Welcome everyone, who seek a path of natural healing and well-being.
The wisdom of Classical Chinese Medicine has been valued and practiced by highly skilled Chinese Medical Doctors for centuries. They have passed their teaching down to many generations. Nobue continues this tradition of sharing knowledge and treats the whole being using ancient methodologies and lifestyle consultation. She creates a total life approach to the effective healing of each person.
As a graduate from ACTCM in San Francisco with a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nobue was trained in diverse clinical settings and in unusual cases. Since 2008, she has studied extensively under the apprenticeship of master acupuncturist, Dr. Robert Johns, OMD, L.Ac., author of "The Art of Acupuncture Technique". Along her private practice, Nobue has maintained a position as a volunteer acupuncturist at Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic in San Francisco since 2012. With a strong desire for a deeper understanding of Chinese Medicine, Nobue contiunes her furthur education at Five Brahcnes University, where she is a candidate for a Doctorate Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Born and raised in Japan, Nobue came to the US as a young teenager. Her interest in art and architecture blossomed in her undergraduate years when she completed a BA in Fine Art at Mills College. Continuing her artistic training in the MFA program in Interior Design at the Academy of Art University in SF, Nobue learned of Rudolf Steiner’s teaching philosophy and Waldorf Education. She enjoyed her unique experiences as an early childhood educator at Waldorf kindergartens. Holistic education and living approach rooted deeply into her heart, and led her to an interest in Art Therapy, Anthroposophical Medicine, Bach Flower Remedy, and the study of Chinese Medicine to help heal friends and family—as well as to respect and appreciate her own heritage. Nobue’s practice focuses on the essential ideas in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Anthroposophy – supporting human health by strengthening the patient’s physiology and individuality. She values both perspectives of Eastern and Western philosophies.
