A Doctor of East Asian Medicine, and a soon-to-be Licensed Acupuncturist, Kiran views her work with massage and bodywork as a lifelong journey that was born from her yoga practice in 2008. She completed her 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training – with an emphasis in Yoga Therapy – in India and soon after received her massage therapy license from Santa Barbara Bodyworks in 2014. In 2019 she completed her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and is currently studying for her acupuncture licensing boards! She utilizes Chinese modalities such as traditional fire cupping, gua sha, and moxibustion, and complements her therapeutic approach with concurrent trainings in Neural Manipulation, as well as Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization.
A major influencer of Kiran’s work was a bout of painful TMJ she experienced as a teen athlete that helped her cultivate better body awareness. She seeks to instill that same sense of body awareness in her clients to aid in their healing. Kiran’s work is also influenced by her passion for rock climbing and yoga.
Kiran is thrilled to work with Catalyst’s inspiring and talented professionals, and the amazing, motivated patients within its community!
