Your Friendly Neighborhood Pin Lady


Greetings My Name is Tenisha Dandridge LAc.

I was born in Sacramento, CA and raised in a military family. I started my undergraduate at Morgan State University in electrical engineering and computer science. After the loss of my grandmother and multiple health crisis’s of my own, I became interested in natural medicine. I received both a B.S. and a M.S. in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University, one of the leading schools of Natural Medicine in the United States.

I began my first private practice in 2009 after graduating with over 1000 scholastic clinical hours in acupuncture and over 400 scholastic clinical hours with Chinese Herbal Medicine. My training at Bastyr included:

* 3 internships at Harborview Medical Center working with both HIV and other immune compromised individuals. Other duties included working with refugee patients with pain, traumatic injuries, and PTSD
