Hi, I'm Linda. I am a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and a licensed acupuncturist in Los Angeles.
My Russian immigrant grandmother was the first person to expose me to Old World healing and health practices: herbal teas rich with antioxidants, savory soups bursting with anti-inflammatory ingredients, lively conversations that released endorphins. Since those years long ago, I have carried the properties and values of those ancient healing practices with me.
My own transformative experiences with the beautifully healing aspect of acupuncture and herbal medicine led me to pursue a career in Chinese medicine.
I received my degree as a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with a specialty in Fertility, Pregnancy, and Pediatrics from Emperor's College in Santa Monica. Prior to that, I received my master's degree, summa cum laude, also from Emperor’s College. During my externship, I had the honor of practicing acupuncture and herbal medicine at the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence Hospital in Burbank.
40% of my education focused on Western Medicine, so I gained a deep respect for both ends of the healing spectrum. Just as there is balance in our bodies, there must be balance in our medicine. I strive to work with the allopathic medical community so that our patients will benefit most from our combined care.
I have treated hundreds of patients for all different reasons, the most common being:
- hormone imbalance
- facial rejuvenation
- skin conditions
- colds and flu
- digestive disorders
- autoimmune issues
I look forward to your well being!
