Kate Maxey (Currently on maternity leave)   MS・L.Ac.・Qi Gong Therapist

I am Kate Maxey, a California and Nationally Licensed Acupuncturist since 2010. I first came to Joseph at House of Qi as a patient and stayed as a student and now a practitioner. My previous training was in Swedish and Shiatsu massage which I bring to the table in each of my sessions, combined with the “Qi Gong Therapy” House of Qi is known for.

As an avid yogini since 1995, I will invite you to connect with your breath and bridge the gap that keeps us disconnected from our own healing processes. You can also find me at The Root, a midwife collective in Noe Valley, focusing on women’s reproductive health, pregnancy, and fertility. It is an honor to be a part of the House of Qi family and provide unique techniques based on ancient wisdom. Spanish speakers welcome, as long as you speak slowly ; )  Please visit my website for more information:
