Our practice is located on the beautiful, lush, and culturally rich island of Maui, Hawaii. If you are visiting and wanting to learn more about the intricate and deluxe plant life, or kamaʻāina ready to enrich your knowledge of history, cultural practices, and landscapes, we recommend Medicine at Your Feet, written by our acupuncturist and herbalist, David Bruce Leonard. We also highly recommend our friend and teacher, Ke’oni Hanalei’s podcast, Pohala, which educates and shares about the history and benefits of Hawaiian Fern Medicine. If it is Hawaiian spirituality you seek, check out The Bowl of Light: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman by Dr. Hank Wessleman.
