REMIX Acupuncture + Integrative Health was created by Giselle Wasfie, a former magazine editor/music journalist turned Chinese-medicine practitioner (doctor of acupuncture + Chinese medicine and board-certified herbalist), on the premise of creating a much-needed change in the wellness industry. Inspired by the power of botanicals and natural remedies, Giselle sought out to fill a void in the market: to make health approachable and fun, removing the fear, confusion and alienation people feel with allopathic medicine.
When Founder, Giselle Wasfie was in grad school studying herbal medicine, she became inspired to create natural beauty that was also therapeutic. After seeing patients with similar issues — from sleep to focus — she decided to formulate products that people could purchase to stay connected to their treatments; and, for people from anywhere in the world to experience the power of REMIX’s natural remedies.
REMIX was inspired by the idea that the pursuit of wellness can be empowering and fun, and accessible to modern society. Through REMIX, Giselle hopes to use the power of natural medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, aromatherapy and natural beauty to empower people to take hold of their health.
