A new acupuncturist has joined our team at Community Acupuncture and Natural Health, Ryder Johanson. Ryder will be adding an additional day of community acupuncture to our schedule by opening hours on Fridays beginning this week on May 26th, from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. That's 6 days a week now that we offer our low cost acupuncture at only $25 per session! Here's more about Ryder and his experience as an acupuncturist:
Ryder Johanson is an acupuncturist and herbalist specializing in treating stress-related conditions, pain, and chronic diseases. While in law school, he developed a passion for meditation, qigong, and eventually acupuncture. Seeking to learn more about his own health issues, he began the extensive study of various acupuncture and energy healing systems from China, Japan, Korea, Europe, and the US. Ryder is also trained in nutrition, with a perspective rooted both in traditional healthy diets and modern scientific research. He gained extensive experience in community-style acupuncture while practicing at the Homeless Advocacy Program in San Francisco. Ryder also studied Chinese herbal medicine with Hua Ling Xu, with an emphasis in gynecology.
Ryder earned a master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA. Prior to that, he earned a JD from UC Hastings College of the Law and briefly worked at a small law firm specializing in serving independent film makers. He also received a BA in Anthropology from UC Berkeley.
Ryder’s approach is based on compassionate listening, heeding the wisdom of past sages, and following his own intuition. Ultimately, his aim is to create the best possible situation for each person’s body to heal itself.
