Acupuncture and other modalities of Chinese Medicine (herbs, cupping, moxibustion, etc.) have been refined for thousands of years to treat the root of your symptoms and promote the self-healing and self-regulatory abilities of your body in a natural way. Acupuncture improves blood circulation while enhancing the body's anti-inflammatory processes. On a holistic level, Chinese Medicine treats you as a whole being - mind, body, and soul - as opposed to separate parts. We care about your emotional wellbeing, lifestyle, and diet, as they are all factors that contribute to your whole state of being.
In the hands of an experienced practitioner, Chinese Medicine can relieve pain, release muscle tension, reduce scar tissue, and address many internal conditions (such as those related to the immune, nervous, digestive, respiratory, circulatory and endocrine systems).
As a third-generation acupuncturist native to San Francisco, I have experienced and witnessed the profound effects of acupuncture and Chinese medicine my entire life. It has the ability to treat a wide range of physical and mental-emotional conditions, restore balance, and create positive, lasting changes in the body.
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished."
"Health is the greatest possession."
