Dr Vickery has helped me with many problems over the years. She's knowledgable and kind. She listens to everything I have to say, makes suggestions that are usually things I can add to my life instead of making me have to change my life around some 'plan'. Highly recommend her. And the online sessions are just as good as going to her office. Except for missing out on acupuncture, but I can usually get an appointment for acupuncture if she thinks I need it. I'm glad she's taking care of herself during COVID - can't wait to have her in the office more often.
Dr. Vickery is a dedicated, professional, and compassionate health care provider! Her office is clean, welcoming, and friendly; with a lovely boutique in the reception area, and minimal in-office waiting times. Highly recommend scheduling an appointment if you are in the Woodland Hills, CA area.
I’m a walking, talking example of how well acupuncture works and that she takes the time to get to know and understand her patients.

My Philosophy of Care

I straddled two worlds for much of my early life. My parents were both very scientific, and both also believed there was 'more out there'. They encouraged me to investigate the 'more' whilst also guiding me towards traditional professions (Dad wanted me to be an engineer, Mom thought lawyering would look good on me – I went with computers even though 'girls' didn't go into computers in those days).

I was happily managing mini-mainframe computers when I had an opportunity to study massage. I thought I would be taking a bit of a vacation from work and then be returning to my position, but the company President, and the Universe, had other plans for me.

Leaving the comfort of IT to study massage was the first step on the path that eventually lead me to Traditional East Asian Medicine (TrEAMed)
After studying massage at a school founded and run by a practitioner of TrEAMed, I accompanied a friend to an introductory lecture at a local school. By the end of the evening, I had enrolled in the Masters program there.

I completed the didactic coursework just as the 1994 earthquake hit, which shook me up in more ways than one. Rather than move into my Clinical studies, I hit pause on my progress and turned to another field. I received a PhD and worked in that field for several years before returning to TrEAMed in 2000.

Taking time away from the profession meant a couple of things, including additional courses since the profession's standards had changed in the intervening half-decade. It also meant I had the advantage of graduating with the theories of the medicine well-integrated (I might not have been in TrEAMed school but I was still reading about the medicine and integrating the theories into my daily life), allowing me to hit the ground running as I ventured into private practice.

I've never looked back.

I still enjoying tearing apart and building computers (yes, I'm that person) but I thrive when I'm working with patients, helping them untangle their health concerns and discover or re-discover their bodies and body-minds.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Thorough.

We set all initial visits at 2-hours. Sometimes they go longer.

The time allows me to get to know the person who’s just come into my office.

We cover the reason you’ve come in, as well as your health history and what my colleagues – Complementary and Western – have diagnosed you with, done for your health and/or left on the table and not attended to.

We will talk about your goals, your expectations and your timeline.

And then you get to relax on the table for your first acupuncture treatment with me.

My Inspiration

Acupuncture:

Yes, it really is painless. Those little needles (I like to call them pins) are nothing like the needles your doctor uses to give you a shot. They’re solid, the thickness of a human hair and they just sneak into the acupoints with no pain.

There are different styles of acupuncture. I prefer the Japanese style, which is gentler. My patients still receive the benefits of the acupuncture treatment but with thinner needles and no ‘moving’ the needle once it’s in the body.

Face Yoga:

You’re going to have fun!

Be prepared to move the muscles of your face in new and different ways. And to laugh. And to discover that by moving your face you’re affecting the entire body.

Have been a client for a few years. She solved my chronic hives situation like nothing else I have tried. Allergists just adding more prescriptions to the mix. With acupuncture and follow Dia Vickery's advice I have been hive free and comfortable. I would highly recommend her!
It feels like home, a safe place – no judgment.
I have been a patient of Dr. Vickery’s since August of 2012. With her help in controlling the pain of fibromyalgia, I have enjoyed life to the fullest.”
I have been with Dr. Vickery for a few years due to chronic migraines. I have been in treatment for migraines for over 15 years and have not found anything that works. I have even had acupuncture before that was not helpful. However, Dr. Vickery has worked her magic and I have gone from having migraines 5 + days per week to having them one time per month. She is an amazing acupuncturist as well as an amazing person. She really takes the time to listen to your needs and I am very appreciative of that.
She is wonderful!! Dr Vickery and her staff are fantastic. Very accommodating and she takes her time to get to know what you need. She helped with my allergies, asthma, and fertility. Just love her.
I’ve had several treatments, and every experience has been great! There’s a very bright spiritual quality to Dia and I feel very relaxed and safe in her presence. I love her new (okay, newish) office.
