Dr. Renee McSwain has worked as a producer/director in the entertainment and healthcare industry for over 15 years. Dr. McSwain's experience spans from coast to coast taking up residence in both Los Angeles, CA and Washington, DC allowing her to work bicoastal. Dr. McSwain worked for several public relations/consulting firms spanning from Washington, DC to Los Angeles, CA. She helped manage outreach efforts on behalf of clients including associations, federal agencies, and independent filmmakers. Through her experience in communicating healthcare messages to the public for various federal government agencies, she realized the disparity in the amount of complementary healing therapies being communicated to the public.

Upon having her first child, Dr. McSwain suffered from unbearable neck pain that disabled her from caring for her young infant. She began to seek acupuncture treatment. Almost overnight, her pain diminished and the experience of healing left an everlasting impression on her. Her life completely changed and the course of her journey transitioned from communicating about healthcare to being an instrument for healing. Dr. McSwain's current clinical practice spans from helping her patients recover and heal from physical/psycho-emotional trauma to spiritual enhancement. She fully believes in supporting her clients on a body, mind, spirit level. Dr. McSwain holds a doctorate degree in Oriental Medicine from Maryland University of Integrative Health based in Laurel, MD.
