Meet Raili Raud,L.Ac., MAOM., Dipl. of OM
Raili is excited to be part of the Alchemy Healing Center and can’t wait to meet you. She is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. However, if needles are not necessary for you, she is highly skilled in acupressure as an alternative to acupuncture. Raili also currently provides Alchemy and the Thirteen Ghost Point treatments. Chinese Medicine captured her interest when she witnessed the healing of her son through Chinese Medicine treatments with Leta. After a year of studying with Leta, her intrigue and fascination with Chinese Medicine grew to a point that she changed her long-held plans to attend Western medical school and, instead, enrolled in a Chinese Medicine program. Before becoming fascinated with the field of Chinese Medicine, Raili received her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Mount Holyoke College, earning highest honors and membership into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Raili received her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) from the Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts where she was trained in Classical Chinese Medicine based on the teachings of Master Jeffery Yuen. Raili is licensed as an acupuncturist and herbalist by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine, and she is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).Please call our office to schedule an appointment with Raili for all modalities of Chinese Medicine.
