Donna Chang, L.Ac. (MSOM)
Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist

I am passionate about making natural health care widely accessible and building community.

Having grown up in Hong Kong, I had an interest in Chinese Medicine and Taoism from a young age. I moved from Hong Kong back to the Bay Area, where I was born, when I was 17 years old. In my twenties, I struggled with my health and wasn't able to get the help I needed from mainstream medicine. My search for better ways to improve my health led me to study natural medicine, self-care principles, nutrition, and ultimately to get a master's degree from Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley. There, I also participated in externships at San Francisco Prenatal Homeless Clinic and the West Berkeley Lifelong Medical Center. My specialties include holistic vision care, nutrition, women's health, pain reduction, digestive health, immunity and stress management.

Mandy Rosenberg, L.Ac. (MSOM)
Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist

I was first introduced to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine while living in Southern California back in 2003. Having been diagnosed with a broken foot and chronic arthritis condition that were not responding to the mainstream treatment regimen, I turned to acupuncture and Chinese nutritional and herbal therapy as an alternative. I found acupuncture to be the only consistent source of pain relief and healing. This experience brought me to study at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA where I earned my Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine and my license to practice Acupuncture.

My extensive background working in the education field and the non-profit sector has given me a strong belief that acupuncture should be affordable and available to anyone interested in receiving its many benefits. I was naturally drawn to the Community Acupuncture treatment style.
I believe that healthcare belongs to everyone. The body is an amazing machine that has the capacity to transform and heal, I'm here to help with that process.
As a Northern California native I enjoy being out in nature as much as possible, spending time sewing and being crafty, going to see live music, and enjoying time with my family and friends. 

 

Ana Simono, L.Ac. (MSOM)
Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist

Having worked as a massage therapist and Reiki Master for the past 11 years, I was often left with the feeling that there was more that could be done for the client.  That is how I came to explore and fall in love with Acupuncture, and Chinese Herbs 7 years ago.  In earning a Masters Degree from Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley, I was able to bring together all the elements that seemed to fit perfectly in supplementing each other (meridian therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine internal medicine, energy therapy, manual manipulation of muscles, heat therapy, and herbology,).

Being Japanese Brazilian, I have been exposed to the yin/yang of cultures, and have been able to find a working harmonious middle ground.  At the core of both cultures is the appreciation of nature, and the essence of life (movement of Qi – energy) .  It is this energy that I hope to cultivate in my treatments and everyday life. 

I am blessed to work in Alameda Community Acupuncture.  I have been fascinated with working in a community setting ever since I was an intern for AIMC at the Homeless Prenatal Project of San Francisco.  There, I was able to see the power that a group setting has in the healing process of individuals and families.

I hope that my experience as an acupuncturist treating conditions ranging from stress management, fertility, insomnia, internal medicine and pain management can be of value to Alameda Community Acupuncture.

Eun Kim, L.Ac. (MSOM) (starting Jan. 15, 2017)

Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist

My roots are in Changpari, South Korea but I was raised in the Pacific Northwest of Oregon, birthplace of the community acupuncture movement!  I received my first acupuncture treatment in the early 90’s and I was awakened to how elegant, powerful and transformative this medicine is.  The price tag, however, made acupuncture an utter luxury.  Enter community acupuncture and many doors to access have finally been opened!  

This is my life’s work and I want to be able to share this brilliant medicine with as many people as possible.

I trained at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and worked at a private fertility clinic before joining the community acupuncture movement.

‚ÄčI practice Longfist kungfu, engage in community organizing, and enjoy exploring the beauty of California’s outdoors with my family.

As a life-time dancer and movement-inquirer, my goal is to help the world move joyfully. Can we play in the places we ache? Qigong brings together my love of fluid movement, my interest in sustainable health for individuals and communities, and my sincere curiosity in what it means to be human. Qigong has helped me relieve digestive issues, feel more emotionally balanced, and cultivate greater self-compassion. Qigong and meditation give me tools to engage in my life with more sensitivity, presence and awareness.
