Genevieve Le Goff practices an ancient form of Chinese medicine that has its roots in the Classical Era of Chinese history (Han dynasty and prior).
Classical Chinese medicine views the human body as a microcosm of the universe. Therefore the health of the planet is inseparable from ours. In keeping with the highest precepts of the classical Chinese medical canons, a good doctor seeks to understand physiology in an ecological fashion, and to honor the roots of these insights by the observation and protection of natural rhythms.
After graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a BA in Environmental Studies & Ecology, and the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences with a MS in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Genevieve received special training in midwifery and gynecology, as well as extensive post-graduate training in Classical Herbal Formulation at the Hunyuan Institute and at the Institute of Classical East-Asian Medicine. She practices in the Fire Spirit lineage of Tian (Bawei) Heming, who practiced in the tradition of Zhang Zhong Jing's Shang Han Za Bing Lun. Her practice focuses mostly on fetal-maternal medicine. She is constantly engaged in research and study to further her ability to help her patients.
Genevieve Le Goff is the mother of two wonderful girls, both born at home. She is a Reiki practitioner at the master level, and has been an herbal apothecary since 1998. She also directs a State and Nationally accredited Continuing Education Program for licensed acupuncturists, bringing prominent scholars, sinologists and clinicians to the Bay Area to teach seminars.
Testimonials from classes Genevieve previously taught:
"Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us!"
"This was the BEST class I've been to yet on pregnancy and Chinese Medicine! Genevieve, you have so much valuable knowledge and experience with treating pregnant mamas and it was really a treat to learn from you! Thank you!"
"Thank you so much for offering the class, it was the best class I've ever taken on Chinese Medicine related to women's health! I really valued how much knowledge and also personal experience you shared. I treat a lot of pregnant mamas in my clinic, and I feel a lot more confident now using herbs. I'd like to learn more about the fundamentals of Classical Chinese Medicine, even just the basics are unfamiliar and confusing to me. If you decide to offer a class on that in the future, I'd definitely be interested! Thanks again!"
