Pamela Grant holds a Masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine and has been in practice since 2003. She is licensed to practice acupuncture and herbs by the California Acupuncture Board and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.)
She has studied lymphatic drainage therapy with Alan Mill at the Center for Lymphatic Therapy in Santa Barbara and has been using lymphatic drainage protocols with her patients since 2008.
She is a certified Sheng Zhen Meditation teacher, holds regular qigong classes locally, and continues her studies, as well as volunteer work, with Master Li Junfeng, the Santa Barbara Sheng Zhen Society, and the International Sheng Zhen Society.
She has studied functional medicine and functional blood chemistry extensively with Dr. Datis Kharrazian. Pamela incorporates many modalities into an acupuncture session, depending up the needs of the client, including healing movement (Sheng Zhen Meditation), German Auricular Medicine, allergy desensitization, lymphatic drainage, dietary counseling, lab evaluation, Life Wave Patch Technology and aromatherapy.
Pamela’s focus is largely on internal medicine, especially long-term, chronic, “sub-clinical” and auto-immune disorders such as chronic pain, Hashimoto’s, Lupus, MS, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. This focus extends to unexplained secondary infertility issues. Pamela has examined the role of Traditional Chinese medicine and reproductive health: menstruation, libido, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and menopause.
In addition to her private practice, she works with her husband, Craig Penner, MFT, to further their work training therapists in Somatic Psychotherapy and EMDR (Natural Processing Trainings.) The philosophies embraced by this system of teaching coincide with Pamela's belief in how the body heals. www.naturalprocessing.org
