Barbara Burns, L.Ac., is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist who has practiced in Arcadia and Sierra Madre for the past seventeen years. Prior to opening her practice, she had careers as a secondary school teacher and as a national media spokesperson for a Beverly Hills-based hotel chain.

Voted “Best Acupuncturist” by the San Gabriel Valley Core Media Group weekly newspaper readership three years in a row, and Pasadena Weekly's 2010 & 2011 "Best Acupuncturist", Barbara was graduated from SAMRA University, the oldest acupuncture college in the country, with a perfect 4.0 academic average. Since graduation in l996, she has pursued specialized studies in fertility, musculoskeletal conditions, including a year-long, 200-hour course in orthopedic acupuncture, and is a certified NADA practitioner.

In addition, Barbara is a trained practitioner who offers Transformations 360: Weight Release & Pre-diabetes program for stuctured, life-long weight loss and health goals. Please call the office to discuss if the program is a good fit for you.

What’s Special About this Clinic? Why Go See Barbara?

Patients appreciate Barbara’s ability to listen to their health concerns, carefully assess their diagnostic picture, and clearly communicate the appropriate theories and treatment practices needed for recovery. Since Traditional Chinese Medicine is a powerful wellness tool, most people face only two concerns: Will it help me?” and “Can I afford it?” Barbara is happy to talk to you personally about the first concern, and her office manager, Lynette, will discuss the second.

What Kinds of Problems Does Barbara Help?

Many of the people who come to see Barbara are at the end of their rope. They’ve been through the revolving medical door over and over again. They have diagnoses – a medical name for their problem -- but no solutions except maybe drugs or surgery. And maybe they don’t have those options either.

Often patients come with chronic complaints – inexplicable nerve pains, years of insomnia, arthritic knees, intractable heartburn, disabling anxiety or overwhelm and stress. They have to go on with these conditions but it takes a daily nick out of their quality of life. Others want help with temporary or acute complaints like seasonal sinus headaches, fatigue, hot flashes or dizziness. And they don’t realize that this medicine can diminish and often relieve these nagging symptoms. And that’s who Barbara sees.

Hours of operation:
Tues-Thurs 9:30-5:45 (last appointment)
Saturdays 10:00-4:00
