Ashley Mechling, L.Ac is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner. Her practice utilizes acupuncture, cupping/gua sha, moxibustion, massage, herbs and nutrition to care for both chronic and acute health conditions. Prior to earning her Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ashley received a Master’s degree in Integral counseling psychology specializing in mind-body healing as well as a certificate in clinical Western herbalism. Drawing from over 20 years in the field of integrative medicine, yoga and Buddhism, Ashley believes in the profound liberation that can ultimately be found when we bring curiosity and awareness to the seed of our pain and suffering, and how the patient-practitioner relationship can facilitate and support this transformative journey. Whether you come to acupuncture for menstrual and digestive wellness, psycho-emotional concerns, aches and pains, or unwinding the nervous system, Ashley’s intention is to help create more space in your whole self for greater ease, flow and embodiment. When she’s not deepening her knowledge of natural medicine, Ashley loves to hike the mystical paths of Mt.Tamalpais and Point Reyes, play with Ayurvedic oils and drink nourishing tea.
