Lauren Haythe is both a trained Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) bodyworker and a licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac).
She obtained her Masters of Science in Acupuncture from Tristate College of Acupuncture (TSCA) and is currently enrolled in Nigel Dawes’s Kampo program for studies in Japanese herbs. She has studied with various Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners as well as 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. Her KMI work focuses on the Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians, where she reworks clients posture and soft-tissue patterns through the Twelve Series.
A registered yoga teacher, Lauren has studied with various talented yoga teachers including the New York Kula directors Schuyler Grant and Nikki Vilella. Lauren integrates certain yogic principles, sequences, and strength-based routines into rehab and maintenance programs for her clients following their sessions. This is derived from the belief that proper anatomical alignment as well as a yoga practice catered to the postural alignment of each client is critical for reeducating the body.
