ABOUT DR. COELHO

IMG_9792 2.jpg

I'm Dr. MaryAlice Coelho.

You can call me MaryAlice. 


I am a Licensed Acupuncturist living in San Diego and lover of nature. I obtained my Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in 2018 from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I am forever grateful for the mentors, colleagues, patients and education the institution has given me.


While in school, I had the opportunity to provide care for chemotherapy and radiation patients at the UCSD Cancer Research Institute in Encinitas. I treated the underserved community, in collaboration with UCSD medical students, at the Pacific Beach Free Clinic. And I helped manage pain for the senior community at the Free Seniors Clinic in downtown San Diego.


And I did this all with… Acupuncture!


I am an advocate for preventative health. Therefore, I don’t only offer acupuncture, moxibustion, and cupping, but I also offer lifestyle and nutritional recommendations to help you in preventing dis-ease. I believe the body wants and can heal its self. I simply want to help guide your body into that healing state. If I’m not in the office, you’ll likely find me at the beach or in my garden.

 

CHENGDU, CHINA

In 2016, I had the fascinating experience to study in China at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. During my stay, I was immersed into the culture and exposed to the beauty of acupuncture from the source; including the departments of Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Tuina and TCM Internal Medicine.
