Devin comes to acupuncture from a decade-long career in therapeutic body-work and injury management. Before studying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), she specialized in deep tissue Swedish massage, musculoskeletal alignment, and trigger point therapy. In 2013, Devin decided to pursue a Master’s degree from Five Branches University in TCM because she’d seen the efficacy of the medicine in action while working alongside practitioners at a wellness center in Tucson, Arizona.
Devin has expanded her ability to aid her patients in healing through studying advanced orthopedic techniques and distal needling. She has taken many courses from Brad Whisenant and Chris Volesky in Master Tung points and advanced pulse reading. Her knowledge of western anatomy and extensive experience working with the body enhances her acupuncture treatments, allowing her to address the root of her patients’ pain through a seamless combination of Eastern and Western approaches.
Devin also has had special training in gynecology and fertility; as a student she was invited to intern at the Reproductive Science Center in San Ramon and spent 1 year under the mentorship of Dr Judith Tognetti. She is currently a provider with integrative fertility, providing acupuncture for patients undergoing IVF and other Assisted reproductive technologies all over the bay area. She has worked with Pacific Fertility Center, Laurel Fertility care center, and Spring fertility center. She has helped many couples conceive and bring happy healthy babies into the world.
