About East County Acupuncture

Ida D. Candelaria, L.Ac.

I was inspired to become an acupuncturist by an experience I can only describe as a calling. At the time, I had no intention of seeking a career in Chinese Medicine and the thought of going back to school and tackling a Masters was dawnting. However, as you often hear "when all doors close and only one door is open," was my experience. It was an overwhelming knowing that this is where I belonged and I have never looked back.

I completed a Masters program in Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 1996 followed by a two year residency in Womens Medicine. I have been in private practice for over twenty years and love what I do.

I enjoy treating a wide varity of conditions along with specializing in digestive disorders, pain management and hormonal imbalance.

I believe that promoting wellness along with gentle and effective care, people can be inspired to improve and transform their quality of life.
