about karen

Karen trained at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in the UK, where she received her Licentiate in Acupuncture and a BA(Hons) from Oxford Brooks University in 2003.She began receiving acupuncture herself during an extremely trying time in her life, and says ‘acupuncture is what kept me on the planet, so much so that I wanted to make it not only a career, but a way of life, a personal cultivation’.

Karen is a skilled acupuncturist with over 10 years experience working with her patients to evaluate the concerns they bring to treatment and provide the care they need to heal and move joyfully into their lives.  She has volunteered her acupuncture skills to Acupuncturists Without Borders in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and in Springfield, MA after the tornado in 2011.  She began working with people with multiple sclerosis, and chronic fatigue right after graduating, and has worked hard with them to help them manage and improve their lives.

Karen has a focus on trauma recovery, including combat and critical incident trauma, and she has been providing a free clinic for veterans, military personnel, first responders and their families since 2007.

Karen began offering Chinese Medicine Nutritional Coaching in 2012 in an effort to utilize one of the precepts from the Chinese Classics: food is the highest form of medicine.

She offers customized treatments in a peaceful setting she shares with Greenfield Community Acupuncture.  Her work evolves through her work with her patients, and her ongoing continuing education and self-directed study.

She is fully licensed  by the state of Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine, and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Jennie kristel's Blog

This blog is about my work and my art. I work as an artist and expressive arts therapist. For over the last 14 years I have worked in South East Asia, and most recently in Kenya and Egypt helping social activists, counselors, and artists develop ways in which to engage with those who experience and encounter issues of poverty and related social issues, using the expressive arts and therapy and Playback Theatre.
