KELLEN GRIMM, L.Ac, MSTOM, they/them/their
Kellen graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine – New York with a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. After completion of this four-year program, Kellen qualified as a Nationally Certified Diplomate in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the highest level of certification available. In addition to acupuncture and herbal medicine, Kellen uses techniques including moxibustion, cupping, and gua sha in their treatments. As a non-binary trans person, Kellen is passionate about LGBTQI competent health care and the intersection of social justice and health. They live dedicated to the transformation of the body-mind-soul in order to achieve growth, balance, and passion. Kellen sees how, in our society, holistic health in general and acupuncture in particular commonly exclude some people. Thus, Kellen is committed to maintaining a practice that is anti-racist and anti-classist.

Physical health cannot be addressed without also examining and nurturing emotional health. This is true for an individual as well as for the body of a group or organization. In addition to helping you establish routines that will nourish you, we will also help you be true about the obstacles between you and peace. Sessions will be tailored to your specific needs.
