Happy New Year everyone! We are thrilled to start 2023 on a high note by welcoming our new acupuncturist, Kyla Hanley.
Kyla has 17 years of experience treating individuals for their unique health issues using acupuncture. Here at Hudson Healing Arts, she’s excited to incorporate biodynamic craniosacral therapy into sessions to add an even deeper level of healing.
Kyla’s approach to healing
Kyla was born in New York and went to the University of Maryland. After moving to New York City and working in various high-stress environments, Kyla was in search of something more rewarding. She found it at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture, where she fell in love with acupuncture and graduated with a master’s in science in 2006.
Kyla is trained in various styles of acupuncture, including:
As an added bonus at the end of sessions, Kyla often adds gua sha and cupping massage for 2-3 minutes, usually on the back or a tight area of the body, which both feels great and boosts circulation.
“Combining acupuncture and craniosacral therapy is deeply relaxing and brings you to a calm, meditative state,” she says. “From that state, sometimes your mind will work through issues on a different level. It can feel like the benefits of talk therapy, without talking.”
For Kyla, self-care looks like going to her happy place - the beach - and taking Pilates reformer classes. She adores taking new courses in the holistic healing realm. Her inspiration is Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, an herbalist, massage therapist, and midwife who went to medical school at age 40 and served as the Director for the first Interprofessional Fellowship in Integrative Health and Medicine. Kyla admires her teaching style and compassion towards people, animals, plants, and all of mother nature.
