Joseph Zen, L.Ac. NCCAOM

My passion has always been to work in alternative medicine. I started out attending Chiropractic school, then half way through my Doctorate I changed interests and decided to study at Emperors College where I earned my degree in Oriental Medicine.

I am credited by the California Acupuncture Board and the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I interned at UCLA then traveled to East Asia for 1 year researching Acupuncture & Herbs. I returned to Los Angeles and worked in several clinics then eventually found my way to Bakersfield.

I now work full time using my experiences to heal and treat people with natural medicine. I have experience working with pain management, acupuncture-orthopedic, internal medicine, female conditions, and addictions. I would like to share my knowledge and commitment to natural medicine with the community of Bakersfield by being a friend to those who seek healing and wellness.
