Kellie Chambers, L.Ac., MAOM, Dipl.Ac.
Owner and Operator of MoonTree Medicine, LLC and also an independent contractor at Hawthorn Healing Arts Center in Bend, Oregon, has studied Chinese Medicine for over a decade. She applies her passion for healing with ancient Eastern practices, in order to better serve her community. As a Licensed Acupuncturist focusing in Classical and Taoist approaches to health and balance, Kellie utilizes several modalities including Acupuncture, Asian Bodywork, Chinese Nutritional and Herbal Medicine, Qigong Therapies, Cupping, Gua sha, Moxa, Sound therapy and Essential Oils in her treatment sessions.
Kellie’s love of plants and nature led her to a B.S. in Botany and Plant Pathology at Oregon State University. But it was her awareness of Qi (and several Aikido injuries) that led her to earn a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Kellie went on to train with Dr. “flying needle” Wong, in her post graduate study at the NanJing International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in NanJing, China. She passionately passes along her knowledge of this ancient tradition of practice to the next generation of Healers, teaching Cupping and Gua Sha Workshops (through Cupping Dynamix, LLC) all over the greater Northwest Region to Acupuncturists, Physical Therapist, Nurses, Massage Therapists, and many more, wishing to add some Eastern wisdom to their varied approaches to healing.
Kellie has been studying meditation in many forms for the past 16 years. She is a Ling Gui Certified Master QiGong instructor and continues as a student of Taoist medicine with the Ling Gui International Healing School of Qigong. In addition to treating patients, Kellie offers weekly Qi-Gong classes and in-depth weekend workshops on a seasonal basis. She adds to her qigong instruction with a background in Aikido and Zen style Meditation as well as a 200 hour yoga teacher certification, specializing in Yin yoga.
Amber Wodtli (formerly Clark), LMT, BCTMB
With over 16 years of experience, Amber's expertise in teaching and practicing the art of massage ranges from Deep Tissue Sports Massage and Myofascial release, to Neuromuscular Therapies and Chinese cupping. Her main focus in bodywork is geared toward working with amateur and professional athletes, and educating clients on the benefits of recovery and self-care. As a 10 year teacher at Central Oregon Community College, Amber's dedication to her students and their educational experience is held in high regard. Her continued pursuance of knowledge concerning the body—its symmetry and structure - is not only evident in her practice and her teaching but also in her way of life.
For her, the human body is a fascinating machine, a genuine work of art. She wholly believes and embodies the sentiment that true power comes from within, and she sees the power of touch as a healing and sustainable way to connect with the self and realize one’s full potential.
She started integrating cups into her Therapeutic massage practice in 2006 and found the benefits to be truly remarkable. She felt compelled to gain a deeper understanding of the true nature of cupping and to explore the history in which it came from. She discovered new and resourceful ways to blend the ancient tradition with modern day therapeutic methods for phenomenal results. She started teaching cupping workshops in 2009 with the hope of sharing this wonderful ancient art to many in the field of bodywork. OR lic#10629
Quincey Sigona, LMT
Quincey's love for working with her hands and pursuit of a healthy body and mind, have naturally led her to the path that she is now on. The culmination of these life experiences, from childhood to present day, have inspired Quincey to pursue her life's calling in massage. She is proud to have obtained her Associate of Applied Science degree in Massage Therapy, where she had the opportunity of first meeting Amber & Kellie. Greatly influenced by the two, she has taken Amber's sport approach and Kellie's eastern techniques, to create a wonderful and eloquent combination that she blends in to her own daily practice. Her company “Massage by Q” is located at the Bend Rock Gym.
At the young age of ten years old, Quincey began working with a sports trainer and chiropractor. By the time she was thirteen, she began receiving acupuncture treatments for overall health and well being, and has continued to do so to this day. Both of these left an overwhelmingly positive impact on her life, that it is no wonder she gravitated toward studying sports & therapeutic massage, shiatsu, cupping and gua sha. With all of the teachings she has received in her years, Quincey hopes to guide you along your educational journey, just as gracefully as her mentors have done for her.
In her off time you can find Quincey climbing out at Smith Rock, backpacking and adventuring through the cascades of Oregon, honing in her fly-fishing techniques on the river, or simply enjoying the peace and tranquility of camping beneath a star filled sky. OR lic #3023551
