About The Practitioner
Russell Koester is a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of California and maintains national certification through the NCCAOM as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.). A recent transplant from Santa Cruz, California where he served the Monterey Peninsula at Pacific Grove Acupuncture and in Santa Cruz with his private practice, Russell looks forward to growing roots in his new community around the Sebastopol area. Russell is specializing in herbal dermatology and also has a strong focus in orthopedic acupuncture and treating chronic illnesses.
Prior to growing his knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Russell spent his time in concert halls and class rooms as a preforming musician, teacher and avid supporter of the arts. As a professional musician, he learned the dual importance of diligent study and creative expression. The skills cultivated in the study of music, his personal journey in meditation, martial arts, and the study of classical Chinese texts all serve him in his current practice.
Russell’s latest endeavor is fatherhood and the fine art of dad-jokes. Outside of the clinic you can find him playing with his daughter, Imogen, and partner, Hannah. You might also run into him at the farmer’s market, hiking, mountain biking or rock climbing.
