Blair Sylvan Grey, DOM
This profound and ancient medicine was introduced to Blair at 23, a very stressful time in her life, when she was diagnosed with “incurable” Bell’s Palsy - the left half of her face was paralyzed. With 6 acupuncture treatments her face movement returned and this life pivot moment had her then pursue the integrative approach of healing. Her studies since 1999 continue to delve into a Daoist “5 Element” perspective. Utilizing this medical model, she worked at an inpatient center for 10 years, and has continued to assist beings to live in balance, in their recovery from trauma, addictions, mental-emotional overwhelm, pain and stress management, as well as the physical manifestations of varying “dis-ease”.
Blair is excited to be part of this awesome community and looks forward to offering classes so she may share this ancient wisdom to inspire folks to empower themselves. Each class will offer practical “Elemental” information that supports the wellness of mind, body and spirit. (See flyer or site for details)
Blessed to live amidst the elements, Blair built her off the grid home in the Pecos Wilderness. When she is not hiking with her two canine co-pilots, she is sipping on tea, knitting really long, ‘dr who’ scarves, listening to the wind or attempting to paint watercolors.
Inez Jones, DOM
I have been in private practice since 1997.
I graduated from Texas College of TCM in Austin, TX before returning years later to my home state of New Mexico so our daughter would grow up near her extended family. At which time I attended International Institute of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, and began practice in Santa Fe and Los Alamos in 2003.
Traditional healing with herbal teas, massage, and prayer were embedded in my youth by mother, who also encouraged me to seek acupuncture treatment. I was resistant but quickly became intrigued while simultaneously being healed of my aliment! The catalyst into Traditional Chinese Medicine was given to me by my beloved husband whose love and encouragement brought me this space and time as a practitioner. All these years later I still remain intrigued, and fascinated by shifts of energy that I am privileged to witness before during and after a treatment.
My first Acupuncture experience healed me of aliment but this medicine opened my eyes, my mind and my heart to the brilliance, complexity and wholeness of the human body and its relationship/connection to the earth and to one another. It is with this intrigue, fascination and with continued expansion I practice and continue to learn from our community.
