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 (the AOBTA).My acupressure practice is very unique and diverse, focusing on ancient Chinese healing practices that are largely unknown today in the Western culture.

Meet Raili Raud, L.Ac., MAOM., Dipl. of OM
Raili is our Senior Practitioner providing Acupuncture, Acupressure (as an alternative to acupuncture), Herbal and Dietary consultations and Alchemical Healing treatments, such as the Thirteen Ghost Points. 

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. 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 the 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.

“I came to the office with a certain sense of defeat, and it was Raili’s trust in both my ability to heal and the integrity of the medicine she offered that served as an anchor in the beginning of our time together. I understand now how vital it is for a practitioner to be able to see a path towards healing for their patients, and to hold up that hope when the patients can’t see it themselves. ”
