About Your Practitioner
Catherine Lumenello is a Classical Chinese Medicine practitioner, Qigong and Feng Shui Master that specializes in Emotional Stress, Trauma and PTSD recovery, with over 15 years of clinical experience and LGBTQ+ community involvement. As a "knotty disease" expert, Catherine untangles complex illnesses to bring the whole system back to balance, adeptly treating common ailments such as allergies, auto-immune diseases, digestive problems, chronic tension areas, and gynecological health.
Catherine began her journey into Daoist Philosophy, the beauty of Classical Chinese Medicine, and the practice of Universal LOVE by studying Qigong under the Daoist Priest Chang-Shin Jih for over two years. A Feng Shui and Martial Arts Master, Jih authorized Catherine to practice Feng Shui before she moved to Arizona to deepen her studies in Acupuncture, Medical Qigong, Tuina, and Yoga.
In Arizona, Catherine volunteered her skills for Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation's Wellness Clinics (Client Services Award, 2010). On the academic side, Catherine has lectured nationwide, lead accredited programs in both Medical Qigong and Gynecology, and is the author of the first clinical handbook addressing Gender and Sexuality issues from a Chinese Medicine perspective.
Catherine was born and raised in New England, and is happily settled in rural Vermont. Outside the office she is a fantastic cook, a trained artist and vocalist, an amateur gardener, and a really amazing Mom.
