While mostly practicing at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, Chinese Medicine practitioner Kelly Clady-Giramma, L.Ac., also works out of BAC twice a month. Kelly completed her 5 yr. Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco and graduated in 2004. She then moved immediately with her husband to Suzhou and Shanghai, China where she resided and worked at several hospitals as well as in private practice for nearly 3 yrs. Though she enjoys treating a little of everything, Kelly's specialties include Internal Medicine, fertility & gynecology, dermatology, neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases, weight loss, Chinese herbal medicine, and Therapeutic Qigong.
Kelly fell into Chinese medicine from an obsession with Chinese language and culture which began during her undergraduate days at Whitman College (in Eastern Washington State) where she minored in Chinese Studies. She has studied extensively with Dr. Nan Lu a well-known New York based Chinese medicine expert and qigong master. She teaches his Dragon's Way Stress and Weight Management as well as Qigong for Breast Health classes.
What inspires Kelly about being a Chinese Medicine practitioner is the satisfaction of helping others find more balance and implement small changes so that they can improve the quality of their own physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Kelly likes seeing her New York and Massachusetts patients commit to improving their health because it inspires her to constantly strive toward health and balance in her own life.
Kelly enjoys hiking, biking, drinking excellent green tea, playing chess with her son, writing, and escaping regularly to Manhattan to work, walk the High Line, dine, and visit museums. Kelly has also studied karate, muy thai, tai chi and kung fu and has had numerous articles published in both in the U.S. and China.
