Sean is the owner of East Bay Acupuncture & Natural Medicine and a licensed acupuncturist. He specializes in Fertility & Reproductive Medicine and Orthopedics & Pain Management. He is one of only a few acupuncturists in California to hold dual board certifications by the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and the National Board of Acupuncture Orthopedics (DNBAO).
In addition to his master’s degree in Chinese Medicine, Sean completed a 300-hour post-graduate program in orthopedics at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles as well as advanced coursework and internship at Zhejiang TCM University in Hangzhou, China. In China, he spent time with Western and TCM trained doctors specializing in fertility, gynecology, cardiology, and dermatology.
Previously, Sean taught the Pain Management class at A.C.C.H.S., an Oakland, CA acupuncture college. In addition to practicing Chinese herbal medicine, Sean integrates Western and Ayurvedic herbal medicine into his practice when appropriate. These skills were deepened through a 2-year apprenticeship with Michael Tierra and a 6-month apprenticeship with Christopher Hobbs, both world-renowned authors on herbal medicine. Sean also taught yoga and meditation for 13 years, before making the decision to devote all of his professional time to his acupuncture practice. Before beginning training in acupuncture, Sean earned a B.A. in computer science from UC Santa Cruz and worked as a software engineer.
