Hi, I’mBrandi West
I’m a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist with a passion for helping people look and feel their best, naturally! I’m highly motivated to help you optimize your health, feel confident, and live a life full of joy. My clinical focus is treating anxiety and stress because, like many of you, this has been a personal struggle of mine. I also have a special interest in techniques to help you age gracefully with a holistic approach.
I initially arrived at this medicine because of arm pain but soon realized just how magnificent and all-encompassing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is. Because the acupuncturist took a systemic approach, not only did my arm pain resolve, my digestion improved, I slept more soundly, and my anxiety decreased. This experience of profound healing led me to study acupuncture and TCM.
I graduated from Pacific College of Health and Science in San Diego, California, earning my Master’s of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) degree. This four-year program included a broad range of training comprising of acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, gua sha and cupping, electrical stimulation, auricular acupuncture, tuina, nutrition, and clean needle technique. I am Nationally Board Certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I am also licensed in the State of Missouri. I hold a B.A. in Psychology and have a background in research.
When I am not working, or doing research, I enjoy cooking (and eating delicious food!), traveling, weight training, taking long walks with my pups, Murphy and Sadie, having kitchen dance parties with my husband and spending time with friends and family.
Come join me as we take an integrative approach for your healthcare and beauty needs. I look forward to assisting you in achieving your ultimate wellness. Let’s shine from the inside out, together!
