About Tiffany Elbogen
Tiffany is a California State licensed acupuncturist and graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, where she received a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. Her interest in the medicine and its origins led her to China, where she completed an internship and lecture series and received a Certificate of Traditional Chinese Medicine. While working at the Chengdu TCM hospital, she had the opportunity to follow the doctors on rounds in various specialized departments including pediatrics, cardiology, gastrointestinal, diabetes, respiratory disorders and pharmacy, seeing 20-30 patients per day.
A fan of the historic Chinese practice of apprenticing with a teacher, Tiffany has assisted under several of San Diego's most respected and experienced acupuncturists. As part of her clinical education she has worked at the downtown Senior's clinic and performed community-style acupuncture at local retirement homes, as well as at local health fairs educating on the health benefits of Chinese medicine.
Tiffany uses an integrative approach when treating her patients, utilizing Chinese Medicine's uniquely powerful insight to treat each patient as an individual and recognizing that the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects are interconnected. She also educates her patients on healthy diet and lifestyle choices as well as the prevention and recurrence of disease.
