Dr. Dawn Mamikunian L.Ac., DACM

My goal is to help my patients achieve optimum health and wellness through the use of traditional Chinese medicine. I will support you with acupuncture, nutrition advise, exercise, meditation, as well as mind & body awareness to heal yourself naturally. My background includes training not only in acupuncture, but also in a wide array of Chinese medicine modalities, ie: cupping, gua sha, Chinese herbs and electrical stimulation. I have a degree in biochemistry and photography from the University of California San Diego and then did my masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. Just recently, I received a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I am licensed by the state of New York and California and recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Over the years, I have seen the impressive results that acupuncture and Chinese medicine can have for all different types of conditions. This is why I am so grateful to be able to share the benefit of my extensive education with you and offer support. Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to me. I am happy to answer any questions regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Together we can work toward achieving your health and wellness goals.
