Kim Peirano, DACM, LAc, CHT

From an early age, my fascination with the depths of the psyche, a curiosity about who I am and why I am here, and the nature of reality and the universe has shaped my personal growth journey. Growing up I always felt some sort of separateness or otherness, like I didn’t belong and no one could fully understand or truly see me for who I really was. It led me down a path of unconsciously created problems that would eventually teach me who I was and how to hold that truth no matter what kind of situation I was in. It took a lot of work, struggle, pain, trauma and commitment to eventually find a place where I have been able to stand in my truth, regardless of how terrifying it still is sometimes. 

Throughout my life, my career interests have undergone constant flux and metamorphosis, and I have come to appreciate this fluidity as a virtue. I began my collegiate journey interested in business, then graduated with an Art degree, worked in the insurance world briefly before discovering a love for yoga and eventually finding my way to acupuncture school. I graduated from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley in 2010, became a Licensed Acupuncturist and opened a private practice; Lion’s Heart Acupuncture & Wellness. In 2018 I received a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Health Sciences. In my relentless quest for knowledge, I sought further professional development by successfully completing a Certified Nutritionist program, a Beyond Quantum Healing program specializing in past life hypnosis, and a comprehensive year-long training in Jungian Depth Psychology Coaching through The Creative Mind Method and becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist specializing in medical hypnosis. Moreover, since 2013, I have devoted myself to rigorous weekly training in meditation, quantum healing, and timeline healing techniques, becoming a proficient meditation instructor and accomplished energetic healer. 

Drawn to the realm of coaching by the natural evolution of my acupuncture practice and propelled by my profound intrigue with consciousness and its intricate interplay in the manifestation— or lack thereof—of our lives, I gravitated towards this profession. My in-person acupuncture practice has honed my expertise in delivering mental and emotional healthcare, offering support during pivotal life transitions, and addressing the physiological ramifications stemming from such transformations, including pain, illness, and even terminal diagnoses. These thematic elements have seamlessly woven themselves into the fabric of my coaching practice. In addition to seeing patients in person for acupuncture at Lion’s Heart Wellness and online coaching I am also a volunteer for the Living / Dying Project providing End of Life Spiritual Counseling, the Found and Director of The Integrative Healing Institute and a Board Member of the professional association CSOMA.

As a coach I think of myself as a reflective mirror for what it is you’re ready and willing to see and hear. My sessions transcend rigid protocols and prescribed tasks; instead, they are bespoke experiences tailored specifically to your unique needs and current challenges. One day, our session may encompass profound introspection and confrontational work, while on another day, it may resemble a heartfelt conversation with a cherished confidant. I leave myself open to adjust as needed and truly show up for you in the way your spirit and heart craves. Drawing upon my decades of intuitive and meditation training, coupled with the profound insights gained from treating countless patients, I foster an environment of safety and ease within our sessions, empowering you to courageously traverse the depths of your unconscious mind, fortified by the unwavering support I provide. I want my clients to feel held and supported and also simultaneously challenged to grow and move past their blocks and limiting beliefs and patterns. Although this process may evoke feelings of fear and difficulty, with a grounded, present, and experienced coach by your side, remarkable transformations and blossoming growth can unfold.

I consider it a profound honor that my clients choose to embark on this transformative journey with me. Each day, I am humbled by the opportunity to contribute to the personal and professional development of numerous individuals in such a meaningful way. The ability to serve as a catalyst for their growth is a privilege that continually inspires and motivates me.

I invite you to embark on a collaborative journey with me—one that illuminates the path to self-discovery, empowerment, and holistic well-being. Together, we will navigate the intricate tapestry of your consciousness, unravel the layers that veil your true essence, and embrace the transformative power that lies within. With deep reverence for the human spirit and an unwavering commitment to your growth, I am here to guide, support, and champion you every step of the way.
