Transcend Health and Wellness is an integrative, holistic health services clinic, combining 2500+ years of tradition in Chinese medicine with modern, biomedical research and evidence-based practice. We offer specialized care for mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions, as well as general/family medicine, women’s health, and adjunctive transgender care.
At Transcend, we believe our role is to empower and support you in being the agent of your healing process—we believe you are your own healer. We help facilitate this through customized treatment plans for each individual, applying both ancient and modern modalities to provide a powerful and safe alternative to exclusively Western medicine.
We also believe that healing essentially includes the evolution and development of your spirit and heart’s path, necessitating the transformation of past traumas to release one’s potential for the benefit of self and service to others. What makes you feel whole? What in your life or history prevents you from feeling totally whole? What does it mean to you, to transcend simply being healthy and well?
Avery Grace is legally certified as a primary care provider, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist (L.Ac.), and has provided integrative and holistic healthcare since 2010, both in the U.S. and China. Avery has also worked as an educator for twenty years, including facilitating mindfulness and somatic-based trauma recovery techniques. Avery was an adjunctive faculty member at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco, teaching various Chinese and Western Medicine topics.
Avery has worked extensively with UCSF’s Center for Excellence in Transgender Care, and has been a regular participant in the annual Transgender Health Summit. Avery’s clinical experience in the U.S. includes integrative treatment in the Stroke Rehabilitation Ward at California Pacific Medical Center, the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic serving the unhoused community and those seeking addictions recovery, San Francisco AIDS Foundation and Bay Area Young Positives, a 501(c)3 providing services to HIV+ youth.
Often praised for a bedside manner that puts patients at ease, Avery is very centered, accepting and receptive; Avery has deep integrity, treating and teaching from experience. “I never suggest things to patients that I wouldn’t try myself,” Avery says. “I love the satisfaction in being part of a process in which someone else changes their life.” Avery has a deep affinity for the health and wellness concerns of trans and queer individuals, having personally relied on Chinese medicine while transitioning as a transfeminine, non-binary person (they/them pronouns).
