Rosanna Marshall, MAcOM, LAc, is originally from Nevada and California and grew up with a mother who used herbs and a healthy diet as much as possible to keep her family well. From an early age, Rosanna was interested in the healing power of nature and plants. She ended up finding herself drawn to meditation, yoga and Eastern healing traditions instead of a Western medical education after receiving her degree in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1998.

In 2009, she received her Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in Washington state, studying alongside Lyle Harvey. After graduation, she traveled to Nepal where she worked as a volunteer in a busy medical clinic in the Tibetan neighborhood of Kathmandu. There she treated over 500 patients in 3 months and witnessed the incredible healing power of this simple, yet profound medical system. She has been in private practice in Seattle for the last 8 years and just recently moved to Nashville. She has a special interest in women’s health, mental health and chronic pain, but has experience treating all ages of people and all types of conditions. She uses acupuncture, herbs, and moxa, as well as Tuina and other therapeutic massage techniques.
