Tai Kira, Acupuncture

A Holistic Healing Professional

Taissa (Tai) KiraM.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac.

Licensed Acupuncturist

Founder of Zen Place Wellness, LLC.

The mission at Zen Place Wellness is to provide an integrated and holistic approach to healing.

Rather than just trying to fix problems, the goal is to enrich patients’ lives

by teaching them how to gently shift behavior and habits to help unlock their healing potential.


Tai considers each patient's unique story and symptoms in order to find the root cause of the issues

and designs a series of treatments that will encourage the body to heal itself.


The hope is to fill the gap in the world of modern medicine practice that incorporates whole food nutrition, lifestyle, bodywork and psycho-emotional balance to better regulate our bodies' innate healing abilities.

Tai's treatments focus on:

pain relief

stress, anxiety, depression


digestive issues

women's health

 psycho-somatic disorders


weight management


Her success stems from the combination of therapies acquired over 20 years of experience in competitive sports, massage, myofascial release, Reiki, acupuncture, iridology, Esogetic Colorpuncture and Asian medicine. 

Tai experienced the power of integrated Asian medicine after living and working abroad in Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore for over 14 years.

Now she lives in Raleigh, with her husband  and two pups, whilst their boys are scattered around the globe at universities.
