From Our Editors
Ryan Dempsey, the founder and licensed acupuncturist of Marinwood Community Acupuncture, first crossed paths with the treatment when he traveled to China while earning his undergraduate degree in history. As a part of the National Youth Leadership Forum on Integrated Medicine, he saw firsthand the integration of Western and Chinese medicine in several of the country’s large public hospitals, where he gained a deep appreciation for the culture and history.
But it wasn’t until Ryan experienced a severe shoulder injury that he had personal experience with acupuncture. Faced with the idea of surgery, he instead thought back to his experiences and sought out treatment for himself. Eventually, with treatment and rehabilitation, he recovered fully and was inspired to dedicate his career to Chinese medicine. Now, practicing integrative Chinese medicine with a specialty in women’s health and obstetrics, he runs Marinwood Community Acupuncture, where he invites patrons to seek treatment for conditions relating to areas such as reproductive, neurologic, or sleep. He offers both private and communal acupuncture sessions, as well as herbal medicine (sourced from a company in Boulder, Colorado), directing the best course of treatment and action based on review of patients' medical history and concerns.
