Dr. Atil Narayan, DACM, L.Ac.:
Hi, I’m Atil. My journey into the world of natural medicine began in 1993. It started with an interest in Asian and native American philosophies and evolved into the formal study of traditional Chinese medicine resulting in a Masters degree then ultimately a doctorate. Providing natural pain relief using acupuncture, cupping, far infrared heat, gua sha, salves, and herbs to help my patients obtain mind/body healing is one of the greatest joys of my life. Being able to work with a caring group of people makes it even sweeter.
In my personal life, I love spending time with my wife conversing about virtually everything and relishing the flavors of different kinds of foods. I’m a dad to 2 daughters who I absolutely adore. They have pet goats, chickens, and rabbits. I also enjoy gardening as a source of exercise, learning, and peace.
Dr. Yu-Hua (Yu) Hsieh, Ph.D. L.Ac:
Hello, I’m Yu-Hua. I joined the Natural Wonders Healthcare team on 2/1/2019. I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology with extensive clinical study experience. Before obtaining my Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine license, I was a cancer researcher at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After more than ten years of basic cancer research, I realized that Western Medicine is not the only method of relieving illness, such as chronic pain, insomnia, etc. This drove me to seek more knowledge in the area of acupuncture and herbal medicine. It is important to treat the patient holistically and to provide them with a sense of peace, balance, and harmony.
In my personal life, I love to study historical culture, especially Chinese Archaeology. I believe there is wisdom that can be acquired from the past. In addition, l like cooking and painting.
Hi, I’m Yvonne and I have been part of the Natural Wonders Healthcare family since 2016. I have been involved in natural medicine my whole adult life. In the past, I’ve managed front and back offices for busy, heart-centered, chiropractic doctors. I took some time off to raise my son and daughter. When they got older, I was able to return to an industry I’m passionate about. Natural Wonders Healthcare was a perfect fit for me. It is thrilling to be part of such a dedicated team. Every day we are committed to improving our patients’ health so they can live a better life.
In my personal life, I enjoy dabbling with aromatherapy, tending to my plumeria collection (I have over 100 plants!), and being someone who tries to create memorable experiences for my family.
Hi there, I’m Vasthi. I’ve been an integral part of the front office support team here at Natural Wonders Healthcare since 2016. What I enjoy most is the warm and positive environment of this office. I work with a group of people who are all dedicated and committed in helping others feel better while supporting each other. It’s wonderful seeing the changes in patients after their treatments.
In my personal life, I am attending nursing school which is both fun and challenging. I also enjoy growing and tending to my garden of fruit trees, meditating, spending time with family and friends, and going to the farmer’s market in the rain (Weird right? But, I love it!).
Hi. My name is Sylissa and I have been working at Natural Wonders Healthcare since 2017. It is rewarding to see our patients leave our office feeling better. I feel honored to be part of their healing experience. Natural Wonders Healthcare has also re-established my faith in the healthcare industry. Working here has allowed me to grow personally in other areas of my life including being a more focused college student.
In my personal time, I enjoy baking deserts (which I’m told are scrumptious!), having fun with my kid sister and friends, and bringing an artistic flair to everything I do.

Hello, I’m Marisa. I’m a Licensed and Certified Massage Therapist with 8 Year of experience. I am a strong believer in the mind-body connection, in that, one influences the other. My style is slow, attentive, and very methodical. I specialize in various combinations of techniques that allow me to deliver treatments that address the roots of postural imbalances, help to positively affect the nervous system, and to encourage relaxation and stillness in the mind & body. I come from a sports medicine background and at Natural Wonders Healthcare I get to share this skill set along with more fluid intuitive techniques.
