Natasha Baihly

Natasha BaihlyNatasha Baihly, M.Ac., studied acupuncture after experiencing personally a profound healing from Chinese medicine.  In 1990, while studying abroad in France, she developed a skin disorder that would not go away.  After trying several pharmaceuticals and therapies with no change in her condition, Natasha’s mother eventually took her to see a doctor of Oriental medicine. Natasha was impressed with the amount of time the practitioner spent gathering information about her symptoms and body functions, as well as the conscious effort put into customizing a treatment.  She experienced a full recovery from her skin condition, and this initial experience with holistic healthcare planted the seeds for future interest in acupuncture.

With that experience tucked away in the back of her mind, several years later Natasha traveled to the Peruvian Amazon, where she met an acupuncturist who became a mentor, and where she was introduced to the herbal and spiritual medicine of the indigenous people.  Under the care of this acupuncturist, she witnessed people feeling better and taking more control of their health.  This convinced her to return and complete a Master’s Degree in acupuncture through the Tai Sophia Institute in Laurel, MD.

Natasha spends her time outside of the office kayaking, making her way around the Appalachian Mountains, and reading.  She enjoys languages and travel.  Combining the science and art inherent in Chinese medicine, her particular passion is to open doors for patients to realize the part they play in their own healing process.
