Carissa Simper, MSOM, LAc
Carissa has discovered she loves to poke people with needles and watch them get better. She has responded to the call of America, who is in great need for an alternative solution to drugs and surgery for chronic pain. People often come to her and say “I have had this pain for years and I have learned to live with it” and they often end their treatment plan saying “The pain is gone, I don’t know what to do with myself.” She especially loves to see the rejoice in people who no longer need to rely on pain medicine for relief, to sleep through the night, and perform daily activities with ease because of acupuncture.
Using this medicine, her goal is to relieve pain, clear seasonal allergies, relieve morning sickness, and clear skin rash in as little as 6-12 sessions. She also likes to help breech presentation and induce labor on babies past their due date.
She graduated with the highest of honors from Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley with a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.
Carissa Simper is licensed to practice acupuncture by the California Acupuncture Board. (Lic #16675)
