Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

The medical system of acupuncture as taught and practiced in the US since the 1970’s. All acupuncturists must be licensed by the state of California and receive the professional title of Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.)

The scope of practice includes the needle insertion acupuncture as well as modalities designed to treat various conditions. These include but are not limited to cupping, moxibustion (I use jade rather than herbs), massage, infrared heat, the use of ointments & liniments, dietary & nutritional counseling as well as herbal remedies & supplements. I use both the Traditional & Balance Method’s of acupuncture treatment. I also offer “express” treatments designed to reduce the signs and symptoms of stress through shorter sessions of ear acupuncture.
