Karen Lynne Yochim, an acupuncturist who was a founder of the Columbia Center for the Healing Arts, died Tuesday of cancer at her Roland Park home. She was 40. Miss Yochim also had worked as a financial planner for Investment Management and Research Inc. since 1982. She was working part time for the Calverton firm, which is now Potomac Financial Group, at the time of her death. She became interested in acupuncture -- the ancient healing art that was developed in China more than 5,000 years ago and relies on needles to correct the imbalance of "chi," or the life force -- after suffering a spinal injury and being treated with acupuncture in her 20s. "After her first bout with cancer in 1988, she again was treated with acupuncture and eventually decided that she wanted to be an acupuncturist," said her mother, Marie Patricia Yochim of St. Petersburg, Fla. Miss Yochim graduated in 1996 with a master's degree from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, and was a founder in 1997 of the Columbia Center for the Healing Arts, where she tended to patients until last month.

And from the popularity of the program, it seems most kids couldn't imagine a better way to spend their summers.
