During My Labor I Kept Repeating –the mantra from your bulletin board: believe nothing but that which is in your own heart. Working together relaxed me, gave me the confidence to go into the unknown and have the birth that I wanted.
I was referred to Tatyanna Teeuwisse for Chronic Pelvic pain. I suffered for years and endured multiple surgeries and was tired of Western Medicine. I went to Tatyanna as a last ditch effort before considering yet another surgery. Tatyanna took me under her wing - setting up a treatment plan and checking in with me between appointments. I began to faithfully take herbs and attend weekly appointments. Right away the fog that my brain had been under lifted and my thinking became more “clear”. Shortly thereafter, I could feel a difference in my overall body chemistry. The frequent and intense pain that I had experienced for years began to subside and the “attacks” grew further and further apart. Today I am at a place that I never thought I would get to! Not only is Tatyanna an amazing healer, she is also a wonderful person and became a friend and confidant.
I have utilized Tatyanna’s professional expertise and intuitive insights both professionally and personally. I have referred clients with multiple somatic complaints, long history of depression, and anxiety driven symptoms.
Many clients come to my office on a plethora of medications and complaints. Tatyanna has provided collaborative treatment with some of my clients and assisted them in reducing their medications in half or more.
My clients become more attuned to listening to their body’s needs, increasing their emotional awareness, and learning to trust their bodies; this is an imperative step when working with people of trauma backgrounds. Tatyanna has also provided loving, gentle, and intuitive support for me during my second pregnancy. At 37 weeks, my body continues to remain strong, relaxed, well rested, and with little discomfort. My spirit remains open, connected, peaceful, and grounded.
I’m grateful for Tatyanna’s special gifts she provides to our community and I never hesitate to refer a client, friend, or family member to her practice.

Classical Chinese Medicine
Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) is a comprehensive medical system based on the writings of various sage-physicians over the last 3,000 years. It provides profound understandings and treatments of the whole person.
Just as energy is understood as both a particle and a wave, the body can be seen as dense, solid matter as well as an electromagnetic field, with the tangible and intangible constantly informing one another—both in pathogenesis and in the healing of imbalances. Chinese Medicine employs this knowledge through the vibrational component of bodywork and the more material elements of herbs and nutrition.
What to Expect
Sessions begin with an extensive intake to assess medical history, physical functions, lifestyle habits, environmental influences and stress. Diagnostic procedures include examination of tongue and pulses and palpation to detect areas of deficiency or stagnation.
Depending on patient preferences and indicated treatment protocols, massage, acupressure, acupuncture, heat therapy or moxabustion, essential oils, cupping, or various other techniques may be applied. Individually tailored herbal formulas will usually be prepared, and dietary/exercise recommendations suggested for daily maintenance between visits.
