She has been a board certified Acupuncturist in the state of California since January of 2000.
Later, Dr. Barajas received her doctorate degree from Yo San University in Los Angeles. During her time at Yo San, she had the opportunity to conduct her own original research in the field, and also had the privilege to do a clinical internship at one of the larges TCM hospitals in the world in Chengdu, China. There, she participated in grand rounds, and observed first hand how acupuncture can be integrated in a modern hospital setting.
From the beginning of her career, Dr. Barajas enjoyed practicing acupuncture in a Western medical setting. She believes that it is important to integrate alternative medicine into Western medicine, to allow for a comprehensive holistic treatment approach. Both areas of medicine have important roles, and we must not disregard either one.
