We discussed Acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. An acupuncturist encourages the body to promote natural healing by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at acupuncture points.

My guests focused on their work in community clinics, treating people who in the past could not afford acupuncture.

“Our goal is to build community by delivering compassionate care in a comfortable accessible place of rest and refuge. We help create social change by offering relief from pain, suffering, stress and isolation. We envision a world where acupuncture is part of everyday life for people of diverse social, cultural and economic backgrounds.” —Sarana Community Acupuncture. 

Guests:

Jeffrey Levin, LAc, received his California acupuncture license and M.S. in Asian Medicine from AIMC in 2008. After a year of successfully working in private practice, he decided to make a change. He started to work at the Oakland Acupuncture Project in early 2010, and since then has helped them open other locations. Aside from continuing to provide an average of 80 acupuncture treatments a week, Jeffery oversees (with co-owner Whitney) the operations of their three clinic locations. 

Tatyana Ryevzina, LAc has been practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for 13 years. In 2008, she helped co-found Sarana Community Acupuncture, a non-profit clinic offering affordable accessible acupuncture in a peaceful and relaxing open space. Tatyana discovered her passion for helping bring acupuncture to underserved populations while working in a public health clinic in S.F. and volunteering at CharlotteMaxwell Complementary Clinic in Oakland.

We addressed alcohol addiction as a chronic and treatable brain disease that requires medical intervention, not moral judgment.
