In this Course…
Kevin shares 6 self-care and qigong practices which support varying stages of a fertility journey. These gentle exercises are safe for the body and calming for the mind. By working with the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (known as the microcosmic orbit in Chinese medicine), hormones like progesterone, estrogen, luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, cortisol, oxytocin are regulated, which helps:
- Reduce stress through nervous system regulation
- Balance hormones for peak fertility and mood
- Mobilize joints to facilitate optimal circulation
- Improve lymphatic flow to flush out waste and toxins

In his first career as a ballet dancer, Kevin continually returned to acupuncture and yoga as potent tools to heal from various injuries and illnesses. As such, his practice weaves modern somatic sciences with eastern healing arts. Kevin believes everyone’s health journey is a unique work of art. His clinical practice is ignited by discovering each person’s distinct alchemy of vitality and providing patients with a heart-centered, research-based space to address:
- Fertility, prenatal, and postnatal care
- Digestive and hormonal issues
- Anxiety and stress-related conditions
- Musculo-skeletal pain
- Queer- and POC-aware care
Kevin has trained in tui na (Chinese medical massage), reflexology, medical qigong, Shadow Yoga, non-violent communication, and polyvagal theory to support western science and the body’s full spectrum of health and wellbeing: both short- and long-term. In his spare time, you can find Kevin experimenting in the kitchen, making music, dancing, learning about new cultures, and exploring the natural world (oceans and sunsets are his favorites!)
