San Jose Licensed Acupuncturist Cathryn Davidson

Cathryn Davidson, L. Ac.

Fertility, Complex cases

Cathryn Davidson, L.Ac, M.Ac, has been working at Lokahi since April, 2015.
Cathryn specializes in treating women’s health concerns, with a particular focus on reproductive and fertility challenges. She helps support women throughout their fertility journey, including pregnancy and postpartum. Cathryn treats a wide range of issues, including endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), unexplained infertility, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), dysmenorrhea (painful menstrual cycles), irregular menstrual cycles, hormone imbalances, stress, anxiety, and sleep issues.

It is her goal to help every person feel agency in their health care; to be seen, heard, and respected for who they are in their own unique challenges.

Cathryn started studying alternative healing when she was 10 years old and raided her mother’s library for books on herbal wildcrafting. When an injury retired her from professional dancing, Cathryn turned to acupuncture, and found not only relief from pain, but a path and purpose in life.

Cathryn completed an undergraduate program at Naropa University in Boulder, CO in 2005 where she created her own major on the intersection of ecopsychology, ritual, and traditional healing. Cathryn graduated from Five Branches University, completing a Masters in Acupuncture in 2010. She joined the Five Branches doctoral program in 2013 with a focus on Women’s Health and Fertility.

Cathryn spends her free time cooking, baking, meal planning, researching food, and reading cookbooks. She also enjoys sewing, hiking, rock climbing, and playing board games with her family. Currently, Cathryn is working on creating a fertility coaching program to guide women through the often overwhelming world of trying to conceive.

I have been going to Cathryn acupuncture for 4 years now and LOVE it! She’s helped me through two pregnancies and has a wealth of knowledge that allows her to provide service through needles, cupping, herbs, and conversation. Lokahi is an excellent, clean, and calm facility. They take precautions to handle covid risks responsibly while still being available for their clients.

I love going to my acupuncture appointments here, it really calms me and I definitely feel my stress melting away when I have an appointment! The space is very relaxing and tranquil. I mainly go to Cathryn and she’s so amazing, friendly, and compassionate! I’ve also had appointments with Susanna, Anna, and Katy and they are all wonderful! Can’t speak more highly about Lokahi!

Love Cathryn! She is very patient and truly cares. Her bedside manner is amazing as I feel heard and valued as a patient. I appreciate how she always thinks about my lower back pain and makes me comfortable for my treatment. I rave about her to my friends and colleagues. I would leave the practice if she left as I value her that much.

What a wonderful first session I had with Cathryn. I of course was a little nervous but was put at ease as soon as I walked in the door I felt quickly calm and excited. Cathryn is amazing and she was so thoughtful, informative and compassionate. I feel so wonderful! I look forward to my next appointment.

Cathryn always makes me feel like I am her only patient. She always is up to speed on my cycle and provides a treatment protocol specific to my situation each week. I’m so grateful for the care Cathryn has provided me throughout my lengthy fertility journey.
