Tanja Dehne L.Ac
I’m a first-generation American (Norwegian mom, German dad), a Bay Area native, and have been living in San Francisco now for about 15 years. I spent summers as a kid hanging out with my relatives in Norway, and seeing how things work over there informed my beliefs about what health care should and can be, ultimately, available for everyone.
While studying Chinese Medicine at ACTCM here in San Francisco, I had an opportunity to intern at their ear clinic. That was my first introduction into the environment of community healing and I loved it. I loved the variety of people I got to work with, and at the risk of sounding too new-agey, I loved the palpable sense of positive energy that filled the room with so many people working towards the common goal of feeling better. I feel passionate about acupuncture being accessible for everyone, as well as daily gratitude to be a part of the community acupuncture movement.
Outside of work I love spending time outdoors (particularly exploring the awesome natural beauty of California’s coastal areas), dining out, watching films, connecting with friends and experimenting with photography.
