I feel lucky to have met Dr. Khalsa about 3 years ago. Dr. Khalsa is very personable and spends a lot of time getting to know you as well as your family which is so rare when it comes to patient care. I enjoy seeing Dr. Khalsa because we spend time talking about what is going on with life and that helps her figure out the acupuncture treatment needed. She genuinely wants to help her patients and I trust her expertise and her acupuncture knowledge. She has been treating me for a variety of health issues from gallstones to digestive issues to chronic fatigue. My overall health has improved, thanks to Dr. Khalsa’s genuine care and treatment. I consider her a friend as well as my doctor and I would highly recommend Dr. Khalsa for acupuncture treatment.
Moreover, Dr. Khalsa is patient, kind, and flexible. She puts people of all ages at ease. My daughter is scared of needles, and Dr. Khalsa has offered creative solutions (like cupping, accupressure, earseeds, etc) that do no involve needles. The treatment is always a collaborative process where my daughter feels empowered in her own health. My daughter feels better after treatment, and she leaves feeling energized and in a good mood. It’s such a good feeling to reclaim health.
Dr. Khalsa is a warm and caring listener. She gives me her full attention and takes my concerns seriously. She was the first person understand and address the root issue of some of my strange muscle cramps and neuropathy. She treated and resolved my hot flashes, anxiety, insomnia, and much more. She is adept at handling complex cases. Dr. Khalsa has also taught me how my diet impacts my health. I thought that I understood a lot about nutrition, but she has taught me TCM nutrition principles that have been a powerful tool in my recovery. Each day I feel stronger, and I am optimistic that I will have a full recovery from autoimmune disease.
Through practicing the ancient art of Kung Fu and watching her mother incorporate herbal medicinals into daily life Dr. Khalsa developed an interest in a lifestyle based on mind-body-soul from a young age.
She first encountered acupuncture through witnessing how this therapy helped her father’s health with Asthma and allergies. This exposure helped her decide to pursue a BSc in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) specialized in acupuncture at the University of Westminister. It was here that she had written a dissertation on the power of touch.
Kulbir Khalsa has a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) and Master’s in TCM which she earned at Five Branches University. Her doctorate capstone was written on the effects of acupuncture on cyst and tumor reduction.
She has over 10 years of experience practicing acupuncture and herbal medicine in London and California. Dr. Khalsa is currently a professor at Five Branches University, teaching clinical acupuncture skills, techniques and foundational theory.
She has been fortunate to work in a variety of settings, including community clinics, student clinics and multidisciplinary practices. She is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of California and has adopted an integrative approach to Traditional Chinese Medicine which combines ancient wisdom with conventional biomedical knowledge.
She uses acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, food therapy and body movement to restore balance to the body and treat a variety of common ailments. She has a special interest in treating women’s health, autoimmune conditions, digestive issues, chronic pain and sleep disorders.
She believes you deserve perfect health and wellbeing and wants her patients to take control of their lives and help themselves achieve optimal health.
