Dr. Aubrey Kelly DAOM, LAc., Warm Water Therapist Hello, I work at Healing Alternatives in San Luis Obispo CA. My educational and work pursuits have brought me to the central coast, of which I am enjoying immensely. I offer holistic treatments which include: Acupuncture, Herbal support, Functional diagnostic medicine analysis, Nutritional advice and Warm water therapy sessions. The style of acupuncture that I gravitate towards is the Japanese/5 Element variety. Its' gentle, effective and can be quite profound.
Areas of medicine that I have experience with include (but are not limited to): Trauma recovery, Stress and anxiety, Sleep disturbances, Acute and chronic pains, Gastro intestinal dysfunction, Hormonal imbalances, Autoimmune issues, and Adrenal fatigue.
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your health care team!

I am a retired Holistic Health Practitioner, so I am very versed in many modalities of alternative health care and Aubrey’s passion and skill for her practice is most noticeable.

I respect and appreciate Aubrey as a person and health care provider.” Monica Lucas, H.H.P, RYI, CPCC, CHT
