Early life

Rachelle’s interest in Chinese medicine started as a young girl in Honolulu, Hawaii. She can still remember the herbal scents which filled her home as she watched her grandma prepare food and herbal remedies for the family. As she got older, she began to understand that her grandma’s knowledge was rooted in the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine. Time passed and her journey steered her in quite the opposite direction.

Esthetician Career meets acupuncture

She began a career in esthetics which focused on treating the skin and caring for the outer body. After more than a decade of specializing in skin care, Rachelle’s continued interest in Chinese medicine led her to pursue a master’s degree in Chinese medicine. She received her Masters degree from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California.

Knowledge of the inner and outer world to restore balance to the bodying informs her approach. Educating patients in creating harmony through the integration of the emotional, mental and physical aspects of the body is key.
