About Dr. Katie Robinette LAc, DACM
Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
I’m so grateful my path lead me to become an doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I love helping people feel better in a gentle, safe, drug-free way.
Looking back, I can see that my first step towards a career in holistic medicine was through nutrition. As a kid, I loved reading my mom’s books about food cures. I was like a sponge, remembering all the healing properties of different foods, such as what ailments they treated and what vitamins they contained. By the time I finished high school, I knew I wanted to practice holistic medicine.
In college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I found myself taking classes on the history of ancient China, Eastern religions and philosophies, and Japanese art classes, without knowing about acupuncture. When I was finally introduced to the concepts of Chinese Medicine my senior year, I was immediately hooked. I know in my heart I was meant to choose this profession.
As I learned about the body through this holistic lens, I learned how foods and lifestyle factors directly affected my body, mind, and spirit. When I applied the knowledge, I felt better.
Receiving acupuncture has been very helpful to me, and is the best way I know to feel balanced and centered when things go awry. Staying healthy can feel like a full-time job sometimes, and I’m grateful to have the wisdom of this ancient medicine as a guide for me and my patients.
