Spirit Gate Medicine: Bonnie McLean: Oriental Medical Doctor, Acupuncture Physician
Doctor of Oriental Medicine Bonnie McLean practices in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, hypnosis and imagery and lifestyle counseling. She uses an integrative approach to health, specializing in acute and chronic pain conditions, stress-related disorders, habit control, women's health and allergies.
McLean holds a BSN from Duke University, a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Pepperdine University, a Doctor in Oriental Medicine degree from the California Acupuncture College, in Westwood, California, and certification in hypnosis from the state of Florida.
She states, “I believe that each person is their own healer, and that all natural healing approaches simply help catalyze an individual's ability to heal themselves. I enjoy helping stimulate my patients' innate ability to self-heal and educating them in reaching and maintaining their optimal level of health.
McLean is most passionate about the transformations we all experience as we go through life, saying, “To me, one of the most courageous things we can do is to face ourselves, confront our shadow parts and walk through them to the light that is always there on the other side. My goal is, once my patients have succeeded getting through the crisis that usually motivates them to seek help, they recognize if and when they need to return for an occasional ‘tune-up.’”
