Practitioners


 

Victoria Risovanny

I am a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of California, a graduate of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California with a Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine.  In my practice I focus on pain relief, women’s health conditions, and stress management. My clinical expertise includes internships at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine Clinic, San Diego Cancer Center Hospital, Pacific Center of Health, and Reproductive Wellness Center.

While working on Master’s degree, I volunteered and worked for several years at the San Diego’s Pacific Center Of Health. It was a great opportunity to learn about holistic medicine from experienced and well renowned practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine who successfully restored health of many local residents. These practitioners became a great influence and inspiration during the studies.

In my personal practice patient’s comfort is the top priority. I perform very gentle needling technique, which is closer to Japanese-style acupuncture than to Traditional Chinese methods.  First I palpate body areas to find affected meridians and then select the most appropriate points. Only a small number of disposable needles is used which are inserted with a very light touch.

I am a founder of San Diego Healthcare and Wellness Practitioners Network. The group unites local providers of medical services and alternative medicine who support and  promote holistic medicine.
