About Dr. Mili

I am a passionate holistic acupuncture doctor living and practicing in San Diego, CA.  I offer Classical Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, and Health Empowerment Education in a supportive and nourishing environment.  What attracted me to Holistic Medicine was the fundamental understanding of the subtle intricacies of the natural world and how it relates to our ability to live in harmony with our internal and external environments.  My passion is helping people like you align their mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing with gentle guidance customized to your needs.  

I practice Classical Five Element Acupuncture, a powerful system of acupuncture that unlocks your deepest healing intelligence and allows you to align with your truest self.  By providing access to this deep healing reserve that exists in each one of us, your symptoms start to fall away as you stand strong and resilient in health, happiness and peace.  

Herbal therapy is also another passion of mine.  It can be a great boost to treatment and is provided on an as needed basis.  Custom formulas are made for purchase and are combined for specific ailments.  They are based in extensive research in Chinese Medical Formulas as well as Ayurvedic and Western Herbalism.  In addition to custom formulas that may be prescribed, I love making home remedies, syrups, tinctures, skin care and food recipes that introduce herbs to our daily routines.  These products will be available for purchase as they become available.
