Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Herbalist, MSTCM, CST, Spiritual Coach and Ceremonial Facilitator
Having grown up around holistic practices and spending most of her life in the mountains, she was inspired to learn how to assist others in healing. Studying Chinese Medicine and Shamanism made her feel at home, and many aspects of her life started to fall into place. Understanding the cycles of life, the seasons, and the flow of nature, and building a relationship with these elements has become the core of her existence.
Before starting her studies in Chinese Medicine, she met a Lakota Medicine Man who became her first spiritual teacher. She studied with him for eight years, during which time she underwent deep emotional healing and faced many challenges. Despite these difficulties, she found the experience to be incredibly beautiful.
In 2016, Joaquina courageously left her secular job of 20 years to pursue her dream of starting a healing practice alongside her life partner. With her extensive background in Chinese Medicine and Shamanism, she artfully incorporates deep healing into her treatments, inspiring those around her to follow their passions and live authentically.
Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Herbalist, MSTCM
While pursuing my B.F.A. degree at the University of Colorado in 2001, I chanced upon a Tai Chi class being conducted on the campus lawn. I was captivated by the graceful and meditative movements being performed by the students, and I soon joined the class to explore Chinese concepts of health and healing. This led me to become a student of Master Zhu Xilin in Tai Chi and Qi Gong, who was the top student of Master Shi Ming, as featured in Bill Moyer’s “Healing and the Mind” series. Through this experience, I was inspired to become a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, so that I could share my knowledge with others and assist them in their healing journey.
I believe in a holistic approach to health that combines the principles of both Eastern and Western medicine. When necessary, I recommend consulting with Western doctors. However, when incorporating Chinese Medicine is crucial for achieving the best possible results, I guide my patients toward the path of recovery.
