GRACE KILLPACK L.AC
Grace Killpack is a licensed Acupuncturist who focuses on fertility, women’s health, and psycho-emotional imbalance. She finds honesty, empathy, and compassion to be the most valuable qualities in helping her patients. Her passion in supporting women stems from her own challenges with infertility and the stigma surrounding mental and emotional health.
Grace received her Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2015, and soon started her practice in San Francisco, where she lived with her husband and two rescue dogs, SheRa and Jerry. They moved to the Lamorinda area after their 9-year journey with infertility concluded with a healthy baby boy.
Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country. It is even more popular in other countries.
