Meet Dr. Kayla Moberg - Acupuncturist & Herbalist

The Healing Hearth was born from an innate, life-long interest in holistic healing. This natural passion led Kayla to various different trainings in aromatherapy, massage, reiki, and birth and postpartum doula work before discovering the school of her dreams.

Kayla began her studies in western herbal medicine at Pacific Rim College where she obtained a Diploma of Phytotherapy. The Diploma of Phytotherapy is a 3-year program that explores the medicinal uses of North American and European herbs and is considered the most comprehensive program of western herbal medicine available in either Canada or the United States. It consists of both traditional knowledge and modern day, scientific-based knowledge.

While at Pacific Rim College, Kayla quickly and passionately fell in love with the ancient system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the profound effects it can have on the physical, mental, emotional and spirit levels. This inspired her to continue her studies and she went on to obtain a Diploma of Acupuncture, a Diploma of Chinese Herbal Medicine and completed her studies as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is now a faculty member at Pacific Rim College where she teaches classes in gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics, and advanced herbal formulating, along with supervising acupuncture clinics and herbal medicine clinics. 

A dedicated Yoga practice over the past decade led her to India twice to immerse herself in this ancient spiritual tradition. On her first trip she completed a Yoga teacher training and returned a year later and began teaching Yoga and offering free acupuncture services at a charitable hospital through the ashram she was living at. This was rooted in her dream of making medicine accessible to all and she continues to offer sliding scale options if financial restrictions are a barrier to treatment. 

Kayla's greatest passion is women's health, and her continuing education studies are focused on broadening her knowledge in this area. She is currently studying under Aviva Romm - herbalist, midwife and medical doctor - completing a Women's Herbal Educator program. Along with this, she is enrolled in Jane Lyttleton's course 'The Treatment of Infertility - The Complete Course'. This curriculum covers the approach and specialist knowledge a TCM practitioner requires in order to have a thorough understanding of the basis of infertility from a TCM and western medical understanding.
