Our mission at Tend is to allow every patient the time to express and identify their main health concerns.  We believe that identifying root causes and looking at the whole dynamic of a person's symptoms, lifestyle, diet, emotions, and environment is fundamental in creating long-lasting support, relief, and positive change. Each treatment is carefully curated and individually designed to suit the patient's needs and to address the optimum level of treatment and care. For many, acupuncture can be an incredibly relaxing experience while resting in a safe and serene environment which elicits a deeper capacity to promote healing. In a world where most healthcare settings have lost their personal touch and lack individualized care, we at Tend, strive to keep the heart of healing and wellbeing alive and available.



Kim Clements-Duffy,


Kim first and foremost believes in patient-centered care, individualized treatment, and space for deep listening. Kim received her Master of Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrated Health (MUIH) in 2006. She has since maintained a private practice treating a variety of conditions. She complements her acupuncture training with the use of electro-acupuncture, Tui Na,  nutritional therapy, as well as facial rejuvenation acupuncture. Kim is also certified in the safe application of Gua Sha and cupping, trained directly with Dr. Ayra Neilsen, considered the Western authority on the traditional East Asian technique. 


She enjoys treating all types of conditions including women's health, pre and post-pregnancy, musculoskeletal pain, anxiety and depression, gastrointestinal issues, stress, and trauma-related symptomatology, as well as neurological symptoms including headaches/migraines, and PTSD, Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia presentations. She has a special place in her heart for supporting those who are surviving, thriving, and fighting a cancer diagnosis and for those loved ones who are closely affected by a cancer journey.  She is especially interested in emotional health and its intersection with physical well-being and pain. She believes it is imperative for patients to feel safe, seen, and respected during times when navigating through challenging health conditions.


Kim loves to be outdoors. She enjoys her personal quiet time with yoga and meditation practices, along with much interest in writing and movement therapy, dance, music, design, culture, art, and fashion. Kim has been a yoga instructor for over 20 years and currently maintains intensive training in the method of Instinctive Meditation, with master teachers Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine. She is certified to lead instruction in private and group settings.  She is a fun wife and a tired mom of two boys. Her most important job is making sure she is raising kind, confident, and loved little humans who will offer their positive gifts to the world.
