​BA in RTF at the university of Texas in Austin
Massage Therapy at A New Beginning School of Massage
Masters in Oriental Medicine at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine​

Kirsten is a compassionate and sensitive healer. She has been a licensed massage therapist and Reiki master for 10 years, has a masters degree in Oriental Medicine from AOMA

Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. ​At AOMA, she was able to rigorously study Chinese medicine academically and clinically. She elected to include tuina (Asian medical bodywork)
and medical qigong as focuses at AOMA. Yoga is a daily part of her life’s practice as well.
​Kirsten has especially had success alleviating pain from acute or chronic injuries, menopausal and peri-menopausal symptoms​, carpal tunnel syndrome, and erectile dysfunction. Her current studies include Japanese “Hari” style acupuncture with Takayuki Koei Kuwahara​. This East Asian medical art regulates and balances the flow of ki in and around the meridians to strengthen one’s life force.
She is currently a member of Acupuncturists without Borders and will soon be learning how to help communities who are faced with natural disasters with acupuncture.​
​Her first wakeup call to become a healthcare practitioner came when hurricane Katrina hit and the aftermath was felt throughout our southern region.​ “I wanted to have a skill to help people with their physical and emotional losses that was not dependent upon modern technology — for in times of natural disaster, modern technology is not always readily available.”
​Another current focus of study is facial acupuncture in order to assist patients in not only feeling their best but looking their best. Constitutional Acupuncture is a  form of facial acupuncture that incorporates and treats the patient’s psycho-emotional being by way of the 8 extraordinary channels — therefore treating the root of a person’s appearance. Kirsten is taking into her practice several sources of facial acupuncture modalities to offer to her patients who would like to include anti-aging therapy as part of their wellness care.
“What I love about my work is that every day, I have the opportunity to help people feel better and recover from their illness/conditions naturally with acupuncture and herbal medicine.”
