Board Certified Acupuncturist, Dipl. OM, MSCTM, CranioSacral Therapist
Approximately 20 years ago, Joaquina experienced a significant life-changing event. She dedicated herself entirely to the process of recovery, both for herself and for those around her. As part of her journey, she aimed to reconnect with her Native American roots. She underwent an 8-year apprenticeship under a Lakota Medicine Man, a student of Archie Fire Lame Deer. This path led to her initiation as a Medicine Woman and to studying the traditions of South America, where she grew up.
She moved on to complete the CranioSacral Therapy program at the Colorado School of Healing Arts. Her unwavering passion for Chinese Medicine and plants from an early age drove her to pursue a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She further expanded her knowledge by studying Functional Medicine to address the complex health issues of modern society effectively.
Credentials & Licenses
I believe that...
I specialize in
Coming from a personal background of GI issues, I specialize in treating difficult GI issues. IBS, IBD, bloating, leaky gut, bacterial/yeast/viral infections, food poisoning, and more.
I have assisted in over 10 births and believe motherhood to be a sacred rite of passage. My training taught me the value of preparing the body with detox, herbs, balancing, and healing protocols to address deeper layers that support fertility.
As women, we need to reconnect with what it means to be a woman of the earth. This involves learning to track your moon cycle, herbal therapy, energy balancing, daily rituals, and tuning into your heart as a guide.
For a spell, one of my passions was learning about and treating chronic illness in a community of individuals with Lyme disease, skin issues, inflammatory disease, MSIDS, and its many symptoms.
Living in a modern world requires staying up-to-date with proper detox protocols to improve mental health, reduce inflammation, prevent disease, lose weight, and balance hormones & thyroid.
My profound spiritual training and years of working on deep emotional/spiritual levels with myself and others helps me intuitively tap into the many dimensions of a person’s healing to bring about change from within.
