About Kim

Kim Wutkiewicz, Lic. Ac., MAOM, Dipl. OM, RYT-200 Hour, Meridian Yoga Certified

Through her commitment to mind-body practices, Kim has devoted her life to guiding clients toward their ultimate states of well-being.

Kim is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine, and is nationally board certified in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

She obtained her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine after four years of study at the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), the oldest acupuncture school in the United States. Her formal training includes Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture, Medical Qi Gong, Reiki, Chinese herbal medicine and nutrition. Kim has treated diverse patient populations in a variety of clinical settings, including Pathways to Wellness, Rosie’s Place, Lemuel Shattuck Hospital, the Malden Family Health Center, Upward Spiral Studio, Samara Yoga Studio, and two small clinics in located in rural Uganda.

Throughout her adult life, Kim has consistently sought to discern patterns of health within living systems. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, she spent several years teaching environmental education and sustainable farming in Vermont. Through this work, she gleaned a fundamental understanding of the intrinsic healing capacities of the natural world. When her focus shifted from the wellness of ecological systems to the wellness of human bodies, she refined her sensitivity to the mind-body connection through the practice of meditation, yoga, and aikido.

In 2005, Kim enrolled at NESA to formally pursue a career in the healing arts. In addition to completing the required coursework, she traveled to Japan in 2009 to study Shakuju therapy, a subtle form of acupuncture that relies on the pressure of blunt needles on specific points rather than the insertion of needles into the skin. She has spent hundreds of hours assisting Kiiko Matsumoto, a Japanese acupuncture practitioner, well-known for her mastery of receiving direct feedback from patients’ bodies. In 2010, Kim completed an intensive, six-month course on Medical Qi Gong with Paul Fraser. In addition, Kim is a 200-hour RYT certified yoga instructor, with an additional certification in Meridian Yoga. Most recently, she has been deepening the roots of her Chinese Herbal Medicine practice through a two-year graduate mentorship program with Sharon Weizenbaum at the White Pine Institute.

Kim integrates her knowledge of anatomy, movement, nutrition, and Eastern energetics into her treatments to encourage each patient to achieve a state of optimal health. As a dedicated teacher, she encourages her clients to learn how to listen more carefully to the language of their bodies. Through newfound insight and sensitivity, Kim’s patients learn to confidently stand at the helm of their own health.
