Dr. Anne Reed

I was first introduced to holistic therapies in 1993, when I sustained an injury while playing volleyball. I wasn't recovering at the rate I wanted - in fact, I was a little afraid I might never fully recover - so when a friend of mine recommended acupuncture, I was willing to give it a try.

I was amazed by how relaxed I felt during and after the treatment - and by the rapid results. It wasn't long before I regained full mobility, and was able to enjoy my former level of activity. Acupuncture led me to homeopathy, which then led me to explore many other varieties of holistic medicine. After seeing so many instances of the curative power of holistic medicine, I realized that I wanted to integrate these therapies into my practice.

I earned an undergraduate degree from Mills College in 1994, and graduated from UC Davis Veterinary School in 1998. In 2000, I became certified in veterinary acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. I've also completed Dr. Richard Pitcairn's course in both Basic and Advanced Veterinary Homeopathy, and the Chi Institute's Advanced Herbal Medicine course, taught by Dr. Huisheng Xie.
