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.

Community Acupuncture

$45 appointment only

Healthcare para todos! In an effort to make medicine accessible, community acupuncture provides low cost treatments for you, your friends and family. Your session will take place in a communal setting as you rest on a yoga mat and supportive props (provided). The treatment will utilize points on the scalp, ears, below the elbows and knees to treat the entire body – simply remove your socks, roll up your pants and sleeves!

Appointment times:

- 2:00pm

- 2:45pm

- 3:30pm

[only 3 spots available per appointment time]

What to expect:
* arrive at the studio, check in
* sign paperwork (first time only)
* find a yoga mat and make yourself comfortable (there will be tea and water available)
* we’ll get started by discussing your main focus for the session
* I will feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and clean the points I’ll be stimulating with alcohol wipes
* after the needles are placed, you will rest for 20min (I am in the room the whole time should you need anything or wish to end the session earlier)
* once the needles are removed, you are free to enjoy the rest of your day!
