Crystal Zhao, LAc, DACM

Crystal is a licensed acupuncturist with a Master’s and Doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM). Since childhood, she has been helping at her father’s acupuncture clinic in San Francisco’s Chinatown. With the countless hours of observation there, she has seen first-hand the relief TCM treatments have brought to patients and would like to help others in the same way.

After receiving a bachelor of science in applied mathematics in 2012 from UC Riverside, she returned to San Francisco to study Chinese Medicine at ACTCM.  Since then, she has studied under different masters of Chinese medicine. Besides her father’s clinic, she has provided acupuncture to patients at Berkeley Primary Care, ACTCM’s community clinic, and at various outreach events. Through the use of acupuncture, manual therapy, herbal medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle changes, Crystal strives to offer relief to patients as well as tools to further their healing at home. Having grown up with a father passionate in TCM orthopedics and two chiropractors in the family, she is especially interested in treating musculoskeletal pain. She believes an integrative approach and patient education are keys to a patient’s healing
