About Kate August, LAc

Kate August was born and raised in the Bay Area and finds inspiration by our diverse communities and landscape. She is a graduate of ACCHS in Oakland, where she received a Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She comes to the field with ten years experience as an educator and clinical western herbalist and is staff faculty at the California School of Herbal Studies. As an herbal medicine practitioner and acupuncturist, she believes in the body’s innate ability to heal when provided the correct support and environment.


The ebb and flow of the seasons is a guiding force for our well being & our emotional and physical bodies are deeply connected.  With this knowledge, Kate engages with the spiritual aspect of harmonizing the energy of the body with acupuncture, qigong, herbal medicine and nutritional support. With a particular interest in pain management and elderly support, Kate is honored to treat people during all stages of life. She believes that all people have the right to live comfortably in their minds & bodies. When not in the clinic you can find her playing in nature, preferably by the water’s edge.
