KATI JOHNS, BSN, M.Ac., L.Ac.
Kati Johns has been working in medicine for over 14 years, having previously worked as a RN before transitioning into acupuncture. As a nurse, she worked in pediatrics, trauma, intensive care and geriatrics. After years in the Western Medical field, she decided to move her career into Eastern Medicine. This change occurred after witnessing both the power and limitations of Western Medicine and from wanting to be a part of bridging the gap in our healthcare system.
Kati is passionate about helping others heal. She provides services to all ages and to a variety of conditions.
Kati's priority is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where people will be truly heard. Kati has a passion for working with youth, trauma and general medicine. This includes (but is not limited to) blood pressure or thyroid issues, neurological conditions, women's health and fertility, endocrine disorders, autoimmune disorders and spiritual and emotional challenges. She believes in treating at the root cause and basing treatments on the specific needs of the individual. She is grateful to have found acupuncture, both as a career and a patient.
Her other passions include spending time with her son, riding and working with horses, art, hiking, walking the dogs and being at the beach. Nature is an integrative part of this medicine and it is important for her to maintain that connection with it.

pass the wisdom of healing along to others.

TYME GIGLIOTTI, D.Ac., L.Ac.
Tyme has been fascinated with medicine and healing ever since he was a kid when he came across his mom’s old Pathology For Nurses and Anatomy and Physiology books. As an adult, after searching for relief from his own chronic neck pain and insomnia, he finally discovered the profound physical and mental level healing he was looking for in acupuncture with the late Sifu Kenny Gong in New York City. Amazed, he dropped everything and enrolled in school the next year. Since then his passion has been helping others experience freedom from physical and emotional pain as well as reclaim their own health and wellbeing. Specializing in sports acupuncture and orthopedics, Tyme is dedicated to helping you experience optimal performance in all aspects of your life, both on and off the field.
During his career of over 20 years he has served as Chairman of the Maryland State Acupuncture Board, Secretary of the Maryland Acupuncture Society and presented at various national and international conferences on the benefits of traditional medicine. One of Tyme’s greatest passions is teaching the beauty and effectiveness of this medicine at the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia). Over the years he has served as Chair of several departments as well as the Acupuncture Clinic Director.
Currently he is an Assistant Professor and Doctor of Acupuncture.

at their clinic, Heartspace Acupuncture.
