Raven is a health educator who is trained and licensed to practice acupuncture and certified as a yoga therapist, yoga instructor and Reiki master. She also has extensive training in Ayurveda and western herbal medicine.
For15 years, she taught in the Boston area in elementary schools, community centers, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. She was privileged to create and coordinate non-profit/volunteer health and wellness programs for Haitian families in the Boston area post-tsunami; for the First Responders in the Boston Marathon Bombings; fundraisers for Green Chimneys Children's Services & Summer Camps; and was a volunteer LMT at Ground Zero NYC post-9/11.
Based on her own healing routine and work with hundreds of others with low back pain and injury, Raven authored the book:
Back to Balance: Heal Your Spine, Heal Your Life.
(Smartbird Publications, July 2013).
"My passion is showing others how to heal themselves and manage their pain through regular Acupuncture treatments, yoga classes and simple diet and lifestyle changes. All you need is the desire to heal and the willpower to stick with a program."
She currently practices gentle classical Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture and specializes in treating women's health issues, neurological disorders (MS, stroke recovery, Parkinson's Disease, etc.) and low back and neck pain. As a clinical intern and assistant, she has worked at Boston Medical Center in the Pediatric Pain Clinic, the PICU and NICU, as well as Family Medicine; she also interned at Element Care Clinic in Lynn, working with seniors and elders in the PACE program.
