About Practice Owner – Misty Kammarada
Combining acupuncture and bodywork in practice opened many doors to a deeper study of the human body. After graduating from graduate school, Misty continued to build upon her knowledge and mold her healing techniques with further study in pain management. She completed studies in Quantum Neurology Sensory and Motor Rehabilitation with Dr. George Gonzalez, DC and Pain Neutralization with Dr. Stephen Kaufman, DC.
In 2006 Misty began to travel annually to Peru to learn about medicinal plants in the Amazon with a plant maestro. Her enchantment with botany and the inherent intelligence of plants led her to the future use of the medicines of different cultures, such as Chinese formulas, Amazonian plant medicine, and Auyervedic herbs, and medicinal oils.
After completing her graduate studies, Misty traveled to Nepal to live and work in Sechen Monastery Clinic and Hospice, in Katmandu, Nepal. While living in Boudhanath, she began to deepen her study of Buddhism while also working to treat the local people of the community with free acupuncture and herbal medicine. Over the course of her time abroad, she also participated in health camps with other local people, visiting remote villages and monasteries to provide community healthcare to villagers who do not have accessibility to doctors or hospitals.
Misty utilizes all her experience to create a very healing space and strives to be a strong support for herpatients. She loves treating people and seeing the benefits of holistic medicine shine through each one.
