Alina Sepeda is a licensed acupuncturist in San Diego with a Masters of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. She has always been interested in health and fitness in some way or another and trying to recruit people to explore those areas of life with her.
Alina has gone through many phases in her journey towards finding what exactly is optimum health for her – from nutrition, to fitness, and eventually, into Chinese Medicine.
While working in Costa Rica that, she had her calling to become a medical practitioner. Alina returned home and started looking into western medical schools – quickly realizing that conventional, western medicine, while very effective for immediate trauma and surgeries, had become on an everyday level governed by pharmaceutical companies. She was disheartened as began to research and learn the number of people in this country taking pharmaceutical drugs to not eradicate their diseases, but simply to make them more tolerable. This wasn’t medicine to her.
Alina started researching other medical systems and found the extensive lineage of Chinese medicine to be irrefutable. She knew then that Chinese medicine was something that needed to be brought to more people. So, she studied and graduated from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, California. Alina also spent several years studying under a Chinese medicine master to further understand this powerful medicine.
