Claudia Venn, MSTCM, L.Ac.
As a passionate and focused dancer since childhood, Claudia Venn understands intimately both the body and its physiology. Claudia was introduced to acupuncture at a stressful time of her life – in pain after a car accident, none of the accepted forms of pain relief helped her situation. After acupuncture and herbal medicine helped alleviate her chronic pain conditions, Claudia became curious about the science and travelled to China to study further. After receiving her Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Claudia has been working with patients, using her understanding of women’s health, Chinese medicine and acupuncture to treat the body as a whole being, and taking into account both physiological and psychological realities. Claudia integrates acupuncture, herbs and medical qi gong to move her patients through the healing process. Her own experience with chronic pain gives her the unique understanding of a patient’s requirements, and the empathy to implicitly understand their needs. Claudia has worked with experts in the field of pain management, adrenal fatigue, pediatrics, women’s health including: infertility, pre and post-natal care, hormonal balance and pregnancy. She has interned with specialists at the California Pacific Medical Center Stroke and Rehabilitation Unit, Ashby Center for Alternative Medicine, and with mentors: Dr. Robert Zieger and Marti Lee Kennedy DAOM. She currently has a thriving practice, Venn Acupuncture, in Berkeley California.
