Hadea Tift MSA, L.Eamp

Owner, Licensed & Board Certified Acupuncturist, Chief Creator

I was born here in Mount Vernon and grew up in Skagit and Whatcom County.  By the time I was 21 I knew that my work was to help people thrive and enjoy life. I chose to attend Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA in 2005. In 2008 I graduated with my Bachelors & Masters of Science in Acupuncture.  In 2009 I started my acupuncture practice and fell in love with the Community Acupuncture model. I am so appreciative of all that I get to do as a small business owner and healer. I spend a lot of my time adventuring, writing, travelling. I live full time in an RV so travel is a big part of my life. I also help raise 3 beautiful children that keep my priorities straight; play until you are ready to rest, and rest until you are ready to play! More than anything I enjoy being  joyful, easy, and committed to helping others find joy, ease and well-being in their life.

Matthew Stuckey L.Eamp

Matthew Stuckey learned his trade in Chinese Medicine at World Medicine Institute in Honolulu after his community acupuncturist highly recommended him the school for its focus on Qigong practice and Taoism. Having grown up in the mountains that he loves of Northern Arizona, he didn’t move to Hawaii for the beaches though he generally fails to convince people of that.
After graduation, he worked providing detox and addiction treatments in a drug and alcohol abuse clinic, became owner and acupuncturist of Honolulu Community Acupuncture and a clinical supervisor for acupuncture student interns at his school’s clinic.
He now calls the Pacific Northwest home and plans to set his roots here, back in the mountains. When he’s not holding acupuncture needles, he can generally be found holding his bike handles, garden hoe, a good book or his backpack straps.
