Dr. Lucy Xiao, DAOM, LAC.

Dr. Xiao is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in the State of California and nationwide, and has been in practice for over 15 years. She received her Doctoral degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Five Branches University and M.S. from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She also studied with the late Dr. Wang Juyi, a renowned acupuncture master and teacher in Beijing, China, who inspired her to train in the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine.


In addition to acupuncture and herbal treatments, she provides holistic health consultation to help her patients better understand their nutrition and life style, and live in more balanced and healthy ways. Her style is gentle and "hands-on", with warmth and light-heartedness.


She has practiced Zen meditation for many years and has taught classes and retreats on meditation, mindfulness and Zen classics at San Francisco Zen Center, Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, SF Asian Art Museum and other venues. 

She was born and raised in Guangzhou (Canton), China. As Chinese say, "饮水思源" — "When you drink water, remember the source from which it came." She is most grateful for her patients and the opportunity to practice this medicine. 


May you and your loved ones be happy, safe and in good health.
