Candise discovered acupuncture and herbal medicine in the midst of her own healing crisis. Having struggled for years with anxiety, insomnia, as well as various chronic aches and pains, she was more than willing to join in when a friend invited her along to try acupuncture. The following year, after experiencing first-hand the deep healing that it occasions, she enrolled in acupuncture school, and graduated in 2015 with a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Candise currently practices both in San Francisco and in the East Bay, and connects deeply with her patients. She believes in supporting and empowering her patients in their journeys, at whichever point they may currently find themselves, through all stages of life. With compassion and deep respect for each person's process, she offers heart-centered support to patients who may be working on reclaiming their own health and wellbeing, as well as to those engaged in supporting the growth of new life
