Embodied Medicine for the Celestial Soul

Acupuncture | Herbs | Bodywork | Yoga | Workshops

Meet Andrea Valencia

Licensed Acupunctuist, Herbalist, and Yoga Instructor

As an East Asian medicine practitioner, my goal is to help our community reconnect and reclaim their embodiment. I utilize traditional and modern schools of medicine to treat ailments and provide you with tools for well-being. My intention during our sessions is to create a compassionate space for the understanding and manifestation of your health care needs.

 

My clinical experience has been sculpted by diverse integrative and nonprofit health centers. I have had the privilege of supporting homeless youth, marginalized people, and individuals with addictions move towards improved health and self-sufficiency. In addition to working in community empowering spaces, I enjoy sharing my background in movement therapies to further integrate my treatments with cultivative exercises and a choreographic approach to medicine. Although my interests evolve and are influenced by our collaboration, I focus on supporting mental and emotional health, musculoskeletal pain, digestive discomforts, women's health, and sexual well-being.

My role as a practitioner is to create space for the body to do what it innately does so well – heal. I offer acupuncture, individualized herbal formulas, bodywork, movement recommendations, nutritional and lifestyle counseling as tools to support you and your body’s equilibrium.
