Susan Housand is a California state licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She specialized in women’s health throughout all of its transitions: adolescence, fertility, and aging. Susan is currently a doctoral candidate with an emphasis in Chinese medical classics and pain management at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, where she earned her master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Susan is also a credentialed qigong instructor and a certified abdominal massage therapist.
In addition to her work in healthcare, Susan holds a master's degree in computer science and studied classics as an undergraduate. She worked as a software developer for ten years and then discovered her own fertility challenges. With the help of a reproductive endocrinologist and an acupuncturist, she welcomed twins into the world in 2005. For Susan, that experience marked a career change and sparked a deep interest and passionate study of Chinese medicine.
Susan’s approach is gentle and supportive, knowledgable and intuitive. She has a repertoire of modalities and experiences to draw from to create personalized and effective care. She provides useful methods and strategies that empower her patients to take charge of their own wellness. She is also in the process of becoming a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).
