INTRODUCING......(drumroll please) our new acupunk - RACHEL!

We are pleased to announce that we have a wonderful, new acupuncturist joining Kindred's team. Rachel Martinez will be covering two of Korben’s shifts while he is away between July 19th and July 25th. She will have her own, additional shifts to be announced starting in August, meaning that we”ll be open more hours and hopefully have more available times for your treatments each week. Go to the online scheduler to see when treatments are available and you’ll also be able to see which practitioner is on for that shift.


Rachel Martinez graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture. She is trained in Chinese, Japanese and Orthopedic styles of acupuncture and is also a nationally certified Diplomate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Before becoming an acupuncturist, Rachel graduated from RISD in 1994 with a Bachelor’s in
Fine Arts Degree in Painting. She later became a leasing agent and property manager, and
oversaw the rebirth of two apartment buildings in Providence.

Rachel is drawn to acupuncture through her Aikido and Zen training. She is a first degree black
belt in Aikido, a traditional Japanese martial art, and has been training for 16 years. Rachel first
experienced the benefits of acupuncture when she received treatments for her aches and pains
she felt from training and later acupuncture kept her healthy during her two pregnancies. She
loves how acupuncture is a holistic system that seeks to balance all aspects of the patient’s health.

Rachel currently lives in Cranston with her husband, two children and pup. We are delighted to welcome her!
