Dr. Reyna became interested in herbal medicine after it saved her life while traveling in Nepal. She was staying with a family there, and the mother of the family used herbal medicine on her life-threatening infection since she did not have access to antibiotics until returning home. They saved her life and she began studying herbal medicine and then acupuncture as a result. Ama is the word for mother in the Nepali language, and the clinic is named in honor of her beautiful mother in Nepal. Dr. Reyna still keeps in contact with her Nepal family and visits them whenever possible.
Dr. Reyna tries to live a healthy, balanced life as much as possible. She makes sleep a high priority, eats an organic whole foods diet, and works out regularly doing martial arts, strength training, swimming laps, and high intensity cross training workouts with high impact interval training (HIIT), powerlifting, olympic lifting, strongman, and anything that gives an adrenaline rush. She has a special love for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) above all else, but she also loves the striking and kicking of Muay Thai kickboxing. Dr. Reyna enjoys spending time with her husband traveling, hiking, snowshoeing, meditating, and going on adventures. She also receives regular acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic care. To maintain her youthful appearance, Dr. Reyna receives cosmetic acupuncture and uses herbal skin care products.
