Acupuncture for Health

It’s About to Get “Sticky”

Next Step Enterprises celebrates our favorite acupuncturist and client, Izumi “Zoe” Schutz, owner of Morning Quail Acupuncture.

What Does She Do?

Zoe is our favorite acupuncturist because 1) She is highly skilled and gets amazing results, and 2) Her office is in the Austin Holistic Health Building (300 Beardsley Lane Bldg E) where we office and it is easy to receive regular treatment.  3) She gives my dog Gigi, treats when I bring her to the office. 

Zoe regularly treats the Next Step Enterprises team for tennis elbow, various mountain biking injuries, Austin allergies, and energy (ki) balancing…especially during tax season. 

I Thought Acupuncture Was A Chinese Thing?

Zoe was born in northern Japan and has always had a fascination with energy (Ki)healing, and Eastern cultures. She practiced Kendo (modern Japanese martial art of sword-fighting based on traditional Japanese swordsmanship, or kenjutsu), Sado (Japanese tea ceremony) and Ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement) in her teens and 20’s.

She received a masters degree in Oriental Medicine from the Academy of Oriental Medicine in 2003. From 2003 to 2009 she served as solo apprentice to Dr. Robert Marion, who was a pioneer of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the United States.

She practices both Japanese and Chinese Acupuncture, as well as being certified in Facial Rejuvenation Treatment.
