LEAD Acupuncturist & Herbalist

Tai Hawkins, M.S.A.O.M
Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist, & Massage Therapist     
“Nature and movement have always been healing forces in my life.  As a young hula dancer, we would go to the forest to gather leaves and flowers to make our own lei for performances, only after we gave the proper offerings and gratitude to the aina and the plants.  We learned dances and chants that honored people, places and plants, rooted in the oral histories of Hawaii. We learned protocol; how to clear negative energy before entering a shared space, how to honor predecessors and teachers, how to cleanse the body and spirit in the ocean, and how to close the mouth and open the ears…..All of these teachings, experiences and practices shaped my relationship and mindset toward learning, nature, community and their innate connectivity to my purpose and my wellness.”  - Tai

Emily Cox, M.S.A.O.M.
Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist

Acupuncture came to me at a pivotal time in my life in my early twenties. I was struck with a mystery illness that left many doctors baffled. Nothing had made sense until I met an acupuncturist who both beautifully explained what was going on, and subsequently healed me in 3 weeks - or I should say, created a loving and open space for my body to heal myself. This experience was a very powerful catalyst for me to begin my pursuit of learning and practicing Chinese Medicine. My needle technique has been described as gentle, yet powerful. I genuinely love to help my patients to feel at peace, and in the flow with the universe—the best environment for true healing. ”  - Emily
