Dr. Shani Cooper
Dr. Shani Cooper, LAc, DACM is a Naval Veteran, Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, and began studying the human body in 2010, pursuing an education in bodywork at International Professional School of Bodywork. While studying she was exposed to Traditional East Asian Medical theory and a light bulb went off. Her passion for the medicine led her to attain a Masters Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) where she did extensive clinical work, both in a traditional clinical setting, as well as work within the San Diego community treating veterans and the underserved community. Her passion leads her to continue her education, studying with highly experienced medical professionals, both Eastern and Western, who are focused changing the way the medical profession treats chronic issues that have not been well understood within the conventional Western Medical paradigm alone.
With the opening of Root & Soul, she is excited to have the opportunity to create her Traditional East Asian Medical Practice, focused on treating each patient as a whole being and bringing her experience and expertise to the community.
