Olanani AcuOasis provides traditional acupuncture for pain relief, stress relief, holistic health and well-being, as well as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, massage, cupping, and herbal medicine with affordable rates in a beautiful, community-style clinic.
We believe that beauty is found in a celebration of life and the appreciation of what is natural and authentic to ourselves. Our work is based on the knowledge that inherent beauty resides in each person as a state of being - reflecting a whole and healthy intersection of mind, body and spirit, connection to self, community and the natural environment. To unleash this potential in each of our patients, we offer affordable and sliding-scale rates for acupuncture to our community for natural, anti-aging and holistic health treatments. Our treatments are administered in a tranquil, open-space setting, where patients receive support for their own personal health journey, but also benefit from the collective energy of healing.

Alicia Yang studied acupuncture in Honolulu, Hawai’i from the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. As a childhood cancer survivor Chinese medicine was an integral part of how her family confronted illnesses. Alicia’s background comes through a passion for working with communities for social justice and empowering women survivors of abuse and violence. While studying Chinese medicine in Honolulu, she worked alongside communities for the prevention of domestic violence. Alicia believes in empowering women to their full potential by awakening their self-confidence and internal healing power. Her interests include facial and cosmetic acupuncture, autoimmune diseases, women’s health, sports orthopedics acupuncture, Chinese nutritional therapy and herbal medicine. She has trained with Dr. Shi Zhong Xiao, a leading Chinese doctor in Honolulu who began his practice in China in 1966, as well as apprenticed with Joe Bright, founder of Kama'aina Acupuncture in Honolulu, and Whitfield Reaves, a leader and one of the first acupuncturists in the West to establish the field of sports orthopedics acupuncture. In addition, she has received training from two pioneers in the field of cosmetic acupuncture. Her favorite quote about beauty is that “the most profound beauty is revealed in the balance of nature.” To balance her own health as well as integrate the knowledge of the role of Qi in Chinese Medicine, Alicia practices Medical Qigong from the teachings of Leon Letoto.
