Aloha! Welcome to Mana Medicine, LLC.  This is the Hawaii-based (part-time) holistic psychiatry and healing retreat practice of Dr. Kayse Budd.  Previously from Tucson, AZ, Dr. Budd started this specialized practice on Kauai in 2012 to share her healing gifts on Kauai, Big Island, and Maui over the coming years.  Dr. Budd travels often (within the United States and beyond) and presently works via phone, internet, and intensive retreat (one-to-one, personalized, multi-hour or multi-day healing experiences) within this Hawaii practice.  Currently, she is living on the mainland, in the San Diego area, where she has a local in-person practice at the renown Chopra Center at the La Costa Resort.  

Dr. Budd is an artist and physician-healer specializing in "concierge-style" holistic medicine, which includes intensive psychotherapy and integrative medicine sessions; art/nature/psychotherapy retreats; intuitive healing rituals; wellness coaching; art therapies (movement/visual/written); astrology readings; health education; and self-development workshops.  Dr. Budd is a fully-trained and board-certified psychiatrist.  As a physician, she seamlessly blends western medicine with many complementary alternatives and healing modalities that she has studied over the past 15 years.  Dr. Budd is a graduate of Duke University, the University of Michigan Medical School, Swedish Family Practice Internship (Seattle, WA), and the University of Arizona Psychiatry Residency.  

In addition to her traditional credentials, Dr. Budd is also a certified yoga instructor with 15 years of experience, a meditation instructor, an herbalist, an astrologer, a writer, and an educator. She is trained in Zero Balancing, CranioSacral Therapy, sound healing, dance therapy, art therapy, and Reiki. As an educator Dr. Budd has taught "mixed-media healing arts" classes for the past seven years (from the community to the university level) and is an adjunct faculty member for the University of Arizona Medical School's Program in Integrative Medicine (directed by Andrew Weil, MD).  She has also trained plus taught at the world-renown Canyon Ranch Spa in Tucson.
