The Bird Physician

Laura C Stelmok, BA, BAc., MAc., Dipl. Ac.(NCCAOM)
Founder and Academic Dean of The Virtue of HeavenEarth

BA (Religion and German) from Bowdoin College '83 and a MA in Acupuncture from the Worsley Institute of Classical Acupuncture (FL) & The College of Traditional Acupuncture (UK) '92.

Laura studied with JR/JB Worsley until 2004. She also apprenticed with Niki Bilton, Master Acupuncturist, from 1992-2006. Fueled by urgency to find cause and treatment for illness in her patients, this apprenticeship pointed her upstream, back and in to the ancient alchemical protocols of Taoist Medicine. She has been in private clinical practice since 1992 and has taught post-graduate 5 Element Theory and Clinical Supervision groups since 2005.

In 2012 The Unseen Hand: Medicine from Antiquity, a 501(c)3 non-profit school was formed and Laura began teaching full time. With her husband Noah, they built a center for the school in Maine to house the teachings of this esoteric tradition. As a place of learning and retreat, it is refuge for those in need of such care. The teachings are being collected in audio and video recordings as well as through Laura’s writing. For more information about the work of The Unseen Hand please visit our website. The Virtue of HeavenEarth is an autonomous institute within the larger school.
