Keely’s clinical specialty is Myofascial Pain Management and Cosmetic Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation, with extensive training in the myofascial system, trigger point therapy, and neuromuscular release.  By combining her previous bodywork knowledge along with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, she has created a unique experience that helps get to the source of your discomfort and provides treatments with lasting results.

Along with treating humans, Keely also treats animals, specifically horses. In 2024, she completed her training as an animal acupuncturist and is a Fellow of the American Board of Animal Acupuncture. 

Keely founded Yūgen Wellness in 2022 with the intention of creating a safe space for deep healing to take place.  At Yūgen Wellness, you will receive one-on-one care to understand your needs and create a unique treatment plan that engages the body's natural ability to repattern and heal itself. The goal is to address all parts of the person, mind, body and soul. This is done by using various modalities like acupuncture, cupping, herbal medicine, movement, breathwork, and food therapy—all the while, empowering you on your journey to reach your vision of health.

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, out in nature either hiking, overlanding or nature bathing. She is also a lover of music. It is in these places that she feels the most balanced and grounded.

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.

 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!
