Thank you for stopping by!
My name is Julie Liang and I am a licensed acupuncturist here in San Diego with a Masters of Science degree in Oriental Medicine and a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I have always been fascinated with the subconscious human mind and the physical body. How their interconnectedness impacts one another to express physically and emotionally in various ways.
I have traveled along many roads during my career spending 12 years of them with a large national corporate retailer before discovering my true passion for health and finally being led here as the proud new owner of Pivotal Acupuncture + Wellness. I grew up watching what ill health looked like – physically, mentally, and emotionally, and witnessed the toll it took on the people I loved. I spent years of my own not prioritizing my health, watching it deteriorate and not understanding why I felt so bad but after a fortuitous introduction to acupuncture and traditional medicine I discovered a whole new outlook on what healthy meant. I felt the benefits of the changes in myself and decided to make it my goal to share that wonderful knowledge with the people around me. What I had learned from my initial experience with acupuncture was that it works!
As I continued to heal I wanted to know and learn more. I have always been a curious person so I wanted to understand how this fascinating medicine worked! So began my road to becoming an acupuncturist. I have experienced so much joy and satisfaction learning and executing this medicine that I will study it forever. As I've progressed in my learnings I discovered Functional Medicine and once again my curiosity was sparked. Now I'm on the journey of learning this fascinating medicine as well.
Functional medicine is a medical system that has evolved in the last 30 years. It emphasizes the biological uniqueness of each person – meaning treatments are highly individualized. When combining all my learnings of both functional medicine and traditional medicine, I am able to provide one of the most comprehensive ways of viewing your health. The ability to utilize medical lab testing and then partnering that with the visual, palpatory, and diagnostic tools of asian medicine that have been around for over 3000 years, I am able to see so much more than one can with either alone.
Together we will work as a team to improve your quality of life. As I provide you with a systematic guide and plan for your health, you will begin to implement long lasting changes that will get you feeling motivated and empowered. When following the work we do together, you will feel better, have more energy, and become so in tune with your body you will once again enjoy what it can do for you. I look forward to partnering with you on your health journey and can’t wait for you to love the feeling of being in your body again. My commitment to your health is paramount ◡̈ .
With the utmost grace and gratitude,
Dr. Julie Liang, DACM, Dipl. OM, L.Ac
