What You'll Get
What can acupuncture treat?
It may be more appropriate to ask, “what can’t acupuncture treat?” because of the wide range of conditions it applies to. It isn’t always the first resource in emergency situations, although it is very effective in the case of fainting or prolonged labor. Acupuncture truly treats a wide range of conditions relating to all systems of the body including but not limited to the visceral, musculoskeletal, psychological, endocrine, reproductive, respiratory, lymphatic, and metabolic, etc.
Often times a person will come to be treated for one thing and find that other aspects of their health are brought into light and therefore improve drastically. This is because acupuncture is a truly holistic system; when you treat one area of the body, it will undeniably always affect another. One of the main tenets of this medicine is to bring the body back into balance, also called homeostasis.
The Chinese have an ancient proverb that states “Treating an illness once symptoms arises is like digging a well when you’re thirsty.” In other words, it is extremely common to have treatments for general tune-ups and to reinforce the circulation of wellness into the body.

Bess has been practicing and studying natural medicine for over 12 years in both academic and clinical settings. She studied with many veteran natural medicine practitioners giving her a broad perspective on holistic medicine before she decided to attend graduate school to specialize in Chinese Medicine. She received her Masters in Science from The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences. Her Bachelors Degree is from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with an individual concentration in “Healing through the Scientific Arts”.

She studied under Patricia Townsend in MA, in Northern India through the Himalayan Health Exchange, and in the Shadow yoga tradition with Andy Matinog. Philosophy and Core Practice Values Bess chose Chinese Medicine most importantly for the ease of access to care for a wide range of patient demographics. First and foremost, she is committed to contributing to improved equity in healthcare. She loves and believes strongly in her specific modality, but also believes the type of medicine used in someone’s healing process is of less importance than the experience of the medicinal process itself. She believes that any medicine can be effective, whether it’s emergency medicine or any specialization, as long as the practitioner-patient relationship is strong. Working as an integrative team across specializations is of high priority for Bess to enhance each patient’s coordination of care. Bess believes that medicine is an art that is always evolving in a broader historical, cultural, political, and environmental context. She aims to preserve the deep roots of Chinese and natural medicine while maintaining flexibility in order to find the most effective treatments for each unique person. She stresses the importance of defining clear roles in the practitioner-patient relationship, empowering the patient to take charge of their own health. As a health practitioner, Bess feels it is her responsibility to find creative health resources for her patients that are life-affirming, utilizing tools that restore the patient’s inherent self-regulating balance and setting goals that are easy to sustain and comply with. Personal Bess lives in Berkeley CA with her fiance Amir and 3-year-old daughter Miele. They spend their free time making stuff, exploring California, listening to music, and relaxing. She has traveled through Asia, the Middle East, Central America and Europe which has greatly influenced her perspective on the many ways that people can find health and satisfaction.
