Dr. Kim Peirano, DACM, L.Ac.
Dr. Kim Peirano, DACM, L.Ac. is the Owner and Acupuncturist behind Lion's Heart. Kim is a Doctorate of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine graduate from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and a Master’s of Science graduate from the Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA and a CA State Board Licensed Acupuncturist, she has been practicing acupuncture in San Francisco and the East Bay Area since December 2010. Kim's areas of expertise and specialties include Cosmetic Acupuncture & Micro-Current, Women's Health & Fertility, Spiritual Growth, Pain Management, Stress Management and Neurology & Paralysis Treatment.
As a healing practitioner, Kim's main goal is to make everyone who comes into her office, and life, feel at home, welcome and free from judgement. Kim believes that acupuncture doesn't need or have to be a certain way or fit into a certain box of parameters, her treatments vary from person to person in how she approaches her treatments and how she works with each individual. Tailoring each treatment to each individual and setting appropriate intention for the session is what makes her practice unique, combining styles and theories to make a truly custom and aligned experience for each individual.
Kim's healing mantra is that to be healthy one must be happy, she tries to employ this into her daily life and to help her patients grow in their lives and healing journeys using the same principle. Kim's focus with each client is to find a balanced path so that each individual can find their way to a better version of themselves in a fashion that is attainable. Kim believes that acupuncture is an incredible tool to use on your path for growth, whether that growth is physical (for healing ailments and injuries or improving organ functions), mental and emotional (working on stress and emotional healing) or spiritual (working on a more abstract path of growth and self discovery). It’s important to also remember that the path of true growth may not always be one of comfort, but sticking to this path can produce incredible outcomes and change. Kim’s ideal patient is one who is ready and willing to commit to their own path of growth, whether in great strides or tiny steps, they are wanting to commit to the path of growing and moving forward.
In addition to her acupuncture practice, Kim is a multi-faceted and unique individual; known to some as Kimba Rose, she is a DJ, Nightlife & Music Event Producer, Artist, Jeweler and Model. Her depth of creativity, humor and intuitive abilities bring a unique nature to her treatments and art projects, setting her World's apart from other practitioners. Kim’s background and training as a Jeweler, Sculptor and traditional Artist bridges the segway from Acupuncturist to Eyebrow Microblading Artist with ease. Her eye for detail, aesthetic taste and finely tuned fine motor skills are essential to producing the best brows you can find.
