Lauren Haythe is both a trained Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) bodyworker and a licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac).
Lauren became a certified KMI practitioner after studying under founder Tom Myers as well as James Earls in Oxford, England. She broadened her structural integration practice by studying orthopedic pain management and visceral manipulation with the Barral Institute and became a licensed bodyworker in the State of New York after graduating from the Swedish Institute in New York.
She graduated with honors while obtaining her Masters of Sciences in Acupuncture from Tristate College of Acupuncture (TSCA) and has graduated from Nigel Dawes’s Kampo program for studies in Japanese herbs. She has studied with various Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners as well as master Japanese practitioners such as Kiiko Matsumoto.
Lauren has completed human dissections to advance her knowledge of the human body with Tom Myers and Todd Garcia. She has also completed the Advanced KMI training with Myers and has assisted him in some of his teachings. Lauren works with a desire to merge the practical knowledge of western anatomy with the eastern principles of Chinese and Japanese medicine in order to treat patients under a plan that best serves their unique and individual needs.
While each session will have some bodywork, her sessions are catered more towards acupuncture and Kampo herbs rather than solely structural integration.
