Specialties and Services

Ways you can promote, maintain and restore balance and harmony in your health and all areas of your life.

Functional Medicine

A term coined in 1993 to describe the “medicine of the future”, functional medicine refers to a higher standard of care that includes diagnostic precision using the latest laboratory testing, specific assessment of genetic markers, and custom nutraceutical, dietary and lifestyle plans that target prevention on an epigenetic level.

When you understand how your body works at this level, you can optimize detoxification pathways, work toward optimal genetic expression, and greatly enhance the quality of life.

At Kai Wellness, we are proud to partner with cutting edge technologies at top laboratories to add tremendous value in making functional assessments. We also partner with top of the line, innovative nutraceutical companies to help you achieve your best possible health.

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

This time-tested medicine has not only thousands of years of practice but an ever-growing base of clinical evidence to support its powerful yet natural effectiveness. Thin, painless needles are inserted at specific points of the body to open energy channels and clear blockages. Includes: Cupping, Gua Sha, Moxa, and Acupressure.

Specialty Acupuncture Styles: Japanese (gentle), Esoteric (spiritual-emotional), Pediatric (non-invasive) and Facial Rejuvenation (cosmetic).

Chinese Herbal remedies can support the care of difficult diseases, balance the body, and support natural defenses against the effects of stress and environmental toxins. Chinese herbs are a safe and effective, time-tested resource for optimal wellbeing.

We proudly use only the highest quality herbs and acupuncture supplies.

Nutritional Counseling

Proper nutrition is essential, and without a doubt – food is medicine. Most physical and emotional conditions can be greatly relieved with proper nourishment and supplementation.

More than what we eat, it’s how we eat and whether or not our bodies are effectively absorbing nutrients from our foods that make the greatest difference.

Instead of promoting any nutritional protocols or fad diets, we customize time-tested and thoroughly researched nutritional strategies for each individual based on their unique needs.

Yoga Therapy

Combining practices of body movement, awareness, and toning, breathwork, meditation, and Ayurveda (a 5000+ year-old system of traditional Indian internal medicine) to balance the Chakra energy system, Yoga Therapy helps you reclaim physical, emotional and spiritual health and wholeness.

As a physical therapy, Yoga Therapy addresses not only the target area – it treats the entire body as a whole.

Currently, a vast amount of research is becoming available as to the positive effects of Yoga Therapy on physical ailments, mental health, and spiritual attunement.

Reiki Energy Healing

Reiki being in the lead, research shows the positive effects of subtle energy healing techniques on the immune system, on mental health, and on recovery from surgery and illness.

Gentle placement of hands at various energy centers of the body deeply relax and allow powerful insight to come through. Reiki works great alone, and especially well as an adjunct therapy to any treatment.

What our clients are saying…

... an important part of my recovery

“My health issue was a brain hemorrhage that caused a stroke. I have done a great deal of Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. Karina was highly recommended to me by a doctor who has treated me for 5 years. She has improved my posture, my body is more aligned. She’s shown me how important proper breathing is to help me move and walk. Karina is extremely well educated and knows the body. Her energy and temperament are calming. She is an important part of my recovery.”

A gift on my path...

“As a Reiki teacher, practitioner and Yoga Instructor I hold space for many people and give a lot in a field I’m passionate about, I’m forever on the search for practitioners I am able to receive from with the same level of integrity and care. Karina’s powerful yet gentle sessions have been such a gift on my path. Her wealth of knowledge, kindness, expertise and intuitive clarity create a deeply healing space, supporting awareness and renewal.”

Karina works from her heart...

““About one year ago I was having trouble managing severe anxiety when I found out that I had tumors on my Kidneys. My acupuncturist referred me to Karina, and right away when I started working with her I felt a heavy burden lifted. The anger I felt about a difficult life situation gave way to compassion, and I have been feeling better and better emotionally ever since.

I am so grateful to have found Karina – with Acupuncture, herbs and Reiki, she offers a package deal! It is worth driving 1.5-2 hrs. each week to be treated by her. I’ve noticed an overall improvement in my quality of life, any aches and pains I had have disappeared, and no matter what I come in with I always leave feeling amazing relief.

It is important to me to be treated by the right person – Karina works from her heart, I feel she really understands me. I am grateful I found her.“ “
