Dr. Lindsey Friedman LAc DACM
Acupuncturist and Herbalist
My calling to be a resource for people on their path to optimal health emanated from my own journey of personal wellness after going through a major car accident. I integrated both Western treatments and Eastern medical treatments to achieve my health goals of body, mind and spirit. I saw first hand the immense benefits of Eastern medicine including acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine and stress & emotional management techniques.
I have completed internships at both Rady Children’s Hospital and a Veterans clinic in San Diego. At Rady Children’s Hospital I gained valuable experience working with children of all ages in the pediatric chronic pain program. At the Veterans clinic my work focused on chronic pain, mental and emotional health issues. I received my Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTOM) and Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) and I am licensed to practice in the state of California.
Outside of my career my interests include spending time in nature with my husband, son, dog, family and friends. I enjoy meditation, yoga, hiking and swimming in the ocean.
I look forward to meeting with you and assisting in your personal health goals.
