We are a general practice providing both private and community acupuncture, herbal therapies, holistic health counseling, mindfulness training and qi gong. We specialize in treating people suffering from short and long term emotional trauma and the disease processes associated with it. We are always looking for community partners who also share the same commitment and missions.
Bio
I began my career as an acupuncturist/herbalist in 2006 with a unique mission- to serve the underserved community. After becoming licensed in 2006, I took Lisa Rohleder's first Community Acupuncture workshop and training, brought the information home with me to San Diego and opened the first Community Acupuncture clinic in San Diego County, Healthy Community Acupuncture. Since then, I have opened a new clinic and turned into a hybrid- with both private and community acupuncture. But my commitment is the same- to provide affordable, quality acupuncture and TCM to my under-served community. Through the years I have discovered more and more, just how much emotional trauma factors into chronic diseases, of all kinds. As my expereince of this phenomena has grown, and as emotional trauma is heightened by our political and economic climate, I have become more focused on treating those suffering from trauma in my community. Acupuncture and TCM shine in this area. We have so much to offer. So it is now, my added mission, to focus on serving those suffering from trauma in my community.
