Anna Severn is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, specializing in reproductive health and pain management. Anna holds a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, as well as a special certification in Tui Na massage, which she readily incorporates into her treatments.
Anna is passionate about supporting her patients in their journey toward optimal health, and she feels very strongly that acupuncture and herbal medicine is a vital part of this process. She has developed a gentle yet effective acupuncture technique which serves her very well in achieving quick and lasting results. She nearly always includes some other form of hands-on therapy in her treatments, such as massage, prenatal massage or cupping, which augments the healing process, as well as the effects of pain relief and mental relaxation. Anna also provides her patients with nutrition, lifestyle, and herbal recommendations.
Reproductive health is an area of deep interest for Anna, and she works with women in all stages of life, and with a variety of conditions. These may include:
● Irregular periods
● Painful periods
● Fertility challenges
● Prenatal care
● Postnatal care
● Breastfeeding support
In addition, Anna treats all genders to provide support for many other conditions, such as acute and chronic pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestive complaints, skin issues, autoimmune conditions, and pathogenic diseases such as cold and flu.
Anna loves her work, and feels deeply honored to hold space for her patients and help them to attain a healthy and happy life. She is so pleased to be joining the team at Retreat Acupuncture and to be a part of such a lovely community of healers and patients.
