As a Healing Arts Practitioner and Clean Beauty Advocate Courtney Helms’ mission is to empower her patients and clients with knowledge so they can take their health and the health of their families and loved ones into their own hands.
She received her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the prestigious Oregon College of Oriental Medicine after completing four years of medical school training in both Eastern and Western medicine philosophy. Prior she graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors in Child Development which led to her career as a Behavior Therapist specializing in early intervention and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Her Healing Arts Practice is mainly focused on holistic health coaching through nutritional and herbal support and the application of jeweled ear seeds. She can also be found advocating for stricter laws and regulation within the beauty industry. Courtney partnered with Beautycounter several years ago in hopes to educate even more people about the importance of reducing environmental toxins to increase overall health and wellness.
Hello! My name is Courtney and I am an East Asian Medical Practitioner and clean beauty advocate. I am a Mama of 2 preschoolers, a boy and a girl 18 months apart to the day, so it’s easy to say I got thrown into motherhood full steam ahead and have not slowed down since. Growing up I was always extremely passionate about working with children with severe special needs which led me to receive my Bachelor’s in Child Development from SFSU and eventually to my work as a Behavior Therapist, specializing in Pervasive Developmental Disorders. After many years and a good dose of burnout I decided to go back to medical school for East Asian Medicine to study Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture. I was looking for a solution where I could support the whole family instead of just pouring into my young patients, the parents were burned out, anxious and emotionally fatigued. I found my answer in my own health care routine of receiving regular acupuncture treatments while I was a therapist. I came to the realization East Asian Medicine could help treat the suffering digestive systems of my patients and ease the nervous systems of the caregivers and parents. I was able to study at the world renowned Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and trained by the top leaders in the field. Now I am passionate about supporting Mothers and Children with this beautiful holistic medicine. You can find me combining beauty with health and wellness, using crystal ear seeds for quick, beautiful medicine on the go that stays with you days after treatment, or helping new families detox and prepare their bodies and homes for bringing into the world the healthiest children they can. I am so excited to bring all my offerings to Four Moons and look forward to connecting with you. www.courtneyhelms.com

1. Ear Seed Treatments
Swarovski crystal ear seed treatments quick, gentle, effective, pretty medicine to go!
The ear is a complete microsystem for the whole body, meaning a practitioner can do a full body diagnosis and treatment from examining the ear.
24K gold plated stainless steel or stainless steel metal pellets apply acupressure to specific points on the ear sending signals to reduce pain, increase emotional wellness and treat internal organ systems. These treatments can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other modalities.
This no needle treatment is great for all ages and sensitivity levels, creating access to ancient east asian medicine for all.
