“I have completed and continue to study advanced principles in Chinese Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th Generation Daoist priest and Chinese Medicine master. I have been teaching the Five Elements for over twenty years and have provided Five Element counseling to hundreds of individuals and couples. I am also a graduate of Eliot Cowan’s Plant Spirit Medicine studies program. I have studied intensively with well-known teachers and former students of J.R. Worsley, who brought Five Element Acupuncture to England in the 1960s. I also have a license in massage therapy and am certified in acupressure by the American Organization of Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA). My acupressure practice is very unique and diverse, focusing on ancient Chinese healing practices that are largely unknown today in the Western culture. People travel from around the world to my clinic to do intensive Alchemical work with me."

Meet Raili Raud

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).
Chinese Medicine captured her interest when she witnessed the healing of her son through Chinese Medicine treatments with Leta.

Before becoming fascinated with the field of Chinese Medicine, Raili received her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Mount Holyoke College, earning the highest honors and membership into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
