Dr. Robyn Benson is a pioneer of the Self-Care Revolution, which aims to transform lives and healthcare, one person at a time. This mission has been fueled by lessons she’s learned and the wisdom and insights she’s GAINED on her transformational journey as a doctor of Oriental medicine, which includes traveling to more than 70 countries. For the past 25 years, she’s applied her considerable knowledge of acupuncture, herbs, IV therapies and leading-edge energy medicine to help patients achieve optimal, radiant and sustainable health. In 2005, Dr. Robyn founded Santa Fe Soul, an innovative healthcare center which now has a staff of 20 practitioners. A mother, adventure enthusiast, world traveler, author and speaker, Dr. Robyn brings a decidedly holistic approach to 21st-Century healthcare.
One of Robyn Benson’s most important Life Principles is to stretch far beyond her comfort zones. The lessons she’s learned as a result, both through world travel and her own internal explorations, have changed Robyn’s life, and now she wants to help you change yours.
Having lost a brother and a good friend by the time she was 15, Robyn has known her entire life that she was meant to learn how to live a healthy, full, and present life, and that she was meant to pass on what she learned to others. A self-proclaimed novelty junkie, Robyn’s knowledge comes from real experience traveling the world and asking the people she meets to teach her more about living well, living long, and living life. Upon returning home, Robyn spends much of her time researching what she learned in order to marry the wisdom of nature and experience with the knowledge of science. The offspring of such a marriage are books that she has written (The Healthy Conscious Traveler: 8 Pathways to Smart and Effortless Travel…) and is currently writing, and her thriving practice at Santa Fe Soul Center for Optimal Health in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Robyn founded and built Santa Fe Soul in 2005, with the mission to offer patients comprehensive complementary care, with twenty-five practitioners, offering forty modalities with an emphasis of bridging the best of eastern and western medicine.
The mission of this center quickly expanded to include a non-profit called Santa Fe Soul Foundation, which Robyn founded in 2006. The foundation provides access to holistic and complementary health care through grants and participatory healing opportunities to New Mexico’s economically challenged communities, ensuring that Robyn’s message is accessible to everyone.
Robyn has most recently launched what she considers her most important legacy outside of her two children and it is called the Self Care Revolution.
“I love taking people through major transformations in their healthcare,” she says. “There’s nothing better.”
Robyn earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Medicine from the University of Virginia and her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and is board-certified in orthopedic and pediatric acupuncture. With twenty-five years of professional experience, she specializes in pain management, women’s health, and family medicine. In addition to acupuncture, Robyn offers more than a dozen other healing options to her clients, including IV therapies and cutting-edge energy medicine.
