MEET THE TEAM

Laura Schultz, L.Ac.

Hello! My name is Laura and I am a California State Licensed Acupuncturist & National Diplomate of Acupuncture. I love Traditional Eastern Medicine and am excited to share with you the many benefits of this ancient and time tested system of medicine.

I began my career in holistic health as a massage therapist over a decade ago. Through massage I have helped hundreds of people feel better in their bodies, but I always felt like there was more that I could know and do to help people with deeper and more complicated health concerns.

So, I became an acupuncturist. To do so, I studied for four years at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine here in San Diego. During these four years, I completed over 3,600 hours of training in acupuncture techniques, herbal medicine, and biomedical pathology.

While completing my 540 clinical hours, I studied under some of the most respected acupuncturists and herbalists in the area, and had the opportunity to intern at Rady Children’s Hospital.

Since graduating, I have continued my studies with a focus in Fertility, Menstrual Irregularities, and Pediatrics. While these are not the only conditions I treat, these are the areas that I feel especially passionate about.

I am lucky to call myself a San Diego native and even luckier to still be able to call this beautiful city my home! When not in the clinic, I enjoy gardening and exploring our beautiful city with my family and dogs.
