Charlene Lincoln, founder of Acupuncture For The People, is licensed with the California Board of Acupuncture. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine. After graduation she completed a 7 month internship at the renowned Beijing University Hospital. Upon returning to the U.S. she began her 14 year career working for a Medical Group specializing in chronic pain. Charlene developed her amazing skill of being able to quickly diagnose and treat difficult to treat pain conditions. Her patients loved her warmth, understanding and empathetic nature and her ability to get them relief quickly. She regularly received the feedback that of out of everything, acupuncture was the treatment that was giving them the most effective pain relief.
Charlene became interested in acupuncture, natural medicine, nutrition and yoga in her 20’s. Battling with weight, hormonal issues, allergies and chronic pain from a car accident left her searching for answers. By feeding her body proper nutrition, getting acupuncture regularly and incorporating yoga she was able to transform her health.
For the last 14 years Charlene has helped countless people get out of the horrible cycle of pain, hormonal imbalances, allergies and food sensitivities and regain their health and vitality. When you work with Charlene you will find that she truly cares about your well-being.
Charlene’s belief, passion and love for acupuncture and herbs grows more and more as she sees it improve the quality of her patient’s lives. She never ceases to be amazed at how extremely effective acupuncture and herbs are for healing many health conditions without any negative side effects. The only frustration she has had is how cost prohibitive acupuncture can be for a majority of us. This is why Charlene created Acupuncture For The People. She wanted a place where the community of Santa Barbara could easily access natural, effective and safe care at a fraction of the cost of most healthcare clinics. A place where people felt heard and nurtured and could seek solace in their everyday busy lives. Acupuncture Santa Barbara
