Michelle Hirsch

Michelle Hirsch is a California State Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) and Chinese Herbalist.  Prior to her studies of Chinese medicine, she spent 13 years devoted to organic farming and sustainable, community agriculture.  She graduated from the University of Michigan in 1997 with a major in Women’s Health, where she began to understand that a balanced, nutrient rich diet was the foundation to a healthy body.  She has farmed organic vegetables, flowers and herbs in Michigan, New Zealand, New Hampshire, and Northern California.

She received a Masters of Science in Chinese Medicine in 2009 at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences (ACCHS).  Since then she has been devoted to deepening her study of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, with  special interest in women’s fertility and digestive issues.  Her patients are likely to receive dietary advice along with an acupuncture treatment.  Currently she is also teaching for a TCM review class, and runs a community garden in her neighborhood in Berkeley.  She is an enthusiastic cyclist, and you will often see her smiling from her bike as she peddles through the hills and streets of the Bay Area.
