My name is Jennifer Chellis Taveras and I've been part of the extended LYT family since early 2001. I am blessed to have such a warm and supportive environment in which to practice acupuncture, herbal medicine, and craniosacral therapy.

Like the rest of the good folks at LYT, I subscribe to the philosophy that I share with my patients. I try very hard to walk my talk. I take good care of myself through diet, colonics, yoga, energy work, supportive and loving relationships, and a strong connection to the Divine. Without working on myself, I would not be able to effectively channel the healing energies that are inherent in all of nature.

My practice of Chinese Medicine is a bit more eclectic than I was taught in school. While I have a firm foundation in the academics of Traditional Chinese Medicine and am skilled in their treatment methods (I am a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York where I earned a Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine with a dual concentration in acupuncture and Chinese herbalism), it has been my desire as a private practitioner to infuse the medicine with more spirit.

The essential ingredient to my practice is the integration of knowledge with intuition. The body has an intelligence that communicates to us through our ailments. There is much to be learned by listening to the body and allowing its wisdom to bubble into consciousness. The mind does not occupy a discrete location but rather it lives in each and every cell of our body. So I combine the information that is elicited in the patient interview with the wisdom that is shared by the body when it is touched. The spirit of our bodies tells no lies. It doesn't forget our history. It contains our truths. It is when we connect with that spirit and communicate with it that true healing takes place.

If you would like me to assist you on your healing journey, please feel free to call me at LYT or email me at
