AImee “Hara” Thompson, L.Ac grew up immersed in Alternative Medicine. Naturopathic, Acupuncture, and Chiropractic Care were standard treatments in her Mother’s household, and she was encouraged to study healing on her own. Her earliest memories are of wanting to care for kids that were having a hard time, and when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Hara replied ” A Baby Doctor”.
At the age of 12, she began learning (with the help of her Healthy Chef Mother) to cook nourishing meals. Her personal study of Yoga and Buddhism began soon after. At the age of 15, Hara began working at the Chiropractor Office that she grew up seeing. There she had the amazing opportunity to train as a Muscle Testing Assistant- using small vials of sample supplements and foods to see how the body responded to these various substances.
At 17, Hara took her first Reflexology/Holistic Health Course, and the passion was ignited! She attended undergrad at Humboldt State University while raising her first Child, and then completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and an 800 hour Massage Training. Taking the Traditional Chinese Medicine/Shiatsu module in school encouraged Hara’s interest in providing Alternative Care, and she moved to San Diego to attend Pacific College of Oriental Medicine- a premier Traditional Chinese Medicine Masters Program.
While it wasn’t an easy road, raising 3 small children all through her schooling, Hara persevered, and graduated in 2014 with a Masters or Science Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine. Her focus in school was on learning Gentle, Effective Acupuncture, Powerful Herbal Formulas, and care for Women and Children, as well as more Serious Medical Issues. Since then, she has continued her training with studies in Holistic Nutrition and Functional Medicine, Preconception and Fertility Support, Pre- and Postnatal Care, Infant and Child Holistic Health, and multiple methods to assist with Pain Relief, Vertigo, Insomnia, Anxiety/Depression, and Chronic Fatigue.
Those interests have persisted over all of the years, and Hara now happily provides amazing Comprehensive Care to all members of the family, any age, any condition.
So, whether you are struggling to start a family, are dealing with a Chronic Condition with anyone in your family, or just need assistance with balancing your Health, Hara is Here!
