My name is Carmen Pomares. I am a licensed acupuncturist through the state of California. I grew up with a mother who introduced me to Chinese medicine (which I thought was crazy at the time). She gave me bitter and sweet herbs to help alleviate my colds and flu’s, and she brought me to a strong martial artist who healed my broken foot within 3 sessions. I was inspired by her and Chinese medicine.
Later I graduated from Academy of Chinese Culture Health and Sciences and obtained my Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine. During school I had the opportunity to study in China and followed the renowned Chinese herbalist Dr. Huang Huang of Nanjing, China.
I am currently employed at another community acupuncture clinic and through that facility I have seen hundreds of patients, giving me more experience than I anticipated after passing my licensure exam. I am forever grateful to my current workplace, my parents, friends, and husband who have helped me get to where I am.
I am also a mother of three. I speak fluent Spanish. I am a current resident of Sonoma County. I love to laugh or smile, read, enjoy any kind of physical activity, breathe, and relax with my amazing family.
