Roxanne Chan, DAOM, RN, LAc
Dr. Roxanne Chan is
a licensed acupuncturist and registered nurse in the state of Alaska. Raised in North Carolina to first-generation Chinese
parents, she started her pursuit of health knowledge and healing in the field of nursing in 1999. Her first experiences on
a gastrointestinal medicine floor led to her interests in traditional Chinese diet and herbs. Upon traveling to mainland China
she was amazed by the breadth and application of acupressure, qigong, traditional herbs and diet for health maintenance by relatives
she visited in rural and urban settings. The desire for more study in Eastern medicine and culture moved her to the west coast
where she completed a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In 2006 she began her acupuncture practice in Anchorage. During her practice she completed a Doctor of Acupuncture
and Oriental Medicine degree at ACTCM in San Francisco and Shanghai with specialties in pain management
and women's health. Over the past 16 years in healthcare Roxanne has learned from her patients, hospitals,
teachers, traditional healers in China and Guatemala, mentorships with Robert Levine, L.Ac. and Eve Soldinger, L.Ac., various forms of healing with which to serve the Alaskan community. She looks forward to working together with you
on addressing your health concerns with offerings from traditional Chinese medicine and supporting you on your healing journey.
