Heather Huber is a Nationally-Certified and California Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist and Certified Massage Therapist. With 17 years of holistic bodywork experience she offers a unique treatment style that incorporates eastern and western philosophies of health—combining skilled, intuitive touch with a natural aptitude for orthopedic, sports medicine and pain management.
Heather’s approach to treatment is a result of her varied professional work and academic training—including ACTCM Community Clinic, ACTCM Auricular Clinic, California Pacific Medical Center Stroke and Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center, and Berkeley Primary Care. She pursued advanced studies at Zheijang Chinese Medical University in China. She also studied with Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan for over three years, helping to inform her main focus and additional clinical focuses: digestion, poor sleep, headaches, women’s health, mental and emotional conditions and addiction.
Beyond her professional training and experience, Heather’s practice is greatly influenced by her background as a lifelong athlete, holistic health advocate, and her passion for yoga and meditation. Not only a health care provider, Heather is an avid runner, yogini, ocean swimmer, world traveler and animal lover.
