Naima Chaves is a licensed Acupuncturist who opened her doors in 2013 to the fast paced Silicon Valley lifestyle. In 2017, she relocated to the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club where she teaches yoga on Saturdays and Sundays.
In August of 2019 she joined the team at Acupuncture Family Healthcare Clinic.
Her infatuation with movement and physiology lead her from a small coastal town on the San Francisco peninsula to Carmel Valley where she apprenticed a top Dressage trainer and breeder of Lipizzaner stallions. Under the mentorship of many she started practicing massage therapy during a very rainy winter of 2006, which she was quickly versed in relieving her patients from acute and chronic pain. She graduated from Five Branches University after a grueling five years of submersion into a completely different perspective of looking at the human body, its reflection and interaction with nature. Tying together holistic health and the myriad of pathologies every single person experiences as defined by modern medicine. Naima brings a new avenue of balancing the complicated yet all to common aliments with a deeper understanding of how the body functions in the traditional medical approach.
