Joy Pattee, LAc, DiplAc

Joy is one of only two Classical Five Element Acupuncturists on the big island of Hawaii. She received most of her training in Los Angeles, CA from Samra University of Oriental Medicine and finished her clinical studies in Maui at the Hawaii College of Traditional Oriental Medicine. She recently studied under J.R. and Judy Worsley and Professor Neil Gumenick to complete an esteemed program certifying her in Classical Five Element Acupuncture.

Joy holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and is a Diplomate of Acupuncture recognized at the National level.  Her choice to specialize her practice to include Classical Five Element Acupuncture enables her to reach her patients on a level that surpasses the ability to relieve physical pain or ailments. She chose to take her practice to a whole new level of reaching the person at their core and helping them reclaim their lives in order to start to enjoying life again.

Joy loves living on the big island where she surfs, dives, is a member of a local halau and enjoys anything to do with the water and Hawaii.
