Bio: My name is Kiara Segal. I am an acupuncturist and East Asian Medicine practitioner working out of Boston, MA. My practice is rooted in an understanding of the complex intersection between personal, social, and environmental health. I offer treatments that strive to reflect the diverse ways in which we heal, and give space for that process to unfold in its own time, and with its own unique character. My hope is to offer an opportunity to breathe, reconnect with ourselves and find some peace amidst the chaos.
