Licensed Acupuncturist  #AC11778
Diplomate of Oriental Medicine
(N
CCAOM)
Master of Science

I discovered the healing powers of acupuncture and energetic medicine during my recovery from a life-altering injury in 2001. My Master’s of Science degree is from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley, California. My specialties include:

  • Pain resolution
  • Chronic and complicated conditions
  • Stress/emotional imbalances/mind medicine
  • Addiction detoxification (ADS)
  • Women’s reproductive health/endocrine imbalances
  • Natural prescriptions
  • Sound and color therapies

I have also been an Allied Health Professional at Sonoma West Medical Center and Palm Drive Hospital, Sebastopol, where I treated patients pre- and post-operatively to minimize pain, anxiety and surgical complications and to speed recovery.

Our history, lifestyle, diet, environment and attitude all play an important part in our health, and I strive to empower people in their healing process through education, intuition and compassion. I am also a vocalist, dancer, designer and writer.

“Jody is top notch…knowledgeable, warm… and kind. She really listens and I feel so comfortable in her care.”  – Evelyn S., Cotati, CA
 
“Jody has changed my life with her wonderful and highly professional work as an acupuncturist and herbal medicine expert. When I met her, I had great pain in my back and leg, and I was suffering from serious sleep problems. In a few short weeks, she has cured my sleep disorder and relieved my back and leg pain. She has also helped me with a number of other physical problems through her wholistic approach to health. Jody is skilled, knowledgeable, thorough and a very caring health professional. I highly recommend her.” – Chris K., Sebastopol, CA
 
 

Cairyl Gardner

Certified Massage Therapist
Medical Massage in a Hospital Setting Certification
Neuromuscular Therapy Neck & Back Pain
Specialist

Clients appreciate my intuitive and attentive care. My approach is to integrate various modalities to personalize treatment in a safe, healing space.

Although I am trained in many styles, such as Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic Drainage, spa services and energetic massage, my favorite technique is the blended European style emphasizing neuromuscular therapy. For over five years and until its recent closure, I was a credentialed Allied Health Professional at Palm Drive Hospital’s Integrative Health Care, Sebastopol, CA.  My other passion is music – I’m a drummer.

“My chronic shoulder and neck pain is so much better after Cairyl’s massage I always look forward to my next visit.”  – Kathy J., Sebastopol, CA
