Dr. Atil Narayan, DACM, L.Ac.
Hi, I’m Atil. My journey into natural medicine began in 1993. It started with an interest in Asian and native American philosophies and evolved into the formal study of Chinese medicine resulting in a Masters degree then ultimately a doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I am the founder of Natural Wonders Healthcare, a wellness clinic specializing in natural pain relief. I’ve performed over 20,000 acupuncture treatments and have been acknowledged for my dedication and commitment to acupuncture by Gil Cedillo, 46th District Representative of the California State Assembly. Providing natural healing using acupuncture, cupping, far infrared heat, gua sha, salves, and herbs to help my patients obtain mind/body healing is one of the greatest joys of my life. Being able to work with a caring team makes it sweeter.
In my personal life, I love spending time with my wife conversing about virtually everything and relishing the flavors of different foods. I’m a dad to 2 daughters who I absolutely adore. They have pet goats, chickens, and rabbits. I also enjoy gardening as a source of exercise, learning, and peace.
Dr. Yu-Hua (Yu) Hsieh, Ph.D. L.Ac
Hello, I’m Yu-Hua. I joined the Natural Wonders Healthcare team on 2/1/2019. I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology with extensive clinical study experience. Before obtaining my Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine license, I was a cancer researcher at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After more than ten years of basic cancer research, I realized that Western Medicine is not the only method of relieving illness, such as chronic pain, insomnia, etc. This drove me to seek more knowledge in the area of acupuncture and herbal medicine. It is important to treat the patient holistically and to provide them with a sense of peace, balance, and harmony.
In my personal life, I love to study historical culture, especially Chinese Archaeology. I believe there is wisdom that can be acquired from the past. In addition, l like cooking and painting.
Hi, I’m Yvonne and I have been part of the Natural Wonders Healthcare family since 2016. I have been involved in natural medicine my whole adult life. In the past, I’ve managed front and back offices for busy, heart-centered, chiropractic doctors. I took some time off to raise my son and daughter. When they got older, I was able to return to an industry I’m passionate about. Natural Wonders Healthcare was a perfect fit for me. It is thrilling to be part of such a dedicated team. Every day we are committed to improving our patients’ health so they can live a better life.
In my personal life, I enjoy dabbling with aromatherapy, tending to my plumeria collection (I have over 100 plants!), and being someone who tries to create memorable experiences for my family.
Salinla Ounsakulseree, L.Ac., MSOM
BOARD LICENSED ACUPUNCTURIST
Hi, my name is Salinla. I am a California board licensed Acupuncturist. I became part of the Natural Wonders Healthcare team in November of 2019. As a young girl, I always dreamed of working in healthcare services to help others in need. I was originally a biochemistry student who believed Western medicine has a lot of benefits and later realized that there are some underlying concerns since it depends heavily on pharmaceutical drugs. I became interested in natural remedies and the Eastern approach towards medicine after taking several classes about herbs and acupuncture theory. I was inspired by the concept of natural healing which resulted in a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, eating and trying food at new places. I also love to paint, it’ a great way to relieve stress and work on my artistic side.
Hi. My name is Sylissa and I have been working at Natural Wonders Healthcare since 2017. It is rewarding to see our patients leave our office feeling better. I feel honored to be part of their healing experience. Natural Wonders Healthcare has also re-established my faith in the healthcare industry. Working here has allowed me to grow personally in other areas of my life including being a more focused college student.
In my personal time, I enjoy baking deserts (which I’m told are scrumptious!), having fun with my kid sister and friends, and bringing an artistic flair to everything I do.

Hello, my name is Jolene and I have been a part of the Natural Wonders Healthcare family since 2019.
I am a medical front office support staff with a specialty in medical coding and billing. Working at this clinic has been life changing. I’ve gained a lot of personal and professional knowledge about natural health.
Hearing from our patients on how herbs and acupuncture helps is so satisfying. Nobody wants to feel uncomfortable in their own body and knowing that they leave here with ease and relief is amazing. I learn so much from our staff and also our patients. Working with a dedicated and supportive team is empowering.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my silly son, making new or re-creating recipes (obsessed with my instant-pot), going for long hikes, and going to Zumba (Love to dance!).
