Patricia believes that the body has an amazing capacity to heal. Her job as an acupuncturist and herbalist is to ignite and fortify that capacity. She has a dual Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. In 2013 she received the Golden Flower Award for excellence in herbal medicine. Diagnosis is her strength and she welcomes complex cases in which conventional western medicine has no satisfactory therapy. She is board certified by state and national standards.
