She believes that with the right food, herbal medicine, regular acupuncture and plenty of emotional healing and work, our bodies can exhibit amazing healing powers! Kasie’s commitment to Acupuncture and Natural Medicine is exemplified in her own personal healthcare and that of her three children, combined with her clinical practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Kasie is the owner of Calm Community Acupuncture, in Safety Harbor, FL. She also practices Acupuncture at Novus Medical Detox, providing relief from the symptoms that arise with detoxifying from drugs and alcohol. She has a passion for women’s health, specializing in fertility issues and hormone imbalance. Growing up in Michigan, she was never exposed to Natural Medicine in any form and moving to California was her first exposure to TCM. After just one Acupuncture treatment, she wanted to learn more, began to research this ancient healing art, and soon left her acting career in California and starting studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, FL.
As a graduate student, Kasie focused her clinical specializations in gynecological disorders, infertility, and anxiety/depression, she learned quickly how effective acupuncture and herbal medicine can be in combating these syndromes. She studied directly under Dr. Shan Liang, an MD in China, with over 25 years of experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Kasie has supplemented her training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with extensive training in Labor and Delivery, becoming a Doula certified by DONA, and trained by Candy Mueller, the Bay area’s premiere Doula trainer. Kasie has attended numerous births and is always on call to help new Moms with nursing, lactation assistance, and post partum depression. Her nutritional knowledge is extensive. Having 3 children of her own has provided her with unparalleled abilities to understand and treat the youngest of patients, including babies! Yes, you can do acupuncture on babies!
Kasie’s referrals in the community cannot be measured by numbers, in fact, it’s safe to say that she is treating more patients in the Tampa Bay area than many other acupuncturists combined.
Kasie has been called upon to do speeches on Multiple Sclerosis, she has spoken directly to many of the local support groups, as well as speaking for fibromyalgia awareness week. She treats numerous patients suffering with ALS and has directly addressed the ALS support groups in the Bay Area.
