• About Sydney

    My mission is to help people transform their own health by providing access to acupuncture and East-Asian medicine.

    Acupuncture & Moxibustion, Herbal Medicine, Cupping

    I came to East-Asian medicine through my own struggle with psoriasis and seek to bring the same relief, transformation, and advocacy to my patients that I have received from acupuncture and herbal medicine throughout my struggle. The style I practice is Japanese meridian therapy, a form of acupuncture marked by gentle needling and the prevalent use of moxibustion (a therapeutic herb used in treatment). I hold a Bachelor's from Cornell University and a Master’s in East-Asian Medicine from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College (AIMC) at Berkeley. I volunteer at the Charlotte Maxwell Integrative Cancer Care Center serving low-income women with cancer. Formerly I have practiced at AIMC Student Clinic and West Berkeley’s Lifelong Medical Clinic serving Medi-Cal patients.


    Prior to East-Asian medicine, I worked for almost 10 years for social enterprises in the United States and Colombia such as Instiglio and Goldieblox.

    Why do I practice East-Asian Medicine?

    Because no one should ever be limited by their circumstances, 

    especially not their health.

    Health is one of our fundamental needs as humans, so the healthier we are the more we can focus on building a life we thrive in. East-Asian Medicine is a powerful form of healthcare that reminds our body how to heal itself, something it innately knows but can forget easily when stress and trauma get in the way. By helping others get their health on track, they can focus on realizing their unlimited potential. If all of us were out there living to our fullest potential, the world would be a better place.
