Gretchen earned her Masters of Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, California. After her graduation from Five Branches, Gretchen became an apprentice at Six Harmonies Traditional Medicine Center in Los Gatos, California.
Through her mentorship with Jennifer Minor, LAc, Dipl OM (NCCAOM), and Miranda Warburton, PhD, LMT, both distinguished healers and martial artists, she deepened her understanding and skills in Chinese medicine and CranioSacral Therapy. It was here that she studied Jin Shou Tuina (Chinese massage), and she went on to become an AOBTA Certified Practitioner of Jin Shou Tuina.
Gretchen is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl OM – NCCAOM) and is a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) in both California and Colorado.
My passion is to help women of all ages progress through life’s changes and challenges with grace and by honoring their bodies.
