Stephanie is licensed by the State of California Acupuncture Board to practice Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. She has partnered with Genomix Nutrition and Neurobiologix to provide insightful, comprehensive, and effective nutritional supplement protocols designed by leading neuro immune specialist and auto-immune expert Dr. Kendal Stewart.
Growing up in Germany, with a progressive integration of traditional and modern medicine, Stephanie approaches her treatments to include more than just needles. She values the choices that patients make in their homes (food, emotional well being, exercise). Stephanie moved to the United States to pursue her medical education, and decided to continue to live in the United States when she married her husband, and business partner, Dustin.
Stephanie is currently working on her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in San Francisco at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is furthering her education with an emphasis on Rheumatology, Pain Management and Oncology.

Dustin has a Master of Science in Community Counseling via John Brown University. He completed his Bachelor degree in Philosophy at Biola University. While completing his Masters program he began the foundation to his design business 5ing. He utilizes his education to help communicate and cultivate mutually beneficial relationships with his product and his clients. His passionate love for systems thinking and holistic health and wellness has led him to his current job as a Certified Genomix Nutrition Practitioner at Ouchie. Over the years, he has received incredible benefit from acupuncture, intentional and conscious eating habits, and the incredible efficacy of Neurobiologix supplementation.
Dustin grew up learning from his grandfather, Perry, what it means to work hard, think creatively, and steward land; thus, inspiring his entrepreneurial attitude. Dustin's integrative passion has led the vision and steps toward Ouchie's future holistic health & wellness retreat and 5ing's design center. The planned development will be created with principles learned from Darren Doherty's Regrarians Platform. The Regrarians Platform is based upon the principles of P.A. Yeomans who is attributed to influencing the founders of Permaculture, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Our holistic health and design center will be an exemplary tool for educating others with holistic and regenerative principles and will provide an integrative platform from where Dustin and Stephanie can grow their unique skills in an environment they love—Carmel, CA. They are currently on the look out for the land which will make their plans possible.
Dustin and Stephanie married at their beautiful Arkansas home in 2008. They moved to California in 2009 to allow Stephanie to pursue her Masters degree and to develop 5ing. We believe that how you live your life has the most impact on our quality of life, and we choose to allow food and acupuncture to be our medicine. Ouchie is not just our own avenue of income, but a way to help others live a life with intention and well-being. We are excited to be part of your Health and Wellness Journey!
