Amanda Moler L.AcCommunity - San Francisco
Education: Antioch College, The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Amanda works closely with western practitioners, including OB/GYNs, reproductive endocrinologists, and she is intimately familiar with tests, medications, schedules, and procedures associated with Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Amanda also draws on her vast network of referrals, including medical doctors, and many kinds of therapists and body workers. As a fellow of the board of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, she is recognized to treat complex fertility cases. At the heart of her work is a deeply trusting relationship with her patients, one that naturally allows the healing response to happen faster. This synergistic bond gives the space for women to truly listen and understand what their body is telling them. Her goal is to stay open to their energy, and guide them to where they need to go.
Amanda has spent a significant amount of time with powerful female healers. In India, she studied traditional medicine and with local healers treating patients with herbal medicine. Deep in the forests of Burma, she studied with meditation masters in silent retreat for months at a time. During acupuncture school, she had several internships at clinics that focused on women’s health, giving her hands-on experience and a deep appreciation of this work and a desire to carry it forward.
With this experience, she carries deep reverence of the complexity of women’s bodies, and the integration that happens when woman’s systems come into balance in order to conceive and carry a healthy pregnancy. Ultimately, her passion lies not just in specific outcomes for her patients, but in helping them unfold into overall greater health and well-being. Amanda is currently pioneering a new business model in health care - one that is collaborative and working towards a shared power structure. She has a deep desire to bring forth a model that is built with relationships characterized by mutual trust, integrity and accountability - in support of creating more community resilience. It is her hope that this will make it easier for acupuncturists, and other health professionals, especially single-mothers, to create their own businesses. When she’s not working, Amanda spends time riding bikes with her 6-year old son, plays the ukulele, and tends her land and garden.
