Kate F Busby MA, MSOM, LAc
I am an Oregon Medical Board Licensed Acupuncturist, sound healer and yoga teacher committed to helping people who are suffering and want to find healing.
I believe in the original meaning of the word health, which comes from the Old English hælþ, meaning "wholeness, being whole, sound or well, integrity." For me, healing doesn’t just mean alleviating symptoms. By definition, healing is about integration and connectedness.
I value the experience of being connected, feeling whole and doing the transformative work that’s often necessary to get there. In fact, I think that’s a big part of why we’re all here. This is reflected in my whole-person approach to healing.
Each person I work with I see as a unique individual and each treatment is based on your specific needs. Because I place such high value on integration, in our time together I’ll incorporate a diversity of modalities to address the all layers of your being: body, mind, heart and spirit. Sound healing, bodywork and somatically-based methods of trauma resolution and nervous system regulation will further and deepen the beneficial effects of the acupuncture you receive. I will also recommend therapeutic yoga exercises and other forms of rehabilitation or self-care to utilize between visits in addition to diet, lifestyle and herbal medicine that are incorporated into a treatment plan.
I work well with adults, infants, children and teens who are seeking a holistic, energetically-based, integrative approach to healthcare, including those who need or prefer gentle treatment, want trauma-informed treatment or are LGTBQ indentified, including folks currently in transition.
Here are some examples of what I’ve been able to help people through:
In my time outside of my healing practice at Kwan Yin Healing Arts East, I teach weekly yoga classes, workshops and immersions at The People’s Yoga and The Bhaktishop Yoga Center. I love spending my time on my own yoga mat, getting out for a hike, a paddle or bike ride, cooking something up in the kitchen or adventuring with friends and family.
