Welcome to the blog of Wealth Acupuncture! My acupuncture and Maya Abdominal Massage practice focuses on women’s health and fertility and in the treatment of pain and digestion. I am one of the only practitioners in Oakland to offer a combination of The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage and acupuncture in one session. I also have expertise in the treatment of chronic and acute pain, depression, digestive and respiratory conditions, and more. I have extensively worked with auto accident injury cases, helping patients fully heal even after several years of unresolved pain. I have also had the pleasure of working with athletes of all types, including Seattle Seahawks football players, treating them for specific injuries as well as for muscle fatigue and overall wellness support.
I worked for nearly 10 years as a journalist in New York City before my own personal health conditions lead me to try acupuncture. I had such a profound healing experience with this effective medicine that I changed careers. I feel so blessed to have become a practitioner of this wonderful medicine. I truly believe that having good health is our greatest wealth and I am honored to share this medicine with my patients.
I founded Wealth Acupuncture in 2006 and am a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in California and New York. I am also a NCCAOM board-certified Chinese herbalist and Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapist. I graduated in 2006 from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in Washington State with a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and hold a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
