Victoria Johnson

I am a California licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and certified massage therapist living in Oakland, CA since 2001. I earned a B.A. in Biology with a minor in Holistic Health before receiving my Master’s degree in Chinese Medicine. I started in the healing arts in 1996 after caring for my father in hospice where a simple foot massage could transform both his spirit and his overall pain level. Today, I continue to use a hands-on approach to my acupuncture sessions, often incorporating bodywork to diagnose, treat pain and restore balance.

I’ve spent my post graduate years learning Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) with distinguished doctors from China. CCM looks at your body’s pattern through the lens of the Han dynasty and chooses herbs that match your unique pattern. I also use CCM, acupuncture and nutritional supplements to support women’s health, fertility, pregnancy and postpartum care.

My goal is to get to the root of your issues and address your symptoms quickly so that you can live your best life — pain-free and in harmony with the seasons and the natural world.
