"I love introducing people to the timeless wisdom of Chinese Medicine – especially how it helps us find balance and self-awareness. My unique style of treatment is to combine acupuncture with other Chinese modalities including cupping and moxabustion, and to incorporate bodywork in each session with my additional expertise in Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® and Chinese Tuina massage."

Reiki Level-2 Practitioner,
Treehouse Goods owner
Tara is an intuitive healer. Raised on a tree farm by her father who has a passion for replenishing the forest, she learned a deep respect for the Earth and all life forms. Connecting with nature daily from a young age, this natural healer was able to recognize and tap into Source energy.
Understanding how all things work together - including body, mind, and spirit - and with a strong sense of intimate one on one personal relations, she provides one with a safe place to explore the deep rooted inner-self. She helps to promote healing while intuitively reuniting each individual with deep reserves of internal wisdom, balance, and serenity.
Tara prays that more realize they can take control of their own health and will become partners with a variety of healing supports. She wants to help teach you to reconnect with yourself and your intuition, to trust life and the world again, to develop self-love and respect so you don’t have to look outside yourself for those things and can freely offer them to others.

Liz came to yoga first for exercise, but soon discovered it was a great source for stress relief as well. Whenever she was stressed, she found herself heading to yoga class. Wanting to deepen her understanding of yoga, Liz studied at the Kashi Ashram in Atlanta under the guidance of Swami Jaya Devi Bhagavati and the senior teachers. Here, she completed her teacher training certification and learned about all the ways yoga can affect your lifestyle beyond your physical health. Her teaching style is centered around welcoming anyone to yoga who wants to practice, no matter their experience or body type, and being kind to yourself and noncompetitive in class. Seva (sanskrit for service) is an important part of her yoga practice “beyond the mat”.
Joel began practicing yoga at age 12 when he discovered the book Yoga and Health by Selvarajan Yesudian and Elisabeth Haich at his grandfather’s house. At this early age he mastered yoga poses using only this book for guidance and continued practicing by himself on and off over the years. Many years later he found himself enamored with Ashtanga yoga and currently practices and teaches this vigorous form of yoga. He has earned a 200 Hr. teaching certificate and has studied under Sharmila (granddaughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) in India, Doug & David Swenson, Kino MacGregor, Ginger Garner, Amanda McMaine, and many other dedicated yoga instructors. Joel has studied and practiced Kundalini yoga and provides workshops in this energetic practice. He plays the harmonium for local Kirtan events.

Chris Miller is a practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism of over eleven years. After spending several years exploring various spiritual traditions, both eastern and western, he found a deep connection to the life and teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Through the generosity of several teachers, he came to understand that the Buddhist teachings and practice of meditation have the potential to benefit others even if they are not necessarily interested in Buddhism itself. Along the way, he received training in teaching shamatha meditation and enjoys sharing the simplicity of meditation with others.
He advocates that every one of us is inherently good and through the practice of meditation we can recognize not only our own goodness, but also the goodness in others. He is a founding member of Karuna Buddhist Meditation of Lexington, a group interested in exploring meditation and Tibetan Buddhism.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys playing music, reading, writing, and riding horses.
