Eleyah Knight, L.Ac. (Licensed Acupuncturist)
MTCM (Masters of Traditional Chinese Medicine)
Eleyah has a strong sense of purpose and willpower in revolutionizing healthcare and the health and environmental rights of all beings, especially children.
Every patient is seen as a family member in her eyes and is given the attention and care that works best for them. She has a dedicated approach of meeting patients where they are at with their development and needs in order fulfill their own specific way of being as effectively as she possibly can.
Eleyah has experience working in various clinics in Ashland and Santa Cruz, where she treated a variety of conditions ranging from sports injuries to digestive discomforts and chronic diseases that were not alleviated by mainstream pharma-based practices.
She began her healing path while pregnant with her first child, Isen, who motivated her to be as natural with her parenting as possible. While pregnant with her second, Maitreya, she felt called to take the birth into her own hands, literally, and dedicated herself to being her own midwife. This empowering experience gave her a whole new perspective on the deepest, holistically ingrained, self-directed medicine accessible.
She completed 5 years of graduate school with a Master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine, while raising Isen and Maitreya on her own. Taking several extra courses and internships in pediatrics, mental health, and community-oriented medicine helped her develop an experienced-based, humbling approach to taking care of all who have come to her for support. Her most gratifying experiences with patients have involved pain relief, emotional balance, and pediatric conditions.
Ashland, Oregon has become the home-base for Eleyah and her Knight tribe. Being blessed with the ownership of the Siskiyou Clinic has expanded her opportunity to bring her vision of safe, accessible, self-empowering, nature-based medicine to life. With a convenient location near teens and young adults at Ashland High School and Southern Oregon University, she is honored to be in a position to serve their generation with guidance for life-long healing and self-care.
