East-West Clinic Founder and Director
Marnie McCurdy, L.Ac., MS, CMT, FABORM
Marnie McCurdy is a licensed practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and nationally certified acupuncturist. She has had an active practice in the Bay area for the past 19 years. Her areas of specialty include gynecology, infertility, prenatal and postnatal care, chronic pain management and digestive health. On your first visit you can expect a thorough Chinese Medicine assessment, a review of blood labs and diet and a review of complaints possibly related to endocrine function. You may choose just acupuncture, but Marnie feels a comprehensive approach yields the best response.
When treating chronic pain Marnie draws upon her knowledge of movement. She earned her undergraduate degree in dance and went on to study Pilates Mat and movement analysis/re-education techniques such as the Alexander Method and Gokhale Method. She often finds that chronic pain requires a multi-faceted approach of movement rehab, acupuncture, bodywork and overall relaxation of the nervous system.
In the field of obstetrics, she enjoys sharing her experiences of how effective acupuncture can be in treating some of the common conditions that arise during pregnancy. She is a caring partner on the path to Motherhood, and is co-founder of Golden Month Mothercare- https://www.goldenmonthmothercare.com./
Marnie has been a certified massage therapist for 20 years and has trained in several modalities. She has a limited number of extended Massage/Acupuncture “Combo” appointments available.
