"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.”

“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!”

"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
"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"I wanted to share my experiences with Tia since starting acupuncture treatments with her. I was experiencing extreme pain in my left leg and hip. Unknowingly at the time I had 2 cysts growing on my spine that were pressing on the nerve causing sciatica symptoms (I eventually had it corrected with surgery after over a year of dealing with the pain) - but before I could wrap my my around surrendering to surgery I wanted to try everything I could naturally. Thankfully I met Tia - let me say a couple of things about me and where I was at going into my first session with Tia - first I’m scared to death of needles and second I did not believe it would work AT ALL. I went because my husband urged me to do something - anything about the crippling pain I was in - I could not walk more than 10 steps without stopping - I could not stand for more than 5 minutes- all I could do is sit and squat and lay down to alleviate the pain - I was miserable and unhappy.
So I laid down on that table with no hope and knowing it was probably a waste of time but again I was miserable, sad and in pain so what the hell. The minute the first needle went it I began to feel such powerful emotions I started to cry - I saw swirling colors of the Chakras and a feeling of being pulled from my body - I had to center my thoughts and literally felt I would have floated off the table if I had let go and allowed the sadness and pain to consume me. The surge of energy and healing wasn’t immediate because we learned my body likes the opposite - left leg pain - right leg needle placement. By my 3rd visit, Tia and I were so in sync that I could tell her what area was feeling the chi from her needle placement. I zapped her a few times with my pent up energy but I think sometimes it’s because we have such a strong connection. Tia not only brings me a sense of being healed but of also being heard. We have such a bond and trust that she hears me when I am asking for a needle placement that I feel is wanting attention.
Tia has given me back my happiness and wellness- I plan to continue maintenance with Tia as long as it feels right.
I am happy to say I have been 100% pain free since March 2020 and I continue to enjoy my time with Tia every month. It is the best self care and “me time” I can give myself. I hope everyone is as blessed as I am to experience the amazing talent Tia has for the art of acupuncture and plant spirit healing.
Mahalo for the opportunity to share my wonderful and powerful experience with Tia."
