Meet Our Acupuncturists, L.Ac.

Tae Suk Oh, L.Ac. #AC11972Tae Suk Oh, L.Ac. #AC11972

Tae is a graduate of South Baylo University. He became an acupuncturist because he grew up with Oriental Medicine in South Korea. He was already naturally familiar with acupuncture and herbs. He saw and experienced a lot of great things with acupuncture from a very young age. His favorite part of being an acupuncturist is that he can treat a variety of symptoms and conditions in a natural, safe way. He also likes that the equipment requirements are minimal and it enables him to treat in nearly any environment. 


Tae chose to be part of the Modern Acupuncture team because he like the clean and modern treatment space and that the methods used in the clinics are based on science and easy to implement. 


When he isn’t treating patients, Tae enjoys golfing and traveling.

Ashley Barandiaran, L.Ac. Ashley Barandiaran, L.Ac.

Ashley is a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. She was introduced to alternative medicine at a young age, and it inspired her to do something within the field. She was led to acupuncture after a personal experience with a neck injury. She saw the quality of care that acupuncture offered and its ability to integrate both Eastern and Western medicine. She feels that it genuinely treats all aspects required for healing body, mind, and spirit. 


Ashley loves being an acupuncturist because it is a preventative health modality that works to treat current medical needs naturally, safely, and effectively. She loves to empower her patients and also acts as a conduit for their healing journey. She finds it very rewarding to provide quality care by integrating Western science with Traditional Chinese Medicine, adapting a 3000-year-old medicine to current medical needs. 


Ashley joined the Modern Acupuncture team to have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and learn methods that are quick, science-based, and efficient. Working at Modern Acupuncture allows her to treat a greater number of patients while also educating and promoting the benefits of acupuncture to the public. 


When she isn’t treating patients, Ashley enjoys being active and outdoors. She loves to travel, camp, do Pilates, go to live music events and dance. Being a third-generation San Diegan, she also enjoys being involved in the community and volunteering. She is deeply connected to her Portuguese roots. She enjoys being on the Portuguese historical board and being a member of the folklore dance group.

I have started my first couple of sessions and I am very pleased with the results. I travel for a living and tend to have issues with sleep and tension throughout my entire body. Since then I have had excellent results! I highly recommend Modern Acupuncture, the bonus here is that the staff is incredibly nice and very helpful in helping aid you in a much happier, healthy lifestyle.
