Ricardo Molczadzki

Acupuncturist & Herbalist


Available MON, TUES, WED, FRI
Call us for special requests.

Ricardo studied various types of alternative medicine after 2 years of western medical school in Argentina. Eventually, he received a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Biology.

In 1983, Ricardo became a researcher in a university, but after years of western medicine and the world of academics, he recognized that it was removed from his passionate vision for the holistic healing arts. Ricardo then went on a sabbatical retreat in Alaska. “Down to Earth”, finally!

The realness of life in the wild brought Ricardo into a new journey, of inner and outer ecology, through meditation and communion with nature. Life became the teacher, guiding him back to his original vision.

Since 1987, he has been studying Chinese medicine in India, Japan and China, graduating as an acupuncturist and herbalist in Hawaii. Ricardo and Chinta have also completed a post graduate course in Chinese gynecology. Eventually, he received a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Biology.

Each session is an experience guided by the client and energies that work with them to bring balance and harmony. Danae allows this channel of energy to guide and direct each session with the intention to clear anything blocking or restricting the flow of energy.
