Originally from North Carolina, Vaughan attended the NC School of Science and Mathematics, and then graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wake Forest University with a BS in Biology.  This began her dedicated research and study of anatomy, which is still an ongoing and vital aspect in her approach and treatment program today.  Shortly after graduating, she was licensed to practice Massage Therapy,  focusing on Trigger Point, Myofascial release, Deep Tissue and Sports techniques.  Her career includes residency as a Senior Massage Therapist and Yoga instructor at the notable Duke University Integrative Medicine Clinic & Diet and Rehabilitation Center for 3 years.  As one of the professionals there, she worked with doctors to treat a wide range of patients including those suffering from arthritis, heart disease, cancer, obesity, eating disorders, sports related injuries, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and more.

Relocating to New York in 2003, after employing massage therapy for years, she was drawn to acupuncture because of its ability to release long standing trigger points that had resisted stretching and manual release.  Vaughan went on to study at the Tri-State Acupuncture School, graduating and apprenticing under the founder of the college, Dr. Mark Seem.   Following Dr. Seem closely, learning from a master renowned for his ability to break through chronic pain and psycho-physical patterns in his patients, her belief in the technique was confirmed.  Vaughan’s training is primarily in Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) and trigger point release complemented by Japanese and traditional Chinese techniques.  

Yoga has been an integrative part of her life and healing philosophy.  In 1996, Rose began practicing Yoga asana and meditation which led her to complete two 200hr Yoga teacher trainings including the Dharma Mittra teacher training and other trainings with David Swensen, and Tim Miller.  Since 2003 she has spent over a thousand of hours practicing directly with master teacher Dharma Mittra of NYC.  She has also studied in depth Tantra and Bhakti Yoga with Bhagavan Das and others of that lineage.

For the past 15 years, she has devoted herself to rectifying the physical and emotional ailments plaguing New Yorkers.  Utilizing her athletic background, devotion to yoga, acute intuition and scientific research on anatomy, diet and herbs, she has developed a revolutionary way to repair and rejuvenate the spirit and body.  Her faith in the body’s incredible ability to transform through patience, touch, breath, diet, herbs and movement has enabled her to treat and heal thousands of patients.
