I am a practitioner of traditional Japanese acupuncture and have studied extensively with master acupuncturist Koji Ichihashi of the Kurumadani School of Japan. Japanese acupuncture technique involves shallow insertion of very thin, delicate needles into points along the Meridians of the body. It is a relaxing spa-like treatment that is gentle and essentially pain free. This style incorporates medical Shiatsu massage while the needles are in the body. I give my patients self-care education, Qigong (energy movement), nutritional counseling and suggest Chinese herbal therapies and/or supplements in a nurturing environment.

I believe that there are three fundamental elements of a happy, contented life. One, we need to be able to eat, digest, and eliminate every day. Two, we need to be able to sleep well. Third, we need good sex life. Based on these three elements, we build life and pursuit dreams. However, stress, unhealthy diet and eating habits, and many environmental pollutions make the foundation of our lives unbalanced, thus, we experience depression, anxiety, digestive disorder and sexual dysfunction. My mission is to help people to build a healthy foundation of life with happiness an contentment.

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.

I believe people can heal themselves when given the right plan and priorities. I have been in practice for close to twenty years focusing on Acupuncture and Sports Medicine. During this time I have worked with professional athletes, musicians, recreational athletes, adults and children. My passion is taking someone who is acutely out of balance and seeing them through to full function. I do this by integrating acupuncture, acupressure, exercise, nutrition, breathing techniques, herbal therapies, and nutriceuticals.

Acupuncture in San Francisco - 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. San Francisco 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 San Francisco licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in San Francisco 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).
