About - Kris Gonzalez Acupuncture in Santa Barbara

I am a California and Idaho licensed Acupuncturist and Board-certified Herbalist.  I earned a master's degree in Science and Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Through working with my patients I have seen the impressive results that acupuncture and Chinese medicine can have. I am grateful to be able to share the benefit of my extensive education with you. My background includes training not only in acupuncture, but in a wide array of Chinese medicine modalities. I have sub-specialty training in pain management, therapeutic application of essential oils and Women's Health.  In addition to utilizing my knowledge of Oriental Medicine, I incorporate my western medical training to help my patients find the root cause to their health concerns.  With a knowledgeable, caring and empathetic approach, I encourage all my patients towards empowerment in regards to their health. 

I've always been influenced by traditional medicine since growing up and visiting my family in South Korea. I recall memories of my grandmother easing my stomach pains with hand acupressure and healing soups. This tradition has imprinted itself in the way I approach treatments. I strongly believe in the healing nature of the patient/practitioner relationship and that it benefits both individuals. I live in San Diego with my husband and two young and energetic boys. When time permits and the stars are aligned I enjoy practicing qigong & yoga in nature, dancing and baking. I look forward to assisting you on your healing journey.

Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Together we can work toward achieving your health and wellness goals.
