Nalu Cooley

Owner and Founder of Nalu Healing Arts, Licensed Acupuncturist

Nalu received her Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Pacific College of Health & Science in 2015 in San Diego, CA. Her passion for the healing arts developed in her early 20’s when she attended massage school and fell in love with anatomy, physiology, the nervous system, and somatic healing. She then received her undergrad in Psychology along with pre-requisites for Acupuncture school.

She studied under the Orthopedic Acupuncturist who wrote the Ortho book for Acupuncture schools, and received hands on training at UCSD focusing on acute and chronic pain & trauma. She has also spent a year interning at Rady Children's Hospital working with patients who suffer from adverse reactions from chemotherapy and radiation, chronic pain, eating disorders, digestive illnesses, ulcerative colitis, and many more ailments.

Nalu specializes in pain management and the mental - emotional - physical connection. She pinpoints where we hold stress and emotions in the body and how they manifest as pain and ailments in the body. She uses orthopedic acupuncture to work with pain management, and the 5 Element theory and traditional Chinese medicine to work with the mental, emotional & spiritual connection using a mix of acupuncture, bodywork, cupping, sound healing & somatic healing in her treatments.

She is trained in multiple therapeutic techniques including acupuncture, fire cupping, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, electrical stimulation, moxibustion, gua sha, bodywork, sound healing, somatic healing, reiki, intuitive card reading & is currently a student of functional medicine.
