In my years of practice, dozens have come to me from Western doctors, unsatisfied or discouraged by Western medicine. I hope to offer an alternative means of diagnosis and treatment, helping those with little hope for their health. Building off of the traditions of Chinese medicine thousands of years old and combining their techniques with modern medicine, it is my desire to aid those with mysterious or difficult conditions. Treatment begins with the patient's desire to become better and I can facilitate this desire both in the clinic and on the phone.

The pain I encountered made me who I am today. In life...in my opinion, pain is not a necessarily a bad thing. It would point out the problematic area in your life and in your body. So, try not to mask the pain. Deal with it and see what you could come out of it.

I have over 35 years of practical experience and specializes in gentle and painless Japanese Acupuncture for all conditions, gender and age. Have you ever felt your symptoms come from somewhere else than physical and rather more psycho-emotional? Our emotions effect our physical condition greatly and vise versa. My approach is to see a person as a whole integration of mind-spirit-body. In Vedic medicine, it says “The primordial cause of disease (dis-ease) is forgetting that you are a spirit.” Celestial Acupuncture is for those who are striving on your spiritual path but little bit struggling with manifesting a true desire.

Acupuncture in Los Angeles County - 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. Los Angeles County 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.
Credentials for Los Angeles County licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in Los Angeles County needs a minimum of two years college education and must complete three years of professional training and pass the State's approved licensing examination. The three year program includes both theory and hands-on clinical practice. Most States' professional training programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
