Xiaojing Wang, L.Ac.
I am a California licensed acupuncturist and herbalist based in Oakland, California. Originally from China, I grew up acculturated with traditional Chinese medicine concepts and dietary knowledge passed down through the maternal line of my family.
After spending much of my 20s and 30s working on health-related public policies, I made the leap to the provider side of the healthcare field. I find joy in helping patients resolve complex health challenges and sharing my knowledge of Chinese medicine (see our blog and sign up for our monthly newsletter). I love that Chinese medicine and integrative healthcare offer the opportunity for continuous learning.
I am also the Program and Finance Director at the East Bay Meditation Center and believe strongly that mindfulness practice can lead to a healthier integration of our mind, body and spirit. I'm committed to offering body positive and non-judgmental healthcare to a diverse patient base.
