A second-generation acupuncturist, Angelica owes much of her life to the practice of acupuncture. Her father Frank Campanale LAc met her mother Kazuko Campanale while studying acupuncture in Osaka Japan. The name Angelica not only comes from her family’s Italian roots but is also the Latin name for a prominent herb used in Asian medicine. At the tender age of five years old Angelica started performing treatments on her father and even at this early age Angelica knew she had found her calling.
After earning her Degree, Angelica started working for a prominent Acupuncture and Orthopedic Medical center in the Silicon Valley, earning the position of Medical Director in just over two years. It was here she flourished providing treatment for orthopedic and repetitive stress injury, stress and related health issues, guiding patients through dietary consultations, and working in facial rejuvenation acupuncture.
Angelica believes that Traditional Chinese Medicine supports individual and community health through living a healthy lifestyle, supporting a robust immune system and bodily processes, decreasing stress, securing restful sleep and helping the body keep active by treating pain. Angelica enjoys indoor rock climbing, yoga, running, swimming, creating and eating delicious healthy meals, camping and leading group backpacking trips in the Trinity Alps.
