Business Manager

Licensed Esthetician 

hannah drier

Hannah is a licensed esthetician with a background in nutrition. Her approach to skincare is deeply rooted in corneotherapy, which means her ultimate goal is to ensure your skin’s barrier (the stratum corneum layer) functions optimally to promote homeostasis. This creates the foundation for stronger treatments to address specific skin concerns. Beyond the surface, she believes in a holistic understanding that our skin’s health is intricately connected to our lifestyle and mental, physical, emotional well-being, so healing the skin is always promoted from the inside out. She is passionate about treating sensitive skin and learning the ways that autoimmune and other chronic conditions manifest in the skin, and the best way to navigate that.
 

In her free time she loves practicing yoga, going golfing with her husband, and spending time with her cat.

lyndsey cordova

Lyndsey Cordova is a licensed Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbalist and is one of the founders of Kōena Integrated Healing. She was born and raised in Longmont, CO.

 

She comes to Acupuncture from the Western biomedical field, having been a surgical assistant for 14 years, where she specialized in facial plastic surgery and ENT/reconstructive surgery. She has thorough training in the anatomy and nerve pathways of the face and was fortunate to also go through advanced training by a top board certified plastic surgeon to perform advanced surgical skills like suturing, tissue dissection, incision making and injections. Her careful hands and eye for symmetry will serve her acupuncture and microchanneling patients well.

 

Although she enjoyed her work in the OR, she missed having the chance to connect with her patients. Then, in 2015 she became very sick, very fast. It took her 4 months and  6 MDs to get a diagnosis. While going through that process, she turned to acupuncture to see if it might offer her some relief. After her first treatment, she slept through the night for the first time in weeks and her symptoms began to resolve.

 

Lyndsey has always had a passion and deep understanding of the mind, body and soul connection. Combining the best of her biomedical training with her knowledge of TCM patterns and treatments, she will provide an integrative, personal experience for all of her patients.

 

"My goal is to make people feel better. That's it. I want them to leave the clinic feeling refreshed and grounded, with their symptoms under control -- ready to take on their busy lives."

 

She earned her Master's degree in Acupuncture from Southwest Acupuncture College and is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Sciences.
