Episode details

Can acupuncture help you love yourself more fully? For Dr. Natalie Kilheeney, the answer is a resounding yes.

Dr. Natalie Kilheeney radiates positivity. She’s an acupuncturist and qigong instructor, and the owner of Beyond Zen Studio, and multidisciplinary clinic in Granger, Indiana. When I asked her to share some of the keys to her success as a business owner, I ended up with a huge dose of inspiration on awareness, acceptance, mindset and self-love.

In this episode, we discuss:

  1. Her multidisciplinary approach to treatment, and how it benefits patients far beyond their physical health

  2. Her keys to success as a business owner (which turn out to be great life advice too)—including being a heart-driven leader, empowering her team, remembering her mission and purpose, and having a clear mind and a core sense of self

  3. How to cultivate a healthy mindset and why it’s so important

  4. How to develop self-care practices to bring more self-love into your life

Dr. Natalie’s advice can benefit anyone who wants to cultivate more awareness, authenticity and purpose in their life. But she didn’t always live in such a heart-centered way. Towards the end of the interview, Dr. Natalie shares more of her own story, and why she credits acupuncture and qigong with changing her life, and starting her on the path to self-love and true healing.

There are so many gems of wisdom in this episode. I hope you find one that speaks to you.

Love and gratitude,

Your Acupuncturist

P.S. One correction - in my intro I say that Dr. Natalie is the founder and owner of Beyond Zen Studio. It was actually started by her friend and yoga instructor Bridgette. When Bridgette relocated, Dr. Natalie merged her own acupuncture practice with Beyond Zen, and is now the owner and CEO.
