Larson Acupuncture specializes in treating women’s health conditions, including fertility and perinatal care, dermatology, chronic and acute pain, and stress. We are located in San Francisco.
Bria Larson, MS, LAc, is an ally in wellness and healing. Using the time-tested tools of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Maya Abdominal Therapy, her practice specializes in women’s health from adolescence through menopause and beyond. Bria’s interest in women’s health began with her work with adolescent girls and women in her former career as an outdoor educator and back country guide, and her passion for helping women find their healthiest and most complete selves continues to grow each year.
Bria completed her Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco, and is licensed as an acupuncturist in the state of California. Bria also holds national certification in acupuncture and Chinese herbology from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She earned her BA in Art History from Williams College, MA.
Clinical training includes internships at the California Pacific Medical Center’s Stroke and Rehabilitation Center as well as the ACTCM Community Clinics. Advanced studies include Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Renewal with Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, and a two-year post-graduate specialization certificate in Traditional Chinese Medicine Dermatology with Dr Jialing Yu.
Bria is a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), a certification held by only a small number of acupuncturists throughout the country. She is also a member of the Northern California Fertility Group, a coalition of Chinese Medicine practitioners who focus on fertility and reproductive health.
In addition to her Chinese medicine training, Bria is also a trained practitioner of Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy as taught by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN.
When not in clinic, Bria enjoys spending time hiking, dancing or in the garden with her family.
