Sarika Q Connor, L.Ac, Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM)® is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the state of California, as well as a nationally board certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. Sarika’s story begins with tragedy. At age 19 she suffered grave injuries from a car accident. It seemed like the chronic pain and being unable to use her left arm was now a fact of life. However, it was Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that gave her the biggest relief from pain. More importantly, it gave her hope. From then her purpose became providing her community with the incredible healing power of TCM. Her course was set, and she pursued and achieved her Masters of Science Degree in TCM at the prestigious Yo San University in Culver City, CA where she focused on Orthopedics and Women’s Health. Sarika’s ancestors have been acupuncturists for generations, and as a graduate of Yo San, she is now a 38th generation healer. Through her practice, Soma Acupuncture & Wellness, she specializes in Chronic Conditions including Neuropathy, as well as Sports Medicine and Women’s Health and Reproductive Medicine.

Sarika is currently  enrolled in the Post-Graduate Sports Medicine Acupuncture (C.SMA) Certification Program and is a Doctoral Candidate at Yo San University’s DAOM Program.
