Michelle Wong, L.Ac

Michelle Wong is a physician of Traditional Chinese Medicine, licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and is fascinated by all things related to skin. She graduated from UCLA with Bachelor of Science, and then from Dongguk University, Los Angeles with her Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine in 2011, and has studied in both Beijing and Seoul.

Michelle’s own journey in health began at age 4, when she was enlisted to massage her grandmother who had just arrived from the Philippines. The nightly ritual had relieved her of symptoms of emphysema, and she declared the young Michelle gifted with “Hilot” hands.

A former model, Michelle’s own healing of life-long skin and allergy problems were permanently healed with Chinese herbal medicine, pivoting her career trajectory from Western to Eastern medicine.

In her practice, Michelle combines cutting edge technology with ancient wisdom, and practical advice for modern day living. She utilizes gentle acupuncture techniques for pain relief, hormonal balance, emotional & facial rejuvenation. She specializes in difficult to treat dermatological conditions, through herbs and nutrition, and believes that health skin reflects a healthy body & spirit. Additional skills include cupping, dry needling, microneedling, electro-stimulation, gua sha & tui na. Most importantly, Michelle believes in empowering the patient to listen to their bodies so they can take the lead in managing their health and longevity.

When Michelle has some leisure time, she gardens herbs at the White House Place Learning Garden, listens to jazz, pickles, hikes, and co-leads Chumash medicine walks throughout Southern California.
