About Us

Heavenly Pivot Acupuncture is a licensed Acupuncture practice with Naya Cheung Rice, L.Ac. and Zachary Rice, L.Ac.

The name “Heavenly Pivot Acupuncture” was chosen to reflect a space of growth, and a pivotal point in our being to transform and move closer to our destiny.  The name is inspired by an actual acupuncture point called, “Heavenly Pivot” also known as ST-25 on the Stomach Meridian.  The spirit of this point is described by Lonny Jarrett,

     “Heavenly Pivot empowers grace through transitions by strengthening our balanced relationship to center.  It empowers the virtue of being able to move dynamically in any direction, and plays an important role in cultivation of primordial Qi as a foundation resource in health and healing.”

This is the spirit of the space which Heavenly Pivot Acupuncture wishes to hold.

Naya and Zach finished a year of traveling through Asia, volunteering and deepening their understanding of their medical practices and meditation.  They are now working on the island of Maui, in the state of Hawai’i. Their clinic space is located in Kihei.
