About Us

Kate Sewalk

Our founder, Kate Sewalk, is a Reiki master practicing the Usui method. Since 2000 she has been using the principles of nutrition and quantum physics to perform non-invasive energy work in the human bioenergetic field to manifest change in the physical body.  Her early studies encompassed anatomy, physiology, and physics. Her practice has been personally influenced by the healing principles of Barbara Brennan. She learned her initial work in chakra rebalancing from Buddhist master, Zeffi Kafala, in Sedona, Arizona. Currently, she studies with Vivian Schapera of South Africa and has received several certifications in crystal healing methodologies from Four Winds Academy, in Cincinnati, Ohio.


Michelle Bouchard Clark

Michelle Bouchard Clark began her quest for knowledge of Chinese Medicine in 1991.  While working full-time at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica, California, she studied and attended acupuncture school at night.  Around this time, she was also introduced to a very unique tonic herbal store known as "The Teagarden" in Los Angeles. Tonic herbal medicine has a very interesting approach and Michelle worked and studied there in her free time. 
After a move more north, Michelle finished her acupuncture and herbal training in San Francisco, while working part-time for two different practicing acupuncturists.  In 1997 Michelle received a Master's Degree from Meiji College of Oriental Medicine in San Francisco, California.  She also holds certification with the National Commission of Certified Acupuncturists and has certification to teach yoga.
Michelle moved back to her childhood home, Ligonier, Pennsylvania, in 2000.  She married George Clark in 2002 and gave birth to two beautiful boys; Aidan, 6, and Evan, 4.  She and her family live in Ligonier.  In addition to her Acupuncture practice, Michelle teaches yoga at Latrobe Hospital/Excela Health. Herbs
