"Being a 65 year old woman, I can say from my own experience that I have been treated by a myriad of healing modalities... Although basically healthy, I've had my share of events that landed me in somewhat of a crisis.... I prefer subtler treatments as opposed to the typical western approach....
On a few occasions now, I found myself suffering from a very high fever, nausea and exhaustion. An intense pulled ligament in the knee, a back and sacrum in total spasm, and most recently, a concussion with intense side effects... On, not one, but all of these occasions (Linda) methodically asked me pertinent questions and performed a natural type of exam, ie reading pulses, looking at the tongue. Then she would bring me her homeopathic formula, and offer advice as to how to utilize it, healing foods to eat, etc etc.
On all these occasions I did what she said, and I'm not exaggerating, but I healed rapidly and in a balanced way.
Without taking heavy pharmecuticals, the side effect was increased joy for having my health return! Some people are naturally gifted. When you combine that with a powerful amount of knowledge and experience, you can approach the status of a healer.
I think Linda Scriven is such a healer, and I feel fortunate to have her help and care. Trust is a big issue in healing, and without a doubt, I trust in her ability & integrity 100 percent."

"Amber is a miracle, I cannot recommend her enough!
I started seeing her for Acupuncture a few months ago and the difference she has made in my life is unbelievable. She is absolutely lovely, such a genuine and caring person. She is incredibly knowledgeable and truly wants to help her clients. She makes you feel comfortable and right at home from day one.
I have suffered from severe migraines for the last 18 years and have seen doctor after doctor and tried every kind of migraine medicine out there all to no avail. I wish I had known about her years ago because she has changed my life by almost completely eradicating my migraines in just a few short months!
She has helped me in so many ways, from migraines to stress management to stomach issues. I cannot express the relief I feel leaving her office, I look forward to our sessions so much. If you have a need for acupuncture, go and see Amber she truly is one of a kind! I cannot recommend her enough!!!"

"Linda is an amazing homeopath.
Her depth and breadth of knowledge of both homeopathy and Chinese medicine allows her to see to the heart of the issues that her patients face...
She listens with kindness and compassion and she cares what people are going through. Because of her broad life experiences as a homeopath, teacher and mentor she has so much to offer to everyone and takes the time to talk with patients and help them solve their problems in addition to recommending a remedy, herbs or other modality.
I have been to many different doctors and practitioners in my life to help with problems of anxiety, panic, and fears.
Linda is one of the only ones that was able to help me with these problems and I no longer need to take any medications for these issues. I would recommend Linda to everybody!"

Get To Know Us & Our Families Clinic
We are a mother & daughter from England & our clinic has a wonderful story...
30 odd years ago Linda began studying Acupuncture directly under one of the worlds most renowned practitioners to date, Professor John Worsley. She was pregnant with Amber at the time & as Amber grew, so did Linda's Acupuncture practice (with a blonde toddler wandering around her feet).
Back to school: Later Linda's interest peaked again, but this time in Homeopathy. This led her back into the world of study. With the combo of Homeopathy & her Acupuncture training under her belt she was soon practicing holistic medicine with local Doctors, something that was pretty unheard of & so was very well respected across the UK at the time.
Profession: Her practice took her through labor & delivery at the local hospitals, cancer survival appointments, fertility clinics & home calls for the elderly, now with 2 children in the car. Eventually she was honored to hold a position at Helios pharmacy, making & proving some of the most effective Homeopathic products (we still use their products today, getting them shipped all the way to California for you guys to use because of their trusted efficacy in comparison to others!).
Journey: After moving to California in 2000, she practiced holistic medicine with animals, became the CEO & co-designer of software for Homeopaths to use in prescribing, she earned a deep education in Western herbology. Finally Linda decided to jump through the many, MANY hoops of gaining Acupuncture licensure in another country- this is no easy feat! Today she holds Acupuncture licensure in California & Europe.
During this time: Amber had grown up and was at college studying General Sciences. With a large interest in medicine & physiology that wasn't being satiated by modern techniques of healing, she began drawing on everything she had absorbed (via osmosis) as a child witnessing acupuncture treatments, holistic medical discussions, classroom activities, herbal & homeopathic prescribing & body work including acupuncture.
Cocktails of knowledge: She mixed them all together & unbeknownst to her mother, on her way to begin studying at UC Davis Amber took a detour to an Integrative Medical College. Inspired by her upbringing in an Acupuncture clinic & holistic household, she left UC Davis early to pursue a medical career that utilizes & furthers the integration of all the tools in the tool belt. Amber gained her Masters Degree in Oriental Sciences achieving a medical license in Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine in the state of California in 2010
Sharing: Quickly Amber began writing for numerous periodicals on her specific expertise & soon began being asked to teach professionals in yoga schools about holistic health & physiology across the Bay Area & in Costa Rica.
A clinic is born: With Linda's vast integrative back ground & Ambers passion for physiology & medicine the two combined their knowledge & opened this clinic almost 9 years ago. To this day they share in each others knowledge and continue growing their expertise in family & general medicine.
"We founded the clinic in Fall 2010 with the idea of integrating all the modalities we know & love to help you, & your family members, maintain great health."
"Together they are a combo that will drive your healthcare to the next level!"
