- Katie Kuhn, RAc, MSAOM "I believe acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine may be of benefit to the transgender community. Acupuncture looks at physical and mental health as inseparable. Although I don't do anything specific for hormones, acupuncture is about creating a balance. It can address both physical complaints as well as emotional issues. My office is a safe, nonjudgmental space for all patients."
