About this pro

Hello, I have practiced acupuncture and oriental medicine since 1984 and recently moved to the Bay Area. I also have several certifications in nutritional therapy which is a great adjunct to acupunture. After all, disease begins in the gut. Let's get to the bottom of your condition and find the right diet for your needs. I focus on your digestion and aim to improve its function which leads to better health. 

I love working with people and helping them to find optimal health for themselves.

    After much damage to my digestive system from pain medication, Dr. Lane's dietary and supplement remedies restored its good function. In addition, her Chinese herbs helped diminish my allergies. She is extremely knowledgeable, very kind and professional.
