Provider: About Us


Being from an immigrant family, Carol grew up in a household surrounded by acupuncture, herbal remedies, food therapy, and gua sha/cupping modalities. These early exposures as a kid laid a foundation for her fascination with this healing art.


Frustrated with how conventional medicine was unable to help her digestive and emotional concerns, she turned to acupuncture and herbs and was bewildered by how much better she felt. This catapulted her education and career towards Eastern Medicine. Throughtout her education, she had the pleasure of treating patients from all different demographics including active military and veterans, low income, homeless, UCSD athletes, and Rady's Hospital children.


She continues to be amazed by how this beautiful healing tradition nourishes the body from within and addresses the core issues at hand. Seeing the body as a whole to address the physical, mental, and spiritual bodies just makes sense. She has experience in treating an array of disorders involving acute and chronic pain, digestion, women's health, fertility, psycho-emotional, sleep, allergies, and more. She feels fortunate to be in this field and excited to help others on their journey to optimal health.
