We’re talking to the team behind ORA space – a next level acupuncture experience that brings the healing benefits of the ancient modality together with a modern, luxe, and holistic approach to wellness. The Founder Kim Ross shares her touching personal story of how acupuncture provided great relief to her as she struggled with the symptoms of the type 1 diabetes she has since age 11 and other health issues throughout the years.

When Kim went on to study at Harvard Business School, her busy schedule prevented her from regularly working with her acupuncturist, Gabriel Sher. She really felt the impact of its absence as issues began to return, and recognized again how powerful acupuncture was for her health. This was the catalyst for Kim founding ORA space where Gabriel Sher is now the Head of Acupuncture. We talk to both of them today on everything you ever wanted to know about acupuncture, eastern medicine, and this unique experience ORA has created.
