"Every time I leave an appointment, I feel relaxed and rejuvenated with actionable steps to heal." Brandi V

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a safe, holistic therapy that dates back over 2,000 years. Using the philosophy of ancient Chinese medicine, it is minimally invasive and can treat a wide variety of physical and mental conditions without any side effects.

Acupuncture is proven to support:

 

 

When we experience stress, injuries, or changes to our lifestyle, our bodies can become imbalanced and begin to manifest illness. Acupuncture works to heal our body by using the body to connect directly with the brain. This brings optimal communication back which gets overall functioning to improve.

 

Hair-thin sterile needles are inserted into various acupoints which send a signal to the brain that it needs to heal and rebalance. The treatment causes virtually no discomfort and can reduce pain, stress and symptoms very quickly. If appropriate, natural injections will be used to help the healing process and get you back to your life.

Kiya Hunter, Licensed Acupuncturist

Kiya grew up wanting to be a doctor on a 100 acre farm in Eastern Oregon. But after deciding that prescriptions and traditional medicine weren’t for her, she sought a career as a massage therapist. It was during her studies that Kiya’s teacher suggested acupuncture to treat her ongoing vertigo - one session later and it was gone!

“I love the idea of the body being able to heal itself - it just needs the right conditions“

After receiving a Masters in the Science of Acupuncture, Kiya gained advanced training in holistic pelvic care, pediatrics, natural injection therapy, and continues to provide natural treatments for women and families. Kiya also volunteers to support Veterans and postpartum moms with pain, anxiety and PTSD. 

Aside from helping patients, Kiya loves nothing more than spending time with her husband (a USMC veteran) and children on her urban farm in Scottsdale. Here she continues to broaden her knowledge of health, science and natural medicine while staying close to nature.
