About Melinda Wiggins, MSOM, LAc, CMT

Established in 2003.

Melinda is a licensed acupuncturist and bodyworker of more than 10 years. Extensive experience performing acupuncture in Guatemala at Hospitalito de Santiago; interning at CPMC under orthopedic surgeon Dr. Chris Cox and P.A. Kim Lanford; working with pre and post-surgical patients at Advanced Physical Medicine as a licensed acupuncturist; interning with Josh Margolis, L.Ac. in orthopedics; and currently studying extensive combinations of both herbal medicine and allopathic drugs with mentors Dr. John Chen and Dr. Kyle Miura; have all contributed to her knowledge and understanding. Through her study of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, bodywork, and of Eastern and Western Medicines, she has obtained many tools to aid people in their path of overall health and well-being.

How we were trained

Melinda has a background of Chinese Medicine, Western herbal medicine, and midwifery. Growing up in a large family in the North Carolina mountains, she learned much of herbs and gardening, as well as using what was available to help those around her. Although her background is in Chinese medicine and Western herbal medicine, she enjoys a continual study of the sciences and allopathic medicine to more fully understand the Western perspective of mainstream medicine, and how it, nutrition, and Chinese medicine compliment one another. She took a Pre-Med Program at UC Berkeley Extension, then the MCAT, then decided to use the knowledge of sciences learned to integrate into her acupuncture practice.
