About Shindai 神代

Shindai is a Japanese word that refers to awareness of our mind, body, and spirit and the preciousness of life. It encompasses consideration, empathy, respect, honor, nurturing, and spirit, all of which are needed for healing. In the Japanese tradition, cranes stand for good fortune, longevity, and wisdom.

Highly Educated & Experienced

My experience includes extensive education and training in both Western and Eastern Medicine. My path began as a critical care nurse, and then with a Master’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania, I became a nurse practitioner specializing in trauma, neurosurgery, neurology, oncology, and bone marrow transplants.

My own chronic migraine headaches led me to seek alternative treatments unavailable through Western Medicine. Ultimately I also discovered a new career path. I earned an additional Master’s Degree from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and did further studies in Ayurvedic medicine at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA.


Many people who come to me for acupuncture treatment are in pain and very anxious about their health. To help them, in addition to providing appropriate health wellness and medicine treatment, I spend a  great deal of time listening to my patients, explaining the treatments and encouraging them to ask questions. I also help them navigate a complex and bewildering modern health care system. As a result of my personalized approach, my patients experience high levels of recovery from illness and low levels of recurring disease. 

For over 27 years, 

Kimberly has been actively healing people using both Western and Eastern medicine modalities.
