Hannah has always had a passion for art, science, nature, yoga, and healthy lifestyle. Upon deciding what she’d like her career life to look like, the one thing she’s always known is that she’d like to help others. It wasn’t until 2016 when Hannah started working at Tribalance that she was introduced to the power of acupuncture. In no time, she realized that the history, mechanism, and magic of acupuncture embodied all of her passions for art, science, nature, spirituality, and lifestyle awareness that she was craving to integrate into her future career path somehow. In 2018, Hannah took a leap of faith and enrolled at National University of Health Sciences to then graduate top of her class in 2021 with a Masters of Acupuncture. Her education consisted of 2 years of clinical experience where she treated an array of conditions including infertility, mental disorders, digestive disorders, and neurological disorders. Through this journey, she was able to utilize her own adversities and health challenges to help others. Hannah has grown a great passion and interest in the gut/brain connection and believes that the integration of acupuncture and healthy, clean eating has a huge impact on mental and emotional health. She also has an interest in women’s health and wants to empower women by helping them restore balance physiologically, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
“In 2016, not only did I lose my sister to breast cancer, I also learned that I carry the BRCA1 gene mutation, which puts me at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. Between the loss of my sister and my own life altering reality, I grew completely dedicated to a healthy lifestyle not only to maintain my health, but to honor the life of my sister who couldn’t do the same. Becoming a practitioner of acupuncture has given me a platform to channel that experience in order to help others. I consider Chinese Medicine to be my first language and my passion will be seen as extremely evident… My goal is to not only treat my patients, but to educate them through a TCM lens that they can understand to further assist them through their healing. Awareness is the most powerful tool we can offer.” – Hannah Rodheim, LAc.

“I just wanted to start off by saying, I will never go anywhere else for my acupuncture! When I first came to see Cherlyn, I was not all warm and fuzzy about being needled. I cannot believe how far we have come together. I started to see her due to tinnitus, my ears rang to the point I didn’t want to live anymore! I also have very high anxiety. We started working together on my issues 3 years ago, this February. I started off seeing her every week for about the first year and a half. And it worked, I could finally be in a room and not hear any ringing unless I listened for it! I’m not saying it’s gone all the way, I do have times where it is there, but so low. Also, my anxiety is doing so much better. I do have to say I did miss almost 2 months due to the holidays and I COULD NOT wait to see her again. Cherlyn saved me, and let’s just say I will never wait 2 months ever again. If anything, it is just an amazing feeling to have your mind, body and soul balanced. Thank you my sweet Cherlyn! Namaste”
