Meet the Doctor

Kara Lolley

Dr. Kara Lolley

Dr. Lolley trained at Bastyr University, the premier school of science-based naturopathic medicine, completing a doctorate program that integrates contemporary western medicine with the best in natural therapeutics.

At the Taoist Institute of Education and Acupuncture in Colorado, she studied Classical Five Element Acupuncture, learning directly from JR Worsley and his daughter Hilary Skellon. She considers it a great gift to have learned this ancient style in the oral tradition in which it has always been taught.

It was Dr. Lolley’s love of the wilderness and native plants that first attracted her to herbal medicine. From there, her innate desire to help others drew her deeper into the world of natural medicine. The relationship of our personal health to the health of our environment and our communities continues to be a central focus of her work.
