Sol was introduced to acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as a child, receiving treatment with their mother and grandmother. "As I grew older, I wanted to support my friends and community, primarily with herbal medicine. As I deepened my knowledge of herbs, I decided that Acupuncture and Chinese Herbalism were the perfect fit to learn not only how to support internal medicine disorders but also structural imbalances."
After earning their bachelor's in Fine Arts Degree from the University of Washington in Art History and Digital Art And Experimental Media, Sol earned their Master's in Acupuncture from Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and their Doctorate from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine.
Sol enjoys working with patients "who are actively seeking to deepen their relationship with their body and how they interact with their surroundings. Nothing is too big or too small to work through. Specifically, Sol says that they "love working with fertility, pain, children, mental health concerns, peripartum care and beyond, post-gender-affirming surgery care, and improving quality of life."
With several modalities to choose from, along with TCM, Sol uses a gentle, non-insertive acupuncture technique for sensitive and pediatric patients that includes the use of teishins (a silver tool used to stimulate acupuncture points) and the Shudo-Style Super Rotation Technique.
Before Olo Acupuncture, Sol worked in various practices in and around Savanah, Georgia, as well as New York City. Historically, they have worked supporting fertility and family planning, pain, PTSD, and nervous system concerns, sex workers, people in underserved communities, and the LGBTQIA+ community.
A speaker of English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish, outside of work, Sol enjoys taking their dogs for walks, good conversations, creative food, dancing, travel, and art.
