Licensed Acupuncture & Eastern Medicine Practitioner
Nationally Certified Massage Therapist & Bodyworker
Reiki Master Teacher
Keely was very fortunate that she knew her soul's purpose at a young age. Even in her teen years, she had a strong understanding of the benefits of eating high quality and whole foods, keeping her environment toxin-free, and the importance of preventive medicine. Keely knew in high school that she wanted to become an acupuncturist but living in the southeast and with limited access to acupuncture schools, she would have to wait.
Right out of high school, Keely relocated to the heart of Kentucky to study therapeutic massage and bodywork at the Lexington Healing Arts Academy. In the Spring of 2007, she graduated from LHAA and soon after received her National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Upon graduation, She moved to Savannah, GA where she practiced bodywork for nine years and became an esthetician before her journey to California.
In the spring of 2017, Keely started attending South Baylo University for her Master's in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, and graduated spring of 2022. A few months later, she passed the California licensing exam, completing her goal of becoming a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner. She is currently working on her Doctorate of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health & Science
Now, with over 15 years of experience, Keely has received over 7,000 hours of education along with thousands of hours of research and personal experience to create the highest-level services possible and to provide all her patients with quality treatments.
The principles and foundational theories of this powerful medicine have now been integrated into her daily life as well as her practice. She lives by the same principles that she guides her patients towards.
When she is not studying or with patients, there are a few other places you'll find her - On top of a horse, she has been a 3-day eventer since 11 years old, or you can find her out in nature either hiking, overlanding, nature bathing or listening to music. It is in these places that she feels the most balanced and grounded.
It all starts with you.
Keely's mission is to assist her clients in becoming in-tune with their whole self, guiding them in taking responsibility for their health and create balance in their lives.
As your practitioner, she will provide a safe and comfortable setting, guiding you down the healing path and relieving you of stress, and even supporting your recovery from previous ailments or discomforts. In this way, you will effectively master your life and live in accordance with your highest purpose. It is her belief that her patient's needs are of the utmost importance. She is committed to meeting those needs. Community members in need of services will not be turned away due to lack of funds. Every body matters!
