We, the North Park Acupuncture family, would like to honor and pay tribute to Gayle Kildebeck(1957-2022). Gayle founded the North Park Acupuncture Clinic in 2001. She was committed to healing people and dedicated her life to this. She has left a wonderful legacy to the community, and we intend to carry that legacy forward and commit to healing patients.

Holly Halsey L.Ac. Dipl. Ac.

Practicing since 1989, Holly was inspired to pursue her career as an Acupuncturist and Body Therapist as a result of her own amazing results as a patient. After spending 4 years in Therapeutic Massage she began her studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) in San Diego in 1993 and graduated with honors in 1998. She is licensed nationally (NCCAOM/Dipl. Ac.) and in the State of California (L. Ac.) since 1999. An instructor of Asian Bodywork and Chinese Medical Theory at both Mueller College and PCOM, her massage specialty is Tui Na, the traditional massage protocol of China. She supervises both Acupuncture and Massage Interns toward the completion of their clinical hours required for their degrees and has taught both on-line and classroom versions of her classes at PCOM. She is a credentialed provider of continuing education for both Massage therapists and Acupuncturists.
