Project Description

Kristine Roy, CHHC, AADP

I am a modern-day medicine woman with a deep belief in the curative power of nature and a passion for traditional healing practices and folk medicine. Specializing in women’s health (with an emphasis on the childbearing years), my mission is to facilitate truly holistic healing for my clients – mind, body, and spirit.

I am a Western clinical herbalist with ten years’ training and experience, as well as a board-certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, well-versed in functional nutrition. In addition, I am a certified Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki practitioner, Vaginal Steam Facilitator, Cupping Therapist, Full-Spectrum Doula, and Childbirth Educator.

My Training

I began my formal study of herbal medicine in 2010 with wise woman herbalist Susun Weed. In addition to many years of rigorous self-study, I attended Demetria Clark’s Heart of Herbs Herbal School and the Clinical Herbalist Training Program at Vital Ways (formerly The School of Traditional Western Herbalism), in addition to classes at Arctos School of Botanical and Herbal StudiesThe School of Forest Medicine, and the Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism.

In 2012-2013 and again in 2017, I trained as a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, and Childbirth Educator with Childbirth International, finding inspiration in the work of Ina May Gaskin, Robin Lim, and Dr. Michael Odent, among others.  I studied traditional birth practices from around the world with Mamma Primitiva in 2012. In 2017, I attended the “Pregnancy: Massage & Acupressure for Birth” training with Leslie Stager, RN, LMT at the Oregon School of Massage and Usui / Holy Fire II Reiki Levels I & II training with ICRT Senior Reiki Master Teacher Colleen Benelli. From 2017-2018, I trained as a Birth & Bereavement Doula and an Adoption Doula with StillBirthday. Also in 2018, I became certified as a Vaginal Steam Facilitator by the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute.

I received my training as a Holistic Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and was board certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner in 2013 by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. During my time at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.

In 2015-2016 I received training in functional nutrition from Andrea Nakayama’s Holistic Nutrition Lab, Jordan Reasoner and Steve Wright of SCD LifestyleChris Kresser, MS, LAc, and clinical nutritionist and functional medicine specialist Josh Gitalis. I received training in stone medicine with Sarah Thomas, LAc in 2017 – 2018 and became a certified cupping therapist with the International Cupping Therapy Association in 2018.

What Kristine’s Patients Say

I had a one-hour cupping session with Kristine Roy in her beautiful treatment room. I had woken up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain and Kristine was able to fit me in the very next day! It was a miracle. I couldn’t even turn my neck or look upward without terrible pain and tightness. With just one session, I gained my range of motion and lost the terrible pain I had been in for hours. She used several different types of cups and several different techniques to make sure that I was getting the help that I needed. It was always very comfortable and she was very professional. I will definitely be going back for maintenance treatments!

Thank you, Kristine!
