I went to see Shawna following an impact injury to the top of my left foot at my local gym which was in significant pain. I found her to be sensitive and caring in her medical approach. Her needling technique was imperceptible in most cases, and very comfortable overall. I was also happy to get an appointment shortly after contacting her. I found my experience with Shawna to be professional, calm, and effective. My discomfort was reduced noticeably the first evening, and 99% of the pain was gone in two days. The clinic location was clean and convenient with parking, and an easy stop to or from work close to major transportation. I would recommend Shawna to anyone considering acupuncture and/or moxa for treatment of their health issues.

Dale was fantastic! Not only did he perform the acupuncture, he worked with his office neighbor and she performed massage release therapy. Dale was extremely friendly and professional, he even paid my parking meter while I was laying down so I wouldn't get a ticket. The best part was my pain was reduced by 75% the next morning when I woke up. I will be going back to Dale with any future pain or health/wellness issues.

    I had the fortune of meeting Joe three years ago and at the time I had some high expectations for my overall fitness growth. Joe ended up becoming my one stop shop due to his immense knowledge in wellness and fitness. Some areas I have used Joe's expertise - Strength, flexibility, nutrition and therapy. Joe incorporates all these elements into his teaching and he makes it pretty simple. For my personal growth I have used his guidance with gymnastic style body weight and Kettlebells. What I truly appreciate the most is attention to form and injury prevention. Of course, along the way I have had my share of injurys and have sought Joe for therapy and acupuncture!! I have never done acupuncture before and Joe has made me a believer. I'm grateful for his guidance and as I head into my 40's I can say I'm stronger and healthier overall than ever before in my life.

      I lived with chronic shoulder pain for 15 years. I tried EVERYTHING! Physical therapy, massage, different styles of chiropractic, acupuncture. The list goes on. All of those techniques helped, but nothing got to the root of the problem. I would hit a plateau, they would stop care and it would come back a few months later. Then I found Connection Chiropractic. They use a very gentle technique that doesn't feel scary at all like some other kinds of adjustments. I saw results instantly! I just felt stronger and more connected to my body. The pain started reducing pretty quickly and now a year into my care here (and only getting adjusted once a month at this point) my left shoulder feels like my right shoulder!!! I didn't even know that was possible! The best part was starting to notice the other benefits I was receiving as well. I sleep better, I have more energy and I just don't react to stressful situations the same way. I feel much more even-keeled. Thank you Connection Chiropractic! I didn't know I could feel this great.

        Dr. Wu is an excellent doctor. I suffered from severe allergic rhinitis for more than twenty years. After seeing Dr. Wu for several times, all the symptoms were gone! It's really amazing! Dr. Wu has extensive knowledge, is very enthusiastic and tender. I strongly recommend her.

        I’ve sprained my ankle many times before, but never had such a quick recovery. David, who is my neighbor, brought me a Chinese herbal poultice and packed it over the egg- sized ankle. By morning it was merely swollen and he applied it again along with three acupuncture needles. The pain went away quickly and I stayed off it as much as I could. A month later you’d never know it happened.

        About

        Lamorinda Acupuncture and Healing Arts (LHA) is an integrative traditional Chinese medicine clinic offering effective and safe treatment of a broad range of chronic and acute medical issues. Our specialty is in the use of traditional Chinese medical techniques, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapies, tui na massage, and the integration of other modalities to form a holistic approach to treatment, in addition to being well versed in Western medical modalities. 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 over 12,000 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 who's right for you? Here at Lamorinda Healing Arts, we believe that your relationship with your practitioner is every bit as important to the healing process as your practitioner's skill with his or her modality of choice. You may go to several different acupuncturists who employ the same techniques, perhaps even use the same points, but with one you experience a much greater improvement than with others. Why is this? Our experience in practice tells us that, beyond technique, point selection or even the placebo effect, a patient's ability to feel comforted, heard, and understood by his or her practitioner, "good rapport", is essential to a positive outcome. We pride ourselves on taking the time necessary to hear you out, to really connect person-to-person, and tailor our treatment to your individual needs. Philosophically, we're a little bit unlike the other clinics you have previously been to, for acupuncture or otherwise. We expect you to be curious, take an active role in your treatment, and do some assignment. We are expecting for results and quickly. We'll be happy to refer you to someone whom we believe is more equipped to do so if we don't get them. In that vein, we also believe that no healing approach is superior to any other; each is suitable to a given degree and for a given situation. We are glad to work with you, together with your other practitioners, to find the correct mix of treatment options to meet your specific needs. We work extensively with other medical doctors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, craniosacral workers, and others who may complement what we do. Most of those currently practicing Chinese medicine were trained in what we like to call "communist Chinese medicine", the standards developed by the current government of mainland China. While we were trained and tested in these methods as well, we are primarily informed by precommunist styles of practice learned through our mentors and the continuing education we received from them. We see medicine as an art as much as a science, as a sociological experience as much as a scientific one. As such, the concept of a medical "practice" is quite a literal interpretation of what we do. Every interaction, every view of a given condition is a unique opportunity not only for you to learn about the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine but also for us to learn about your uniqueness in the context of your reasons for seeing us. Because to us, a medical practice is every bit as much a meditation on being human as it is a chance for healing and change.

        About

        I am a California state licensed acupuncturist and certified massage therapist who specializes in treating stress, anxiety, and painful conditions using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The TCM modalities I use include acupuncture, tui na therapeutic bodywork, cupping, moxibustion, and Chinese herbal medicine. Chinese medicine can be used to prevent problems, not just correct them. By keeping the body's energy in balance, health is maintained. This is true not only for physical fitness, but for mental and emotional health as well. I am also a practitioner and teacher of Filipino martial arts and Jeet Kune Do/MMA concepts, and as both an L.Ac. and CMT, I am especially qualified to understand and treat musculoskeletal pain issues that can arise from injury or years of use.

        About

I am passionate about helping my patients learn about themselves and become empowered to make needed changes to restore balance and gain strength in their physical and emotional lives. My style of care is to form partnerships with my patients, working together to achieve short- and long-term wellness goals. I believe in easy and open communication, providing a welcoming experience for all my patients, and ensuring that my patients feel listened to, cared for, and thoroughly supported.

        Q & A

        What are the benefits of acupuncture?

        There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

        How does acupuncture work?

        Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

        Is it safe to use acupuncture?

        The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

        The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

        How often do you need to get acupuncture?

        How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
