Lynn A. O'Connell, DAOM, L.Ac.
Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Dr. O'Connell specializes in herbal medicine which is effective in assisting fertility either in combination with or separate from acupuncture. She has been practicing herbal medicine for over fifteen years. She attended graduate school at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego where she studied acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. She is nationally certified in Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), which incorporates both acupuncture and Chinese herbology and is a licensed acupuncturist in the State of California (CA Acupuncture Board). Lynn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the State University of New York at Geneseo. 

While living abroad for five years in Ireland, England and Spain, Lynn discovered her passion for herbal medicine and decided to pursue a career in acupuncture and herbal medicine as a means to helping others. She started studying herbology while in Spain and later Argentina. She immediately became inspired by the medicine and developed an appreciation for the theory and interconnection between the various patterns, overall health and balance which the medicine aims to achieve. Oriental medicine treats the body as a whole to help it function at its optimal level. Many of its herbs are being "rediscovered" and various components extracted to be developed into medications. Chinese herbal medicine uses the herbs in their natural homeostatic state which makes them easier for the body to assimilate, avoiding harsh side-effects sometimes present with pharmaceutical drugs.

Lynn returned to the U.S. and eventually enrolled in a graduate program to continue her studies in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. She developed a passion for treating fertility issues with Chinese herbal remedies and helping couples in getting pregnant. She specializes in treating infertility in both men and women. She currently resides in Napa, California with her husband and children. In her spare time, Lynn enjoys camping, hiking, traveling, and of course, the art of preparing herbal formulas.

If you live in the bay area or find yourself vacationing in Napa Valley, you may also come in for an acupuncture or massage treatment. This is a great way to start fertility treatments, with a physical exam and consultation in person, then continuing herbal treatments and correspondence by phone and/or email with formulas mailed to you.
