She specializes in family medicine, which includes Pain Management and Women's Health, and is able to treat a wide variety of common medical conditions. Her primary goal is to support families and individuals who seek a holistic model of healthcare.

Chiaki is licensed by the Texas Medical Board as well as Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine, and began studying Japanese Acupressure and Oriental Medical Theory in 2001 at Boston Shiatsu School. As a Zen Shiatsu therapist she found profound benefits in Acupressure Meridian Therapy, she sought to pursue further and deeper understandings in Oriental Medicine.
Between 2004 to 2014, she has apprenticed with a Japanese Master Acupuncturist, Kiiko Matsumoto, Lic.Ac., a former lecturer of Acupuncture for Physicians Course at Harvard Medical School, Cambridge, MA before moving to Austin.

After 8 years of practice in Boston, Chiaki now lives in Austin and focuses on helping patients to restore health and harmony by integrating traditional medical practices with modern medicine. Her primary goal is to help keep families healthy naturally as she tailors and individualizes steps of treatments to each, and treat the illness at root level in addition to the symptom itself.

She earned her Master's Degree in New England School of Acupuncture, Newton, MA and was nominated for the Compassionate Healer Award in memory of Peter Faust. Chiaki has practiced acupuncture in a number of settings including Mount Auburn Hospital (Cambridge, MA), HIV and AIDS Clinic, Dimock Hospital, Detox Wellness Center, as well as her private clinic.

Patient Testimonial: printed with permission

"Thank you so much for your assistance with my recent physical ailments. I have had many problems with my shoulder and have been advised by numerous doctors to have surgery to repair my rotator cuff. I have also been notified by orthopedic surgeons that I will need knee replacements on both of my knees. Since I have been a patient of Chiaki my flexibility and energy has increased substantially because of these regular acupuncture treatments. My doctors are amazed at my progress and I will not need surgery on either my shoulder or my knees. I really feel like a new person and enjoy life so much more because of the care that I have been receiving from Chiaki. Thank you so much."
