Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Herbalist, Doula
Laura is honored to witness and facilitate the soul’s work of her patients and community. She believes that lasting, miraculous healing of the mind and body is found at the spirit level. Our existence is an amazing joyful gift! Laura hopes for everyone in her life to come to a place of being without condition and living from the sovereignty of our hearts. In Chinese Medicine this is called being in “right relationship” and she practices from the principle that all dis-ease comes from being out of alignment with our hearts.
Laura has a passion for working with women in all life stages. She has paid special attention to using acupuncture and Chinese medicine in pregnancy, labor & delivery and postpartum mamas. Becoming a parent is an amazing time of transformation and she is blessed to be a part of this experience.

Deborah believes the body cannot thrive if out of balance and seeks to help her patients feel better through natural means such as diet, and movement, and encouraging their natural healing process with acupuncture. Acupuncture is an amazing, gentle tool that can be used to remind the body that the path to healing is inside all of us. She works with pediatric patients, couples who are preparing for parenthood, and those experiencing pain and discomfort in their bodies. Our bodies reflect what is happening within us and by treating the whole self, our best lives can be appropriately reflected.
