are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction theories and philosophies. I've found the most effective techniques to be an integration of physical, mental, and emotional. Many times an emotional illness may have hormonal imbalances that make the issue worse, or vice versa so in my practice often times, I integrate different therapies to ensure you are getting the support you need."
