Martha E. Hall, Acupuncturist and Herbalist, is California State Licensed and National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) certified. She is also a primary care provider in California. Martha holds a Master’s of Science Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from an accredited, four-year acupuncture school, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA. She performed over 3,428 hours of training in acupuncture, herbal prescriptions and Western medical assessment, as well as 1075 hours of internship.
Martha also studied at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, China, completing the International Traditional Chinese Medicine Training Program of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. She assisted doctors in Chengdu Hospital--where acupuncture is used along with western medicine. Her 100-hour externship in China involved working with cardiology, ear nose and throat, pulmonary disorders, and stroke patients. She administered acupuncture, as well as prescribing medicinal herbs and herbal formulas.
Martha describes what motivates her to provide such caring professional services. “Ever since I was young, I was always in love with natural medicine. If we ever got sick my mom would go to the back yard, snip some herbs and boil them to make us feel better. She would use food as medicine for whatever needed to be cured. If we were starting to get sick, she would make a pot of chicken soup and add herbs and vegetables depending on our symptoms. The gift of natural healing runs in the family. My aunt was the town healer in Culiacan, Sinaloa Mexico. She would treat all who came to her with herbs and other modalities for any ailment. I feel very fortunate to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine, honoring my mother and aunt by continuing the legacy that they began.”
In addition to acupuncture, Martha provides moxibustion (moxa), cupping, electro-acupuncture (e-stim) and tuina massage, as well as prescribing herbs, herbal formulas and medicinal teas. She serves all facets of the community, even elderly and bed-ridden patients—offering house calls as needed. She speaks and reads fluent Spanish.
Her professional passion is to promote acupuncture and clinical excellence. When not actively involved in her work, Martha balances her life by running, reading and spending time with her friends and family, including her husband, son and daughter.
