We are all devoted to integrating the use of Chinese medicine with the more mainstream western care most people receive, and we are proud to be a part of the established professional medical community in the Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida regions.
Each practitioner in our clinic has an undergraduate degree and then attended a four-year graduate school program in Traditional Chinese medicine. Their medical education included extensive training in Chinese medical theory and diagnosis, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, western medical theory and diagnosis, as well as massage and qi gong. The clinical training took place in a busy outpatient setting under the supervision of doctors of both Chinese and Western medicine.
While all of our acupuncturists have been trained as general practitioners, each has their own unique specialty.

Client Experience Guide
Kiera has an intimate understanding of the client experience. Her background as a ballroom and Latin Dance instructor and training in pre-professional dance for over three decades has given her an acute knowledge of the human body from an athletic standpoint. In addition to this, Keira has been on a journey of chronic health challenges since her early childhood, exposed to a plethora of traditional and alternative healing modalities and many types of practitioners and healer personalities.

Keira’s deeply personal experience and her gentle, graceful demeanor means she easily relates to our clients’ very real experiential needs. She understands the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a complex healing journey.
