Receive Acupuncture to Reduce Stress and
Experience Joy in Your Life!
I have a practice in a beautiful office in Oakland. I treat a lot of people with the following issues: stress, pain, insomnia, difficulty conceiving, menstrual difficulties, and digestive problems. I love what I do and spend time with each patient determining what the root cause of their issue is so that they can feel better as quickly as possible and feel empowered about their health. I often study with Richard Tan and use his style of treatment when I feel it is appropriate.
I am a Berkeley native and attended college at UC Santa Cruz. I graduated with a BA in Anthropology and my emphasis was on Medical Anthropology which focuses on how one's cultural beliefs affect their health and illness. I attended the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. After finishing acupuncture school, I moved back to Santa Cruz to study with my first acupuncturist, Michael Burton. When I was ready to set up my own practice, I decided to move back to the East Bay. I have been practicing Chinese Medicine for 8 years now and I love it.
