Heather Moore, L.Ac, is a California and NCCAOM certified licensed acupuncturist and a specialist in the treatment of pain and injury. Heather takes a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of pain and strongly believes in integrative medicine to comprehensively treat and eliminate pain and dysfunction after injury; she uses acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and functional medicine. Heather graduated with a Masters of Science, Magne Cum Laude, from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego, in 1999. Here, she had a 2-year apprenticeship with Matt Callison L.Ac., founder of AcuSport, and leader in the acupuncture sports medicine field. After graduation, she continued her studies in the treatment of pain with the late Dr. Tan L.Ac. and Whitfield Reeves L.Ac. Heather discovered the benefits of acupuncture over 25 years ago for a gynecological issue. The only treatment offered by her gynecologist was birth control, which she then discovered she had an allergy to synthetic estrogen. Heather sought an acupuncturist and kinesiologist and her symptoms resolved within 2 cycles. Amazed and intrigued by this experience and also knowing the limitations of Western Medicine, she developed a passion for learning the healing mechanisms of the human body, which she finds is a perfectly designed biological system. When Heather isn’t treating patients, she is outside in nature, honing her archery skills, learning something new, or spending time with friends.
