I do not simply attempt to treat symptoms, nor do I treat diseases. I treat people. My focus in practicing TCM is holistic; I seek to understand the entire person and the health pattern they have. As you will hear in the testimonial videos on my website, the feedback I get from my patients speaks not only to the effectiveness of my treatments in getting the results they need, but to the safety, comfort and ease they feel when they come in for their appointments. I am interested in being my patients’ partner in meeting their complete health goals.

Acupuncture in 94123 - 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. 94123 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.
