Roxanne Chan, DAOM, RN, LAc
Chan, DAOM, RN, LAc, 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 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 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. During more than 20 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
enjoys meditation, practicing qigong, spending time in nature with her family, and teaching weekly qigong classes. 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.
