Career Path: Kayleen's career is in line with her passions and moral compass and therefore she believes the work she does is heartfelt and meaningful. She loves that her work helps clients find balance and vibrant health within themselves. She personally experienced the power of this medicine after fracturing her femur and recovering twice as fast as the average patient with acupuncture, therapeutic massage, dietary and herbal therapy.
Philosophy on Patient Care:
Kayleen believes quality care is far more important then a large quantity of patients. She focuses on one patient at a time and dedicates 60+ minutes with every patient providing time for an in depth intake and an effective individually catered treatment.
Self-care: Kayleen practices what she preaches. She receives regular acupuncture and therapeutic massage, meditates and journals daily, consumes organic whole foods ideally local and in season, explores beautiful San Diego with her pup on nature walks every day, and attends a variety of yoga and ballet classes. She balances a busy practice with travel to connect with family & friends as well.
