Welcome to Floyd Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine based in Sacramento, California.
I graduated from Guilford College in North Carolina with a BA in East Asian Studies and a concentration in Mandarin. While in College I studied abroad in Beijing and that is what initially sparked my interest in Chinese Medicine. I knew I had to go back to China and, after I graduated, spent 3 years in China teaching, traveling, and studying Chinese Medicine. While living abroad I received acupuncture and Chinese herbs whenever I was sick. I was so interested in my experience with Chinese medicine I spent my free time in local clinics practicing my Mandarin and shadowing practitioners.
After returning, I put the puzzle pieces together and realized Chinese Medicine was my passion, that everything in my past led up to this profession. I enrolled at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego where I graduated magna cum laude with a Masters in Traditional Chinese and Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) and a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM).
While in San Diego, I worked at Rady's Children's hospital in the chronic pain and oncology pediatric unit. I also worked at UCSD Cancer Center providing integrative treatment to oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. I have a passion for volunteering and have had the opportunity to work with the underserved populations of San Diego, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.
I specialize in women’s reproductive and menstrual health; by using acupuncture, herbs, and necessary lifestyle changes your menses can become regulated, a vital symbol of hormone health and overall wellness. I've helped hundreds of families through their fertility journey, both with natural and assisted reproductive methods, such as IUI and IVF. I'm a firm advocate for an integrated medical future and work with numerous fertility centers in the area, helping support my patients emotionally and physically throughout what can be a demanding fertility journey.
As a doctor of acupuncture and herbal medicine, I have created my own Chinese herbal product line Dr. Floyd Rx . I use herbs in conjunction with acupuncture with most of my patients and have found that patients who do both have faster results. Dr. Floyd Rx has a formula for every stage and age of a woman’s journey; from unpleasant or irregular periods, fertility and postpartum, or menopause, there is a formula to help. I also have a wellness herbal line to help ease the stressors of the modern day, with formulas to address sleep, stress, overthinking, irritability, and immunity. Interested in my online herbal shop?

In addition to women’s reproductive health, I also focus on mental/emotional health, and pain management. I approach patient care with love, humor, and kindness. I grew up in a large, extroverted family that prioritizes humor as a malady for all ailments. When I am not working I am outdoors hiking, camping, and exercising. I truly believe physical health and maintenance contributes directly to each person’s mental and spiritual health. I incorporate fitness, dietary, and health regimens into my treatments whenever necessary, providing patients the opportunity for a true lifestyle change.
