About Viveka Rucker

When you feel better, and reclaim your health, your whole experience of life in general improves. Your spirits lift, and suddenly all kinds of new possibilities open up for who you can be and how you can live your life. Facilitating and witnessing this transition in people is my joy and pleasure.

I look forward to helping you with your specific problems and then guide you through maintaining your health. Wouldn't life be so much more fun at any age if you could feel better physically, mentally and emotionally, sleep better, digest better, have better energy, move with greater ease, and realize your goals? As your body regains function, resilience and renewed energy, your mind calms and clears, and you experience well-being.

This path of care is not just an investment in a treatment, it is an enriching investment in yourself and the quality of your life now and as you age.

My private practice is The Qi Center and together with Linda Read-Shelby, L.Ac. we are the founders and Clinical Directors of the Healing Compass & Qi Center in Woodland Hills, California.

We are licensed in Chinese medicine and herbology, as well as certified in clinical nutrition.We utilize acupuncture, whole food nutrition, dietary and lifestyle support as well as herbal medicine.

Our Center is unique in that we offer weekly classes in Medical Qi Gong, Kundalini Meditation, Gentle and Restorative Yoga as additional support for healing and ongoing health maintenance.

I received my Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University, Los Angeles, CA, graduating with honors in 2002. I am both State licensed and Nationally Board Certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture and in Chinese Herbology. I received my Applied Clinical Nutrition training through Southern California University of Health Sciences 2011 to present and will receive my certificate in summer 2014. I have practiced Qi Gong for nearly 2 decades and teach a Medical Qi Gong class in our beautiful studio at Healing Compass & Qi Center in Woodland Hills.
