Yuka Hagiwara Bio:

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Yuka was exposed to healing arts as young girl when her mother, a shiatsu practitioner, taught her about meridian theory, and how to massage certain points to feel better. After graduating from Douglass College at Rutgers University, Yuka had a formative experience working with Tibetan Refugees in northern India. Seeing first hand how effective regular access to acupuncture could be, Yuka decided to formally study acupuncture and Chinese herbology upon her return to the states.

Yuka started her acupuncture training at the New York Campus of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM), and graduated from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco, California. Her internships included St. Vincent’s HIV clinic in New York City, as well as the St. James Infirmary and ACTCM’s community ear clinic in San Francisco. She is licensed to practice in New York State, and is board certified in Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM. Her professional interests include community medicine, women’s health and pain management.

Outside of Olo Acupuncture, Yuka’s interests include spending time with her friends and family, travel and a life long love of photography.
