• Pain-free

    Acupuncture does not have to hurt. The word “needle” is perhaps the scariest part of the treatment.

  • Fast-acting

    We expect immediate results, and for most conditions we start with three treatments over the course of a few weeks.

  • Safe

    By law, all needles are sterile, disposable (used only once), and completely safe.

  • Effective

    Chinese medicine is the oldest, most established medical system in the world, and is recognized by the World Health Organization as effective for a wide variety of conditions.

  • Relaxing

    Most people find that an acupuncture treatment is a great opportunity to catch up on some much-needed rest.

  • Life-Changing

    Our philosophy is focused as much on improving your quality of life as it is on your medical condition. You may be surprised by how much richer your life can be with Chinese medicine.

Learn More About Us

We’re a little bit different from other clinics you may have been to, for acupuncture or otherwise. We expect you to take an active role in your treatment, to be curious, and to do some homework. We expect results, and quickly. If we don’t get them, we’ll be happy to refer you to someone whom we believe is better equipped to do so. In that vein, we also believe that no healing approach is superior to any other; each is appropriate for a given situation and to a different degree.

As acupuncture and Chinese medicine become more mainstream and less of a fringe medical option, the number of practitioners for you to choose from also increases. There are now about 20,000 licensed acupuncturists in the United States, with the greatest concentration right here in the Bay Area. As a potential patient, how do you choose the practitioner that’s right for you?
