Anya works with her patients to facilitate healing in themselves. Because she is sensitive to needles herself, she has developed an extremely gentle style. Anya doesn’t believe that acupuncture needs to be painful in order to be effective. Anya loves watching her patients who had felt discouraged or frustrated before treatment find healing and relief. She is passionate about deep, restorative relaxation–both for her patients and for herself!
After completing her degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine at OCOM, Anya spent five weeks studying acupuncture in China. Following that, she volunteered with the acupuncture relief project in Nepal for two months where Anya got hands-on experience as a primary care provider and made lifelong friends.
Anya is also a homesteader living in a 7’x9′ cabin on 5 acres, and loves spending free time doing construction making her tiny house a little bigger. Framing walls and hanging floor joists are particular favorites. She is a voracious reader, often devouring a book a day when she has time off. Weather permitting, there’s nowhere she’d rather be than floating the river by her house.
