E komo mai!

My name is Cathrine Wingate.  I am a licensed Acupuncturist, an Herbalist and teacher of meditation and Qigong.   My practice is located in beautiful Hilo, Hawaii, in a wonderful historic home built in 1936.  I also am the proud owner of East Hawaii Wellness Center, a collaborative venture where you may find some of the finest holistic healthcare practitioners in all of East Hawaii.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) works so well for multitudes of people, with many different kinds of problems.  Why?

First, this kind of healing medicine treats the whole body, not just a list of signs and symptoms.  You are unique, as are your set of circumstances.  I take this into consideration, treating you in the moment – thus your treatment may be different each time you come in for a visit.

Second, I do not just treat your symptomology, I look to the cause of your dis-ease.  It is often said that the success of Oriental medicine is because we treat the root and the branch.  If you have back pain, certainly that is addressed.  But along with that, the body, mind and spirit must be balanced to prevent that pain from reoccurring.

No matter what your complaint, Acupuncture can help your healing process!

I love what I do.  I am so incredibly happy and honored to be a part of this amazing modality and there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing that with my patients and students.
