Genevieve Le Goff, L.Ac., is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist. She practices an ancient form of Chinese medicine that has its roots in the Classical Era of Chinese history (Han dynasty and prior). She specializes in applying classical Chinese medicine to pregnancy and birthing in partnership with several local midwives.
Classical Chinese medicine views the human body as a microcosm of the universe. Therefore the health of the planet is inseparable from ours. In keeping with the highest precepts of the classical Chinese medical canons, a good doctor seeks to understand physiology in an ecological fashion, and to honor the roots of these insights by the observation and protection of natural rhythms.
After graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a BA in Environmental Studies & Ecology, and the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences with a MS in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Genevieve received extensive post-graduate training in Classical Herbal Formulation from the Institute of Classical East-Asian Medicine. This formulation system is in the lineage of Tian He Ming, who practiced in the tradition of Zhang Zhong Jing's Shang Han Za Bing Lun. She is constantly engaged in research and study to further her ability to help her patients, and is now pursuing a second post-graduate degree at the Hunyuan Institute.
She also received special training in midwifery and gynecology, is a Reiki practitioner at the master level, has been an herbal apothecary since 1998, and directs a State accredited Continuing Education Program for licensed acupuncturists, bringing prominent scholars, sinologists and clinicians to the San Francisco Bay Area. Genevieve is the mother of two wonderful little girls. She has run the Between Heaven & Earth Community Supported Acupuncture (CSA) program, a cooperative of Marin Organic Farms, since 2002.
