Portrait with Hands Clasped

"I’ve crossed paths with some great acupuncturists over the years, but none have quite captured the all-around thoroughness and genuine care that Tia brings to the table. Her approach is not only skillful but it’s also very deeply intuitive. With a simple check of my pulse and a few focused questions, she tunes into exactly what I need and really gets to the source of any issue. Every session that I’ve had reveals a deeper layer within me…which in turn has  empowered me to be more accountable with my own physical, mental and spiritual health. It has helped me to establish better daily habits.

What I’ve come to really appreciate about my monthly visits with Tia is just how wonderfully professional she is. Tia is always on time and is an effective communicator. She makes our time together feel genuinely valued. Above all, she is non-judgmental, nurturing, and creates an atmosphere that just radiates so much comfort and thoughtfulness. Plus she will go out of her way to give wonderful, custom recommendations to enhance your healing process. Her services are truly unlike any treatment I’ve ever experienced from an acupuncturist. I wholeheartedly endorse her for your acupuncture needs."

"The first time I met Tia, I was quite taken by her positive calming wisdom and passion. Tia's style is a wonderful treat from the standard Chinese medicine. Her needles are very effective in the precise placement for maximum benefits. She has other gifts up her sleeve with plant spirit medicine. I really like the tuning forks and  found great benefits with her own flower essence formulas. The best part is she relies on her accurate intuition. Tia has helped my recurring pains dissolve away. I leave feeling lighter, clearer, cleansed and rebalanced for my body and spirit."

"Tia has not only provided amazing treatment with acupuncture and cupping, but also kind, encouraging words of wisdom. She has been an incredible part of my journey through infertility, loss, and then pregnancy! I always leave appointments feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and blessed. Tia + Jenni are an incredible gift!"

-C. Smoker, Kauai, HI

"Today I received my first Five Element Acupuncture session from a beautiful soul, Tia. Feeling so blessed for this connection. Tia is also a practitioner of Plant Spirit Healing, as fellow plant weaver, I really got down with her work. During the session I felt wrapped in a cocoon of safety and nourishment. After the session Tia gave me a custom Flower Essence blend that she had prepared specifically for my needs. I am reminded of how good it feels to open, to let more spirit in. Thank you Tia!"

-A. Flemino, Kailua-Kona, HI

"Tia’s acupuncture treatments are integral to my ability to maintain mental and physical balance.  I initially came to Tia for help with my frequent headaches from TMJ, an issue that I’ve struggled with for as long as I can recall, and one that is exacerbated by work-related stress.  She treated what I thought was the main issue, and then continued working with me, delving deeper and unearthing more ways that I could maintain a healthy, and holistic balance—to a depth that I didn’t know I needed.  She is a pleasure to work with; her approachable and curious nature are super fun, and she is a true joy to be around.  Tia clearly knows her stuff; her technique is intuitive, gentle, and directly addresses the root of imbalance.  I always look forward to my appointments, and leave feeling refreshed, recentered, and ready for the world."

-C. Koczarski, Kailua-Kona, HI

“If you haven't tried Five Element Acupuncture you are missing a powerful modality that complements traditional acupuncture. Tia is passionate about the subject, highly intuitive, listens carefully and also can blend in other modalities like plant spirit medicine, so you can not only heal but feel really great. So grateful for her care!”

- C. Sprauge, Kailua-Kona, HI

"My husband sees Tia, and she has done so much good for him, especially when it comes to managing stress. Her treatment healed a chronic open sore on his ankle that he had for nearly three years. No one else could diagnose or treat it, including a podiatrist and dermatologist.”

- C. Bobo, Kailua-Kona, HI

"Tia’s mastery of her craft as an Acupuncturist cured me of a chronic pain issue that I had had for over 5 years and had been beginning to think I would have to live with forever. I was 100% better after just 3 treatments!

Tia’s mastery is only secondary to her purity of intention and kind disposition. She is a joy in every way and I can’t recommend her enough."

-Anon, Captain Cook, HI
