Larissa Stewart, LAc
Larissa Stewart is a nationally board certified acupuncturist with over 17 years experience, and nearly 24 years of experience teaching qigong, taichi, and yoga. She loves acupuncture because it works; naturally, with no extreme side-effects, for a wide variety of conditions. Larissa believes passionately in the body's extraordinary ability to heal itself. When acupuncture activates that powerful healing force, pain disappears, illness resolves, depression and anxiety life, weight is lost and vitality is restored. Her approach is straight forward and compassionate - creating a safe space where clients can feel heard, at ease, and receptive to acupuncture's healing effects.
People seek out Larissa because she's good at eliminating pain, and skilled at "untangling" complex/mysterious health conditions. Her eclectic style blends Traditional Five-Element Acupuncture, Dr. Tan's Balance Method, and non-needle techniques such as accupressure, guahsa, moxibustion, hands-on qigong healing and Matrix Energetics.
To extend acupuncture's effect and enhance client health and well-being, Larissa also teaches simple yet profound, self-cultivation practices like that of tai chi chuan, qigong (various styles), breath work, visualization, and yoga to diverse groups, including business professionals, fitness and yoga instructors, acupuncturists, children and adults of all ages and backgrounds.
