Meet Dr. Persinger


Licensed acupuncturist L.Ac.

Board Certified Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine - Dipl.O.M.

Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Member of American Acupuncture council - AAC

Silver award best acupuncture

SD uptown magazine.

I received my Doctorate in Eastern medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego and my undergrad includes a western Premed and a degree in natural health sciences from Bastyr University, a naturopathic medical school in Seattle Washington.  I have been part of a botanical apprentice program and have years of community outreach with internships and volunteer work. I have continued development by studying with hundreds of subject matter experts and with continued exploration and development in many forms of energy healing including Theta Healing, hands on healing, crystal and stone therapies and with regular practice of Qi Gong and Kung Fu to build internal Qi. 

I first started down the path of natural healing at a young age, growing up in with a father who promoted this and spent years studying himself.  It became increasingly important and has remained a passion to study and share the fundamentals of restorative healthcare and self-awareness that we have lost with the race for quick cures and fast food medicine. I also have had a lifelong fascination with life on a molecular level, diving deep into chemistry and quantum physics. I was very fortunate to find this amazing field of eastern medicine that blends energy work with natural healing.  I am an artist at heart, and if you don’t find me with a project, I am probably in the garden or hiking


I have received the Silver Award for Acupuncture in San Diego’s Uptown Magazine.

My private practice is located in the Hillcrest area of San Diego.   I also work part time to at the Community Wellness Collaborative, Formally Adams Avenue community Clinic, a non-profit community health clinic in Normal Heights whose mission is to provide the community with a sustainable affordable integrative approach to healthcare.

What Robin's patients are saying

I saw Robin for acupuncture and even though I was scared of needles she was so gentle. She is very knowledgeable and a great healer. She focused on my problems and what I wanted done. She listened and explained everything to me.

Robin is extremely intuitive, listens well and so very talented! Highly highly recommend her!!

Jessica S.

Robin is a very gifted acupuncturist, and even does incredible bodywork if needed.  I always leave her sessions feeling on top of the world. She is terrific! I highly recommend, if even just for a "tune up".
