Lorelle Saxena loves boots, bicycling, and beet greens. The weekends she loves best are spent working in the garden and the kitchen with her husband Adam, their little son Kamal, and their elderly and immature mutt, Toby.
Lorelle was voted “Best Acupuncturist in Sonoma County” five years in a row in the North Bay Bohemian’s annual Reader Poll. Her work focuses on empowering patients to overcome health challenges through self-reflection, acupuncture, and subtle lifestyle shifts. Her training includes rotations at the San Diego Memorial Hospice, the UCSD Owen Clinic for HIV and AIDS patient care, and a free clinic for low-income senior citizens.
Lorelle’s practice is grounded in empathy, a keen interest in all things human, and an intention to raise the standard for healthcare everywhere. Her writing revolves around the shared human experience and finding the beautiful and extraordinary in everyday life. Her proudest accomplishment is being a nice person most of the time.
