Blue Lotus Health & Acupuncture is about more than using TCM as a luxury to treat pain or stress. It is HEALTH care. At BLHA our goal is to treat each individual with the care and respect they need to treat their individual pattern, however it manifests as a disease.
Arwen is from Beauty, KY, just outside Inez in Martin County. She attended Berea College where she majored in Elementary Education. She and her husband, Ramon, returned home to Kentucky from San Diego to raise a family and realize their dream of bringing Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, tuina, taiji, and herbalism to the fine people of this state. She is skilled in general practice, and has much experience in the treatment of pregnant and post-partum women. Arwen utilizes her background in working with children as well as her experience treating her own three kids to effectively manage childhood diseases and other concerns.
With a special interest in Chinese herbal medicine, Fawn utilizes topical poultices and liniments to treat conditions like sprained ankles and painful arthritic hands and knees. She also uses herbs internally for conditions ranging from the common cold to sleep disturbances to menopausal hot flashes. Fawn loves to cook and is a great proponent of using food therapy to manage conditions like diabetes.
Fawn has worked with a wide range of patients, and provided orthopedic assessment and acupuncture for student athletes at UCSD’s RIMAC Athletic Center. Through her work at the Senior Clinic at the First Lutheran Church, she helped elderly patients with chronic pain, diabetes, sleep disturbances, and gastrointestinal, urogenital, autoimmune, and mental health disorders. During her time with the UCSD Cancer Clinic, formerly known as the San Diego Cancer Center (SDCC), Fawn was able to provide palliative care for those in remission and those actively being treated for cancer.
Regardless of age or ailment, Fawn’s main goal is to provide patient-centered care that addresses both the mind and the body. Fawn has a gentle, yet thorough approach.
What Our Clients Say About Us!
“I went to see Shifu for lower back pain. I felt noticeably better after just the first treatment! He was very patient, knowledgeable and caring. Highly recommended.”
“Sf. Ramon Careaga is a professional, compassionate and highly knowledgeable TCM provider. I’ve had endocrine and high blood pressure issues for the pass 5 years. With the treatment and guidance of Mr. Careaga, my blood pressure has decreased by 20 points. And, I have lost weight, which has been a battle for the past 5 years. My overall energy level, physical health and emotional well-being has improved. I am very grateful for his care and time.”
“I have had bad knees my whole life, ever since I was a little kid. As time has gone on my knees have gotten worse. I have had surgery and been to physical therapy many time to keep them functioning. Prior to going in I had given up the idea of playing basketball due to the deterioration of my knees. After my second visit my knee was noticeably stronger and years of wear and tear were taken off. Now I can play basketball, not every day but I am able to play a couple of times a month. Occasionally when I would go in to take care of my knees Arwen would work on other things, like tendinitis in my wrist. Worked on that one day I went in, hasn’t bothered me since, which was in October. If you are looking for an acupuncturist and have an opportunity to go see them you definitely should!”
“I originally sought out acupuncture after living with unexplained pain for nearly 10 years. I was immediately impressed by how willing Ramon and Arwen were to explore different treatment approaches. More importantly I was relieved to finally begin getting answers as to what was causing my symptoms and know that it could be treated. There have been multiple occasions that I arrived to an appointment in pain and left with complete relief of my symptoms. I am also thrilled to say that my greatest area of pain has been relieved and has yet to return. Even when I dont have a specific “symptom” to address, I have enjoyed the stress relief and overall positive energy building that I receive from acupuncture at Blue Lotus and will continue to incorporate treatments as part of maintaining my health in all areas of life.”
This is when I tried something I would never have dreamed I would try: ACUPUNCTURE!Thank you Blue Lotus Health & Acupuncture for giving me my life back!
My pain had become so great it was affecting all my relationships, my husband is glad to see ME again, my children enjoy the new me also. My feet feel wonderful, even after a hard days work.

“When I first came to Blue Lotus, I had tried everything for my fibromyalgia and nothing was working. After my first session of acupuncture, I began to feel relief. I have received open and honest communication about my health and treatment from the beginning. I have been treated with respect and have left each session feeling confident and refreshed. I have been amazed at the results I am seeing and feeling. This has been a fantastic experience and I look forward to continuing.”
