Sylvia Salcedo

I am the clinical director for the Acupuncture Lounge and strive to make your experience the best it can be. From a young age I loved health care. I used to follow my father during his rounds at the hospital since I was 7 years old! I really dove into alternative medicine when I was 20 and studied Ethno-botany, at the University of Hawaii, which taught me a wide range of healing modalities from around the world. I received my masters of Science in Oriental medicine from the Southwest Acupuncture College in 2005. During school I had an amazing opportunity to study under my mentor and friend David Scrimgeour. He taught me Japanese Acupuncture, herbal medicine and how to excel with treatments using functional medicine specifically on women. You can find my private practice at http://www.sylviasalcedo.com.

Rachel Mathews

Rachel studied Massage Therapy in the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Crestone Healing Arts Center in Crestone, CO. She is trained in Acupressure, Shiatsu, Swedish, Reflexology, Hot Stone, and Reiki, and enjoys integrating these in her treatments. Rachel approaches massage therapy from the perspective that we are mostly empty space, vibrating particles that conform to thoughts, postures, and intentions. Nothing is separate. When we intend towards our own healing, when we take energetic responsibility for maintaining a higher vibration, we take as step towards the healing of the collective as well. Rachel seeks to hold space for your intention. She believes in the power of massage therapy to bring us into the awareness of our bodies as temples, conduits for life force energy to flow in harmony with nature. In addition to massage, Rachel is passionate about Kundalini Yoga, and her little black cat, Crunchy.
