Paloma Fataar L.Ac. MATCM

Paloma is a board certified physician of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in the state of California. She completed her clinical training at the Yo San University Clinic treating a wide array of conditions and patients of all ages. In addition, she received specialized training in pain management and orthopedic disorders during her internship at the Venice Family Clinic's Simms/Mann Wellness Center.

As acupuncture and qi gong have played a pivotal role in her own healing path, Paloma was inspired to pursue an in depth study of Chinese medicine in order to share all the benefits that TCM has to offer. As a practitioner, she is dedicated to addressing patients' primary health concerns as well as helping to restore balance to their overall health and vitality. Paloma aims to provide a supportive environment for patients to make changes to their habits and lifestyle that can be challenging to initiate alone. Her clinical focus include autoimmune disease management, women's health, digestive health and mental/emotional wellness.
