Dia Vickery, LAC
Dia's dance with Oriental Medicine began slowly with shiatsu and massage training in the late '80s and working a variety of 'just jobs' to give herself time to consider her options and examine her passion. This also allowed her to start exploring the core ideas that form the Oriental Medicine framework. Her formal training in acupuncture began in 1992 when she enrolled in the Masters program at SAMRA University. Working during the day and attending classes at nights and on Saturdays, she completed her coursework in under two years finishing just as the Northridge earthquake shook everyone up. Deciding that she wasn't ready to continue on into the Clinic, she left SAMRA and turned to Theology. Finishing her PhD in 1996, she went on to work as Clergy-at-Large until late 2000 when she decided to complete her Oriental Medicine studies. After much research, Dia decided to finish at Emperor's College of Traditional Oriental Medicine. In 2001 she returned to school. Returning to the profession after so much time meant plenty of coursework, as well as Clinical study. She finished her Masters in 2003 and was licensed in 2004. In addition to treating private patients, Dia served as Dean of Students, instructor and assistant clinic supervisor at Emperor's College until August 2007. Feeling drawn to focus on treating patients, Dia left her position in the College's administration to start a full-time private practice in Tarzana, CA. She continued to teach at local acupuncture schools and hosts students as interns in her clinic. Dia's affinity with herbs and essential oils adds extra dimension to her treatments.

Learn about Dia Vickery

Care Philosophy

Where there is the free flow of Qi, there is no pain; where there is pain there is no free flow of Qi. This statement underlies the powerful simplicity of Acupuncture. Using the theories of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Dr. Vickery uses gentle acupuncture treatments to balance the flow of energy (Qi or Ch'i) in her patient's bodies, eliminating pain and restoring function. Dr. Vickery has found that gentle needling, similar to that performed by practitioners in Japan, can be as effective as the powerful needling traditionally performed by practitioners in China and Korea for the types of conditions she sees in her clinic. In addition to needles, Dr. Vickery uses Traditional Oriental medicinals to augment treatments and aid in her patient's return to health. Dr. Vickery is also an instructor at local acupuncture schools.
