She feels lucky to have settled in such a magical place and looks forward to getting to know all of you and serving this great community.
Angelica (she/her) has spent the last decade-plus working as a clinical massage therapist after a string of other physically demanding jobs. She fell in love with acupuncture as it presented a uniquely accessible option to manage chronic pain from work, as well as a compassionate environment that provides patients immediate treatment—something rare in our current system. She recently obtained her Master’s in Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine from the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine (SIEAM). Studying acupuncture has added another layer to her understanding of anatomy, fascial connections and how to treat pain. Her work is informed by orthopedic and structural training as well as life experience; she’s interested in how people use and hold their bodies as we make our way through life. She is also certified and trained through the National AcuDetox Association (NADA), as substance use management and harm reduction are of particular interest to her.
