Kelsey Fernandez is a board-certified Chinese Herbalist (NCCAOM), Diplomate of Oriental Medicine and licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Illinois. She graduated with honors from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine where she earned her Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM).
As part of her studies, she interned under some of the country’s most renowned Chinese medicine healers. This helped to shape her own unique and effective healing skills. She has worked with medical doctors, physical therapists, psychotherapists, and many other western medical professionals using collaborative, integrative treatment strategies to help patients with a wide range of health conditions.
In 2002, Kelsey began her professional healing career in Chicago. As co-founder of Art of Natural Healing, Ltd., her focus was on “whole family health” and treated a variety of ailments, such as infertility, weight loss, chronic pain, stress, skin disorders and more. At times she would treat up to three generations within the same family ranging from infant to senior. She has also very successfully assisted over one hundred women conceive and bear children through natural, holistic medicine.
In 2018, Kelsey opened her solely owned clinic, Xceed Acupuncture, Inc. in River Forest, Illinois. While still focusing on whole family health, she exercised her passion on serving those who’ve served, our nations veterans and active military. As one of the few registered acupuncture clinics in the Chicago area, her clinic provided urgently needed alterative healthcare to many grateful veterans who suffered from chronic pain, PTSD, anxiety, addiction, and depression. Due to heavy clinical restrictions as a result of COVID, Xceed Acupuncture, Inc. was forced to close its doors.
Kelsey has gained an excellent and diverse skillset that allows her to effectively treat many ailments naturally through multiple modalities, such as acupressure, acupuncture, EFT (tapping technique), cupping, gua sha, Chinese herbal therapy, Tui Na (manual therapy), dietary counseling and more.
My philosophy of healing:
“Good health can be attained by anyone. When the body, heart and mind are harmonious, disease cannot exist. The body, when given the proper environment, will respond with vitality and optimum health. I believe my function is to help provide patients with that optimal environment so the body can heal itself and your quality of life is improved.”
