Meet Our Acupuncturists, L.Ac.

Dr. Gigi Shames, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, NHD #AC12544Dr. Gigi Shames, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, NHD #AC12544

Dr. Gigi is a graduate of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA. When she was a little girl, her physician dad said with a sparkle in his eye “Now remember that when you grow up you can be any…any…kind of doctor you want to be!” That joke still makes her laugh to this day. She has always loved being involved in medicine. She initially became a Massage Therapist and then pursued her Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. She also holds a Doctorate of Natural Health from Clayton College in Birmingham, AL. 


Her favorite part about being an acupuncturist is that she feels it is nearly as relaxing to practice acupuncture as it is to receive it. She’s seen many nurses and MD’s burnout in practice and finds that many acupuncturists enjoy it more and more as time goes on and they become more profound in their understanding. 


She decided to join the Modern Acupuncture team to be able to use Chinese Medicine to help a larger population of patients. She is also very excited about the Distal Needling Acupuncture method. 


Outside of work, Dr. Gigi loves spending time with family. She says that family and friends are life’s greatest treasures. She also loves bicycling and woodworking and will happily admit that there are times that reality TV really hits the spot!

Sarah Hart, L.Ac. #18257Sarah Hart, L.Ac. #18257

Sarah is a graduate of the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College. She decided to study acupuncture because she loves the way it brings the body back into balance. 


Her favorite part of being an acupuncturist is seeing her patients feel better and hearing about how they reconnect to hobbies and activities that bring them joy. 


She decided to join the Modern Acupuncture team because she wants to help make acupuncture a consistent routine for everyone. She thinks this model makes it convenient and easy for people to do. 


When she isn’t treating patients, Sarah enjoys bicycle touring (she rode her bike from Seattle to Maine!) and Kayaking.

Grace Powell, L.Ac., DACM #18403Grace Powell, L.Ac., DACM #18403

Grace is a graduate of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego. When she was 8, she visited a Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic with her mother. There was a wall of herbs from floor to ceiling, each in their own jar. She can still recall the earthy smell of all of the herbs mingled together. She remembers being fascinated with the treatment that her mother received and thought to herself, “this is what I want to do when I grow up." Now, as a practitioner, her favorite part is helping others transition into better health and well being.


Grace joined the Modern Acupuncture team because she loves the accessibility and convenience of the clinics and working in an environment where she gets to meet a lot of people and help them feel like their best selves.


When she isn’t treating patients, you can find Grace practicing Aikido. She is also a member of her community volunteer fire department. Her other hobbies include meditation and reading.



Saiko Oki L.Ac.Saiko Oki L.Ac.

Saiko is a graduate of ACTCM at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Originally from Japan, she has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area where she has studied and worked consistently in the healing arts with her practice being a steady development of complementary modalities. She decided to be an acupuncturist because she believes a holistic approach to medicine is essential to assist people for their optimal health.

Saiko chose to join the Modern Acupuncture team because the convenience and modern clinic setting gives people the opportunity to receive the benefit of ancient traditional medicine. 

In her private time, Saiko enjoys traveling, being outdoors surrounded by nature and meditation.
