Hi. I’m Leah.


As long  as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by human behavior and have had a genuine desire to help those in need.  Since I was a young child, I was always taking care of people and offering them solutions on how they could improve their life circumstances.  

I only consciously realized this profound desire to help people and simultaneously change how they lived their life when I discovered acupuncture for the first time.  This awakening was life changing and inspired me to pursue a career in acupuncture and Chinese medicine.  

“Leah is a lovely person with a warm, beautiful spirit. Every week, I looked forward to being in her company as she has such a warm and calming energy.”

Laura Boland

“Leah Shadwick opened the door for me to the world of Chinese medicine. There lie the paths she gently guides me along: those of physical, mental, and spiritual well being.”

Andrea Haber

“My time with Leah was an incredible experience. I had a stress free and welcoming experience with each appointment.”
