Rebecca Shatles received her Masters of Acupuncture from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture (ITEA) in Louisville, Colorado in 2008. She is a Diplomate of Acupuncture as certified by the NCCAOM and licensed in the state of Utah. At ITEA Beck focused on the study of Five Element Acupuncture as taught by the JR Worsley's direct lineage. Beck is also a AOBTA certified therapist in Integrated Nutrition and Asian Healing Arts. She has studied various forms of bodywork since 2002 and maintains a Utah massage therapy license. Beck received her Bachelor of Arts from The University of Vermont in 1994.
Beck's interest in woking with an active population lead her to complete a post graduate apprenticeship in the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of orthopedic injuries and pain. Most recently she dove more deeply into the study of Anusara Yoga completing a 200 hour teacher training. This style of yoga draws on her interest in functional movement, postural assessment and its incorporation into the design of supportive acupuncture treatments. In addition to maintaining her private practice, Beck works as an acupuncturist at the Wellness and Integrative Health Center at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital.
Beck strives to facilitate the highest level of health and well-being in her clients. She works one-on-one and takes a holistic approach to health care incorporating acupuncture, nutrition, cupping, bodywork and lifestyle recommendations. Beck views the practitioner-client relationship as a partnership. Every client is treated as an individual, whose concerns, needs and goals are continually readdressed. Her desire as a practitioner is to facilitate healing and help each individual reach his or her full potential. With over twelve years in practice, Beck finds she has accumulated the wisdom to support clients through life’s challenges, while maintaining a playful spirit.
Beck grew up in New York City, two blocks from the ocean. An avid skier, cyclist and surfer she has spent most of her adult life in the mountains. She has lived in Utah for over 13 years now and loves the unique mix of city, mountains, desert and the wonderful community she has found here.
