Shani Cooper is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
Within her Integrative Medical Practice, Shani focuses on natural chronic pain management, digestion issues and Full Spectrum Birth Work from preconception to postpartum and beyond. She is passionate about people being able to fully live in their bodies and live their best lives. This passion has taken her to China to study directly with her teachers and mentors, and to bring the highest quality medicinal botanicals back to her patients. Shani incorporates cutting edge and evidence based mind and body therapies to treat everything from chronic pain, and digestive issues, to fatigue and autoimmune diseases. She offers integrative programs to address the postpartum and gynecological health utilizing the proper balance of science, botanical and traditional Chinese medicine, to encourage and work towards the World Health Organization’s definition of health: “a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

Shani practices in person out of her clinic in La Mesa and the San Diego Community Birth Center in Banker’s Hill, as well as providing virtual consultation and Telehealth. Shani is committed to providing better gynecology and birthwork solutions to reduce perinatal and infant mortality rates and trauma in marginalized communities knowing that it will improve the health outcomes in all communities.
