"“I don’t think I’ve ever felt so relaxed in my ENTIRE life.” This is one of the most common things heard following a patient’s first treatment. Deyna’s patients initially make their way in run down from the daily pressures of work/life - a response to constant stress hampering recovery from pain and illness, and inhibiting optimal wellness. The benefits of acupuncture stem from transitioning out of this chronic state of imbalance, and back to its relaxed “rest and digest” state, which is imperative for the mind and body to heal. "

Acupuncture in 92108 - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. 92108 acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
