Grace is a licensed California State Board acupuncturist and herbalist. She graduated with honors from Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, one of southern California’s most academically challenging programs, where she received her master’s degree in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She has been a resident of the Conejo Valley since 1988 and has worked for both western and alternative health care practices throughout the community.
During her time at Yo San, she completed a six-month externship at the Venice Family Pain Clinic in Venice, California. It is here that she began focusing on a specialty in pain management after experiencing the privilege of bringing relief to many patients.
Besides pain management, Grace is also passionate about senior health issues. She feels that it is an under-served population that can definitely benefit from what complementary medicine has to offer. She occasionally lectures in the senior community educating them on the benefits of acupuncture and TCM, as well as nutrition that is senior-oriented and the benefits of Tai Chi.
Another one of her interests is in allergies/sensitivities of various types. Grace previously worked as a chiropractic assistant where the practice’s emphasis was mainly treatment for food and environmental sensitivities. She was also certified as a pranic healer and began working on her own, specifically with Indigo families, empaths and other energy workers.
Grace is a second-generation practitioner in the healing arts, and she learned from her father, an M.D., at a young age how to treat patients with compassion, respect and tolerance. She continues that tradition today with a new perspective on treating patients by combining some western medical thinking with an old-world holistic TCM approach. It is her goal to bridge the gap between both western and eastern philosophies in order to educate the community at large as well as provide the best care for her patients.
