"I love to utilize the wisdom of the east and blend them with the innovations of the west to create a holistic healing experience for my patients. I focus on pinpointing and unraveling root causes of pathological disease patterns to create lasting and practical changes for my patients.”

Kathleen Lee L.Ac. is an acupuncturist who empowers patients who are ready to take an active role in their own health. She is a licensed and registered CTCMA (College of Traditional Chinese Medicine) acupuncturist who uses the combination of traditional acupuncture, Five Elements acupuncture (mind-body), manual therapies, nutritional/supplement/lifestyle counseling and herbal prescriptions. She is well-versed in western lab testing and offers functional interpretation and counseling to help you make significant changes to bring you to your most optimum health. 


As a Fellow of the ABORM (American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine), she specializes in the treatment of hormone and endocrine imbalances, particularly those affecting women such as infertility, uterine fibroids, uncomfortable menstrual cycles and pre-and-post-menopause. She is also interested in working with patients who are suffering from endocrine disorders such as thyroid imbalances, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, and blood sugar issues. Her extensive training in diet and nutrition makes her an ideal practitioner for tackling digestive issues. She has a deep-rooted belief that we as humans are holistic beings and it is impossible to make physical changes without addressing the mental, emotional and spiritual facets of her patients.  


Kathleen received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology at University of California, Santa Cruz. After graduation, she enrolled at Five Branches University to obtain her Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine with a certificate in Five Elements Acupuncture.
