Laura Schlieske, L.Ac.

Laura Schlieske received a Masters degree of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine in 2006 and licensed in 2007. Originally from Minneapolis, MN, where she was introduced and convinced of the many benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, Laura moved to Santa Barbara in 2003. After obtaining her license, Laura maintained a private practice, but decided there was a disconnect with the high prices and frequency needed to actually get results from acupuncture. She was contacted by Jennifer Potthast to collaborate her vision to start a community clinic – and the rest is history.
