State licensed and nationally certified acupuncturist and herbalist.


Tolley offers a unique style of Japanese acupuncture that combines gentle precise needling, moxa heat therapy and hand work. She uses a hands on approach that measures the body's response to the acupuncture treatment in a way that enables an ongoing dialogue between patient and practitioner allowing for profound change to unfold. Tolley continues to study East Asian Medicine with nationally and internationally renown teachers in a never ending pursuit to deepen her understanding of human health. She enjoys working with all conditions especially pregnancy and women's health. Tolley earned her Masters degree and National Diplomat status in Oriental Medicine in 2011.

In her free time Tolley enjoys yoga, being with her family, live music and studying.
