Olivia Fellus, L.A.c, Dipl.OM, is a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine herbalist.
She completed her baccalaureate in Russian Language and Literature from UCLA in 2009. After graduating Summa cum laude she completed her post-bac premedical studies at SDSU in 2011.
After taking an EMT course and working as an oral surgical technician for Dr. Hammond, she realized that Western medicine was not her calling. Eastern Medicine had intrigued her, for the ancient practice involves looking at the whole person, rather than isolated symptoms of disease. She enrolled in Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2012 and graduated with her Masters in Oriental Medicine in December 2015. She has been practicing massage therapy for three years.
As a massage therapist, she is trained in Tui Na, Swedish/Circulatory, Hara, Deep Tissue, and Thai styles of bodywork. Using her training in massage therapy and Oriental Medicine, she offers customized bodywork treatments to meet each of her clients specific needs.
During her medical training, Olivia interned in the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine Clinic, UCSD Owens Clinic, and at Radys Childrens hospital. These experiences have exposed her to a variety of patients and ailments, sharpening and widening her skills as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine.
Additionally, Olivia Fellus has had the honor of assisting and shadowing the renowned Dr. Zev Rosenberg, practitioner of classical Chinese medicine, in his clinic for the last four years. She strives to apply the knowledge and diagnostic techniques she has acquired from one of the best Chinese herbalists in San Diego in her own practice.
She is excited to embark on her true calling as an acupuncturist and herbalist, using her medical training, skills, and developed intuition to heal others.
Olivia finds balance, inner peace, and joy not only in practicing the ancient healing arts of Chinese Medicine, but also in pursuing her passion for rock climbing, hiking and adventuring in the great outdoors.
