Minka Robinson Stevens
Family Herbalist, Acupuncturist, Alchemist and Mother in Santa Barbara, CA
Growing up in the foothills of Santa Barbara the women in my family all had a passion for plants. My grandmother taught botany and led edible and medicinal native plants walks for 35 years. At home my mother cultivated a passion for botany, gardening, cooking, nutrition and herbal medicine which is what ultimately led me to Chinese Medicine. Through my own journey as a healer, a woman and a mother I have spent most of my time studying and working in Women’s Health, Fertility, Pregnancy, Postpartum Wellness, Integrative Pediatrics, Inflammatory Diseases and Dermatology. I also ran a natural skin care company for 10 years and have since received my Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medical Dermatology. I have been blessed to study extensively with world renown expert Mazin Al-Khafaji, and am a member of the International TCM Dermatology Association, holding a seat on the Advisory Board of the ITCMDA. I currently see patients both online via Telemedicine and at Points of Health, in Santa Barbara where I maintain a full Chinese Herbal Pharmacy. My mission is to help restore balance, health and harmony allowing our true beauty and vitality to radiate from the inside out.
