When you come in… may the weight of the world fall from your shoulders.
I’m glad you’re here.
Through the creation of Island Acupuncture I have cultivated my desire to help every person get the care they want and deserve through every stage of life by using acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and western labs to commonly treat:
- Menstrual issues: painful or heavy periods, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis
- Infertility due to both known and unknown causes
- IVF and ART support
- Pregnancy support for nausea, edema, pain, preeclampsia, frequent miscarriage
- Menopausal issues like insomnia, fatigue, hot flashes/sweats, moodiness, diminished libido
Holistic Health Practice
Island Acupuncture is a holistic reproductive health practice with an emphasis on LGBTQIA+ care. Whether trying to conceive or experiencing general health issues my mission is to provide excellent and expert care to all, while creating and holding a space where each patient feels respected, heard, and truly seen.
Every stage of a life is filled with hormonal changes, from reproductive hormones to non-reproductive hormones they all affect how your body functions. At Island Acupuncture, I blend western medical understanding of hormones and the body with Chinese medicine concepts, yielding a truly holistic treatment of your whole being. Reproductive health is for anyone with a reproductive system, working with patients at the onset of puberty, whether natal or medication induced, through pre-conception, through pregnancy and on through meno/andropause.
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I created Island Acupuncture to serve the needs of every person seeking care. The LGBTQIA+ community has unique needs, which require respect, knowledge, and experience to effectively meet. Understanding, supporting and bringing ease to the hormonal process of those transitioning, trying to conceive, or experiencing any hormonal imbalance or shift is at the core of what I do.
I build personal treatment plans for:
- Gender affirming practices related to transitioning socially, medically or surgically
- Transgender, non-binary+, gay, lesbian, bisexual fertility and family planning
- Pregnancy care
- Preparation for surrogacy
- Working with your gestational carrier during pregnancy
- Helping you prepare for egg or sperm extraction
At Island Acupuncture you will feel safe, respected, heard, and valued as I help you achieve your treatment plan goals. You come as you are into an environment that welcomes you with open arms.
Island Acupuncture acknowledges the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe in Alameda, I recognize and pay my respects to the indigenous people who have stewarded this land prior to colonization and forced displacement.
Participating in Sogorea Te’ Land Trust’s Shuumi Land Tax is an opportunity to support indigenous land stewardship and contribute to the process of decolonization.
Each of my patients at Island Acupuncture has the right to be cared for with respect, dignity, fairness, and compassion regardless of race, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, disability, or sources of payment.
