After growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lili Gould moved to Philadelphia in 1996 to attend Bryn Mawr College where she studied Art History and French. After graduation in 2000, her studies took her to Paris, France and then to New York City where she explored a career at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. Deciding to enter the medical field, Lili then gained healthcare experience working for AmeriCorps and for a Philadelphia Aids Research Foundation. In 2003, Lili attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego where she received her Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine.

Completing an additional one-year training in Sports Medicine Acupuncture with the internationally renowned acupuncturist Matt Callison, Lili became a certified Sports Medicine Acupuncture Specialist in 2010. She has taught both in Matt Callison’s Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification program and at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Her studies and additional training in postural alignment and corrective exercises have created successful treatments for collegiate, Olympic, and professional athletes.

In the last few years, Lili has expanded her training to include Healing Touch, which is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way. Lili focuses her treatments on helping patients attune to their bodies’ innate healing abilities. The result has been a unique blend of Sports Medicine Acupuncture and energy medicine that directs the body to its natural homeostasis. 

In her spare time, Lili enjoys hiking and exploring San Diego with her two kids.
