Omar Chaudhry, L.Ac, MTCM/DTCM

Omar Chaudhry is the founder of Watsonville Acupuncture, a licensed acupuncturist in the state of California, and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a focus on pain management, chronic illness, addiction recovery, dietary/herbal recommendations and longevity.  

The son of South Korean and Pakistani immigrants, Omar grew up on the East Coast and was introduced to Herbal Medicine at a young age under the care of his Korean grandparents.  His treatment style combines multiple modalities as he's found that healing is best encouraged using a combination of approaches including herbal and dietary recommendations.
