I have been receiving acupuncture and Chinese herb treatments from Rachel for a couple of years and the benefits have been outstanding. Her treatments have alleviated and resolved several physical issues and she has provided energy boosts to my system that I had not achieved with other health providers. She is highly intuitive, very knowledgeable about holistic health topics and regularly engages in focused discussions to determine the best strategy for healing. I look forward to my weekly appointments with her with great pleasure, hopeful and confident of the outcomes. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me in holistic health maintenance.
Rachel's acupuncture treatments gave me my life back. Before starting treatments, I was suffering from daily chronic tension headaches. After undergoing treatments my headaches decreased dramatically in frequency and intensity. To be relieved of daily pain is indescribable. I am proof that these treatments work and can improve your quality of life!

About me

My first priority is patient satisfaction. I operate on the basis that you will get better much faster when the focus is deeper than just the symptoms. The root and branch must be treated.

I specialize in recovery from cancer treatment, chronic Lyme, mold illness, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, Lupus, IBS, migraines, hot flashes, and night sweats.

I have extensive knowledge and experience working with people on many kinds of concerns. I mostly work with adults from their 20's to their 100's.

Nationally certified in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Zero Balancing, Acudetox, and smoking cessation, I am an excellent communicator with cross-cultural skills, and speak three languages fluently.

I have walked a long and winding road in my life. I was trained from an early age as a classical musician. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Russian. Next, I mastered the science of computer programming, working with servers and user interfaces. However, as none of these vocations satisfied my need to be of service, I went back to school for Acupuncture, then Chinese Herbs, and finally integrative medicine. I have been focused on holistic health since 2002. I finished my doctorate in integrative medicine in 2017.

My gifts include integrity, intelligence, and compassion, not to mention a quick wit. I offer sincerity, acute perception, and an excellent understanding of human nature and of energy. I am joyfully honored to have found a way to be of service to my world.

My Philosophy of Care

I really wanted to make a difference in this world. However, I was disappointed by western medicine in its approach to chronic illness and general life challenges. I tried acupuncture for my own concerns and felt better so quickly that I dove in to see where it would take me as a career path. It was the best decision I'd made thus far.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients generally describe their first visit as a very relaxing, eye-opening, and positive experience. We start by talking about their needs and expectations. I take a detailed medical and personal history, do a complete examination and give a diagnosis. I then finish with a full treatment, including acupuncture, moxibustion, gua sha, or cupping, if necessary. It's very relaxing and supportive.

My Inspiration

Acupuncture is an ancient medicine and has survived for thousands of years due to its effectiveness and ability to evolve as people's needs change. It continues to evolve and grow even now.

It works by removing blockages to the energy and putting all of the systems into balance. This puts you in touch with your natural ability to heal yourself. For this reason, it can be used to treat a vast number of concerns.
