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.

Gua Sha as Self-Care

Gua sha, sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping,’ is an ancient therapeutic modality that encourages lymphatic drainage and promotes blood flow in the body. These simple techniques produce an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single self-care session. Experience relief from musculoskeletal pain, stiffness, fever, chills, coughing, scar tissue build up and more. If you'd like to practice the techniques with Andrea, you can buy a gua sha tool or simply purchase a porcelain soup spoon.
