Tamara is a graduate of SAMRA University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, the oldest school of Oriental Medicine in the United States, and has been in private practice since 1996.
Tamara is a second generation practitioner of Acupuncture and Holistic Health who has been very influenced by her life-long exposure to the Healing Arts.
Tamara grew up with a pioneer in the field of Holistic Health and Integrative Medicine, her father Michael Graf M.D. After practicing Internal Medicine for many years, in the 1960’s he began studying and integrating Acupuncture and other natural healing modalities into his practice. He also became the founder and President of the American Academy of Auricular Medicine and Scientific Acupuncture.
Some of Tamara’s earliest memories of her father’s influence were being able to go along with him when he made house calls and experiencing the appreciation from his patients. This led to years of assisting him in both his Medical and Acupuncture practice where she witnessed many amazing transformations.
“After all the years I spent exposed to these healing modalities, it never ceases to amaze me what people are willing to put themselves through before they’ll even consider an alternative form of healing.” ~ Tamara
