Misty Kammarada, L.Ac, is a licensed acupuncturist and a specialist in the treatment of pain and injury. She takes a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to each treatment by combining acupuncture, bodywork, and energetic balancing.
Misty has built her knowledge over the years and molded her healing techniques with study in pain management and functional healing. She has studied Quantum Neurology Sensory and Motor Rehabilitation with Dr. George Gonzalez, DC, Pain Neutralization with Dr. Stephen Kaufman, DC, and John Barnes Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR). Her acupuncture approach is hugely influenced by Dr. Richard Tan’s Balance Method, and also from Master Tung’s style of classical acupuncture.
For years, Misty traveled 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 herbal formulas, Amazonian plant medicine, Ayurvedic herbs, and medicinal oils.
Early in her career, Misty traveled to Nepal to live and volunteer at 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 regular accessibility to medical care.
Misty utilizes all her experience to create a very healing space and strives to be a strong support for her patients. She loves treating people one-on-one and seeing the benefits of holistic medicine shine through.
