My Bio & Philosophy

Carissa’s passion for humanity-healing was birthed inside her infant body. As a child, she was known for her deep empathy. Devoted to witnessing the world and gathering wisdom, she spent years traveling. While learning about -and loving people- from around the globe, it became evident that pain captures all walks of life. Mental pain. Physical pain. Emotional pain.

Carissa’s connection with Traditional Chinese Medicine embodies her expansive values and purposeful priorities in life. Her studies of ancient knowledge were built upon the theory that we are interconnected with nature. The essence of these timeless teachings allows individuality to be wholesomely honored.
