Further, she uses acupuncture to establish emotional and physical balance and to assist healing of the mind, body, and spirit.

When Dr. Larivee isn’t helping patients at Kwan-Yin Healing Arts Center, she can be found knee-deep in the outdoors; mountain biking, skiing, kite boarding or doing yoga. She loves spending time with her family and her two energetic and adorable young boys. Dr. Larivee has backpacked in over 30 countries throughout the world and there’s a good chance she’s already planning her next adventure.
